A Day at the Postal Museum

Walking to the Post Office this morning to send a book to a friend, I was reminded of how incredible the postal service is. I can post a letter to someone across the country or even across the world, for the change in your pocket, and they'll receive it a few days later. Earlier this … Continue reading A Day at the Postal Museum

TARTU | DAY 2 | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

AM. DAY TWO. RIGA. We made it to breakfast nice and early ready to get our butts on the road. Firstly though, we had to pick up a car. Otherwise this road trip would have taken a hell of a lot longer. Hamilton was driving because his birthday is before mine, meaning he is slightly … Continue reading TARTU | DAY 2 | BALTIC ROAD TRIP

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

BUT, WE’VE JUST GOT HERE? | BERLIN | WEEKEND WANDERING

I mentioned in last Sunday's post that Naomi and I would be in Berlin this weekend. I wasn't lying. What I didn't imagine, was just how busy my working week would be, meaning that I would have zero time to do proper research or write any posts in the build up. Or that I would … Continue reading BUT, WE’VE JUST GOT HERE? | BERLIN | WEEKEND WANDERING

PLANES, TRAINS AND… GAMEBOYS? | HENRY FORD MUSEUM | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

Boosted by an adequate amount of sleep in our motel beds, we began our journey from Canton to Dearborn with a cup of Bigby’s Tea  in hand and excitement for visiting the museum we’d heard such amazing things about; The Henry Ford Museum.   If you haven’t heard of it, let me correct this right … Continue reading PLANES, TRAINS AND… GAMEBOYS? | HENRY FORD MUSEUM | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

A DOMESTIC ADVENTURE | CHICAGO TO CANTON | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

This by far was the oddest day of our trip.  The four of us woke up in The Whitehall Hotel in Chicago, grabbed brunch from a little place around the corner, Sunny Side Up, where the portions were massive and I had the best chai tea latte I have ever experienced (which is a mean feat). … Continue reading A DOMESTIC ADVENTURE | CHICAGO TO CANTON | 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

SUFFOLK SPECIAL BLEND TEA | FOOD FRIDAY

Last weekend I went to visit a good friend of mine, who lives in Ipswich, Suffolk (East Anglia, England). Whilst there we saw all the sights - a big bridge, the river, the harbour, some statues and the local museum. Out of these, funnily enough, the museum was my favourite. Honestly, I wish this museum … Continue reading SUFFOLK SPECIAL BLEND TEA | FOOD FRIDAY

Culture, Country and Christmas: London Day Out

Sadly, this post is not centred around one countrified christmas museum, or tour, or event or anything. Because if so, I would probably be there every single day. It is about a damn good day though;last Sunday, when Naomi, Hamilton and I took advantage of lots of different things happening at the same time in … Continue reading Culture, Country and Christmas: London Day Out

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
