The Big 3-0. 

I turn 30 next year. This doesn’t scare me too much to be honest- but it is a great excuse to have an amazing party. I spent my 25th and 28th birthday in the Florida Keys with my best friends. We had a few days in Orlando, before heading down to Key Largo for my…

Sunday at the Stanfords Travel Writers Festival.

The Destinations Travel Show was held at Kensington Olympia from the 4th till the 7th of February. The vast hall contained over 550 travel brands for you to peruse at your hearts content. That’s if you weren’t distracted by the plethora of talks, performances and food. The main reason I attended was to go to…

Monday Look Back Week 16.

Good afternoon from a VERY blustery and wet London. Today’s blog contains photography exhibitions about India – and MUCH wanderlust! And this week is going to be super busy, what with the BAFTA awards on Sunday. If I don’t post next Monday it’s because I froze/drowned/got blown away *delete as applicable* Bad Jews opens tonight…

Where Are All The Female Explorers?

Like any person with a love of travel, I don’t get to travel even half as much as I wish I could. Reality. Bills. Being a grown up sucks. I have ideas. Such ideas and plans I wish I could go and carry out, to walk in others footsteps and to create new footsteps for…

Family time in Paris….

As I said in my last post, whenever I am at Kings Cross St Pancras I really just want to hop on the Eurostar and go to Paris.  This year I actually got to do this. My Dad, my brother and I got the train from Norwich early Monday morning ( with no delays unlike…

A Wedding Trip To Nottingham.

Crossing town from Charing Cross to Kings Cross St Pancras sounds like an easy journey, but when you are in a rush lugging a huge suitcase and it’s the school holidays, it seems like a right battle. But battle across town I did, to catch the (delayed and overcrowded) 8.30 train to Nottingham. Going to…

That Bug Called Wanderlust.

These last few weeks (pah – years) I have been suffering from a horrible problem. It’s been on my brain constantly and with it being fairly quiet at work, it’s all I’ve been thinking about. I have a case of chronic wanderlust. With this year’s holiday coming up, I am starting to think about 2016…

An April Day trip to Sheringham.

This last week I have been up in North Norfolk chilling at my parents house. The week has flown by, and tomorrow I head back down to London, and to real life. I spent my last full day with my Mum in the coastal town of Sheringham.

Flashback Friday – Florida Part Two…

We drove down to Key Largo the Looooong way round (thank you very much SatNav!) and stayed 3 days at Ocean Pointe Suites.    Our suite once again came with a full kitchen, of which we only used the kettle, a double and twin en suite rooms and a balcony. The place was almost empty, we…

Throwback Thursday – The Florida Blues Part One…

This time in 2012 the girls and I were getting ready for two weeks in Florida. We started our trip in Orlando and made our way down to Key Largo and ended in Key West.We are planning this trip again in 2015, and so at the moment are all suffering from a mild case of…
