I’ve worked for Osprey for over 6 years, but my background is in Fine Art, so I am particularly interested in the world class galleries and museums that are found in Europe’s major cities. I love the Fundacio Joan Miró in Barcelona for both the artwork and the setting. Barcelona is my favourite European city - the architecture (especially Antoni Gaudí’s buildings and Park Guell), nightlife, weather and beach make it a great destination for a summer city break. My other top cities are Rome, Krakow and Prague.
After leaving school I spent a month travelling round Europe, visiting Paris, Barcelona, Nice, Rome, Florence, Munich and Prague. In the years since I have revisited Barcelona as well as spending time in Amsterdam, Bruges, Berlin, Krakow and Dublin.
My ideal itinerary:
To visit Reykjavik, staying at the Hotel Borg, doing all the amazing tours they have on offer – snowmobiling, helicopter ride over the glaciers, Blue Lagoon, Northern Lights – and sampling its legendary restaurants and bars in the evenings.
