An Impressive Guest List at The Vyne Basingstoke

September 7, 2019

If a house has names like Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and Jane Austen in its visitors book, you know you are in a pretty special place. Dances held at The Vyne were attended by Jane and her sister Cassandra, as their nephew Edward had married into the family that owned the house in the 1820’s. It is easy to imagine Jane Austen, known for her…

The Oak Tree Vegan Restaurant – Essex

August 25, 2019

I love it when somewhere surprises me. I love it when you have hopes of how something will be, and then it exceeds those hopes. Well, walking out into the fairy light strewn garden of the Oak Tree vegan restaurant in Leigh on Sea, we were given a little glimpse of how our expectations were going to be met. A courtyard style garden, dotted with…

Overcoming My Fear of Flying Anxiety

August 23, 2019

I will never forget the first time that I got fear of flying anxiety. It crept up on me with no warning, and trying to board a plane to Dublin, I was rooted to the spot. I was sweating, trembling, and my stomach felt like I had just got off the Waltzer at Walton on the Naze sea front! I clutched the side of the…

Places to see in Pembrokeshire

August 18, 2019

We were in awe of how beautiful St Davids cathedral was. We had just spent the morning wandering around it, learning its history, soaking in its atmosphere. There has been a church on the grounds where St Davids sits since the 6th century, so it seems to have an incredible serenity about it. We had spent time in the gardens, lazily people watching, strolling around…

Porto Santo, Portugal’s Paradise Island

August 10, 2019

Ahhhhh, beautiful Porto Santo, a small island in the Portuguese archipelago of Madeira. The laid back, sunshine island, nestled between its big sisters of Madeira and Portugal in the North Atlantic Ocean. Just 11km long and 6km wide, this little island is often overlooked as a European getaway. In my opinion it is perfect for couples, families, or anyone looking for a chilled out break,…

Carrie Bradshaw Ohhhhhhh how I loved Carrie Bradshaw and the girls. Sex and the City (or SATC as its known) was the show I binged watched…

Two New Greek Destinations to Introduce to You

July 29, 2019

Greece, and the Greek islands, will always hold a special place in my heart. It was while enjoying the freshest, tastiest olive filled salad, in the prettiest greek taverna, that Nik and I excitedly discussed the fact that “us two”, was soon to become ‘us three”. You see, we had found out a month before we flew out to the Greek island of Crete, that…
