Recent Trip To London

Michael 84 In London

Hey guys!

Several weeks ago I was in London when I was showcasing Life splicing for Virgin Trains, and although it was a super quick stop off in London, it was great to have a small look around to stretch my legs and check out the big city.

I love London but don’t go as much as I’d like. Since I was down there anyway I decided to check out the usual tourist spots and just have a look around the city. It was a gloomy January as you can see from the photos, and it’s kind of a different place to when I’ve been either on the weekend or in the Summer.

Getting Stuff Done With Virgin Trains

Life-Splicing With Virgin Trains

Life is so busy these days! We have our personal life, work life and then there’s the online world and social media which can take up so much of your time it’s crazy. At times it can feel like there’s not enough hours in the day to do everything we need to, and everything we want to.

Getting stuff done on the move is becoming increasingly important and increasingly popular for us to do, and I have partnered with Virgin Trains on the East Coast in their get stuff done challenge on a journey from Newcastle to London.

TBT – Visiting Copenhagen – Exactly A Year Ago!

copenhagen-tivoli-6

How time flies!

I can’t believe that it’s exactly a year ago when I visited Copenhagen for the first time! I’ve always wanted to go, and it did not let me down, it was great. It is of course Christmas time, with Christmas markets and the city was so Christmassy, definitely the place to be and probably the best time to go with so much to see and do. I thought about doing another Christmas Market this year, and looked at Munich, but decided not to go. Munich could be cool, but it’s not a place where I’ve always wanted to visit, not that I’d never go, but it’s not high on my list of places I want to go to, so decided to not bother.

TBT Tivoli Copenhagen 2015

copenhagen-tivoli-1

I can’t believe how fast this year is going, and that I went to Copenhagen almost a year ago! I went just before the Christmas period, when all the Christmas markets were on, and it was the first time I had been to Copenhagen. It’s such a cool place, if you ever get the chance of visiting the city I’d definitely advise going, especially during the festive period. Tivoli at Christmas is such a good time, that and the rest of the city are so festive and it could possibly be the best time to go, as there’s so much more to see and do.

One of the highlights is going to Tivoli, which is like an amusement part, but so much more than that. It’s cool if you just want to go for a look around, it’s fairly sizable, and there’s rides like the old wooden rollercoaster and a 5G “Dive bomb” style ride called Vertigo if that’s your thing. If you prefer something a little more cosy or quiet, there’s a Tivoli Christmas light show, which is on the lake every hour for a couple of hours in the evening. I took a video of the whole thing which you can see below…

It’s a cool thing to see in person, if you’re ever in Copenhagen you have to check it out.

Too Late For Another Summer Trip? Where Could I Go?

europe-map-2016-0

As you know, at the start of June I went to Madrid and it was brilliant. My plan was to go to a couple of places this Summer, but as usual, I leave things until the last minute and before you know it, it’s already August! ๐Ÿ˜€

There’s only a few weeks left, so if I go anywhere I will have to hurry the hell up, but where do I go? Where is good to go for a couple of days? Ideally I’d like to fly from Newcastle, so there’s limited options, but there are some.

Dear Hotel Madrid Review

dear-hotel-madrid-panoramic-views

As you know, I recently visited Madrid, and stayed in the brilliant Dear Hotel. If you’ve read my other reviews, including The Square in Copenhagen, you’ll know that I really like modern hotels, and ones with a boutique feel. I had a look at the Dear Hotel and it looked like it would fit the bill, so I chose it for my stay in Madrid.
