Prague – not quite a city of love, not quite the hub of drugs and rock’n’roll, but it does belong somewhere in between. Prague has a whole lot to offer, but here are ten things you definitely need to see when visiting Prague.
1. The Old Town Square
This square is the hub of Prague. The Old Town Hall is located here, along with the Astronomical Clock. If you like street artists, the town square will definitely be your favourite place. No matter what time of day you come here, the restaurants will always be buzzing, but there are always the hundreds of little alleyways to seek shelter in. 2. Charles Bridge
The Charles Bridge is Prague’s most famous bridge, and probably even amongst the best known bridges in Europe. Charles Bridge crosses over the river Moldau, and connects two beautiful parts of Prague. On the bridge itself you can always…

While staying in Munich, Germany for a few days on our amazing, cram-as-many-cities-in-as-you-can Europe trip, we decided to take a day trip to southwest Bavaria to see Neuschwanstein Castle.
Our train ride wasn’t too long, maybe around two or three hours, but the view was breathtaking and made every moment worth the trip! When you arrive at the train station, you’ll see that you’re kiiiinda in the middle of nowhere. BUT, you’ll hop straight on a bus that will take you to the main area/street that all the lovely castles are on.
Everyone mainly focuses on Neuschwanstein (understandably), but there is actually another castle called Hohenschwangau that you can tour on the same day. Sadly we didn’t get to tour this one, but if you’re on the fence, I definitely think it would be worth a visit!
Although the website is a little confusing, I would recommend buying your tickets…

We have now arrived in Osaka after travelling through many interesting and wonderful towns. Japan is an exquisite country, with friendly gracious folks and fabulous food. The cities are large and modern and the regional areas are picturesque and so very serene.

After a beautiful walk over the surrounding bridges, we arrived at the Notre Dame. An incredibly stunning cathedral with intricate detailing showing off the french gothic architecture. Additionally, at a cost, you can go up the Notre Dame and look at the view from a balcony at the top. I recommend taking a minute to glaze your eyes carefully over the cathedral to really take in all its carvings and designs. Around the Notre Dame there are plenty of restaurants and cafes to park yourself in if you plan on spending the day around the Notre Dame.
Situated overlooking the Champs-Elysees, the Arc De Triomphe is at the centre of 12 avenues. Walking up the Champs-Elysees, a recommended route toward the Arc, you will get the best and most incredible view up the road. With a height of over 50m, from the top you’ll have a stunning view of Paris and the Eiffel Tower. Whilst the queues may be long the view are most definitely worth it. Though don’t spend all your time at the top as some of the best architectural detailing is underneath the arc and around the edges.
