So it’s been a year since mine and Tom’s road trip in California. One whole year! I can’t believe it. Although I wrote a series of blog posts about each individual place, I found it hard to write a summary post as there was just so much to talk about. I’ve started this post numerous times. In fact I have about 8 versions in my drafts! The point is, this trip was amazing and there was just so much I could write, I didn’t know where to start. I still very regularly daydream about all the places we visited. A… View Post

Last week was the first week I had ever taken off work and not had any fixed plans. It was a little weird but exciting not to have any schedules to stick to however, I am a girl that likes a plan. Bank holiday Monday was spent brunching and researching somewhere we hadn’t been in the UK before. South West Wales had been recommended to us so we started researching this area. I couldn’t believe how beautiful the beaches looked and how cute the little coastal towns were. I was sold. Show me white sandy beaches and cosy pubs and… View Post

Last minute trips are the best. There’s nothing better than booking a spontaneous getaway. Last Friday that’s exactly what Tom and I did. Googling away at 9 in the evening, that’s when we decided to book a night in Bath. Somewhere neither of us had been before but is only around 2 hours away from home.

The weather wasn’t the best, but then what did we expect, it’s the UK! It’s… View Post

Besides being on my list of things to do before I am 30, I have wanted to go to Ibiza for a while now. Not only to dance through the night, although there was a fair bit of that, I also wanted to see what else the island had to offer and boy did it have a lot! There is so much more than the partying side to Ibiza. This beautiful Balearic Island has gorgeous shorelines, hilltop views and some stunning secret beaches. The kind that only locals know how to access or can only be reached by boat! I… View Post

Being in Cornwall seems like a lifetime ago now. Since our easter weekend break it’s been a busy few weeks. The house renovation has been in full swing and it has been some of my busiest weeks of the year at work! I’m ready for another break again already. There is nothing better than going away to the beautiful English countryside to escape the stresses of everyday life. As this week comes to an end, I can’t help but look back at our time in St Merryn as a reminder of less stressed times. Staying in St Merryn was the… View Post
