“I have recently arrived home from my trip to Krakow, Poland. It was such a last minute, spontaneous city break that I booked with my best friend. We booked the trip because the airline had a sale and the trip was too tempting to miss. We didn’t know what to expect, we did little research and even got the wrong currency at the airport, that’s how unprepared we were. The city was better than I ever imagined and it now makes it in to my top 10 cities to visit. The food is incredible, the city is so colourful, green and picturesque and there is so much history and things to do.”

My Top Tips For City Breaks

1. “Download a currency APP on your phone. It’s always hard working out how much things are so having a handy APP to rely on makes life a lot easier.”

2. “Pack light. I make sure I take hand luggage to avoid waiting at the conveyor belt. Buy miniature toiletries, roll your clothes so you fit more in the case and plan outfits so you aren’t taking unnecessary items.”

3. “Look for recommendations, make it known on social media you have arrived and ask your followers for tips. I also make sure I look on websites like trip advisor and timeout. Also don’t forget to pack comfortable shoes for exploring.”

4) “Immerse yourself; us Brits can sometimes be creatures of habit. We travel thousands of miles to another country and eat fish and chips. When travelling I try to embrace the culture where I am. Try the local food, travel on public transport and getting chatting to the local people. You get more out of your trip if you do it this way, it becomes more memorable.”

5. "Take a souvenir home so you never forget. I collect magnets wherever I go in the world. I obviously take lots of pictures as well, but having something visible everyday in your home is a great way to keep the memory of a trip alive.”
