Day trip to the pebble beaches of Brighton

Day trip to the pebble beaches of Brighton

For only £10 return, Tiantian and I bought advance tickets to the seaside town of Brighton, located just 1 hour south of London! To be honest, there isn’t much to do visit and explore here – the best thing to do is to simply relax on the pebble beach and watch the sunset. Along the beach also lies the Brighton Pier, an old-school theme park which is free to enter….

Museums in Vienna – Kunsthistorisches Museum and Sisi Museum

The tourist crowds visiting the Neuschwanstein castle remained as huge, but I must say the weather is much more pleasant during spring. Visiting the Neuschwanstein castle is only a 5 minute bus ride away from…

Museums in Munich

Museum-hopping is like a standard ritual when visiting many of the established European cities, and in Munich itself, there are plenty of museums for you to choose from. Yet, it is not just the artsy museums that Munich has, there are also science and technology related museums owing to Munich’s global presence in research and engineering. Honestly, we have only touched the tip of the iceberg here in Munich, but…

Train travel on Pingxi Branch Rail Line

Train travel on Pingxi Branch Rail Line

If all you ever wanted is to board an old school train and trip along several small towns, Pingxi Branch Rail Line 平溪支线 might just be the thing for you. This day trip off Taipei is our absolute favourite – a scenic ride through beautiful, unspoilt nature and towns that are remains of what was once a thriving coal industry. Pingxi Line is one of the remaining three branch lines that…
