What To Do If You Need Medical Attention On Holiday But Have Forgotten Your EHIC & Don’t Have Travel Insurance

Edit: November 2017 - Please be aware that you should NEVER pay for your EHIC . You can get an EHIC for free from the NHS. Sites that try and charge you when you've lost your EHIC are ripping you off and should not be trusted. They cannot get one any quicker than you can and it's more likely to be slower. Here's where to get your free EHIC card. Edit: January 2017 - I ...

Driving the Camino de Santiago. A Northern Spain Road Trip Itinerary

Northern Spain seems to be having a bit of a moment currently. I can't count on both my hands how many people I know of who have been in the past few months. I wasn't aware of this when we booked flights to Santander earlier this year to celebrate the boyfriends birthday; we just booked the flights as they were cheap and the beaches looked nice. It was only when I started doing research into ...

Day Trips from London: Country Walk in Sussex

If you've ever lived in London, or stayed there for more than a few weeks, you'll know that as great as being in London is, it's often even better to leave the city behind at the weekend and escape. The city is sometimes just too busy, too dirty, too noisy and sometimes you just need to get out for the day. The need for day trips from London hits us all sooner or later. So ...

Jimmy’s Secret Garden Pop Up

London is so inundated with popups nowadays that it's bard to know which ones are worth your time and which ones aren't. However, you can be sure you're in good hands when it comes to Jimmy Garcia's Secret Garden Pop Up in Clapham. Jimmy, the man behind last years' celebrate winter Pop Up, The Lodge in Balham, has unlocked the gate to 'The Secret Garden' in Clapham North this summer. Imaginatively and beautifullly decorated, the ...

Pulia, Borough Market

It may not be often that food is likened to religion, politics or sex but I'm about to do just that. You see, the thing is, people get as crazy passionate about food as they do religion, politics and sex. The difference being that I've heard fewer people argue about food unless, of course, it's about who gets the last slice of mozzarella... Whilst I don't know the opinions of Georges and Sarah, the owners ...

The Spa At Casta Diva Resort

As if our stay in Lake Como hadn't been relaxing enough, we notched the relaxation scale up even further with a visit to the spa at Casta Diva Resort. I love a good spa afternoon. There's no rush or need to do anything other than lie on a lounger or chill out in a jacuzzi. No urge or nagging thought on your mind that you should be doing something else. Basically the ultimate way to ...

Villa Carlotta, Tremezzo

Driving alongside Lake Como you'll spot many a fancy villa with beautifully preened gardens closed off behind 10ft gates and, perhaps, a security guard. There's something enchanting about old villas, especially when they're the size of Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo. I love a good nosey around someone else's house and out of all the villas we passed while on holiday in Lake Como, Villa Carlotta captured my interest. Set in over 70,000 squared metres of ...

Adventures in York & Rievaulx Abbey on video

It's time to share with you all a video I put together to show you my adventures in York and Rievaulx Abbey. I was in Yorkshire to stay at The Black Swan Hotel in Helmsley for the night and, rather than just go all the way north for just a night, I thought I'd make a proper break of it and spend one day visiting York, before spending a day in the county side with ...

Italian Dining in the Hills at La Fagurida

In the hills above the Italian town of Tremezzo on Lake Como is a traditional stone cottage which serves exceptional food. La Fagurida is a family run restaurant with two generations of Italian family working together to serve traditional fare from the Lombardy region of Italy. You'll need a car to get here, as the restaurant is situated at the top of a windy, scenic road. Or, if you really want to work up an ...
