New York City Part 1: Central Park & Midtown Manhattan

New York is honestly one of my favourite cities in the world. A clichΓ©, I know. I’m really not a city person – I find them stuffy, crowded and stressful. You could say New York is all three of those things, but for some reason I just don’t care and always want to go back. […]

8 Hours Exploring Beautiful Bergen

We recently spent a long weekend in Norway. The main reason for our trip was to hike Trolltunga, but we also spent some time road-trippin’ around the Hardangerfjord region. To reach the fjord, we flew into Bergen – Norway’s second largest city. On the last day of our trip our flight home wasn’t until around […]

Road-trippin’ through the Hardangerfjord in Norway

If I had one piece of travel advice, it would be to rent a car whenever you can. Sure a group tour can save you a few pennies, but the freedom that comes with your own set of wheels is worth the extra splurge! We recently travelled to Norway for a long weekend with our […]

(Starting) The Buerbreen Glacier Hike

The morning after our hike to Trolltunga we ignored our aching muscles and started a second hike in the Hardangerfjord region to the Buarbreen Glacier. The photo above is the view from the parking lot – the glacier was such a striking shade of blue! The first part of the hike took us through a […]

What to pack for the 28km hike to Trolltunga!

At the end of last month I flew to Norway with Aled and some friends, and hiked Trolltunga! You can read more about the hike itself here. Trolltunga was my first black-rated hike, and so I took a lot of time reading blogs and doing my research before I left. Something that I thought would […]

Things I’ve Learnt From Planning A Wedding (Part 1)

Back in October last year, Aled proposed! We’re going for quite a long engagement because we’re both finishing our PhDs right now, so we don’t have a huuuuge amount of free time. And as someone who loves planning and researching and organising things, I want to relish in all of it (hehe). So, 9 months […]

Heathy Recipe: The Ultimate Summer Salad

After getting some really sweet comments about my post where I shared my healthy apple crumble recipe, I thought I’d prepare another foodie post on my favourite summer salad! It’s a great little side dish for a BBQ, a yummy lunch on it’s own, or a cheap and healthy dinner option (I usually eat it […]

Photography Journal: The North York Moors

A few months ago, we spent a lovely wintery weekend around the North York Moors…. and I completely forgot about the photos that I took! Most of the moors are quite flat, and so as someone who loves a good hike up a mountain, it wasn’t my favourite national park the U.K. has to offer. […]

The Little Things: My House Plant Obsession

So, I’ve become a little bit obsessed with house plants recently. I blame the dreamy interior posts on Kate La Vie’s blog. I just feel like a little bit of greenery really makes a room come to life. It somehow makes everything feel lighter, cleaner, and happier! So, I’ve gone to town a little bit […]

The Little Acre Kitchen: My New Favourite Lunch Spot

I LOVE food. One of the main reasons that I exercise regularly is that I could never diet. Life’s too short. Now, when it come to eating OUT, I can be a bit of a fuss-pot. I hate paying for food that I could make better myself. Because of this, I’m constantly on the look […]
