Crooked Forest/Krzywy Las, near Gryfino, Poland

I’m Sian, a college lecturer in my 30s, from the Midlands of the UK, who loves to travel whenever I can.

It’s not always easy fitting travel around a busy work and home life, so I usually find myself on weekend trips in Europe. If, like me, you’re often travelling solo, on a budget, and with an itinerary designed for limited time, I hope you can relate to and find inspiration from my travel tales.
