My first 1st class experience

There's nothing better than kicking off a long haul journey across the globe with a nice, relaxing massage - eliminating all the stress that comes with travelling. I make sure to take advantage of this complimentary service offered at Cape Town's SLOW Lounge ahead of boarding my flight to Johannesburg. A strategic decision is made... Continue Reading →

A whole new flying experience

I've heard so many great [and not so great but I'll address that in another post] things about Cape Town. So imagine my level of excitement when I was asked to fly here for work. Having never flown anything but economy before, I was super ecstatic to finally experience how the other half fly. Bags... Continue Reading →

Time to reminisce, the two weeks of bliss…

We opted for Oleo Cancun Playa Boutique Resort, located south of the hotel strip on Zona Hotelera – away from the party area. The guests consisted of mainly couples and although family friendly, there were no kids in sight. That said, it’s also not the kind of place you would pick for a stag/bucks or a hen do. Our room was spacious and modern with a breath-taking ocean view.

Hello from the other side!

There's absolutely nothing good about long-haul flights...unless you're living it up in first or business class. For the rest of us mere mortals, it means enduring countless hours of cramped seating in the cattle barn that is economy. I shouldn't complain really, considering my 5'3 stature requires little leg room. But the thought of spending... Continue Reading →

Celebrations continue in Lanzarote

Double the celebrations might I add. Given our wedding anniversary is the week after my birthday, it was a good enough reason to celebrate abroad...as if we needed an excuse for a holiday! Where to go that's a short flight away for guaranteed sunshine in November? Lanzarote! Goodbye gloomy London, we'll see you in about a... Continue Reading →

Boozey Birthday Brunch

Just off Oxford Street, on the first floor of the Radisson Hotel, you’ll find this nicely kitted out tearoom, serving more than standard finger sized sandwiches. For £34pp , you have the freedom to personalise your afternoon tea stand - a la carte style!

DIY update…not so great!

Since putting the ceiling up, we've made some good, albeit slow progress on the living room. We drained the water system to remove the old radiators and connected a new pipe system to line up our new, much sleeker looking radiators. I use the term 'we' very loosely here as Adam did the majority, if... Continue Reading →

Spanish summer escape in September

When Adam first suggested Malaga as a holiday destination, I initially thought 'Brits Abroad' and rejected the idea but his research proved me wrong. Staying in the old town meant we were amongst the locals, within walking distance to the nearby beach, close enough to the vast array of restaurants and added bonus; located where...
