Out and About: Deal Castle

Whilst in Kent celebrating turning the big 3-0 we not only enjoyed discovering the glorious Deal cottages, we also had fun exploring Deal castle. Deal Castle is fairly prominent and obvious as you drive into Deal from Dover and is just across the road from the beach and the choppy sea beyond. Now owned and looked after by… Read more »

Out and About : The Top 10 of Deal

Last week Fi and I were in Deal for birthday celebrations with the parents and youngest sister and it was so perfect. I don’t think I’ve been this relaxed for quite some time. While that doesn’t bode well with the start of what I’m sure will be a manic week back at work, it was… Read more »

Crystal Palace Park – Travel Tuesday

Following on from last week’s plans to share more local travel tips today I wanted to talk about another new London discovery. Crystal Palace Park. Before a couple of weeks ago I hadn’t been to Crystal Palace for years, it’s actually where my parents had their first house, but the only Crystal Palace I’ve been to is… Read more »

Out & About: Five Favourites on London’s Southbank

Happy Tuesday lovely people! Here in the UK we’ve just had a bank holiday so it’s especially hard going back to work today. Luckily there’s a Travel Tuesday link up to help us along the way. Let’s be honest, if I can’t go on a world trip then visiting places while sitting at my desk is… Read more »

Out and About: Exploring Chester

Our lovely friends Jo and Dan got married two weeks ago just outside Chester at the beautiful Rowton Hall Hotel. Having never been before it seemed like a genius idea to spend the weekend before the Monday wedding exploring Chester. Let’s be honest I love any excuse to have a mini break with the family! The weekend was jam-packed… Read more »
