My Family Christmas Traditions

Family Christmas traditions have a tendency to begin without you ever really noticing. They simply happen. One year you decide to do something fun – and then when you look back you realise you’ve been repeating it ever since. My family Christmas traditions happened just like that. I don’t remember them ever starting, just that […]

Ten Years

Ten years is a very long time. It’s between 56-60 dog years. Or if you prefer to count in human terms it’s 120 months. That’s 521.49 weeks (thanks Google) Or 87,600 hours. Whichever way you look at it, it’s a serious chunk of time. And it’s exactly how long I’ve spent with this fella:   […]

Halnaker Windmill, Chichester.

Halnaker Windmill is a spot that’s very much a local’s spot. Every day you’ll find dog walkers, Sunday strollers and avid photographers all venturing out to walk through the famous tree tunnel, and up to enjoy Halnaker Windmill and the panoramic views across Chichester which surround it. Although, in Autumn and winter it’s definitely advisable […]

Wylds Farm – Picking Our Christmas Tree!

Wylds Farm in Liss is a place where you can pick, cut and buy your own Christmas Tree. I stumbled across Wylds Farm whilst browsing Instagram‘s location feature last year, and after taking a trip to discover whats-what and coming home with a Christmas tree, I had a feeling it would end up becoming a […]

Trevi Fountain Rome

Visiting the Trevi Fountain in Rome kind of feels like a right of passage when visiting Italy. I mean everybody’s done it, and because of that, it means you should too, right? RIGHT. But the thing you should know when visiting the Trevi Fountain in Rome is that you won’t be alone. Those Instagram pictures […]

Eating At Bonci Pizzarium

Bonci Pizzarium was a place I discovered thanks to the taste buds of one of my favourite foodies: Nikki. Nikki’s blog and taste buds have guided me in many of my city adventures, and Italy was no different. The minute I announced that S and I were heading to Rome, notifications popped up with recommendations […]

Visiting The Pantheon In Rome

Visiting the Pantheon in Rome was something that happened by accident.   You see, I do this thing where I don’t really research places I’m going to. I’ll have a brief look at the weather so I know what to pack, put out a few messages to foodie friends to see if there are any […]

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 […]
