As far as Greek holidays go, it’s probably safe to say that the islands (and some of the bigger cities in-land) tend to get most of the attention. Everyone wants (or has) that amazing photo of Santorini, Mykonos or Athens and very little spare a thought for some of the more rustic parts on the … Continue Reading

I can’t even begin to tell you how much and for how long I’ve wanted to visit Nepal. It’s been one place I’ve always been fascinated by – in large part due to Mount Everest and the Himalayas) but in other parts due to the absolutely fascinating history of the country. Well, as you can probably … Continue Reading

Our recent return to Portugal was certainly something of an eye opener! In addition to visiting a particular favourite of mine (Hey Lisbon), we got to head down to the coast and check out other parts of Portugal that we’d never seen of even heard of just a few months before visiting – it was … Continue Reading

Yup! We’re up in the Artic. I am writing this post looking right outside my window at a snow-clad mountain in one of the most beautiful places (and certainly the highest place) we’ve ever visit – Tromso in Norway! Sounds like a bold claim but I’m gonna put the photos down below and you can … Continue Reading

This week we’ve returned to Switzerland (as you could probably tell from our instagram) and for the most part of the week, we’ve basically flitted between the city lights of Zurich (and the tranquil charm of Ascona and Lake Maggiore in Ticino). It has been amazing! The weather has been so good (like ‘middle of … Continue Reading

Before all the jam-packed action in Tokyo and Seoul (…I’ve still got so much to tell you about that trip), we actually started off with a few days in Bilbao. Now Bilbao is a place we’ve only ever visited for the airport alone (it’s the gateway to the Spanish Basque Country) and so we decided … Continue Reading

You may have already seen the post on how we visited Japan recently but what that post doesn’t actually say (and I realise this now) is that Korea was actually the place we booked to visit. Our flights were direct to Seoul and Japan was just one of those “Well, we’re in this part of … Continue Reading

If you’ve been on our Instagram, Twitter or Facebook lately, you’ll probably have noticed that we’ve been to Japan – more specifically, Tokyo and I’ve got to say, this city is everything we’d hoped it would be and more. The trip came about as something of a last minute whim-after-wine with friends as we saw … Continue Reading

…a country so beautiful, diverse and intriguing that we couldn’t stay away for too long! 😉 We’re currently in Sri Lanka, which if you’ve been on our instagram or Facebook, you’ve probably already noticed. We were here earlier in the year for just under a week but a week isn’t nearly enough time to see … Continue Reading

For how much I love visiting Germany to see family (and for its Christmas markets), I realise that there’s so much of Germany I still haven’t seen and that I really REALLY wanted to. Well, a couple of weeks ago, we rectified that with Cologne and this city is such a treat and a fantastic … Continue Reading

By the point we arrived in Issigeac, we’d come to realise (and happily accept) that France’s Dordogne valley is filled with some of the most pictures villages, cities and towns in all the land. We’re talking about places that look like you’re stepping into a French fairytale and is the idea of France that we … Continue Reading

Our visit to Martel was rather last minute… We’d no idea where we were initially, only that it was beautiful and that we wanted to spend more time here and so we did! Visiting here, like any good French town (technically, a French commune) is like stepping back in time. It’s all cute French houses, even … Continue Reading

We’re in Peru!!! As you can probably tell from our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, we’ve been in Peru for just under a week now and have seen some pretty amazing sights across different parts of the country. We’d wanted to visit Peru last year and never quite made it so early this year, we locked … Continue Reading

As we mentioned briefly in this post here, we’re in Italy! Italy is such a favourite of mine and a big dream I’ve harboured for the longest time was to stay in a Tuscan farmhouse in the middle of the countryside and soak in some of that Italian ‘La Dolce Vita‘ (The Sweet Life). The original … Continue Reading
