What a dream it would be…

I recently saw some things going around online that voiced what we would do if we could do anything, no restrictions, nothing. And for once it really really got me thinking. What would my life be like if it truly were my oyster. I know you never should let anything hold you back but once you’ve mapped a period in your life that’s quite often the route you have to stick to. You often hear the term ‘But what’s stopping you?’ or ‘Just do it’ but  ...

5 Reasons Why I’d Love to See India | Travel

  My bucket list is absolutely endless with the amount of places I want to travel to. I’ve already managed to tick off quite a few and I’ll be ticking off another three this year. There is one place that I have wanted to go ever since a young teenager that I still haven’t got round to yet and that is India. I think India can be an acquired taste, some people are worried about the hygiene and security and others about the hustle and bustle. As I have got older I have  ...

Touring Italy- Florence | Pisa

Florence is a stunning place to visit. Unlike Rome, it doesn’t have too many ‘attractions’ to visit. By that I mean grand historical sculptures like in Rome. Don’t get me wrong there are plenty of Basilica to go in and see and the cathedral is really something else, however, Florence is more art and paintings and detail. If you read my Touring Italy- Rome post you will get all the tips and tricks for visiting Italy. So I wont bore you with all the details again but here is what we did in  ...

Touring Italy- Rome

I’ve always envied people who have been to Italy. The country is meant to be beautiful and breath-taking, why wouldn’t I be envious. A country of culture, a country of art, a country of history. We have already been to Venice previously, which had been a trip of a lifetime but we craved more. We settled on Rome, Florence and Pisa. Three cities filled to the brim with everything you can imagine. We decided against staying in hotels for a change, we wanted the whole Tuscan experience, so we  ...

Why August saw me have a staycation

August saw me stay very much in kent this year. This is the first in many many years that I have done this. A Staycation isn’t all that bad, especially when bank holiday weekend is 28c! I stayed in my sunny corner of the UK for many reasons but mainly because travelling in august is so expensive. Last year we flew to crete in august. Flights were £1400 for the three of us, yet, the previous year we flew to Crete in October for £60 return each! It blows my mind how travel companies are  ...

Touring London With London Duck Tours

One of the things I vowed to do on my 50 before 30 list (no.48) was to ‘Be a tourist in my own town and go and check out the local history’ and last weekend I did just that. I have never been on a real bus tour of London, never, I mean, I live around the corner- why would I when there are so many other more exotic places to go right? WRONG! There is so much history right on your doorstep, whether you live in central London or the streams of the Cotswolds, History is everywhere  ...

Broadstairs

So at the weekend I took a day trip to Broadstairs, the coastal town near Margate in Kent. This is actually very close to the village where I first lived. Not many of you know my story (maybe Ill tell it one day ) but I have lived in A LOT of houses. But this was the first one the very very first one. I love Broadstairs, the sandy beaches, the chips, the ice creams, the quaint back streets! I love re-living all the memories of my mum taking me when I was little. You simply CANNOT go to  ...
