A FESTIVE WEEKEND IN QUEBEC CITY

On a bit of a whim, Hamilton and I recently booked a trip to Quebec City during Air Canada's flight sale. It was just for the weekend (flying out Saturday morning and leaving Sunday evening) and we were super excited for the trip to get us into the festive mood. It's an absolutely stunning place … Continue reading A FESTIVE WEEKEND IN QUEBEC CITY

A Casa Loma Christmas

Last weekend, Hamilton and I visited a pretty popular tourist attraction here in Toronto, which for some reason (that I can currently see) doesn't even make the top 30 list on Trip Advisor... Casa Loma. A wealthy man named Pellatt commissioned Casa Loma, which is a huge, historic house museum, built between 1911 and 1914. He … Continue reading A Casa Loma Christmas

A WEEKEND IN MUNICH

Over the past month we've been posting about our Christmas Trip to Munich; something we highly recommend everyone experiences! We've written in detail on our experiences whilst we were there already, but I thought it might be helpful to give you a mini overview of everything else - where we stayed, how we got about, … Continue reading A WEEKEND IN MUNICH

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

NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM’S ICE RINK | LONDON

Not long ago I filmed at the Natural History Museum ice rink, and adjoining alpine bar for work. And it was beaut. Yes, it's a bit overpriced and crowded, but it's Christmas in London - where isn't? Now, I'm not actually a big fan of ice skating but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a … Continue reading NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM’S ICE RINK | LONDON

A WEEKEND OF WEIHNACHTEN | MUNICH

Last week, Hamilton and I spent 3 days wrapped up in Christmas spirit; visiting the gorgeous German city of Munich, where we went to markets, wandered through gardens and drank all of the beer. I'd never been to Germany before this trip, but I did have a picture in my mind of what it would be like... (Aka all the … Continue reading A WEEKEND OF WEIHNACHTEN | MUNICH

HARROD’S WINTER TEA | FOOD FRIDAY

"From now on, this is my go to Winter tea. It costs a tenner for a tin this size, so it's not going to be my everyday variety - more like a Christmas treat."

CHRISTMAS, CULTURE AND CAKE | AMSTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING

In December of last year (2014), I took a trip to see my very good friend, Karolina, who lives in Amersfoort. As she is an excellent and incredibly lovely person, she welcomed me into her home and then showed me around. Now, I know Christmas travels aren't always at the front of people's minds as Christmas … Continue reading CHRISTMAS, CULTURE AND CAKE | AMSTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING
