Japan Dream Itinerary - How to spend 3 weeks in Japan

Japan Dream Itinerary - How to spend 3 weeks in Japan

Japan has to be a top bucket list or dream destination right?

For most of us it’s a long flight away, on the pricey side, needing 3 weeks of your attention - it’s a lot to commit too. Hence why is remains a dream I guess.

Heading to Japan has been 25 years in the making for me, yet I have still never been. I thought how can I make this a reality - write out a 3 week itinerary to Japan of course! Spending hours researching, finding tour operators and incredible hotels and experiences has made me more committed to going. I thought as I only share where I’ve been, every adventure starts with research so why not share what I have found so far? In case, this is your dream location to, you will have an itinerary that hits all the sweet spots.

3 days in Porto Itinerary

3 days in Porto Itinerary

If you want a city break that’s sole focus is it’s delicious food and wine, colourful and bright architecture, warm sunny days and makes you feel happy and relaxed; Porto is for you.

For some reason everyone tends to favour a trip to Lisbon over Porto, which is crazy as I definitely feel that Porto has the upper hand. Any place that’s named after the wine it produces is surely a winning destination! Am I right?

I visited Porto for 3 days in May with my besties and had one hell of an epic trip. May have put on a few pounds and my liver was furious but trust me it’s all worth it.

Read on for a detailed 3 day itinerary to Porto, with a few nuggets of information on where to stay and essentials for your own epic Porto visit.

Three days in Rome | Your Must-See Guide

Three days in Rome | Your Must-See Guide

I have a degree in History and Ancient History so clearly I tend to gravitate toward historical Sites. Rome is literally the Holy Grail for History Lovers but there is way too much to fit in. Crazy, I know.

I have created a three day Itinerary which I have personally tried and tested twice before with two different groups of people and we managed to do all of the following sites/areas with time to spare. Warning: if you have what I like to call a Moody Michael who hates walking...prepare for them to be very moody indeed. There's a lot of walking required but it is worth it.

Review | Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam Hotel

Review | Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam Hotel

The Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam is a 5 star, ideally located, force to be reckoned with US Boutique hotel in Central Amsterdam. With 274 deluxe rooms as well as 15 rooms in original 17th Century Townhouses the Kimpton really does have tons of character and charm.

I've had my eye on the Kimpton De Witt since last year as I loved the modern and botanical style plus the location looked ideal for a first visit, so naturally it was my first choice. As I live for affordable luxury, I took one look at the pictures and knew I didn't care about the price as I wanted to experience this gorgeous boutique hotel for you, the readers (not for myself of course).

Copenhagen | Must See Travel Guide

Copenhagen | Must See Travel Guide

Hygge, Scandi and Style, three words I associate with the Danish Capital. Copenhagen oozes coolness and beats to its own drum. A Copenhagen city break is quite possibly the most relaxing weekend away in Europe. 

There aren't as many Things to do in the way of Attractions compared to other European cities, which means you can spend a lot of time wandering the streets, chilling in a cafe and stumbling upon hidden gems. 

I have compiled a thorough Copenhagen Travel Guide with a 3 day downloadable Itinerary to take with you, so you don't have to lift a finger. Handy! Let's dive into my Must - See guide to Copenhagen.
