Bath | Roman Ruins and Big Baths

Spontaneity is fun, but hard to fit in when every day seems to be super busy and planned so far in advance. So last week when my boyfriend suggested we head to the British city of Bath two days later,…

Postcard from…Ramsgate Harbour

The seaside town of Ramsgate is the perfect weekend escape from London. Within minutes of wandering along the boat-filled harbour, the stress of the week melts away and you’re ready to just…relax. There’s a bit of something for everyone, with…

A Night In London’s West End

My absolute favourite thing to do in London is visit the West End and see one of the world-famous shows that are on offer. Team it up with delicious German food, and it’s starting to sound like my kind of…

Postcards from…The Shard

Panoramic views of London don’t come much better than from The Shard, and on my recent visit to the viewing platforms on floors 68 and 69 I was lucky enough to have a clear day with superb views of the…

London Lumiere

The light festival has come to London! After trying to find a way to make it to Amsterdam’s light festival, I was thrilled to find out that London was hosting it’s own light festival. After wanting to see Amsterdam’s for…

Temple Church, London

Just in case I hadn’t already mentioned it – I love this church. I’ve shared the postcards I picked up while there and I wrote about how I ended up being able to see this church. It may not be…

It’s well known that there is loads to do in London. And I’m not just talking about the big sights like Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, but also the smaller things like the numerous markets and neighbourhoods. So when a…

Postcard from…Ramsgate

As a proper seaside town, Ramsgate has all the tourist-y souvenirs that you would expect – sticks of rock, magnets, t-shirts and the like. Of course, I picked a postcard up from my short stay in Ramsgate! While there, I didn’t…

Speedy trip to the seaside!

Tucked away in the southeast of England, Ramsgate is a charming seaside town. So when my boyfriend and I were invited to a family friend’s wedding there, we jumped at the chance for a mini break away! Although it’s just a…

Monkey Island Afternoon Tea

As a treat for my boyfriend, I thought it’d be nice to take him for afternoon tea. We’d already decided we were going to spend the day at Windsor Castle, so decided it’d be good to look for somewhere in…

Crowne Plaza Heythorp Park, Oxford

A weekend away with the family is always lovely, and when you’re actually spending the weekend at a spa hotel in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside it’s twice as nice. And I’m talking no signal on your phone kind…

Postcard from…Oxford

There are many reasons why I love the city of Oxford in England – there’s a huge amount of history, the world-famous Oxford University and stunning architecture to see. I picked up a few postcards in Oxford, but this is…

Photo Friday: In Love With A Lake

There’s a park close to my house with a lovely lake and plenty of space to enjoy a relaxing walk. We recently had a very rare, stunningly sunny day, and I just had to take advantage of the opportunity to…
