Lisbon: My guide to my favourite food, wine & activities

  Every time I travel to a place I get lots of requests for a guide to that city/place and so I have decided that I will try my best to create a sort of travellers tip article with a “tash style”. So, just so you know, when I travel, I do very little research…

Lisbon! The Luxurious Beginning

Day 1 of my holiday and I already feel like a brand new woman.  I arrived at my hotel in the evening yesterday, with a long day of travel behind me.  A couple of months earlier, I had decided to spoil myself to a luxury hotel; coerced by the delicious looking breakfast, the extra large…

A Florentine Love Affair

I’m absolutely besotted with Florence.  It’s a little crazy actually. I was there in January and then, actually went there twice this month.  I just find its streets, it restaurants, its views, its people, the light, the colour, the buildings….tantalising, enthralling, breathtaking. Having my heart set on getting back there, when my mum and I…

Whimsical Deia

I have been lucky enough to have spent six months in Palma.  We have been in shipyard mode, which means we have an unusual routine, for yachties, Mon-Fri, 9-5, with weekends off.  Normal for the average human, not so normal for us.  And so, my adventurous side has been tantalized in every way, taking hikes…

Train trip: Bangkok–> Chiang Mai

I can quite comfortably say that we have covered every single mode of transport that Thailand has had to offer.  And this was one of the more interesting, throwing some great people across our paths, zero sleep for me and one very insistent Thai service stew.  I am trying to work out whether I would…

When you have one full day in Bangkok and you are experience Junkies like us, you don’t just sit in your great hotel, with the rooftop swimming pool, or go to a famous restaurant or fabulous bar. Instead, you fit in as much as possible, taking every form of transport possible, forgetting any idea of…

Bucketlist: Ireland

As I sit here in Antibes, at my favourite cafe, listening to music, tapping my leg to the beats and smiling from ear to ear, I have to be grateful once again to my wonderful Uppa.  Apart from being one of the biggest influences on my life and one of the best people I have…

RED BUS TOUR: Cape Town

Gosh, this was fun.  Bryce and I had put it on our to do list very early on in our trip and due to our over zealous to-do-list we were only able to squeeze it in on the second to last day that we were there.  We got a great crew together, met for a…
