The Hidden Secrets of Gloucester Prison

The Hidden Secrets of Gloucester Prison

Gloucester Prison will reveal its secrets of hidden bodies and unknown medieval structures to anyone who dares to witness the incarceration dating over 200 years. Where on earth is Gloucester? A funny little city that most haven’t heard of – unless you’re a Potterhead of course. Despite it’s closeness to Bristol and links with its horse racing cousin – Cheltenham – Gloucester remains fairly unseen even by those who reside in England. Steeped in history, the Gloucester Cathedral and Dock area has…

London’s hidden restaurant that will awaken your senses

London’s hidden restaurant that will awaken your senses

Hidden within London is a little place called Farringdon. And there lies Dans Le Noir – a hidden London Restaurant. From the outside, it looks like a dodgy massage house with its blacked out windows, but translate the name to ‘In the Dark’ and all becomes clear. Upon entering to the well-lit lobby, you are presented with your menu options; Meat, Fish, Vegetarian or Chef’s Choice. Next you select the number of courses, we opted for two courses – starter…

Adrenaline Junkie Cocktails

Adrenaline Junkie Cocktails

It’s been three months since I’ve travelled, and another three months until I jet off again, so the wanderlust has reached no bounds as I’ve started to visit every hipster coffee shop and coffee bar in the local vicinity just looking for that little bit of excitement. Aluna UK, one of Bristol’s newest bars, definitely garnered my attention with its tantalising decor and creative cocktail menu. Although, I admit I did that thing again where I just happen to walk past…

Life is a Cabaret, old chum.

Life is a Cabaret, old chum.

You’d think I’d learnt my lesson after a certain ‘ManFrancisco’, where I took my chum to experience her first male ‘strip’ show, except it was less Magic Mike and more Broke back Mountain (Should’ve known with it being in San Francisco’s Castro). But when I saw Proud Cabaret in Brighton, 10 minutes walk from our guest house, I thought – hey! This is going to be great! Walking in I was in awe of the dimly lit venue, crowded with…

The Northern Lights with Iceland Guided Tours

The Northern Lights with Iceland Guided Tours

First and foremost, it’s important to remember that the Northern Lights are never guaranteed as there are a number of factors that can affect their appearance. This is why we chose Iceland Guided Tours to lead our Northern Lights, because they have a great policy for no-shows. Working with the university, tour operators receive extremely accurate data surrounding weather conditions and magnetic charge so they are able to notify you by 5pm if the conditions are favorable, if they are…

How to drink Wódka

How to drink Wódka

Tatanka is the BEST way to drink Wódka. Despite losing my Tatanka virginity in a bar named ‘Alchemia’, this polish cocktail is so effortless that even the most futile cocktail maker can produce it! And it goes something like this… 4 parts apple juice 2 parts Żubrówka (Otherwise known as Bisongrass Vodka) Garnish with cinnamon I could sit here and gush about how it literally tastes like liquid apple pie, but www.zubrowka.co.uk offers a more refined definition. ‘The sweetness and…

Sleep-deprived thoughts I had while approaching our hostel

Sleep-deprived thoughts I had while approaching our hostel

Sleep-deprived thoughts I had while approaching our hostel in Krakow; “OK so we’re staying in a hostel. I’m not sure I like hostels. It’s ok you have a private room. You’ll only be there to sleep. Is this a safe part of town? I hope the beds will be comfortable. I heard someone had no curtains in their hostel? Oh god, I hope they have curtains!” It’s ok, they had curtains. And I survived. Our hostel resembled that of a…

The Krakow milk bar you HAVE to visit

The Krakow milk bar you HAVE to visit

No I’m not suggesting you go milk sampling in the centre of Krakow, but rather taste some of ‘Grandmas’ delicious homemade dumplings at U Babci Maliny – a traditional polish canteen. Those keen eyed travellers who spot the small sign down Sławkowska street will wander through a strange building wondering how there could possibly be a hidden canteen here, and then soon be directed to the not-so-secret basement traditional milk bar. You’ll be welcomed into a homely wooden ‘house’ complete…
