Crete - Top 7 Excursions

Crete - Top 7 Excursions

Being the largest of the Greek Islands means that it is packed full of things to do. Especially if, like me, you visit for a week.

I took a trip here in July with my mumma as we both fancied sun, good food and activities to keep us entertained. I’m not the biggest fan of chilling by a pool for hours on end, if you can’t tell already, I need to be on the move exploring.

Naturally, there is a great deal of exploring to be done in Crete. Rugged landscapes, isolated islands, ancient myths and the prettiest marinas. You’d need a lot more than a week to truly explore Crete but the following suggestions will help you on your way.

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).
