Out and About: Whitstable, Kent

I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to get to Whitstable. I mean it’s in the neighbouring county to where I grew up so it’s not a hard place to get to. And yet it’s taken me 30+ years. But I’ve been now, and it was an excellent trip. It reminds me a… Read more »

Out and About: Travel Plans

When I look back at my trips in 2015 I can say with 100% certainty that it was a good year of travel. There was Portugal and France (Paris and Pau) but mainly 2015 was all about the UK, with trips to the Peak District, the Kent coast, the Midlands and exploring London so much more. While… Read more »

Out and About: East Sussex

Last weekend saw a road trip to East Sussex. Question: is it a road trip if it’s only 80 minutes in the car? Who knows, but I’m calling it one. Anyway, a road trip it was, to East Sussex for a relaxed weekend away with 2 sisters, 1 sister’s boyfriend and a puppy. It’s become… Read more »

Out and About: Betty’s Harrogate

Afternoon Tea. Oh how I love you! Let me count the ways; scones & clotted cream, fancy cakes that a normal human would never be able to make, triangle sandwiches with fillings that would be boring anywhere else, the best china and oodles and snoodles of cups of tea. How blissful. Us Brits sure do know… Read more »

Out and About: Draughts

London is full of weird and wonderful cafes and restaurants. From the cereal cafe where you sit on beds, to the owl cafe, with actual real live owls. While I haven’t visited any of the really extreme places like these I did visit Draughts recently. What is Draughts I hear you asking?  Well it’s a… Read more »

Out and About: Dorset Days

I spent a lot of my childhood in Dorset. Dorset is where my Dad grew up and where my Grandparents lived for all of my childhood years. I have so many fond memories of days and weeks spent visiting my grandparents and exploring their county. The lazy walks around Wimborne Market, the kitkats at the… Read more »
