Up to no good in the Dam

The last time I went to Amsterdam was over three years ago as part of a bit of a Euro Tour, this weekend’s getaway was a perfect opportunity for me to drink in a little bit more of Amsterdam.

My friend Juls and I packed our bags and set off for a fun, interesting and different experience that is Amsterdam.

We stayed at a little Hotel called ‘Hotel Residence le Coin’ which was only about a ten minute walk from the famous Red Light District and had a good few coffee shops dotted around it and thus perfect for tourists.

how your casio calculator and shabba ranks could ruin your holiday

Nothing quite compares to the feeling an escape from your 9-5 via a holiday somewhere fun gives you. You don’t have to worry about London commuters shouting abuse at you whilst you wonder if that object poking your behind is an umbrella or something more sinister.

It’s safe to say a good bulk of my most treasured memories have been made on holiday with my closest friends. From ‘hot venom’ shots in Gambia to twerking on yachts in Dubai, these memories could have been pretty shit if I didn’t have the right travel buddies. I know many people who spend their hard earned cash to pay for holidays and end up having a nightmare of a trip because they went with the wrong travel buddy.

Travel Diaries: Prague

Prague is the capital and the largest city of the Czech Republic. I wouldn’t quite call it one of the top ten tourist destinations however the city is indeed beautiful. From beautiful scenery to a very active clubs, Prague does not have to be top of your list but makes for a very fun getaway. I went with my two best friends and we did a lot of walking, sight seeing and the like. The night clubs were buzzing with tourists like ourselves and for the most part we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

One thing i did note however was that the not so warm reception is some restaurants and hotels but if you’re not one for molly coddling you should be just fine. I would recommend taking a tour with one of the old vintage classic car tour companies, going to the beer museum and a segway tour through the city.

7 THINGS TO DO IN DUBAI

Dubai is located in the Middle East on the lovely Arabian Gulf and is the most populated metropolis of the Emirates (UAE), but that’s not why you’re here now is it? You want all the goss and hot spots so here it is! Top 7 things to check out if you’re planning a trip to Dubai.

Visit the Burj Khalifa

The Burj Khalifa is a super tall skyscraper and is currently the tallest building in the world. Boasting a total of 163 floors in total, the views from the top are simply amazing. I’ll admit if I wasn’t keen on taking some lovely pictures of the view I might have found the excursion a tad boring. The highlight I thought would be going up the elevator but that didn’t quite hit the spot. All in all, I would recommend seeing the Burj so that you can tick it off your list!
