Come il Latte – Rome’s Best Gelato?

Come il Latte was a place I discovered by accident. And “by accident” I mean it was a place I purposely sniffed out after sensing the sweet, sweet smell of freshly made waffle cones. You see, after arriving in Italy there was only one thing I wanted to do: eat. S and I had purposely […]

Last Minute Trip To Italy

Booking a last minute trip to Italy is pretty much my definition of fun. Well. Booking trips, in general, is my idea of fun—but last minute trips are that much more exciting and spontaneous. They can sometimes leave you in a bit of a tizzle if you don’t leave more than a few hours between booking a trip […]

Best Travel Deal Websites For Last Minute Trips

Finding the best travel deal websites can be a total pain in the ass sometimes. So many travel deal websites claim to offer last-minute trips, but in reality, don’t. They’re more… “last few weeks” rather than last minute, and when you only have a few days before you plan to go away, that isn’t very […]

Cobnor: Picnics and Perfect Weather

Cobnor is exactly the type of place I needed to just “be”. A place where I could be alone with my thoughts, with the sun on my skin and S by my side. A place with snacks (obviously, because seriously who leaves the house without them?) Only in this instance snacks got upgraded into a […]

Giggling Squid – Chichester*

Giggling Squid has recently set up a restaurant in Chichester and as somebody who is completely and utterly obsessed with Thai food, you can bet that I was first in line when they opened their doors. Almost literally, because on the 15th of June I was invited to the opening night of their Chichester branch. […]

Hello Again

As I sit in the garden I realise how annoying it is that the gentle breeze keeps blowing my hair gently across my back. It fucking tickles. To the right of me S’ motorbike cover ripples in the breeze causing a crinkling sound, broken only by the seagulls squawking from our roof, and the gentle […]

Find What You Love

There’s a saying which goes “find what you love and do more of it” and as we got back from our road trip around France my soul was once again soothed having spent the past week doing just that. Sure, by the time we got home it was dark, I was sweaty and I’m pretty sure […]

Are Last Minute Deals Dead?

It’s not often that I find myself with ten days off and no plans. Usually my locations are thought out with the places I want to see, go to and eat at. But when I discovered I had miscalculated my holiday allowance and had four days of holiday left to use I found myself in […]

WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!

The month was June, the day was Tuesday and I was spending it with Nikki as she was in England for a short while. As we walked along the Thames, my phone rang. “Hello Amy, it’s Annabelle, just calling to let you know that the vendor has accepted your offer”. I stopped dead in my […]

Picking The Right Travel Insurance Policy

Buying travel insurance is one of those things that so many people forget about until it’s too late. Travel insurance is one of those things that doesn’t cross your mind until your luggage is lost, your flight cancelled or you’ve hurt yourself and are faced with extortionate medical costs. Travel insurance is one of those […]
