Walking tour of Berlin - with google maps

Berlin, a city of epic history and ultra trendy watering holes! Being the last stop on our mini Euro-Rail trip and running low on spending money I opted to create a cool wee walking tour that took in some of the city most famous sights with a finishing point in a bar where each table has its own beer tap!

If your heading to Berlin why not download my Google Map way points and you too can check out these awesome sights, or if you're feeling brave try the Epic Tour which really takes in pretty much ever sight Berlin has to offer. Remember you can download Google maps for offline use so you can avoid this rip off data charges!

Cheap business class flights - Europe to Shanghai £880 rtn

Qatar Airways are quite partial to a super cheap business class flight and without disappointing they are at it again! Check out this awesome fare which is not only cheap but a great Avios (Air-Mile) earner.

Prague to Shanghai via Doha £880 rtn  

You will need a cheap flight to Prague but just make this part of the holiday, arrive the night before or a couple of days before your Qatar flight and enjoy some time in this Awesome city.

Check out my guides for Prague of what to do there 

The Flights 

Ok so you wont be flying on Qatar Airways newest Q-Suites or the A380 with bar (unless your super luck) but both routes are served by an incredible business class cabin and you can expect the same high quality service throughout both.

Better still if you quote your British Airways Executive number when checking in or booking you can credit the flight to your BA Account. This means you will earn 20,000 Avios and 540 tier points which is almost enough to reach BA silver status (just make 2 short haul BA flights and reach the 600TP threshold).

So even if Shanghai isn't in your next travel list it may be worth considering and with availability all the way through to April 2018 there is plenty of options available. Click premium only when searching, min 7 nights stay and look for fares less than 14,000CZK.

Best way to get an upgrade and pick the best seats when flying

When it comes to booking your seat on a flight it's key to remember that not all are born the same! By that I mean each seat may look the similar on your airlines choice map but in reality, some have extra leg room or even restricted leg room. So how do you avoid those crap seats on your next flight and bag yourself some extra comfort in the tin can?

Best campsites in Scotland - Perfect for camping beginners

As you can probably guess I love a holiday, but all that travel can sometimes leave your bank balance feeling pretty empty. So, after having far too many trips away in the first half of the year I thought I best find some budget friendly travelling adventures a little closer to home.
