Phantasialand Review: The (Unknown) Cologne Theme Park You Need to Visit ASAP!

Tucked away just outside of Cologne, you’ll find Phantasialand, a firm favourite amongst Germans but a relatively unknown theme park to the rest of the world. During a flying visit to the region, we couldn’t help but make the trip out to the park and see for ourselves what was on offer.  The following is our […]

Disneyland Paris & Walt Disney Studios Park – A Must See in France?

The one brand in the world that really needs no introduction. Disney. The happiest place on earth.  Where dreams come true.  Where fantasies come to life and where big kids become small again. As a child it was always a family dream to one day visit Disneyland and when it did eventually happen, I remember […]

Thorpe Park Review – One for the Adrenaline Junkies!

We woke yesterday morning to pouring rain in London City – though we were led to believe summer had started, it seems someone missed the memo.  Regardless, we donned our gear and set off for Thorpe Park on the outskirts of London; no amount of rain was going to stop us from checking out their coasters!

Ferrari World Review – Abu Dhabi, UAE

How lucky are we? … but now we’re […]

With a weekend to spare, Nathan and I decided to hop over to Doha, Qatar.  Though I work with a number of teachers that have lived in Doha in the past, I’d heard mixed things about just how worthwhile the city was. Is it work a stopover if you’re flying through?  Should you book a flight […]

IMG Worlds of Adventure Review – Is it Worth the Trip?

IMG Worlds of Adventure review dubai

Anyone that’s spent a fair amount of time in the UAE will testify just how rapidly things change over here – from year to year massive building projects rise from the sand, changing the skyline for the umpteenth time. There’s one type of project that gets us really excited though and that’s the creation of […]

Where has the time gone? Another ‘Monthly’ Round-Up

How on earth is it June already?! The plan was to jot down what we’ve been up to over here each month but considering my last ‘monthly round-up’ was posted at the beginning of March, I think it’s fair to say I’ve been pretty unsuccessful in doing so! The past three months have been a […]
