A 2016 Travel Round Up

So my last post on here was back in the beginning of September!! I’ve been a bit busy with my other sewing blog and lots of travelling to update this one so I’ll add the last few months in the year in this 2016 travel round up! January – March I learnt to ski! I…

Valencia and La Tomatina!

Now I have to admit, I’ve been to Valencia before, a fair few years ago, but I have absolutely no recollection of when, where or what happened – and no there wasn’t any drinking involved! For some reason, there was a huge gaping hole in my memory about that holiday to the point I was…

Barcelona – a city/ beach break

So apparently I only post new blogs here after I’ve been on holiday… Not a bad thing I suppose. Let’s just hope I’m able to blog regularly! (Cause that means I’m going on lots of holidays!) Where we stayed: Hotel SOHO – This hotel was in a great location, walkable to lots of attractions and…

48 hours in Seville

What do you do when you’ve got a long bank holiday weekend coming up? Book a last minute city break of course! Seville’s been on my travel list for a little while and I was reminded of that when I caught Richard Ayoade’s Travel Man do 48 hours in Seville! Plus the fact that it’s…

Skiing in Alpbach!

Three months into 2016 and I’m already 2 ski holidays down! Impressive for a beginner, right? So after a first hectic week of beginner lessons in Tignes, France in January, I ended up at a much smaller resort to improve my newfound skills. Alpbach in Austrian Tyrol region is a tiny traditional village (also named…

Fun times at Worthy Farm – Glastonbury Festival ’15

This is a rather delayed post on our (very) long weekend at Glastonbury. It’s taken me this long to get back to normal! Five days camping out at my favourite music festival is one of the most simultaneous exhilarating and exhausting holiday experiences ever. This was our second time at Glastonbury and this time we…

Fabric shopping and vintage shopping in Paris

Whilst in Paris, I made sure to take advantage of the fact we were in one of the most stylish cities in the world and went shopping! Fabric shopping and vintage clothes shopping to be precise.  I’d done some fabric shopping here before and really enjoyed it, though I was a bit intimidated by all…

Paris in pictures

Four days in Paris, France. I stayed in this AirBnB apartment in Montmartre hosted by Benjamin. ( I’ve stayed in two AirBnB places and they’ve both been owned by Bens… Weird).  I travelled by Eurostar at £69pp for the return trip. I ate a lot. Mostly desserts.  I love Paris!

Staycation – Saunton Sands, North Devon

Where we stayed: Saunton Beach Villas, £360 for 4 people + dog for 4 nights (off peak). Where we went: Braunton Burrows, Tintagel Castle, Croyde, Baggy Point, Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury, Stonehenge. Where we ate: Squires, Braunton for fish and chips, The Thatch, Croyde for yummy pub grub. Photos taken on my Fujifilm X100 with the…

One year ago today…

I was catching up on Facebook first thing this morning and found something lovely! They’d created a special pop up on my news feed showing me what I’d posted one year ago today which was this… Had they always done this? It’s definitely new to me! It brings back all sorts of warm fuzzy memories…

New York, New York

A brief visit to New York last November meant crazy shopping (over Thanksgiving and Black Friday) and little time for sightseeing. We enjoyed our first stay using AirBnB and snagged ourselves a small apartment in the Lower East Side. (AirBnB was very easy to use and welcome change from hotels! I’d definitely recommend it!). I…

A few days in Cambodia

I wish someone had told me how bad the roads were in Cambodia before I booked this trip! I’d have definitely chosen to fly instead! We took a public bus from Saigon to Phnom Penh, crossing the border with the bus. That in itself was a bit stressful and a show of how things like…
