Visiting Malta Last Minute

It’s not often you decide to randomly go to Malta last minute, but when S sat across from me and said the words “we haven’t taken a holiday in 9 months” I immediately got to planning. You see, I tend to get restless after 3-4 months of not travelling, and yes, I know that being […]

Salterns Way: My Favourite Cycling Route

Cycling along Salterns Way and catching the Bosham to Itchenor Ferry has officially become one of my favourite “it’s warm in England so I must be outside” activities. You see, as I’m sure you’re all aware, England isn’t the warmest of countries. It’s often grey (there’s no arguing that), but it’s also mild. With the […]

Visiting Hever Castle

Located in the heart of Hever in Kent, is Hever Castle. A place which began as a country house built in the 13th century, and on one summer’s day, became the destination of a road trip of me and one of my favourite Kiwis, Emma. We decided upon Hever Castle as it was the a […]

Spending Two Days In Venice

Spending two days in Venice was one of the highlights of my trip to Italy. You see, there are certain places you end up writing off your travel list without even looking as you assume it will be too expensive—and for me, Venice was one such place. But then came along the last minute travel […]

Things To Do In Murano, Venice

When I found myself in Venice for two days I couldn’t help but look for things to do in Murano. After spending our first day roaming around the city, getting lost in the labyrinth of walkways, I wanted day two to be a little bit different. To be a day of venturing further afield. Which […]

Walking Around Venice

After hopping on the train from Rome, it wasn’t long before we found ourselves walking around Venice. But before we get to that part, let’s rewind a little. After spending four days in Rome taking in as many sights and flavours as we could manage, we packed up our suitcase and made our way to […]

Visiting St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City

Visiting St Peter’s Basilica was something I almost didn’t do. After spending the morning exploring the Vatican Museums I very much had information fatigue and wasn’t sure I could take any more in. But it was our last full day in Rome which meant it was the only time S and I had left to […]

Vatican City Museums

“When in Rome.” It’s a sentence used by many. Whether as a dismissal for eating ”too much” pizza, devouring too much gelato (is there such a thing?) or when you wanna do something a little risky (or risque *wink wink*) and need an excuse for a lil’ encouragement. OR It’s a sentence that, when actually […]

St Peter’s Square, Vatican City

Featuring towering columns that surround you, almost like arms embracing you inside the world’s smallest country, is St Peter’s Square—otherwise known as Piazza San Pietro. Perhaps one of the most famous squares, St Peter’s Square has become quite the gathering spot for tourists—and with its location inside the Vatican City, just in front of St […]

Ragno D’oro

Ragna D’oro was a place that S found whilst we were in Rome.     It’s funny, when we’re in England S tends to leave the dining out options to me. I’ll usually get an “anywhere’s good”, an “I don’t mind” or a “wherever you want babe” when I ask where he’d like to go out […]
