It’s at least guaranteed to result in oodles of fun evening! If you’re not into food and/or drinks, you might wanna look away from this post. 🙂 When I’m not travelling, I can usually be found in 1 of 3 states – napping, eating or thinking about eating. I was in state 3 when I my mind wandered off … Continue Reading

**Update: This experience has now ended in London. This weekend we got to go check out Tongue Twister in London. Anyway, we rock up to the venue – which is the most colourful, Willy Wonka-esque set up in London and as soon as I saw, I instantly started getting excited. I’m a huge fan of anything … Continue Reading

Ah, macarons… These colourful (and apparently) tasty delights are a French treat famous the world over but I’ve gotta ask, are they really all they’re hyped up to be? I’ve never really understood the appeal of macarons, I’ve had them in the past and while they’re okay, they’re never like “Oh my gosh, I can’t … Continue Reading

Well they are amazing is what they are! In my last post, I kinda kept getting distracted by food, well this is that food post! So back to the matter at hand – Pintxos! Pintxos are technically Hors d’oeuvres but you can pretty much turn it into a main meal. The idea is basically that … Continue Reading

… and I’m not typically a burger person but more on that later. But before we get started, I’m gonna recommend that you honker down with a nice cuppa tea (or perhaps even a margarita) as this is a rather photo heavy post. 😉 One of my favourite parts of living in Central London is being … Continue Reading

Part of the reason we started Hand Luggage Only was to connect with more people who share our passion for travel so I am always delighted when we find out more about anything food or travel related.  I still get excited when someone tells me about a restaurant/bar/new attraction that I haven’t been to in … Continue Reading

Been meaning to put up a post to say this for ages but since I couldn’t figure out some ridiculously eloquent way of saying this, I figured I might as well blurt it out. As you already know (it’s no secret really), I’m a huge fan of FOOD (hence why there’s a whole category on … Continue Reading

I’ve slowly come to the realisation that a lot of people I know like Pork Pies. They’re quintessentially British and a traditional staple across the UK. This Christmas, I figured I’d try my hands at making one using a hybrid of two recipes and things having run quite swimmingly, I figured I’d share the results … Continue Reading

Twas the night before Christmas…. The cat was getting drunk on mulled wine… Santa, all ready for Christmas, took a bit of time off for some festive golf… …before heading out to deliver presents! Unfortunately however, Rudolph wasn’t having any of it! So Santa had to resort to more creative ways to deliver the presents… … Continue Reading

On a rather cold Sunday afternoon, I went off in search for a little something…  Well three things actually and I figured the best place to find them was Borough Market. To be honest, I was just looking for an excuse to head to Borough Market. It is one of my favourite places to wander … Continue Reading

Found these photos I took on Christmas day in the past and wanted to share them with you! I basically just went around the house, taking photos and scoffing everything I could lay my hands on (without my hands getting smacked away of course). This is a collection of the various things that went on … Continue Reading

I’m a big fan of pies! I don’t remember a pie I’ve ever said no to. Lately, I’ve been house hunting and spending ages looking at amazing homes on the internet and so to distract myself (intentionally or otherwise) my mind keep turning to pies. This is nothing new – I have my mind on … Continue Reading

I’ve been craving pies lately. Okay, I know this is nothing new (I always crave pie!) but this time I found myself near the supermarket and thought -why not? I’ll make a pie today. I like all kinds of pies… except pies with mushrooms in it – I just can’t get aboard the mushroom bandwagon, … Continue Reading

“And where is this place that offers the promise of amazing cocktails and entertainment all topped up with a stunning 360 view across not just the country it is in but some neighbouring countries in the distance?” You ask. It is 1-Altitude in Singapore. And just in case you were wondering, nope, this is not a … Continue Reading
