After our day as beekeepers in Devon (still fascinated by those little critters), we headed out the very next morning (post-breakfast) to explore even more of Devon. The whole idea of the Microgap, after all, is more than just trying out your hands on a new hobby (albeit in small bite-size travel chunks – like … Continue Reading

The United Kingdom has a whole heap of gorgeous towns, sleepy little villages and vibrant cities to explore! Yeah, I know I’m biased (being a Brit myself) but there’s so much to see across our beautiful islands. From sunny spots in the south of England to ancient villages that have stood for over a thousand … Continue Reading

Devon is one of those quintessential places in England that is a constant reminder of why it’s important to venture out of London (or other equally popular English cities) and venture out to see more. The trains are pretty good across the UK as a whole – yes, I know services can be delayed from … Continue Reading

London is an epic city! Now, yes – I know I’m always biased (being a Londoner) but our city is totally amazing. We really do have a whole heap of the best neighbourhoods in London… which, I’m sure you’ll love. Honestly, with all their diversity, culture and history, there’s every reason why you’ll find some best … Continue Reading

I’m not even going to start by explaining how obsessed with castles and palaces I am. Considering the last few posts on here, I kinda feel like this is a given now. Visiting a palace or castle that once upon a time had royalty living in it is one thing but getting to visit one … Continue Reading

The following morning, I’d never been more grateful to have the heated seat the lady at Avis gave use with our 4×4! The temperatures had plummeted overnight and, hopping back into the car, I can’t tell you how nice it was to not be sitting in freezing leather seats as we made our way up towards … Continue Reading

Back when we were students in St Andrews, there were plans to knock down the building at the waterfront in Dundee and replace them with a V&A Dundee. I don’t pay much attention to things like this but Lloyd does and as soon as we decided to head up to Scotland, this was one place … Continue Reading

Once upon a time, we used to live in Scotland (back when we were students up in St Andrews and after that working in Edinburgh) and one thing I really wished we’d done more of back then was to explore more of Scotland. It’s funny but even living in Edinburgh (which is one of the … Continue Reading

It might sound cheesy, but I have a very deep and real appreciation for London at Christmas. The winter chill, lashings of mulled wine (at the city’s markets) and, of course, the London Christmas markets that are dotted all around. It doesn’t matter if you’re staying central or venturing to some of the other neighbourhoods, there’s … Continue Reading

Hands-down, London is one of our favourite cities in all the world… not least because it is home! Now, in my opinion, one of the best things about our city is the amount of history hiding around every corner. The same goes for palaces in London – there’s just so many to explore. Obviously, if it’s your … Continue Reading

Perched in the heart of England, Birmingham is the country’s second largest city after London and one that’s great to explore… especially on a first time trip! With a handful of museums, country houses, parks and some incredible shopping spots, there really are so many amazing things to do in Birmingham. Whilst growing up in … Continue Reading

Cornwall is one of those areas in England that is just too beautiful to miss. Perched on the western leg of Great Britain, it’s one of the most southerly points in the UK. Best of all, there are so many amazing things to see in Cornwall that you’ll wanna go back again and again. From … Continue Reading

If it’s your first time in Great Britain, your gazillionth or you live here, you’ll have soon realised that there’s so much more to our great island than just London. Now, that’s not saying London is bad (it’s probably one of my favourite cities in the world) but we are so lucky to have such … Continue Reading

London is a foodie dream spot to visit! Thankfully, Long gone are those days of stodgy foods and bland meals (that I was told London once was). Today, the city is all about a diversity of flavours and that’s no different when it comes to finding the most gorge-worthy and very best burgers in London. … Continue Reading
