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

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

I’ll just start by answering that question with a huge spoiler alert – a roadtrip from the UK to Austria is soooooooo much fun!  It isn’t necessarily the most obvious road trip route we would have thought of (in large part because we in the UK live on an island physically disconnect from mainland Europe) … Continue Reading

Being one of the larger islands in the Mediterranean, Cyprus is a pretty diverse and gorgeous island to explore. Perched on the eastern side of Europe (just south of Turkey), there’s a whole heap of gorgeous and best places in Cyprus that you really shouldn’t miss. And you know what, that’s the thing I loved … Continue Reading

Today was our final full day in Tignes and we planned to make the most of every second. Drawing the curtains of our chalet, we were greeted with the best weather ever! The sky was clear, there was no wind and the slopes looked so inviting. After a hearty breakfast of eggs, meats and plenty … Continue Reading

After arriving out our amazing chalet (and toasty night sleep), I woke up bright and early for a day on the slopes. I’m not typically a morning person (I wish I was) but the excitement of getting out onto the slopes and enjoy the runs around Tignes beat any caffeinated drink or loud alarms in … Continue Reading

Finland is a stunning country to explore. It’s one of those places that’s really diverse and actually quite different depending on what region of the country you visit. That being said, it can be hard to narrow down all of the best places in Finland into one trip, especially if you want to cram in … Continue Reading

York is one of those beautiful English cities that’s incredible to visit. Filled with mountains of history, that warm Yorkshire charm and oodles of foodie haunts, there are literally hundreds of the best things to do in York dotted all across the city. It’s totally quaint and a city you can’t miss in England. That … Continue Reading

I am one of those people that never learned to ski growing up. In fact, I didn’t really start skiing until around six years ago. That being said, skiing is now one of my favourite winter trips to go on… and, surprisingly (or perhaps not), not just because of the skiing itself. As they say, … Continue Reading

On our final morning in York, I got up bright and early – super eager to check out a couple of places I knew I just couldn’t leave the city without visiting! But not before a long and leisurely (not to mention, delicious) breakfast at Gray’s Court! The first spot I wanted to visit was … Continue Reading

After that amazing lunch, well-fed and tummies bulging to show for it, we traipsed through town toward York Minster – the utterly beautiful cathedral which we had made a mission to climb this very afternoon! In retrospect, it would probably have made sense to climb it the day before as the sun was shining but … Continue Reading

The next day in York was perhaps the fastest I’ve ever gotten ready (or at least pretty close). For starters, the breakfast at the Gray’s Court hotel is something worth arriving early and leaving enough time to enjoy (didn’t take any photos today but promise to take my camera with me tomorrow so I can … Continue Reading

Several months ago, after wanting to for years, we finally got to visit Yorkshire in the North of England and boy, was it worth the wait! It was just everything I’d hoped it would be and more. My only ‘regret’ (I use that word very VERY loosely – Yorkshire was just so amazing) was that … Continue Reading

The Netherlands might be a relatively small country but don’t let its size put you off. There are some pretty incredible and best places in the Netherlands that aren’t just the key sites like Amsterdam. Yes, Amsterdam is pretty cool (and totally worthy of its amazing reputation), but it is easy to overlook some of the … Continue Reading
