Ephesus

One of the reasons we were drawn to Turkey was it’s history. Both self confessed classics geeks, we love a good ruin and handily, this region has one of the best. Just over an hour’s drive from Alaçati lie the ruins of Ephesus so after fuelling up with our usual breakfast feast we headed off. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Rape, Pillage and Plunder

That sounds like a civilised way to spend a Saturday afternoon surely? The other weekend my oldest friend Sarah and I headed for Holborn to enter the world of the Vikings, or at least an exhibition on them at the British Museum. I have to confess to not having the most extensive knowledge of this […]

Berlin’s Saturday Surprise

So, remember how I said we had that crack of dawn flight? Well that didn’t quite go according to plan. Having dragged ourselves out of bed at 4am, checked out and gotten to the airport hiccough free we then boarded the plane and just sat there. And then sat for a bit more, before being […]

Busy busy Berlin bees

After a fair unproductive day on Thursday we needed to get our bums into gear and make the most of Friday, cramming in as much as we could. Our first stop was breakfast at the restaurant Chipps on Jagerstrasse, we needed some fuel to get us going. For me it was tomato, avocado, feta and chilli […]

Stockholm part tva

When I left you yesterday we’d just arrived back at the apartment, cold, wet and in a state of shock at the expense of our taxi ride. Luckily though, it didn’t take much for us to rally and get ready for another late dinner (clearly we’re not the most organised bunch). This time we were […]
