Our Guide to escaping the City - Crete

Porto in Portugal

The town that brought us port wine! That should already be giving you good signs! Porto is one of my personal favourite destinations to visit during the summer for the views, the sun and also, for me one of the most important things, the fresh seafood!

Having the luxury to walk anywhere you want and still feeling the sun on your back and being able to smell the fresh sea air is an experience that I highly recommend for all.

The food is beyond spectacular with how fresh it is and the views of the ocean are just immensely immersive so that you could just sit on the beach and stare at it all day.

Heraklion - Crete

Crete is the Largest Island In Greece. It is also one of the most beautiful islands I have ever visited! Everything that you could want is in Crete! They have loads of beaches, Loads of markets, Local people that are genuinely happy and friendly and also lots of mythological sites and history for all you history buffs out there and this site is only just over a 4-hour flight from London.

One of the best experiences that I have had in my life was snorkeling in Crete and also swimming along side a fully grown turtle which was one of the main memories that will always mean I have a special place in my heart for Crete

Night Markets and Live Music

The Endless Night market on the Tiber is one of the most dazzling sites to see. The market never ends and is constantly selling everything that you could possibly want ranging from jewelry, clothing and even bb guns converted from real guns! There is live music played constantly and there is always a fun and happy atmosphere about the place.
