A DAY OUT IN LONDON | WEEKEND WANDERING

I wrote just the other day about an evening adventure my boyfriend and I had in London (going up St Paul's Cathedral / eating at Barbecoa). Well, the local fun did not stop with just that day. Only a week later, we both happened to have the same day off (a Thursday) so decided to … Continue reading A DAY OUT IN LONDON | WEEKEND WANDERING

KAMLOOPS TO VANCOUVER | ROCKY MOUNTAINEER | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

This was very much an exciting day; our last one on the Rocky Mountaineer, to our penultimate destination of the trip (Vancouver) where we were going to my Great Aunt's house for the first time.    We slept fairly well in Kamloops, but I always find that whenever I have to wake up early it hinders me being … Continue reading KAMLOOPS TO VANCOUVER | ROCKY MOUNTAINEER | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

LAKE LOUISE TO KAMLOOPS | ROCKY MOUNTAINEER | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

Part of the reason I had wanted to do a complete cross country journey, was to travel over the Rocky Mountains. What better way to do it, than by train?   https://www.instagram.com/p/BE4ts7SELXl/?taken-by=travelteatv   We woke up bright and early in our hotel, The Lake Louise Inn, got ourselves up and ready, then simply walked outside … Continue reading LAKE LOUISE TO KAMLOOPS | ROCKY MOUNTAINEER | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE? | BERLIN | WEEKEND WANDERING

Day 1 of our trip to Berlin.   After roughly 3 hours sleep, Naomi and I jumped (/slithered slightly unwillingly) out of bed and into plane appropriate clothing, before zipping up our suitcases, calling an Uber and arriving at Victoria station in London ready for a train down to Gatwick Airport in order to catch … Continue reading WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE? | BERLIN | WEEKEND WANDERING

MONTREAL | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

Bonjour!  Happy Thursday everybody; Where are you in the world right now? Personally, I am on my way to Calgary (flying from Montreal airport), ready for a few days in Banff/Lake Louise to hit up the hiking trails (I'm wearing my faithful boots right now!) before getting the train across the Rockies to Vancouver! The last … Continue reading MONTREAL | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

BOND AND BAKERIES | ROTTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING

That's right. Bond. As in, James Bond. I am a huge Bond fan, and take every opportunity to see a spectacle put on in it's favour. My friend Karolina knows this, and found out there was an exhibition on all about designing 007 in Rotterdam, so we got the train over there. It was a temporary … Continue reading BOND AND BAKERIES | ROTTERDAM | WEEKEND WANDERING

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
