Running the Paris Marathon

Forget hop-on-hop-off bus tours. What’s the best way to see a city? To run it, of course!

After a year of planning and months of training, I ran my first marathon in Paris on April 8th 2018. It was an exhilarating adventure, culminating in the best race I could have ever have wished for.

Here is my race recap of the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris; something I wanted to do to ‘tick off the bucket list’, but has in fact ignited a passion for endurance running.

Top 5 Things to Do in Hamburg

Top 5 things to do on a short weekend trip to Hamburg, Germany as a couple.

Hamburg is ideal for a city weekend break from the UK, with the flight from London Stansted taking around an hour and a quick hop on the train from the airport to the city centre Hauptbahnhof taking around half an hour and costing 3€.
