My Five Favourite – Photos

A quick, short and simple blog post as Me and Nick are currently busy with life in general.

I had seen a few blog posts recently on other travel blogs of their favourite photos from their trips. We may not have been on as many as them but I though… can I sum up our trips into only 5 pictures? Probably not, but I can try!

As I scoured through my pictures and picked my favourite photos I realised a slight theme, I may be a little impartial to nighttime photos and pretty colourful lights. Oh well, it’s whatever floats your boat as they say. To me, they can take me right back to that place and remember everything we did.

So let’s get started…

Year in review Pt 2 – 2016

With 5 holidays to fit in here is Pt 2 of our ‘2016 Year in Review’. Read Pt 1 here. Plus if you enjoy this post you can read our 2015 travels here.

Festival of Lights

Despite just missing Oktoberfest, I am so glad we were there to experience the Festival of Lights. All around Berlin landmarks are cleverly transformed using light projections straight onto the building themselves.

Every night we were there we would just walk around for hours trying to find all the sights with light shows. Our favourite was the Brandenburg gate which we would make a special journey nearly every night before bed just to see the lights, as the moving projection fitted perfectly with the pillars and was so colourful. Some buildings even had music accompanying the light projection which just added to the overall atmosphere.

96 hours in… Berlin, Germany Pt 1

Wow, just where to begin? Berlin still has to be one of my favourite places we have visited (which I know I say often but its true). Just the sheer scale means that you could never do or see everything in one go.

We were there last October for our standard four day holiday and I feel there was still so much we didn’t see, although we made a good go of it. While we just missed Oktoberfest we did manage to time it very well for the light festival. When I started writing this blog I knew it would be a long one, so much so it now has two parts and one all about the festival of lights as it deserves its own special mention.
