Travel

This started off as a travel blog, but life happened and travel had to take a back seat. I still love to take trips every now and then, so here’s where you’ll find all my recommendations – from hotel and food reviews to city break ideas and long holidays in the sun. Travel tips, city breaks, hotel reviews and beach breaks.

Our Berlin mini moon – history, photography and bratwurst

We finally did it. We got married! And it was wonderful. People tell you how exciting the day will be and that it’ll go past in a blur, but you don’t realise they actually mean it! We were so tired and stressed with planning the whole thing that we decided…

A Berlin city break – send me your tips!

A Berlin city break has been on our wish list for some time. I was going to treat myself to a long weekend around my birthday last year but, as usual, other things got in the way. So, we decided we’d keep our Berlin break for a post-wedding mini-moon! We’ll…

Vintage Afternoon Tea in London – Reform Social & Grill

With only two months to go until the wedding, last week was my final wedding dress fitting and the day I was able to take it home. My mum had the very heavy and stressful job of taking it home with her, after making her way to London for the…

Highlights of a weekend in Rome

Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck made Rome the setting for an exciting romance, Anita Ekberg made the Trevi Fountain look sexy and Charlton Heston brought back some life into the Circus Maximus. We chose a weekend in Rome as our ideal city break – spending hours taking in marvellous views,…

Aruba honeymoon guide

The first time I heard about Aruba was on Friends, when Rachel explained she was supposed to be on her honeymoon but instead was sitting in Monica’s kitchen, still wearing her wedding dress. I had no idea it was in the Caribbean, neither did I know it was a popular…

5 cities I’d visit twice

It’s great to explore the globe and discover new and exciting places, but there’s something to be said for re-visiting the cities you loved the first time around. I don’t see anything wrong with going back to a city that stole my heart at some point in my life, particularly…

Honeymoon ideas – where are our top destinations?

Choosing a honeymoon destination is proving more difficult for us than picking flowers and the menu. Finding my wedding dress was easier than deciding honeymoon ideas after the big day. For some, a honeymoon isn’t a necessity. But since we love travelling and can’t wait to organise our next trip,…

Gaudí’s masterpiece – La Sagrada Familia

It took us a while to get to Barcelona, choosing instead to go to Lisbon and on a US road trip first. But when we did eventually make it to Spain, we were so glad we did. One thing that stood out for me in Barcelona was the Sagrada Familia.…

Dino Snores at The Natural History Museum

I slept with 200 people at The Natural History Museum. In the Central Hall, under the watchful skeleton of Dippy the Diplodocus. When NHM London first advertised their Dino Snores night, I was gutted to read that it was only for kids. ‘What about the adults?’ I replied, ‘We want…

Beautiful Barca – a long weekend in Barcelona

Since we got engaged (yeah, I’ll shut up about that at some point), we’ve been squirrelling our salaries away to save for our upcoming wedding. But we couldn’t handle planning such an event without a little break to recharge and forget about decorations and guest lists for a bit. I’d…

Enjoying a London summer with Tea India

Who else has been enjoying the amazingly good weather the UK has been getting recently? Getting some sun is one of the main reasons I jet off to hotter climes, so it’s been nice to live beyond 25 degrees at home for a change. The weekend felt like a holiday…

Explore your city with the Vivi in Stile app from …

Finding something new to investigate in London is one of my favourite things to do. Often I rely on friends telling me where to go and newsletters shouting about what’s new, but this time I used a handy app from Peroni. Since both me and my fiancée work office jobs,…
