The UV index will be low at this time of year, so not something to worry about. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's always a good idea to apply a small amount of sunscreen to exposed skin.

Bologna to San Marino: A San Marino day trip

During my most recent trip to Italy in November of 2019, I had planned on spending a few days in Venice. Unfortunately, that was also when Venice suffered from the horrific flooding so those plans were quickly cut. However, I still had a flight to Italy and needed to spend a few days in the country before moving onto France for the Strasbourg Christmas Markets. So, I decided I’d spend a few days in Bologna. I’ll admit, as excited as I was to eat my way through Bologna, a big part of why I...

Best places to travel solo: Venice

Think Venice is only for couples on romantic vacations? I dare you to think again. Venice seems to be a hit or a miss with most people. A lot of visitors downplay this infamous city, claiming it’s too touristic, too expensive, or even too fake. I disagree. In fact,Venice is one of my favourite cities. I immediately fell in love with the city of canals during my first visit in 2013. I loved everything about it, I was never bored, and I was totally comfortable being there solo. Because of this,...

Orlando Bloom and the Venice chocolate shop incident

Have you guys ever met your celebrity crush or idol? Nothing will ever prepare you for that moment as it’s a moment you KNOW will probably never happen. This is the real world, and we don’t just wander around bumping into Ryan Gosling in Starbucks or Zac Efron at Tesco. At least not if you come from rural Ireland where the most famous celebrity is, in fact, a dolphin.  When I was 16 years old, my friends and I met one weekend in a coffee shop in Cork discussing our celebrity crushes....
