My 2020

For the past week and a bit my Instagram and Facebook feed has been filled with everyone’s highlights of 2020, and this was the first year when I simply wasn’t ready to look back on 2020. Until now. It’s been a very different year. Most unusual. Most unexpected. It was a difficult year in soooo... Continue Reading →

Brookes Snow Ski Trip 2017

We just got back from the best Ski trip ever at Les Acrs 1800, and I just can't keep my emotions in! I literally was in tears on the last day - leaving the Alps broke my heart! First of all, I would like to say a massive thank you to the Oxford Brookes Snow... Continue Reading →

The proposal

For our eight year anniversary Ben took me to Paris. Eight years together turned into something much more romantic and important to celebrate. We got engaged.

I love ancient history, so I found it surreal being inside. I imagined the Colosseum to be bigger, but thinking back on it, it's not the size that makes... Continue Reading →

Akbar Trastevere @ Rome

Who cares about the tourist guides or Tripadvisor?

Piazza Navona, Pantheon & Spanish steps

Piazza Navona is a beautiful square filled with cafes, street artists and performers.   You can get a caricature done within 5 minutes for 10€ - but Ben wasn't keen.😩I still have a couple of days to convince him - wish me luck! 😃 It felt absolutely amazing sitting down for a drink with live music...
