Amsterdam (after King’s Day Madness)

Although we woke up on Sunday morning without a hangover, it was clear that the rest of Amsterdam was suffering after the madness that ensued the day before. Even the weather, which had been glorious the day before, seemed to be feeling it, demonstrated by grey skies and drizzle. The only people about were street cleaners (who really had their work cut out), tour groups and us. On recommendation from the friend we stayed with, ...

A deliciously easy lemon bar recipe

We always seem to have lemons hidden away in the back of the fridge and, as good as this lemon drizzle cake is, we thought we'd try something a bit different with them. We're moving house (again) and so this meant moving the hundreds of cookery books my parents have acquired over the years. If you think I'm joking about the amount of cookery books, I'm not. They've got some that are priced in shillings ...

Travel in 2014: Ecuador Bucket List

IMG Credit After partying with the World Cup crowds in Rio and learning to Tango in Buneos Aires, Ecuador looks to be completely different. Ecuador is considered to be one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. Think Volcanos, mountain ranges and, of course, the wildlife and scenery found on the Galapagos Islands. For a country so diverse, a diverse bucket list is to be expected. Whilst most trips of the Galapagos involve a ...

Travel in 2014: Argentina Bucket List

source: unknown found via Pinterest After visiting Iguazu Falls from the Brazilian side we're working our way down Argentina to Buenos Aires. I've realised I know very, very little about Argentina. In fact my knowledge kind of starts with 'Buenos Aires' and stops with 'tango'. I'm clearly going to have to learn more about this country before we get there! // Eat a good steak. If there's one thing I've learnt Argentina seems to be ...

Roots, Norwich

On Thursday my sister and I headed away from the beach to the big city of Norwich. We wanted shops and good food; and boy did we find the latter! Come lunch time we decided we'd head over to Flathouse, a newish place in Norwich that Jenny recommended, which seems to serve up delicious flatbreads. So, following the GPS on my phone we headed through The Lanes and in search of Flathouse. On our way ...

Brunch At Merci In Paris

Last Monday I was tucking in to a delicious brunch in Paris. Oh, I wish I was back there now! It seems to be a habit (let's call it a tradition), that on the last day of our weekends away we find a cool café in which to sit for a few hours and brunch. It happened in Oslo and it was to happen again in Paris. This time we were headed from Bunch at Merci! ...

A Valentine’s Weekend In Paris

I have to admit we cheated a little bit. My Valentine's Day was last weekend and we celebrated in style by getting the Eurostar to Paris. I like to think that having Valentines last weekend meant we avoided being a complete cliché... (you may disagree). Really it was because the Eurostar had a sale on and travelling to Paris isn't cheap on actual Valentine's Day y'know! These are a few random shots from the weekend. ...
