While we were in Split last Summer, I had the chance to climb up the Cathedral of Saint Dominus Bell Tower for a great view of Split! Climbing this bell tower gives you the best views of the city and bay, and is one of the best things to do in Split. With some very […]
The Sky Garden is one of the best kept secrets in London, and best of all it’s completely free. Located on the 35th floor of the “Walkie Talkie” building (or 20 Fenchurch Street to give it it’s actual name), the Sky Garden offers incredible 360 degree views from the floor-to-ceiling glass-walled public garden – “The […]

Before we start…. I don’t hate Vienna!I enjoyed visiting back in February this year, and I’m really glad I’ve been.
