Kew Gardens opens at 10 AM and I would advise arriving around this time to beat the queues that will no doubt be there a little later in the day.
From Clapham Junction we went to station number 5 and got on the train to Kew Bridge. Once at Kew Bridge, cross the road and then the bridge and then turn right walking alongside the cricket pitch which will lead you to the entrance of Kew Gardens.
This is hands-down one of the prettiest London day hikes I’ve organised. Quaint Tudor villages, historic churches, forests and castles combine with a gentle ambling pace that offers a slice of quintessential English countryside.
Direct trains from London Victoria will take you to the village of Chilham. Exit the station and head east, following signs for Chilham Castle.
Little has changed over the past few centuries in Chilham (minus the fancy SUVs), and it is easy to feel as if you have stepped back in time when wandering around its narrow lanes and wonky rows of Tudor buildings.
The Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world and somewhere I just had to visit especially considering before visiting the Grand Canyon I had only been to Victoria Falls!! So it's now two down and five to go!
I arrived at the Grand Canyon on day 4 of my most recent American road trip after a doing a big night in Las Vegas and a 2 day hike across Havasu Falls so needless to say my energy levels were not at their highest by the time I reached the park. That being said its the Grand Canyon and the excitement levels were sky high!
Here is my experience of my day viewing the Grand Canyon
My last Vlog/Blog was about hiking into Havasu Falls and the beauty that awaits when you get there.
Well guess what? It gets even better!!! Beaver Falls, Mooney Falls & Havasu Creek take you away from earth as you know it and take you to a place of beauty you can only dream of..
Now Unfortunately when booking my camping in Havasupai I only booked one night and by the time I realised my mistake the following night had sold out! This meant I had to try and do all my exploring in one day which by all means was very tough but was so worth it as the sights that great you between Havasu Falls and Beaver Falls are truly out of this world!
In March 2018 I was one of the lucky 150 people that get to experience Havasu Falls.
The Hike is challenging, the cost of camping is high but the reward is something special that will live with me for the rest of my life! Check out the Vlog & my top tips for hiking one of the most unique locations in the world, Havasu Falls.
The 8 Minute Video Log below (VLOG) will hopefully give you some inspiration to venture outside of Prague and explore the beautiful Czech countryside
Karlstejn Castle to Bubovice
So when people say they are travelling to Prague do they even know what country they are going to? I would hope the answer is yes however with its big pull of stag and hens going for the cheap beer sometimes I would guess this is not the answer. I would also second guess that the majority of tourists to the country do not leave the capital.
The Czech Republic is an absolutely stunning country and don't get me wrong Prague with its medievil buildings and stunning architecture is well worth a visit but on my recent weekend to the Czech Republic I wanted to see a little more than a city so I stumbled little a little hiking route from Karlstejn Castle to a little village called Bubovice which is around 30 minutes drive south of Prague.
