MY TOP 10 EUROPEAN CITIES

Updated May 2020 It took me a long time to compile this list simply because I kept disagreeing with myself. I planned a top ten then contemplated making it longer, to fit in the other places that definitely do warrant a mention but sadly don’t quite make it (in my eyes). Of course, there’s plenty … Continue reading MY TOP 10 EUROPEAN CITIES

2018 TRAVEL HIGHLIGHTS

This year has been a bit of a mad one, what with moving to the other side of the world and all. As well as that, I somehow managed to fit in a bunch of other trips, so these are my highlights.  Video: https://youtu.be/bfJJgxSydP4   New York This was an absolute dream trip with my mum. … Continue reading 2018 TRAVEL HIGHLIGHTS

DAY 4 | LOIRE VALLEY | WINE TRIP

After drinking all the wine and literally getting the ants out of my pants (check out the last post to understand this suitcase mishap), we left Domain de la Soucherie and continued our wine tour, this time heading to Chateau Bouvet Ladubay, located near Saumur. We got so ridiculously lucky with the weather, considering it … Continue reading DAY 4 | LOIRE VALLEY | WINE TRIP

Day 3 | TOURS | WINE TRIP

I just realised that in my last post (when we arrived in Tours), I didn't think to point out that Tours is a city in France. I did not arrive somewhere in order to take multiple tours. I'm not sure if that needed clarification or not but there you go. As you were.  TOURS Day … Continue reading Day 3 | TOURS | WINE TRIP

DAY 2 | PARIS – TOURS | WINE TOUR

Our second day, somehow, was even hotter than the first. We got up nice and early, put our shorts on and headed up to the Sacre Coeur (well, we got the metro most of the way but you get me) before visiting the Pompidou and then jumping on a train to Tours...  MONTMARTRE We got … Continue reading DAY 2 | PARIS – TOURS | WINE TOUR

DAY 1 | PARIS | FRENCH WINE TOUR

A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend and I spent a weekend in Paris, then got the train out to the Loire Valley for a few days with my parents touring and tasting the wine region. We got really, really lucky with the weather in that it was boiling hot with bright sunshine, out of … Continue reading DAY 1 | PARIS | FRENCH WINE TOUR

PARIS IN AUTUMN | WEEKEND WANDERING

Shred the missing posters. Stand down the news. We are still alive and in fact, very well. So well, that we've managed to make a 13 minute video of a 4 day jolly in Paris. The leaves were on the ground. Rain fell from the sky. Cold shrouded us. It was autumn and it was … Continue reading PARIS IN AUTUMN | WEEKEND WANDERING

VINTAGE SHOPPING | PARIS

Last week an ever so slight earth shattering disaster occurred in my home... I accidentally tumble dried one of my absolute favourite vintage jumpers. (I blame the new washing machine with confusing settings. I mean, why is there an automatic dry function on a wool spin?! WHY?) Not only was this jumper vintage, but it was … Continue reading VINTAGE SHOPPING | PARIS

12 HOURS ON A MEGABUS | PARIS

Before Christmas, I went with four friends to Paris, travelling by coach from London (megabus to be precise). It was one of the longest and most uncomfortable journeys of my life. I would sooner drive across America again than do that journey. But, it was incredibly cheap. So, you win some you lose some. We … Continue reading 12 HOURS ON A MEGABUS | PARIS
