Czech Republic: Prague – Places serving vegan food

We recently spent 3 days in the amazing city of Prague. During our time there we decided to check out what the city had to offer in term of vegan eateries. There were two we really liked; Forkys – a fast food place with burgers and bowls and Vegan’s – a restaurant with great views of the castle from its terrace serving traditional Czech food as well as International options.

Italy: Rome – A 3 Day Itinerary for the Eternal City

Rome, the “Eternal City” is a fascinating place to visit and there are so many places to visit. We were lucky enough to be able to spend 3 days exploring this amazing city.
We loved our time in Rome but there are, as with many of the major cities, multitudes of tourists which makes the main tourist attractions very crowded. It is worth checking out tours that enable to bypass the lines – these can be pricey but if you don’t like getting up at the crack of sparrows and camping outside hours ahead then you might want to consider this option.

Czech Republic: Prague – U Páva (Accommodation Review)

For our stay in Prague we wanted to stay close to city centre as we planned to walk everywhere. After looking around on hotel booking websites I decided to book a room at U Páva – which means ‘At the Peacock’ in Czech. The hotel is ideally placed to explore the surrounding markets, museums and historic buildings of Mala Strana, but it’s also just a 15-minute stroll across the bridge to the Old Town. It is only a 10-minute walk to Prague Castle.

Italy: Rome – Appian Way and the Catacombs

I thought it would be great to escape the hustle and bustle of the centre of Rome and escape to the countryside for a few hours. We took an e-cycle tour following parts of the Appian Way to visit the largest Catacombs in Rome and see the amazing aqueducts feeding the city.

This was an amazing day and we loved every minute. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Our guide was fantastic, the people at TopBike were so friendly and helpful and we absolutely loved the e-bikes – in fact Karen is determined to buy one.
