My original plan was to travel to Turkey with Topdeck in August, but due to terrorist attacks in early July, all trips through Istanbul and Ankara were cancelled. I can't lie, I was really upset, as I was looking forward to this trip so much. Topdeck were kind enough to offer us a few other … Continue reading Exploring the Balkans

London was probably my favourite place, because there's so much to see and do. I loved seeing Big Ben, The London Eye and Oxford Street. It's definitely a place where … Continue reading My Top 5 Moments
