After a day exploring Stuttgart (and the markets at night), we decided to step out of the city in search of what lay outside of the city. The recommendation, by and large, was to go to Tubingen and if I’m totally honest, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. I knew there was a row … Continue Reading

The next day in St Pete started off nice and slow. We’d spent the last few days traipsing across Clearwater and St Pete (including the natural beauty that is Caladesi Island) almost non-stop, that I realised we hadn’t even taken a moment to enjoy some of what this part of Florida is famous for – … Continue Reading

I’ve gotta admit, when it comes to Japan, most people’s thoughts (ours included) tends to go to cities and so the best hikes in Japan are understandably some of the most over-looked parts of most people’s visit to the land of the rising sun. The bright neon lights of Japanese cities have long appealed to … Continue Reading

The best hikes in Nepal always seem to draw up connotations of scary, adrenaline-fuelled, record-breaking hikes up to Mount Everest (understandably too – Nepal is home to 8 of the 10 tallest mountains in the world, after all) but what surprises most people is that there’s so much much Nepal than just icy jagged mountains. … Continue Reading

After our full day exploring Calgary (and eating our way through it), it was finally time to bid the city farewell and head out into the Canadian Rocky Mountains of Alberta. Canadian cities are great fun (especially if you know the best places to eat, drink and dance) but the great outdoors is without a … Continue Reading

The following morning, we bade farewell to Clearwater a little too late to squeeze in any proper breakfast. (Save for a quick pastry and a coffee as we left). Leaving Clearwater, we didn’t really have any plans but we’d gotten a few recommendations along the way – one of which was John’s Pass Village. A … Continue Reading

We arrived into Florida on the sunniest of afternoons (like one of those afternoons that was hot – even for Floridians), which instantly put a smile on my face. It had just been grey in London and the weather was having one of those transitional “not-cold-enough-for-coats but also not-warm-enough-to-go-out-without-one” kinda limbo moments (which happens over … Continue Reading

Greece is an incredible country to visit and one of Europe’s most beautiful areas to visit. With its iconic Greek islands, long history and the yummiest Greek Food, there literally thousands of the best places in Greece to visit. That being said, you won’t be able to do them all in one trip! 😉 This … Continue Reading

Oh, I’ve wanted to tell you about this bit for ages! Like, as soon as it happened, all I wanted to do was share it but somehow I’ve not managed to get the time to do this until now. (*It probably doesn’t help that I ended up taking like 1 million photos from this afternoon … Continue Reading

After spending the day on the Farne Island the day before, we decided to start our day nice and chilled visiting the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. After all, a microgap is about not just getting to explore an area but getting to lean into things you love in said-area (and I’m definitely partial to be … Continue Reading

Leaving the Royal tombs, we headed off in the direction of the sunshine – or at least, the sunlit parts of Petra thus far, a path that was due to take us to the Monastery, another iconic part of Petrea set high up in the mountains. For some reason, I get performance anxiety whenever I … Continue Reading

We had such grand plans for lunch in Calgary. We had recommendations from Instagram, we had locals recommend stuff to us and even did some research in advance. Leaving lunch as late as we did, however, threw all of those plans out of the window as we hot-footed it to what was one of the … Continue Reading

Waking up refreshed from yesterday’s adventure around Northumberland, we headed down for a relaxing and chilled breakfast in the Joiner’s Arms. As they say, ‘all happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast’ and this was just that. After filling up on mountains of fresh fruit, pots of tea and English breakfast (minus black pudding and mushrooms … Continue Reading

Our trip to Jordan was booked on something of a whim. One day we sat down over wines and talked about places we’d like to visit soon. Our friend Georgia made a short list and Jordan was one of the places on said list. The following week, we just couldn’t shake the thought of Jordan … Continue Reading
