Is it possible for home to be in two different places at the same time? I think if you ask most people who moved from one country to another, the answer would be 'yes'.

Prague is a beautiful city and a top choice for many visitors as it offers a variety of sites and attractions at relatively reasonable prices. Unfortunately, if you're visiting in high season you have to face the jostling crowds.

Budapest swept me off my feet with its charm and character. Autumn trees, stunning architecture, sunsets, food and city lights: this colourful city was so spectacular, the experience felt slightly surreal.
I love walking. Not only is walking good exercise, but it’s also the perfect time to let your thoughts drift. I’ve had my best ideas while walking! I’ve wandered many roads here in Donegal, and even though I enjoy these random adventures, I have a favourite route that I always take when I want to clear my mind.
