Soaking up nature at Stowe House and Gardens

Soaking up nature at Stowe House and Gardens

16th June 2017 No Comment
I’ve done a lot of travel with work over the last few months, so now I’m home for a while it’s time for me to start exploring more of my local area. I live in a rural part of the country, just down the road from Stowe in Buckinghamshire. This pretty little village is home […]
Sunset cruise in Kochi, home of the Indian spice trade

Sunset cruise in Kochi, home of the Indian spice trade

4th June 2017 No Comment
Kochi (or Cochin) is a city located in the state of Kerala, which is in south-west India. I took advantage of a complimentary sunset cruise offered by my hotel to see more of this fascinating city. It is located on the coast and is characterised by a series of intricate waterways that flow out into […]
Driving the Santa Monica Mountains

Driving the Santa Monica Mountains

1st June 2017 No Comment
During my recent trip to LA, I stumbled across the Santa Monica Mountains completely by accident. I had a spare evening and thought I’d take a drive out to Malibu to the beach, as this surely was the thing to do in late May in Socal. However, sometimes the best laid plans just aren’t the […]
One day in… Warsaw, Poland

One day in… Warsaw, Poland

5th May 2017 No Comment
Last year was the first time I had the opportunity to go and visit Poland. Although I’d never been before, I’d heard from others that it’s a lovely country and I wasn’t disappointed! I only went to Warsaw so I can’t comment on other cities, but I found it to be very safe, the people […]
Dartmouth, England

Dartmouth, England

17th April 2017 No Comment
This year, we spent a few days before Easter in Dartmouth, on the south coast of England. The weather was absolutely beautiful, and I’d highly recommend a stop in this quaint little seaside town if you’re planning a trip to this part of the world. Dartmouth is located (unsurprisingly) at the mouth of the River […]
Café Pergamino, Medellin

Café Pergamino, Medellin

26th November 2016 No Comment
Although I’ll sit down at some point and do a separate post on Medellin more generally, I feel that Café Pergamino warrants its own post. Earlier this week I was in Medellin on my second visit to this lovely city in the heart of Colombia and the one thing I had to do was visit […]
Munich, Germany (Christmas Market Special)

Munich, Germany (Christmas Market Special)

15th November 2016 No Comment
First of all, if you’ve never visited Munich, I’d highly recommend it! Located in southern Germany in the Bundesland (state) of Bavaria, Munich is full of culture and food all-year round that is representative of how non-Germans view ‘traditional’ Germany. It’s the home of Lederhosen, the Hofbräuhaus and a plethora of over 20 Christmas markets […]
