A Taste of Spring at Browns, Cambridge

Browns is a national chain but the Cambridge restaurant is particularly lovely, thanks to its location just across the road from the Fitzwilliam Museum. A day of museum explorations followed by a truly British afternoon tea or dinner? Yes please! I’ve visited Browns before in both Cambridge and Leeds so when I was invited to […]

The Four Most Popular Tours in Iceland – Should You Bother?

Before I visited Iceland, I hated the idea of tours. Too often when travelling I see hoards of tourists pour out of buses, take over a tourist destination, photograph everything, look at nothing and leave.

Travel Memories: My Worst Journey

I love to travel and I’ve visited plenty of countries, although my ‘to-visit’ list is forever growing. As a result, I’ve experienced a variety of journeys; some good, some bad and some downright terrible. My worst journey was a trip to Germany and today, I thought I’d share the memory!

Postcards from Pompeii

Pompeii has been on my bucket list ever since I can remember. As a child, I loved learning about the Romans and this perfectly preserved city destroyed by Vesuvius captured my imagination. This year, I finally got to visit the place I have read so much about:

Must Visit in Mallorca: Soller

Follow my blog with Bloglovin When I headed to Mallorca with Jet2Holidays, I headed to that infamous party town of Magaluf.
