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…

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!

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,…

Discover the Bombay Sapphire Distillery

September 15, 2019

It was a slightly grey, almost misty start to the day. Rain threatened to fall from the swollen sky, but it did not dilute my mood. I was off to discover the Bombay Sapphire distillery, and learn more about the gin who’s taste, I need no introduction to! It felt like I had hit the jackpot when I learnt that every drop of the famous…

Ethical Mistakes I made Travelling – Wildlife Tourism

September 12, 2019

From as young as I can remember, I have had a thing for animals. Not just a thing, an obsession. My parents would say that from the time I could talk I was always asking for a pet of some description. I had countless scrap books full of pictures of animals I had cut from magazines, carefully creating a collage of my furry friends. This…
