City Guides by Bren

Travelling soon? Let me help you!

Below are my guides to various cities around the world. These are all cities I have visited on my travels and are all compiled by me personally (sometimes with the input of locals or city experts). 

The guides focus largely on the different areas of each city, as I've found where you stay always has a heavy influence on the type of experience you have. Other things covered are getting around town, offbeat things to do and advice on smaller things like sim cards and safety.

Like I said, these are all cities I've visited personally, so if you have questions just shoot! I can be reached on Insta, Twitter and FB at the handle @brenontheroad.
