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, I jumped at the chance. A quick search for an…

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 sandy beach, plenty of pubs and restaurants and the…

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 night! Grand plans – well, grandish plans – were made…

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 so long, I couldn’t miss the opportunity to visit one…

Postcard from…Temple Church

As if the inside of the church isn’t stunning enough, the outside of Temple Church is just as interesting to look at! The level of detail on this hidden London church isn’t on the same level as Sagrada Familia or Notre Dame, but it’s the modesty and simplicity that make it…

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 couple of hours drive from West London, passing Heathrow airport…

Ben’s Cookies

In this world there are cookies, and then there are Ben’s Cookies. Located in several cities across England, with a number of shops in London (thankfully!), there are plenty of opportunities to sample the delights on offer in store. Each shop I’ve been to – maybe four? – has been…

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 one of my favourites because it shows the Hertford Bridge,…

Cake and Bake Show 2014

To celebrate another year of ageing, one of the gifts I received for my birthday was two tickets to the cake and bake show at Earls Court in London. My lovely boyfriend had the pleasure of accompanying me, which he only agreed to because he thought there’d be cake samples.…

The town that decorated!

The small market town of Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire, England has found a unique way to commemorate our fallen soldiers – they have decorated their quaint little town centre with poppies. But not real poppies, or the type you’d fasten to your coat. Instead, they’ve knitted loads of poppies in…

Harry Potter Studio Tour, England

The books stole the heart of almost every child and adult who read them, and the films captured those who were left. I’m hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t like Harry Potter or who hasn’t seen the films. And this could be the reason that Warner Bros hit a…

Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world! It was built in the 1200s, and many of the monarchs who’ve occupied the castle have made amendments to make it more regal, bigger or more ‘authentic’. It’s not just one castle, as may first spring to mind,…

Photo Friday: Colourful Tree

Well, your guess is as good as mine! In the upmarket London area of Mayfair, there’s a small park surrounded by fancy hotels and top-notch car showrooms. It’s a lovely little oasis in the midst of all the traffic and huge buildings. And in the middle – this random tree.…

La Tasca, Windsor

Tapas is my favourite meal, no question about it. But tapas can vary so much, that you can’t always be sure what you’re going to get. As far as I’m aware, the traditional tapas is Spanish, but when trying to find a tapas bar near my home I stumbled upon…
