I’ve never sailed a boat before. I’ve been on a boat sailed by someone else, I’ve even gotten very very tipsy on many a boat but never gotten round to sailing it. When we got up on this very morning in Menorca, rain clouds standing guard and ready to pour open at any minute, it … Continue Reading

Yup, I’m a biased Brit that loves our gorgeous island! We’re so fortunate to live in such a diverse cultural and natural environment that is filled with numerous places to explore, a plethora of hard-to-understand accents and, of course, One Direction. 🤣 Great Britain has lots copious charming spots to explore, some within easy reach … Continue Reading

Mahon is the capital city of Menorca and it’s one of its prettiest! (Albeit, perhaps even more so in the sunshine). We visited late in the evening  when the skies had turned a bit grey (thankfully, we had sunshine in the afternoon for our boat ride) but the greys didn’t take away from the city’s charm … Continue Reading

After a busy lazy day in the Ciutadella (and have worked up quite the appetite), we headed over to Café Balear by the harbour, where we would be having dinner. Now Café Balear is one of the most popular restaurants in Menorca. Apparently, in the height of summer, it’s near impossible to get a table … Continue Reading

On our very first visit to Nimes, there was one place I’d really wanted to see but considering how you’d need to have a car (or go on a bus journey which was rumoured to be over 1 hour long) and we’d showed up with no plans on getting a car, I’d just decided that … Continue Reading

Italy is such a beautiful country to explore, from its gorgeous lakes in the north, the beautiful towns of Cinque Terre to the picturesque charm of Sicily, it really is one of Europe’s most diverse countries to visit. Just like every, new and exciting place, Italy is a total treasure trove of places you’ll want to see, … Continue Reading
