The Vegan Gem of London’s Soho – Mildred’s

May 1, 2019

With its pastel blue exterior, cute pavement cafe style outdoor seating area, Mildreds, in the heart of London’s Soho, is as far removed from its original use as a seedy sex club, (complete with S&M padded cell in the basement) as you can get!

I love food. Plane and simple, food makes me happy. I love the social aspect of eating around a table, the laughter, the chatting. It just makes me feel content. Well Las Iguanas, the popular latin american inspired food chain, encourages you to do just that.

How City Breaks have shaped our Holiday Habits

April 1, 2019

The cases were closed. One last check of the weight, just to reassure myself for the ninety-ith time that they were not over our allowance, I satisfied myself of this and locked the case.
