Learning the lingo

I’m a big believer in learning the language of a place you are visiting. While this is not usually realistic, I think people should at least make the effort to learn a few key phrases, even if it is just…

Holocaust Memorial, Berlin

Built in 2005, the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin serves as a reminder of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. It’s not something you would instantly recognise as a memorial, but definitely worth a visit. I arrived in the busy Potsdamer…

Tenerife!

The wanderers return! We were quite late booking our holiday this year, as it’s been quite a hectic summer. My brother just got married, so we’ve had hen dos, stag dos, dress fittings, nail appointments, hair appointments and goodness knows…

Boardmasters Festival!

Well hello there! It’s been a while since my last post, and I’ve been very busy!! I’ve recently come back from Boardmasters festival in Newquay, and in preparation for the camping (I haven’t been since brownies!) we thought it’d be…

It’s been a while…

And I can’t even pretend it’s because I’ve been crazy busy because…well…I haven’t 🙁 I have however, been looking at the next trip! We’ve been back from Paris for about 6 weeks and I’m getting itchy feet…I want to plan…

Paris pics!

Paris again!

So after a long day visiting some well known landmarks, we called it a day after our extremely long stint at the Louvre (you can read about that and the previous days in Paris in my other posts). Another early…

The Louvre

After a casual stroll through Jardin des Tuileries past people enjoying the lazy afternoon sun, and children playing with boats, we were welcomed by the grand sight of the Musee du Louvre, or simply, the Louvre. We had a few…

Paris – The city of…

Love, culture, amazing sights, and above all sore feet! So we’ve just come back from a long weekend in Paris for my boyfriends birthday, and I’ll be honest…I wasn’t looking forward to it as much as other cities we’ve been…

The joys of home :)

So recently I’ve decided that in a bid to boost the travel fund, I should spend some time (and save some money) exploring and discovering the sights on offer in the UK. I’ve lived here my whole life, so I…

Choices Choices Choices!

Sometimes it can be a real struggle making some decisions. I’m not really talking little choices like BLT or chicken & stuffing sandwich for lunch – although it can be tricky sometimes! I’m thinking more along the lines of where…

You sound like you’re from Londooonnnn!!

Well hello there! So this weekend was a busy one…no trips abroad, but my boyfriend & I spent the day in London with his family for his mum’s birthday. In true English style, it was pouring down with rain, but…

Malagaaaa!!

Well, to be more precise, Estaponaaaaaa!! That’s right…I finally found out where we were going (when in the car driving to Estapona…). For those of you who, like me, have no idea where Estapona is, it’s a town halfway between…

Ooh dear!

So we’re off to Malaga tomorrow with a couple of friends and to be honest I have no idea of ANY of the details. This is so unlike me that I’m a bit nervous. All I know is the airport…

Got the postcard?

Why yes I do! What was the point in having postcards if I can’t show them off?! So, I’ve uploaded a few of my postcards, and I’ll add the others in if I ever get round to writing posts about…

Amsterdam!

So I’ve been back from Amsterdam for a few days, and thought it was about time I shared the fun my boyfriend and I had! It was a last minute booking, so I’ll be honest, I didn’t really know what…

Well That’s A Bit Last Minute!

Dag! I’ve been brushing up on my Dutch because….we’re off to Amsterdam! My boyfriend and I have been thinking about going for over a year now, but it wasn’t top of the list of places we wanted to go so…
