Exploring Stuttgart, Germany: A Travel Wishlist

Germany has always been a country I’ve wanted to visit, from the culture to the history and in some cities, the night life. So when my auntie Val called up asking if we’d like to visit her in Stuttgart (back in 2006!), I jumped at the chance.

Gothenburg at Easter: A trip down memory lane

I’ve been to Gothenburg (Sweden) a couple of times as a teenager, but haven’t had the opportunity to go since then, which is a shame. It’s such a beautiful coastal city full of stunning architecture and picturesque gardens. Although my main reason for going at the time wasn’t the sights.

Goth-Con is an annual event held over Easter break at the stunning Hvitfeldtska Gymnasiet building (a high school in Gothenburg). I entered a couple of trading card tournaments while I was there, one for UFS […]

We went from a rainy 10°C to a whopping 30°C […]
