A Tranquil Escape to Pembrokeshire

July 22, 2019

It can be strange can’t it, this ole thing called life. So many twists and turns. Well a strangers kindness provided us with a tranquil escape in Pembrokeshire, that we perhaps didn’t realise quite how much we needed. Nik and I have always found that being surrounded by nature is restorative and restful, and the beautiful bolt hole in Pembrokeshire that we have just returned…

Afternoon Tea at The Melody, Hammersmiths Filmstar Secret

July 16, 2019

Stepping outside of the tube station in Hammersmith, West London, we were a little unsure where we were heading for our afternoon tea. We knew we were off to The Melody restaurant, and we knew it was located within St Paul’s Hotel. That was what our gift experience voucher informed us anyway. We had been gifted this afternoon tea at The Melody by our eldest…

Things to do on a Short Break in Jersey

July 5, 2019

In truth, I wasn’t really too sure what I was expecting of Jersey. It was not somewhere that had been on our radar, yet all of a sudden we were booked and going!

A Recommended Stay in Jersey, The Channel Islands

June 30, 2019

Picture a manor house, built in the 14th century, with grounds that are far reaching and manicured to perfection. Look up towards the house and see the manor’s staff waiting to greet you, welcoming smiles on their faces, and ready to take your luggage. Now, add to that a complete feeling of calm the minute you enter through the archway leading onto the gravel driveway,…

Executive Treat in The Grosvenor Hotel, London

June 23, 2019

I didn’t expect to find myself writing this review. In truth, our first stay at The Grosvenor Hotel fell very short of my expectations, and I didn’t think I would ever find myself staying there again! However, I always feel that you can tell a lot about a company and its attitude towards its business, in how they deal with an unhappy customer when something…

Sunday Brunch at The Gherkin, London

June 19, 2019

Brunch. The fanciest of fancy-ness. There is something a little indulgent about having brunch, especially when it is accompanied by beautifully chilled glasses of champagne! Well, we were that fancy last weekend when we headed up to the 39th floor of the iconic Gherkin to try the Searcys Sunday brunch in the Helix restaurant. Now, Sunday brunch at The Gherkin comprises of four courses, so…

Finding Adventure in a Staycation

June 12, 2019

Cast your mind back to your childhood. Did you ever go down to the bottom of your garden, be it a big or small area, to investigate what was under rocks or whether there really was fairies living at the end? Can you recall getting into the car with your parents to drive to your cousins house, and it seeming that you were in the…

A Day in Kent with National Trust

One of the reasons that I started this blog, was to hopefully encourage and inspire people to explore more, add to their memories, travel both near and far and try new experiences. Life is for living fully and enjoying after all isn’t it! One of the things that Nik and I vowed to do a couple of years back, was explore more of the beautiful…
