Weekend Trip Series


Its been a while since I actually posted my own content as I’ve been busy settling in my new job and city and just havent fully gotten around to writing and posting.

Since starting my new job, I’ve spent many a weekends away on great trips. Coming up in the coming weeks is a catch up of a few posts on these trips. This “Weekend Trip Series” will be more focused on offering my itinerary of spontaneous weekend trips to various destinations. I’ll cover where I stayed, where I ate, what I did, some of the things to note for last minute weekend trips or layovers in these destinations and what I loved about them, because so far none have disappointed. In some case I will probably offer a quick personal thought.

I think the point of this series is more to offer a sample itinerary of what one can potentially do in 24 hours/ a weekend in a given city/ country rather than a full on review of the hotels and restaurants and sites I visited. I will try to include tips, notes, warnings or if some place was truly not good, I will be sure to mention it.

Ill update the below list with hyperlinks as I post each city/ country, and it is now my new goal to continue updating once I return from a trip, instead of slacking like I have been doing in the last 6 months.
