Dublin Sunday

We woke up feeling a little less perky than we had done the morning before but luckily the weather was on our side, meaning an alfresco brunch was on the cards. Also just around the corner from our hotel was L’Gueuleton, the quaintest little French restaurant. We grabbed a table outside and immediately ordered pots […]

Dublin Part 1

My oldest friend and I have a tradition. Every year for her birthday we go and do something for our birthdays rather than buying each other presents. Over the years this has ranged from a trip to the SAW maze (utterly terrifying) to Sister Act with a live gospel choir (distinctly less so). A couple […]

España

After an incredible ten days in the Bahamas, watching two of my great friends get married, I landed back in London to torrential rain and was forced to swap my sundress for a massive jumper pretty sharpish. As you can probably imagine, this didn’t make me jump for joy. So when my friend Sophie asked […]

Tandoor Chop House

Tucked down an unassuming street near Charing Cross station lies Tandoor Chop HouseDark, cosy and inviting, it’s a great place for an evening with the girls now that autumn’s drawing in and the nights of drinks on a terrace are coming to an end. Plus it’s Indian food, which is always a win in my […]

Savelletri

After a few days gallivanting around it was time for a slight change of pace. A little bit of time to lie around and do nothing other than waffle at each other and drink cocktails.  We checked into Masseria San Martino, where I promptly jumped into the pool whilst H busied himself sorting out our […]

La Peschiera

From the first second I stepped out of the car I fell in love with La Peschiera. Seriously though, when it looks like that, how could I not? A hotel and restaurant just outside of Monopoli, it’s truly breathtaking. The restaurant is built on a platform out over the water and is pretty much my […]

Grotto Palazzese and Alberobello

I almost didn’t include Grotto Palazzese as honestly, the food left a lot to be desired. The worst we had in Puglia and the most expensive by a country mile. There are few worst food crimes than taking great ingredients and over complicating them until you’re not quite sure what’s just happened on your plate. […]

Olive Oil Farm

Seeing as we were in Puglia, home to endless olive groves, we decided it was time to pay one a proper visit. We stopped in Masseria Brancati, just outside of Ostuni for a tour and a tasting and were lucky enough to have the place pretty much to ourselves.  When even the car park has stunners […]

Ostuni

Called Ostuni Bianchi because of its sparkling whiteness, Ostuni is perched atop a hill with the most amazing views. We were starving when we arrived so stopped for a quick lunch, and a bottle of wine of course, we were on holiday after all.  Before darting off to explore the ancient city. It was my […]

Lecce

After a brief 2 year hiatus I thought it was about time I hopped back into this whole blogging malarkey. Partly because I missed it and partly because I think places like Puglia need to be shared. I say this now although I’m sure in a few years, when everyone has discovered the delights of […]
