Part 1: A naked sauna and celebrity-inspired food tour in Berlin

Following the Expedia Bloggers’ competition, I was thrilled to win a trip to Berlin and couldn’t wait to start checking out the city. We had a full itinerary that would see us explore alternative activities for five days before returning to London.

Upon arrival at Berlin Tegel Airport, we were picked up by our driver Alex, a warm and friendly character that was happy to chat and discuss the city and his recommendations for things to do. Upon arrival at Eurostars Hotel Berlin, we checked in, got our bearings and then set out to meet our guide from Berlinagenten: Gastro-Rallye Hip East – Unique Foodie Private Walking Tour in Berlin for an insight to the hidden treasures of Berlin.

An ‘alternative’ visit to Berlin #byExpedia

expedia-logoFollowing my entry to the Berlin Bloggers’ competition by Expedia, I was thrilled to have a winning entry that gave my boyfriend and I the chance to take a five-day trip to the capital of Germany. As part of the trip, I was able to choose a hotel stay, opting for the five-star Eurostars Hotel located in the heart of Berlin with flights from Heathrow with Lufthansa.

I had proposed taking an alternative visit to the city, as whilst I love taking in the historical elements of a destination, I was particularly interested to learn about modern Berlin and the lifestyle that exists today. With that objective in mind, I set about choosing the following activities to be arranged by Expedia to contribute to our January visit to Germany’s capital city: Continue reading An ‘alternative’ visit to Berlin #byExpedia

My growing travel list for 2013; what’s on your itinerary?

I’ve been reflecting on the year of travel that was 2012. It’s officially behind us and gosh, it was a busy one.

From changing jobs to founding The Ad-lib Traveller, discovering new getaways to learning more about those close to me,  it’s been an exciting learning curve that has enlightened me at every step of the way. I’ve enjoyed group travel in Bangkok and Koh Samui, Thailand, trips with my partner to destinations like Budapest as well as dates in and around our home city of London to places like Banana Tree and Wong Kei’s. Not only this, but I’ve also shared company with friends at places like Caribbean Scene Royale and other trips like taking my younger sister on her first city break to Dublin. I’ve also been fortunate enough to help out with the London 2012 Olympics – a once in a lifetime opportunity that was again a fun experience.

It’s been an amazing year and has continued to go from strength to strength; I’ve appreciated and enjoyed every trip that has come my way and there is so much more to come – which brings me into this blog post. Whilst reflecting on 2012, I’ve been busy setting out a growing list of travel plans for 2013 – get a sneaky preview of the first quarter of the year outlined below.
