Searcys at The Gherkin – Drinks with a View

November 7, 2019

Nik and I have become people that no longer “wait for a special occasion”. If his cancer fight has taught us anything, it is to live for the day and just enjoy this beautiful life. Tomorrow is promised to none of us, so look around you and find joy in the every day. Wear your new coat to walk the dog in the woods. Light…

London Bridge Area Uncovered – In a Day

October 29, 2019

London Town. The first City to steal my heart. The City that has a skyline so familiar to me, it always feels like home. Nik and I love to hop on the train and take the 20 minute journey “into town” and explore. Lately, we have been picking an area of London to go into and uncover what it has to offer. Recently we did…

Quirky Hotels London – Batty Langleys

October 23, 2019

Bartholomew Langley, Or Batty as he was better known, was quite the character. With his eye for detail, and penchant for the extravagant, Batty was the perfect choice to design your Georgian home if you were fortunate enough to be in the wealthier classes of the time. His handbooks, published in the early 1700’s, were meant as a guide to ensure that your home was…

Glamping in Essex – A Peaceful Staycation

October 17, 2019

Imagine sitting at the edge of a lake, with uninterrupted views of its entirety. Watching the resident ducks emerge from the weeping willow branches dipping into the lake. The gentle meandering of them making their way to the lakes island, ready to settle for the night. Imagine yourself immersed in the scene unfolding before you, as day slowly dims its lights to welcome night. As…

Things to do in Vegas

October 13, 2019

Las Vegas! The land that never sleeps. The place where (almost) anything goes. The absolute opposite of slow travel, but one I wanted to share with you anyway. It was the destination that my husband picked for his 40th birthday! We had set off for our five night jaunt in the October following his birthday in June. Now, I need to share with you in…

Greenwoods Hotel and Spa

October 7, 2019

According to the weather forecast, it was due to rain all day. In fact, some weather reports were threatening that the arrival of Autumn was going to be marked via gale force winds and torrential rain! However, driving along meandering, leafy lanes that take you through the Essex village of Stock, cloudy, but dry skies overhead, we were wondering if the weather gods had taken…

Books to Inspire your Travels

October 1, 2019

Autumn. My absolute favourite season. I adore everything about it. The colours the season paints nature with. The lightly burnished, bright days. The crisp bite to the mornings. The crunch of leaves underfoot. I also get excited that it makes me want to enjoy days where I hibernate in my home. I seek out a cosy corner, have endless cups of tea on the go,…

What Is Travel, and Who Decides Anyway?

September 25, 2019

And quite frankly, where is the rule book? It is time for the monthly cuppa and a chat post my lovelies. Although this month it has a travel focus, I think that actually, a similar level of judgment is aimed at many subjects. We are going to be talking about “travel snobbery”, and asking the question, who decides what is travel? By its very definition,…
