Foodiaries (2nd Ed.)

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.)”

2018 – Two Weeks In, Two Countries Down

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”

Festive London, 2017

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.  Continue reading “Festive London, 2017”

Winter Weekends Away

December has been a full-on month and it’s not even halfway over yet! Over the past few weeks, we have made the mission out of London for a couple of weekends away.

The first was Cardiff to watch the All Blacks v Wales at Principality Stadium. We headed out on Saturday morning on the train and were back on Sunday afternoon. It wasn’t a big weekend of exploring, but we were really just there for the rugby and it was well worth the trip! The atmosphere in the city was awesome and lasted well into the early hours of Sunday morning. A fire alarm in our hotel at 4am didn’t help the late night/celebratory beers situation (but we were too tired to even get out of bed). Continue reading “Winter Weekends Away”

Birthday, feat. Belgium, Beers, Basil, Blooms & Bikkies

If that title doesn’t grab you, I don’t know what will.

I’ve been lucky enough to celebrate my birthday over the past two weekends. Last weekend Jeremy surprised me with a trip to Brussels, Belgium (a weekend centred around food – right up my alley).

We set off on a four-hour chocolate tour (including a workshop) of Brussels after checking into our hotel. It was a pretty grey and drizzly day, but it was actually really fun running along the cobblestone streets and ducking in and out of cozy little chocolate boutiques. The chocolate was unbelievable and we tried truffles infused with basil, earl grey tea, nutella, rose champagne and violet – just to name a few! Continue reading “Birthday, feat.

A Week In Barcelona, Spain

Hi everyone, long time no blog! Sorry I have been a bit absent recently, we got back from our Top Deck tour of Italy only yesterday and it was very full on. I’ve managed to get this written out though so I can get started on the Italy post soon.

Barcelona seems like such a long time ago, even though it’s only been a few weeks. We headed off from Seville via train and arrived in Barcelona on June 2nd. I had heard great things about this city so I was looking forward to escaping the Seville heat and seeing what the second largest city in Spain had to offer.  Continue reading “A Week In Barcelona, Spain”

3(ish) Days In Seville, Spain

After our time in Portugal, we headed to Spain – first stop Seville. To be honest, I didn’t know much anything about Seville, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I can hands down say that Seville was my favourite city out of everywhere we had been so far (including Barcelona – I’m sitting here in our Barcelona Airbnb just before we check out writing this down).

I’m sure you can tell by the amount of photos I have to share below, that I simply couldn’t get enough of Seville.  Continue reading “3(ish) Days In Seville, Spain”
