It feels like I always start posts this way – but it has been a while since I have updated the blog! We’ve booked in quite a few trips for the summer, so far we have Croatia, France and Greece all booked in which will take us to the end of September. I can’t believe we are almost mid-July. Time is flying and we’ve already started thinking of some wintery Christmas breaks to start booking for December.
It doesn’t feel like too long ago that I was writing about Paris and Cardiff, but a couple of months later and I had checked off another two cities with a couple of weekends away.
Jeremy and I headed to Dublin at the start on February for the weekend. We didn’t realise at the time of booking, but it was the Saturday that Ireland played France in the Six Nations. We spent most of the Saturday night in a pub, drinking Dublin Blondes (not complaining) and watching the game. Continue reading “Winter Weekends Away (2nd Ed.)”
It has been far too long since I’ve made a blog post!
There will be one coming up soon on my weekend trips to Dublin and Copenhagen (I’m a bit behind I know).
Just for something quick (a few of you may have seen these photos already) I thought I would share the photos of the snow day we had a while back. Continue reading “Snow Day”
I was scrolling through my camera roll last week, wondering what I could blog about next and quickly realised that I hadn’t included any posts about food lately. What’s wrong with me?
I had been saving a few photos ever since my last food post (some of these photos date back to July 2017) so it’s well and truly time to pop some of these up and write a few quick reviews. Admittedly, I fell off the bandwagon toward the end of last year and totally forgot to keep taking photos, so a few of the best meals aren’t even pictured. Continue reading “Foodiaries (2nd Ed.)”
At the end of 2017, I decided I really wanted to make the most of every opportunity I had to travel in 2018. We are two weeks into the new year and I have already been to two new countries, have another lined up for the beginning of February, have a long weekend trip planned to France for August and also going to book a longer summer holiday for July sometime during the next week (that’s the goal anyway). So it’s safe to say that I am really heading into this year with all guns blazing and a very depleted bank balance. Continue reading “2018 – Two Weeks In, Two Countries Down”
During the lead up to Christmas, (while loading ourselves with fruit mince pies and chocolate gifts from work) we set into sorting out somewhere to escape to for the festive break. We (along with a group of friends) decided to go to Budapest, Hungary. The Christmas markets were meant to be one of the best in Europe, plus we had heard it was just a really amazing city overall. We knew it would be cold (but so was London) so we figured if we were going to be cold, we may as well be really cold with a good chance of snow for a white Christmas. Continue reading “Christmas & NYE, Away From Home”
Christmas feels like a distant memory, even though it was only a few weeks ago. The festive season was something I had been looking forward to ever since we arrived in London in May last year. Everyone knows I am a bit Christmas-obsessed, so as soon as it hit the 1st of December (it may or may not have been mid-November) I was out and about doing as many Christmassy activities as I could.
