GPS myCity giveaway!

When it comes to travelling, I am a total city lover. I love to see the sights of a city and walking around is one of my favourite ways to do so.
I think it’s my Dads influence.. but staring at maps on my iPhone (when I have wifi) for ages and getting my bearings is so interesting for me. GPSmyCity provide self-guided city walks for 750+ cities worldwide, where you can download an offline map to use as a city guide. Great right? No more trying to find wifi or using data abroad! You can just download the tour you’d like to do then.. you’re away!
I have teamed up with GPSmyCity to giveaway 20 promo codes for the city of your choice! Check them all out here.(List of Android destinations)

Also you can gain lifetime access to ALL of their guides (750+ cities) for just $60 (1% of the total original price). More details here!

All you have to do is be a fan of my Facebook page and comment below on which city you’d like to visit! Easy!

Winners will be announced on my blog on Tuesday the 24th January at 8pm GMT.

Happy travelling!

PARIS {part trois}

The last set of photographs from my wonderful trip to Paris!
Île Saint-Louis is by Notre Dame. It has some beautiful traditional French streets, really love to walk around here. Vin + Fromage – perfect!
It was my first trip to Montmartre (how? I don’t know).. I absolutely adored the artists painting in the square. If there was ever a time I packed up and left, I think you’d find me here painting under an umbrella.
Le Consulat and Le bonne Franquette were where famous artists like Monet and Vincent Van Gogh ‘hung out’. Ah so cool! Le Consulat does a really nice spag bol too – All the important things!

See you soon Paris!

PARIS {part deux}

I spent my 30th Birthday wandering the streets of Paris and stopping off at the Café de Flore for an eclair – what better way to spend it! Truly the best eclair I have ever eaten.. and I’ve eaten a few! I would love to spend a few months in Paris, learning the language.. however, I’m not sure I could resist a sweet treat every day!

PARIS {part une}

paris-blogger

Last week I celebrated turning 30 in none other than my favourite city – Paris! I have such a love for French culture. The way of life, food, fashion, museums.. I could go on, I just adore it! On this trip I travelled on the Eurostar. I am not a huge fan of flying so thought I’d give the Eurostar a try. It is ace! Much better than flying!
I stayed in the Saint Germain area which I really liked, it was fairly close to everything. The thing I love most is just walking around the city, that’s where you stumble upon cute little places. Obviously, there were some planned walks, like the Jardin du Luxembourg. These gardens are so beautiful to wander around, I would love to visit in Spring time!
I thought I would do a few blogs with photographs from my trip.. so that it wasn’t just a huge list of photographs. I hope you enjoy them!

Brighton

Took a little trip to Brighton last week! I’d never been before, but it always looked like a place I would like. Full of arty things and pretty little streets, it lived up to my expectations! We stayed at Fab Guest which was really close to the pier and the Lanes. It was a lovely short break in the UK – However, it didn’t include any fish and chips for me… (Not such a British holiday).

My trip wish list // GPS my city

gps_competition_coventry_ I love to travel to new places. Flying is not my favourite thing to do, but I do it because I like the outcome. When I go on holiday I love to explore. I don’t mind the odd afternoon sat in the sun, but beach/chilled holidays are not for me.. I want to go see and do.

I have a few places on my wish list and I am hoping to cross a few off this year!

Reykjavik, Iceland.

I have always wanted to go to Iceland to see the Northern Lights. Iceland in general looks stunning and full of photo opportunities. I also wanted go to Sólheimasandur beach to see the wreckage of the DC-3 plane (no one died in the crash by the way!).

Nice + St Tropez + Monaco + Cannes, France.

I grouped these because they can all be visited on one trip. I love France and all 4 of these places appeal to me for different reasons. Food, shops, culture, luxury.. the list goes on. I love the South of France.

Lake Garda or Como, Italy.

Again, for the photo opportunities. They both look absolutely stunning so I’ll take a trip to either.

Paris, France.

My aim is to visit yearly. Don’t ask me why, I just love this place so very much.

Geneva, Switzerland.

No real reason, have just always fancied going!


I have been given 20 promo codes for GPS my City‘s full city walks to giveaway! Head over to my Facebook page on how to enter!

GPS my City provide over 5,000 walks in 470+ cities around the world. Personally I LOVE to walk around cities as opposed to anything else, because you see so much! With this app, you download maps and walks so you don’t miss any of the good stuff – amazing right! Plus, they’re all downloadable so you don’t have to use wifi or 3G/4G.

This competition is open to anyone from any country, I will announce the winners on the 29th February and you can pick which ever city you wish from this list (If you pick Paris, you have to take me… kidding!).

Good luck!
