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. […]

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 a travel insurance policy is one of those things that so many people forget about until it’s too late. A travel insurance policy 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.

Recognising Travel Privilege

I love blogging, I love travelling – so the fact that travel blogging exists makes my heart incredibly happy. I’m able to read about adventures from all of the metaphorical corners of the globe, whilst sitting in my blanket with a cup of English Breakfast Tea.

Appreciating The Familiar

My car turned along the winding roads with the landscape above my steering wheel turning from leafy greens to a dusty pink. As the trees broke you could see the sun was beginning the process of setting and as I glanced upwards I could see Chichester Cathedral in the distance. Beneath the cathedral, were fields. […]

How To Dress For English Weather

You’d think that living in England would make me somewhat of an expert when it comes to dressing for the weather. Buuuuut you’d be wrong. You see, English weather is incredibly unpredictable and as a result nobody really knows what to wear. To be honest I, along with a ton of other people I’m sure, would quite […]

Representation Matters

I recently wrote a post dedicated to women and in that post, I mentioned that I didn’t really have a role model growing up. My exact words were: “I didn’t grow up with any female role models. The closest thing I had was Lara Croft, but to be honest she was a rich adventuring woman whose […]

Sant Yago, Southsea

As I sit here writing this, I’m sat in Sant Yago, one of my favourite restaurants in Southsea. We (S and I) came here last month for drinks with friends and decided that we should probably come back for food and so here we are. It’s St Patricks Day and the only table they had […]

My Ultimate Road Trip Playlist

The ultimate road trip playlist will vary from person to person, but for me; it’s a collection of all of the old time favourites that make me smile. A collection of the music that I wish I didn’t know the words to, the music which makes me happy enough to bop along in my chair […]
