Three days in Sofia, Bulgaria, for less than £50

My first 20 minutes in Sofia were spent sitting on the floor outside the airport wondering how I was going to get to my hostel. Uber, unfortunately, hasn't quite crossed the borders to Bulgaria yet so any dreams I had of wordlessly making it to Hostel Mostel with the help of a nice, anonymous Uber … Continue reading Three days in Sofia, Bulgaria, for less than £50

Stopping off in Bratislava en route to Budapest

I’ve always usually spent my actual day of birth doing Not Much – either through everyone being busy or not planning anything until it’s too late. A benefit of getting older, I have … Continue reading Spending my 20th birthday in Berlin
