Weekender in the real capital

Weekender in the real capital

Can you believe I’ve lived in the UK for 3.5 years and I had never visited Winchester? The old capital of England? The home of kings, of artists, of politics for hundreds of years? I know, it’s shocking. I recently atoned by going on a fantastic weekend girls’ trip resplendent with chilly blue skies and costume silliness. … Continue reading

2017: bringing in the brunch

2017: bringing in the brunch

So I headed from Cairns to Melbourne, on what is usually 3.5 hour flight. It was a beautiful clear day and I spent most of the flight glued to the window staring out at alternating views of unending coastline, brown land, farmland and ocean. You really begin to understand the term ‘The Never Never’ when … 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

Cloudy with a chance of meatballs

Cloudy with a chance of meatballs

Earlier this month, we girls decided to take a bank holiday trip to Gothenburg in southern Sweden; aka the Little London of Europe. I was sceptical, after all I live in the Big London of Europe (!) but the flights were cheap, the meatballs were calling and…why not go for a girls’ weekend to a new country? … Continue reading

Following the sun (and the Son) for Easter

Following the sun (and the Son) for Easter

Ah sun, glorious sun. It only took about five minutes before I could feel my sad, dry, pale, quasi-British skin crisping up in the boiling 19 degree heat of Palma de Mallorca and let me tell you, it hurt so good. We had a lovely, long girls’ weekend in this beautiful capital of the Spanish Balearic … Continue reading

A holiday at home…in Denmark

A holiday at home…in Denmark

Everyone knows that London life is a hive of activity: fast, expensive and dizzyingly busy. Between work, exercise, netball, galleries, restaurants and being on hold to my real estate agent I don’t spend much of my time taking ‘time out’. Usually that’s the way I like it! But for someone who teeters very closely on the edge … Continue reading

Birthday Day Out

Birthday Day Out

Last year was definitely a birthday to remember, drinking wine and riding Vespas in the winter, Tuscan sunshine. This year I wanted to do something a bit closer to home. It’s not always easy to rally people to get excited for a birthday in chilly February but this year I managed to attract a small … Continue reading

Bologna on a whim…

Bologna on a whim…

The definition of magic – having a spare weekend and a spare £35 and ending up with flights to Bologna! With very little effort, funds or planning (beyond printing out the Trip Advisor Top Ten), we had an incredible girls’ trip to this amazing and completely underrated northern Italian city. I’ve heard very little of Bologna … Continue reading

Top five cities for life – to celebrate 100 posts!

Top five cities for life – to celebrate 100 posts!

To celebrate my hundredth post I have decided to do the ubiquitous ‘my bestest ever cities I’ve travelled!’ list. I’ve chosen five cities with that ‘I could definitely live here’ vibe. I could put in all sorts of qualifications of this being ‘so far’ and ‘only my opinion’ and ‘all about the individual experience’ but, … Continue reading
