This week I went on a work trip to Leiden, a beautiful city in the Netherlands. Within easy reach of its popular neighbour Amsterdam (a 15 minute train ride from Schipol Airport, to be exact), Leiden is the perfect place for anyone that wants to experience Holland without the crowds. Connected by a network of […]

Dan’s Guest Post: The Lichfield and Kakadu National Parks

Time for another guest post – yay! This one is from my friend from way back when, Dan (it feels so weird writing that…. you’ll always be Seymour to me…. well… ‘Cmor’, because when we were tweens we wrote everything phonetically). He’s an even keener travel bug than I am – I’m never quite sure […]

We adopted a fur baby! Meet our new fluffball

Meet Meier! (pronounced Maya – her first cat dad has Swiss-German roots, and she’s named after his old neighbour!).  Meier is a Lilac British Shorthair – I’ve always really wanted a shorthair – ever since watching the McVities advert really.

The Wedding Edit: Our Cotswolds Minimoon!

After our wedding day, we took a little time out for a minimoon in the Cotswolds. I spoke about this in my last post, but I’m so glad we did the minimoon thing, rather than going on our honeymoon straight away. After the wedding, we just wanted to spend time together and enjoy being husband […]

Since becoming a ‘sort-of’ member of the travel blogging community (I’m trying to get into twitter at the moment…It’s such a great way to chat to other bloggers.. but it’s also a platform that I’m not that naturally drawn to….. which is weird…. because it’s the one social media platform where I feel it’s okay […]

Fall in New England: Shelburne & Stowe

I’ve always wanted to experience the New England fall. Autumn is my favourite season at home, and the Americans just do it much, much better. So, after a short, but sweet, stay in New York City, we hopped on a Greyhound bus to Boston to collect our car. By the way, I would THOROUGHLY recommend […]

New York City Part 2: Downtown Manhattan

  New York is honestly one of my favourite cities in the world. A cliché, 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 […]
