Dolmabahce Palace main entrance

Welcome to CheckinAway!

We are Paul & Hristina, husband and wife. We live in London, UK and enjoy budget friendly luxury travel and sampling local cuisines.

We have been travelling together since 2010 and would like to share our experiences and travel tips with you.

We are 4 seasons active and enjoy long beach holidays, winter and skiing trips, weekend breaks in Europe and biking in the UK.

We chose this website name in a world of ever increasing globalisation and international air travel to suggest one’s desire to “check in” a destination away (far from home).

We hope you continue enjoying our articles past and future and we look forward to seeing you on our next adventure!
