    The Best Golden Circle Tour // Get Off-The-Beaten-Path With Eastwest Iceland

    Disclaimer: I was welcomed as a guest on EastWest Iceland’s Golden Circle & Waterfalls tour. All opinions, as always, are my own.

Because of its popularity, there are absolutely loads of tour companies to choose from should you not want to drive for one reason or another (like not wanting to deal with the…

    If you’re looking to go on a Snaefellsnes day trip, there’s no better way than to take a Snæfellsnes Peninsula Tour with EastWest Iceland. Here’s my full review! (Note: I was a guest of EastWest Iceland in exchange for my honest review. All opinons are, as always, my own.) There were a few things I knew immediately when I booked my trip to travel solo to Iceland this past December. Number 1: there was no way in hell I was going to drive on my own on treacherous winter roads. If I wanted to see more of Iceland outside of Reykjavik, I was going to have to go on some…

    How to Take a Vienna to Salzburg Day Trip

    Although it can be a bit of a trek, a Vienna to Salzburg day trip is totally doable. This post covers how to make the best of your Vienna to Salzburg day trip, including how to get from Vienna to Salzburg and all of the best things to do in Salzburg. When Astrid and Leoni first suggested taking a day trip to Salzburg from Vienna, I thought they were crazy. A two-hour train ride away, a Vienna to Salzburg day trip is never something that I would attempt on my own. But they were insistent, and because I was pretty excited about the idea of seeing Salzburg again (I first…

    Finding Bliss in Bruges

    I’m not going to lie. I didn’t fall in love with Brussels. Sure, it was fine, but it didn’t wow me or anything. After one full day there, I was more than looking forward to my day trip to Bruges. I set my alarm for early, early, early the morning I intended to go to Bruges. But, as usual, I didn’t actually make it out of bed until 9:30 or 10. From there, I had to make my way to Brussels central station. And then I waited another 40 minutes for the next train to Bruges. So yeah, I lost a lot of time sleeping/in transit that I could have…
