The Second Day | New York, New York


Kathventures

After a busy and brilliant first day, our second day wasn’t looking any quieter. But who really goes to New York City to relax?! I was particularly excited for day two- the day of Central Park and the Empire State. And I assure you, it didn’t disappoint. The day went from a quiet park walk […]

The First Day | New York, New York


Kathventures

Last week I hopped on a plane with my best friend Tarryn to take on the Big Apple. The city of big lights, big skylines and big names. After Tarryn insisted we go to New York to see her favourite band, Tegan and Sara, we only had a few months to save up and plan […]

A Writer Abroad: The Travel Journal


Kathventures

Since holidaying in Malta last year, I’ve tried to keep a travel journal from the moment I pop on a plane until the moment I leave my new favourite place. Although I haven’t always been successful in completing a trip’s worth of stories and they aren’t always substantial entries, I am a big advocate of […]

Villa Borghese | When in Rome


Kathventures

Villa Borghese is a public park that is charming for all of the right reasons; and some of the wrong reasons. Probably season-dependent, but the grass was tired and unkept. This only increased its attractiveness, and complimented its brilliant fountains, glorious reflections and quiet park benches. All the while, its views, museums, bicycles and lively […]

Rome from my Favourite Points of View


Kathventures

A bumpy and brilliant skyline against easy blue sky and fluffy white clouds. Picture perfect green dots that protect the river elegantly flowing through the city. The silhouette of concrete magnificence that teases an even better view when you see it up close. Rome’s beauty is just like the books say and it is from […]

Day Two: 40,000 Steps | When in Rome


Kathventures

Saturday opened its eyes without a struggle. A heavy and well-deserved sleep ensured this. Fuelled by our busy itinerary, my brother and I got ready and headed to a local cafe for the hotel’s complimentary breakfast. After an awesome day one in Rome, we were eager to get our feet back on the dusty pavement. […]

Day One: Rome-ing Around | When in Rome


Kathventures

While London rested for a few more hours until the final day of work for a week was complete, my brother and I awoke and beat the newspapers to the racks outside of the shops. Friday 16th: 4am wake up. Time for Rome. I travelled to London the previous evening, silver rucksack packed; purple suitcase […]

How to Plan a City Break


Kathventures

In just over a month I’ll be hopping on a plane with my brother and heading over to somewhere I have ALWAYS wanted to explore: Rome. I’ve been lucky enough to go on two city breaks in the last year- Dublin and Paris. From planning and then going on these trips I’ve learnt a lot […]

Paris From my Favourite Points of view | Dear Paris


Kathventures

The whole of Paris makes for a sensational view- predictable but true. Whether my view was the dreamy Disney castle or the incredible point where we could see so much of our new favourite place (I had to sneak these views in as they should have made the cut), Paris provided a lot of Instagram […]

Get Lost in Paris | Dear Paris


Kathventures

Brooke from The Student Traveler recommended I just get lost in Paris (politely so!), and this thought was constantly on my mind when Aaron and I went to Paris last week. At any opportunity we could, we would lose our bearings and just keep walking. No map and no idea. This sometimes meant we would […]
