TALLINN | DAY 4 | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

After a long day of walking,  we drove into central Tallinn for a meander around the old town. We were incredibly lucky with the weather - cold but not too cold for a wander. Even the bursts of rain timed themselves perfectly, appearing only as we went inside. OLD TOWN Its exceptionally pretty and really … Continue reading TALLINN | DAY 4 | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

RIGA | DAY 1 | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

Apologies for the radio silence but its been a bit of a crazy month. I went home to see my folks (and dog), then jumped on a plane to Riga, where Hamilton and I started a road trip around Estonia, before returning to Latvia. Following on from that, I flew back to London and within … Continue reading RIGA | DAY 1 | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

TATE MODERN | WEEKEND WANDERING

I've been to the Tate Modern a bunch of times. Once, I even had the joy of almost getting stuck in a stairwell there - it was 5 minutes before closing time. The lifts were super busy. We decided to walk down around 14 flights of stairs and when we got to the bottom, the … Continue reading TATE MODERN | WEEKEND WANDERING

LOVE, ART, FASHION (AND THAT WAS JUST THE HOTEL) | MONTREAL | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

We left our lovely apartment in Quebec City bright and early (*tears*), and after a fair amount of kerfuffle involving finding our rental car in the car park, a parking inspector and some steep hills, we made it out of the windy streets and back on to the highway as we headed for our next destination... … Continue reading LOVE, ART, FASHION (AND THAT WAS JUST THE HOTEL) | MONTREAL | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

BLUE SKIES, BASEBALL AND THE BEAN | CHICAGO | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

After our beautiful morning of food, glorious food, we were left to our own devices in the Windy City. As per every other stop on our road trip, it was carefully planned for a day of organised fun, fun, fun. Sadly, not every plan comes to fruition in the way you hope... https://www.instagram.com/p/BGCR4SMPgrA/?taken-by=nai_192 We ended the … Continue reading BLUE SKIES, BASEBALL AND THE BEAN | CHICAGO | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

FOAMHENGE | ROADSIDE ADVENTURES | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

Please note that since the time of writing this, Foamhenge has moved location and is now only accessible via Cox Farms in Centreville. In between Shenandoah and Great Smokies National Park is a magical place, built on top of a hill, behind the trees is... Foamhenge. And yes, it is what you think it is; … Continue reading FOAMHENGE | ROADSIDE ADVENTURES | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

SNOW, SPACE AND SUBWAYS IN DC | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

Today was our first in lovely Washington DC, and I'm pleased to say we managed a lot!  We started with a bike tour that was intended as a way to see the famous cherry blossoms, but sadly they'd all gone so it was just a general tour (they normally arrive on the 4th and are … Continue reading SNOW, SPACE AND SUBWAYS IN DC | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

THE ART DISTRICT | MUNICH

I still can’t believe quite how much we managed to fit into our short time in Munich, which was in early December 2015; visiting (closed) palaces, the science and technology museum, Christmas markets, beer halls and more. Amazingly, including this one, there are two posts to go just on the subject of what we did! … Continue reading THE ART DISTRICT | MUNICH

CADILLAC RANCH | AMARILLO | MUST VISIT

In the summer of 2013, whilst road tripping America, we pulled off of Route 66 and stopped to visit the world famous 'Cadillac Ranch'. An art installation (literally) consisting of 6 Cadillacs buried into the Texan dirt.  They've moved since their initial burials, and been vandalised and spray painted over and over, and are a … Continue reading CADILLAC RANCH | AMARILLO | MUST VISIT

END OF THE ROAD | EDINBURGH | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP

Our two final nights were spent in the unique and charming city of Edinburgh.    I'd always wanted to go and in all honesty had no idea how to go about planning our time there. The rest of our road trip in Scotland was mostly spent in rural areas, so I knew a city would … Continue reading END OF THE ROAD | EDINBURGH | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP
