Steps, steps and more steps

Today we slept until 9:00 but that was only 8 hours of sleep. I woke up tired and for a 4 star hotel was very disappointed with breakfast. The bacon was over cooked, the egg wasn’t great and the corn flakes were weird. Afterwards we got ready and were told we will be out from […]

Paris, I Louvre you

Today was my last day in Paris and the last day of my trip. Tomorrow I head home to Cape Town! It has been a wonderful holiday! I have been so spoilt to have seen all the amazing places I did. This morning I went to the Louvre. Such a huge building with so many […]

Paradise found

I was up bright and early this morning for my second bike tour. I enjoyed a delicious caramel and banana waffel before we got started. We headed out just before 9am, towards Palace of Versailles. Once there we got on our bikes and headed off.  On our way we first stopped at an amazing food […]

Tournament day!

Late night and an early start didn’t help. We started today with breakfast and then we went to the national Slovak sports center. This was a very eye opening experience. We sat in a hall with the hall of fame which was cool. Knew most of the recent winners which was cool. The place we […]

Eiffel hard for this city

Today was my first full day in Paris. I headed for the metro first thing this morning to my organized bike tour. The metro was so busy and so full but eventually I made it to the cafe. Before the bike tour started I squeezed in a crossiant. It was delicious. The bike tour took […]

Full day in Bratislava

Overslept this morning which isn’t the best. We were messaged that we needed to be down at 9:15 to sign something but we were sleeping and only woke up at 9:00. This meant we had to get ready in 15min and had another 15min before we left. Luckily all was good and we left on […]

Paris is calling and I must go!

I took it easy this morning with a lovely, late breakfast. Then packed up all my things and headed for Paris. I had booked a train to Paris. I was a bit nervous as I had never done anything like this before, but it was super easy and efficient. Once here, I caught a taxi […]

Budapest-Vienna-Bratislava

Today we were able to wake up an hour later which was nice. We had our last breakfast in Budapest which was sad but also exciting. We packed our bags and hopped into our bus which would take us to Bratislava through Vienna. On our way to Vienna which is about 5 hours, we got […]

Royals and artists

It was so nice to have a little lie in this morning and not have to rush out. After getting ready and eating a lovely breakfast I headed out to Amsterdam once again. I have always loved the royal families and so decided to visit the Amsterdam Royal Palace. It was so wonderful in there. […]

Fun in the sun

Started today bright and early once again. Went to practice again and this time it was better because I was used to it. Today we used the subway to get to practice. This was a great experience and was much quicker than the tram. To get underground you go down a steep elevator. It feels […]
