This time next week, I will be basking in the glory of the English sunshine and I cannot wait.
There’s just something about the British summer that gives me all the joy. Plus, I’m managing to squeeze in the end of spring to my trip so all the spring flowers will still be in bloom. Happiness! Continue reading
How are you so beautiful? Continue reading
I love Disney.
I honestly can’t get enough of it. I love watching the movies, listening to the soundtracks, and best of all, visiting the Disney parks. Continue reading
Paris is a wonderful city to visit, but it’s also a city that foodie dreams are made of. From flakey croissants, buttery baguettes and chocolate filled desserts, to creamy pate, cheese and confit duck. My list of places to visit when I come here is almost always made up of restaurants, cafes and bakeries, so inevitably I spend most of my days in Paris eating and drinking – which is never a bad thing.
I’ve been lucky enough to experience quite a lot of different locations and environments within Peru. The cities, both new and ancient, definitely have their charms, but this country is filled with so much natural beauty that just begs to be seen and explored and there is still so much for me to discover (the Amazon rainforest and the region of Cajamarca, to name just a couple).
In honour of Earth Day today I wanted to share with you some of my favourite areas of natural beauty here in Peru. Continue reading
Back in December I made my first ever trip to Germany, partly to visit the Christmas markets but partly just to spend time in one of Germany’s beautiful cities.
I chose Munich as it seemed to have the best of everything. A thriving food and drink scene, a gorgeous old town, a highly recommended Christmas market (post here) and a stunning surrounding area full of snowy mountains and fairytale castles (post here). Continue reading
Since I was a child, it had been an ambition of mine to visit Pompeii, and a few months ago I finally made the trip.
It was as interesting and spectacular as I imagined – perhaps even more so – but the scale of it was far larger than I had thought it would be. Continue reading
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
New York, New York, what a wonderful town….
And wonderful it sure is, especially the food and drink scene. From fancy restaurants and rooftop bars to markets and traditional street food, New York City has it all. There is so much to be savoured and never enough time to try it all, so I thought I would share a few of my favourite finds from my most recent visit to the Big Apple.
I hope you find something to tickle your tastebuds! Continue reading
Punta Sal is one of my favourite places in all of Peru and I’m sure you can see why.
In February we spent a couple of days exploring a little section of the Gulf Coast of Florida. It was a delightful 48 hours spent wandering the beaches, eating ice cream and drinking local beers. The sky was blue, the sea was turquoise, the sand was white and the parks were truly beautiful. We stuck to the southern barrier islands to the west of St. Petersburg, namely Treasure Island, St Pete Beach and Fort de Soto.
There is so much to do in these beachside towns that you could probably spend a good week here and still not quite do everything! I’ve made a little guide to everything we experienced when we were there in the hopes of giving you a good starting point. Continue reading
Walt Disney World is one of the most enjoyable places I’ve visited, but the fun is not just contained within the parks! There’s a lot you can do within the resort itself without needing to buy an entry ticket to the four main sites. One of the numerous activities on offer here is mini golf.
