Chances are you’re so deeply in love that where and how it happens won’t matter because you’ll both be so excited to embark on the next stage of your life together.

    8 Delicious Gluten Free Restaurants in London

    Eating out is one of my favourite things to do, especially on holiday when you can try the native cuisine and eat as the locals do. Since being diagnosed with coeliac disease, eating out has required a bit more forward planning – no more simply rocking up to meet friends with the question: ‘what do you fancy?’. In this day and age most restaurants cater superbly for allergies with many restaurants having a dedicated menu. Before we go on holiday, I always look for suitable restaurants to have as a back-up and save us having to hunt high and low whilst hungry! To help with your travels to London, we’ve…

    5 Easy Ways to Save Money on Holiday and Still Have a Great Time

    There are so many reasons why life may get in the way of your globe-trotting dreams. The pennies can quickly add up when going on holiday and if you’re looking to make a big purchase like a house, or are planning a wedding the first things that often get axed are those luxuries including your holidays. It might not even be a big purchase that prevents you from getting your bags packed and jumping on a plane; you may be a student, too swamped at work or even a busy parent. Whatever the reason may be, it’s often the price tag that prevents you from clicking on the book button.…

    We absolutely love going on holiday; exploring new cultures, tasting delicious food and meeting the local people. However, getting to a far-flung destination is definitely not something I look forward to! Let’s face it, travelling in anything other than economy is generally not an option for most people, certainly not for us. Although we do cheekily ask for an upgrade, we have never been successful so to the back of the plane we head. There have been some long-haul flights which have been ‘enjoyable’, but in general the flight isn’t something I look forward to.
