Bella Marbella

Bella Marbella

We visted Marbella over Easter long weekend…I’ll be honest, for the most part we were those ‘Brits on tour’ down at the port side. However for one beautiful day we checked out the old town of Marbella and, well, you can see where it got it’s name! I can highly recommend Bar Altamirano for amazing seafood … Continue reading

February funshine: Winter in Gran Canaria

February funshine: Winter in Gran Canaria

Well this year I hit fabulous 30. Not deterred by the milestone, I sought to make it the sunniest birthday month possible in the midst of a European winter…hence why I headed to (pretty much!) Africa. No longer content to just go for a nice birthday meal, in recent years my friends have embarked on … Continue reading

Cairns-mas! Festive in FNQ

Cairns-mas! Festive in FNQ

My first Christmas in Cairns in five years! My first Australian summer in almost as long. It’s safe to say I was unpleasantly hot, sweaty and swollen but equally as excited, relaxed and melancholic to spend a week of holidays in my old hometown. I went through a range of feelings while in Cairns; nostalgia, confusion, … Continue reading

Danish Christmas at the Tivoli

Danish Christmas at the Tivoli

Also known as the weekend I put on approximately 5kg in one evening. My blogging hiatus is over and this post is a throwback to my first experience of Scandinavian Christmas dinner. I’m still unsure if our dinner at the Relsteds’ was representative of all Danes’ Christmas traditions or just those of my friend’s family but let me … Continue reading

Hiking in Santorini

Hiking in Santorini

I admit that Summer 2016 was quite the holiday hiatus for me; evidenced by the major gap in blog posts. With a trip to Australia on the cards for Christmas I decided to make the most of an English Summer…and it didn’t disappoint! But by the time our September girls’ weekend to Paris came around, I … Continue reading

Quatre filles à Paris!

Quatre filles à Paris!

Soit it was the weather (glorious), soit it was the company (unbeatable) but this trip was my BEST EVER to Paris. During my travels I’ve visited Paris quite frequently. I know, lucky me! In the freezing winter with family, in the summer for work, with friends, for New Year’s Eve and in transit. This trip with three of … Continue reading

Day trips in the Bay Area

Day trips in the Bay Area

I very rarely feel homesick when I travel because I get so caught up in the exploring and photographing and eating, I tend to live in the moment. Driving down the California coast was an exception to the norm; I could’ve been driving the stretch between Brisbane and Cairns in Australia. The beautiful beaches and sunshine reminded … Continue reading

San Francisco Cityscapes

San Francisco Cityscapes

We spent three glorious days in San Francisco while I was staying in the Bay Area with Sarah. We hit all the touristy spots and enjoyed them with the confident stride of locals.  We wandered from the vibrant Castro to Chinatown (much much bigger than I imagined it to be); from Haight and all its smells … Continue reading
