Is there anything better than whiling away the afternoon with tea and cake?Probably not. And now I’m back in England, I shall take full advantage of it, especially when it’s Afternoon Tea Week… Continue reading
England: Tinsel and Tweed at Anglesey Abbey
I can’t believe we’re in 2020 already, but luckily we still have a few more days of Christmas and sparkle before twelfth night is here.A great place to visit to get rid of those January blues is Anglesey Abbey, where they’ve decked out their manor house with a sixties style Christmas twist.

2019 Travel Goals
Yes! Another year of travel is upon us and I can’t wait to get planning, Brexit be damned.
I will not let the unknown of ‘transport contracts within Europe’ ruin it for me. I shall make my travel master plan anyway and hope for the best!
I always find travel planning such an exciting time, but I always find myself lost with the amount of places I want to visit. I know that I can’t visit everywhere, so cutting it down to only a few places is always REALLY hard! Continue reading
Lunch at Trinity
If you saw my post a few weeks back, you’ll know that I made a fair few new food discoveries while I was home in Cambridge for the summer. One of those was Trinity.
Trinity is right in the centre of town, not surprisingly on Trinity Street and just across from the university college of the same name. Continue reading
Cambridge – 12 New Food Discoveries
Every time I go back home to Cambridge I love to visit my old favourites, obviously, but I also really enjoy trying new places and dishes too.
I always make a list of places that have opened that have tempted me to try, or recommendations from friends, or even places that are others’ tried and tested favourites that I haven’t had the chance to visit yet.
2018 was a good year of new food for me and although there was more than there is on this list, I’ve rounded it out to 12 of them. Plus, I’ve also added one of my boyfriend’s new favourites that he genuinely couldn’t get enough of while we were there. I’d like to say that a couple of these places are not new discoveries, but the dishes are and they just had to be shared. Continue reading
Springtime at Anglesey Abbey
Spring has, supposedly, sprung in the Northern Hemisphere, although I feel like the Beast from the East might have some other ideas!
England in the springtime is so beautiful – for the most part – full of flowers and colour and life. One of my favourite things to do on a sunny spring day is to go and explore somewhere outdoors so I can completely experience the change in season. The National Trust has a ton of great properties and open spaces to wander around in, so visiting one of those is always a good choice, mainly considering the fact that you know there’ll be a great big slice of cake waiting for you at the cafe at the end. A reward for all that walking you’re going to do. Continue reading
