In this world of constant social...

Arizona – Sunday Tête-à-Tête

Hello friends, I hope you’ve had a great week and brunch is involved for some easy conversation. I thought I would firstly explain how this new feature came about because I’m not really known for doing videos and these posts aren’t about food or travel exclusively.

Salzburg, Austria

Austria is a small country in the heart of Europe that has seen itself most recently pulled into news stories in the joint kindness of it’s governments to accept refugees running from their war torn countries. It’s an idyllic little piece of country filled with mountains, lakes and so much greenery that it’s almost too...

Reykjavik

My journey to Reykjavik began on Icelandair with an evening flight that allowed the national airline to show off it’s special ‘northern lights’ feature as we flew ever closer to this island nation’s shores and a mixture of local artists played over the airwaves as we boarded and departed. Landing at midnight with a glimmer...

Istanbul

“Once you visit Turkey, you can’t not go back.” Those words were uttered to me and my mother as we awaited for a flight to depart to European shores many many years ago and those words always stuck, they lingered at the back of my mind with each new destination I set out on until...

Prague

Riding the train into the landlocked Czech Republic in the darkness of night, there isn’t much to suggest of what you will see upon rolling into its largest and capital city, Prague, or better known as Praha to the locals. Expecting a winter wonderland, even on the coldest day during my visit there was no...

Manhattan

There is endless to say about New York, more specifically the Manhattan I know and love endlessly. To the world it’s a harsh cold city, but all that stands out when you are there on the concrete streets are the people who look you in the eye and recognize your presence with the nod of...

Philadelphia

Philadelphia is the quiet city that I imagine would make you comfortable enough to never want to leave. Sure when it’s light out there are parts of the city full of tourists lining up around the corner to get a glimpse at the history that was made here at the beginning of a new nation,...

Chicago – Chitown and the Windy City

Chicago rumbles with people and trains that roll over the streets, it rumbles with wind that comes off a lake so large you cannot see land on the other side. It’s a city with an accent not all unlike New York or Boston and it’s soul is the third largest in America. Yes, its Gotham...

Let’s talk about Brooklyn. The last time I was in New York I met and spent a little time with another blogger Crepes of Wrath and she gave me a little advice on where to stay next time I’m in the city and it was over the Hudson. Having been to New York a handful...

Tenby – Wales

Wales is known for having some of the best beaches in the UK, although not exactly great swimming beaches so naturally during my time in this land I had to venture to the coast. Within 3 hours of Cardiff lies a historic and rather idyllic little town that my eye rested on and so I...

Cardiff, Wales

With the journey to Cardiff only being two hours from London by train it really was a seamless connection to the impressively vibrant Welsh capital that I found once I embarked from the train. A Friday evening in Cardiff was alive with bars of people spilling onto the streets enjoying an unwind after a week of work...

The Perils of Long Distance Living

Last year, when I ended up admitted to hospital; I laid in my hospital bed and convinced myself that my brother’s texts and the resulting support via technology was enough to prove that while people may be far away physically, they really are never far emotionally. You can feel a sense of love and support from those...
