    A Fantastic Weekend in Beautiful Stockholm

    Scandinavia has always been somewhere we have wanted to explore more but to be honest, having visited Copenhagen and Riga in the height of winter, I’ve discovered I’m not a huge fan of city breaks in the freezing cold. Stockholm seemed like the perfect place to explore when we were looking for somewhere to go in autumn, still cold (but definitely bearable) and you get the added bonus of those gorgeous autumn colours; golds, oranges and yellows setting the town ablaze.

    The Ultimate Family Holiday in Beautiful Bucharest

    We had wanted to visit Bucharest for a while after reading about the city online and decided the summer would be the perfect time to go. Bucharest, and Romania in general, don’t seem to be at the top of many people’s travel lists, with some people thinking we were pronouncing Budapest wrong when we told them where we were going! This trip was slightly different for us because we travelled with family who have young children - another first for us! It was really fun seeing a city through the eyes of the kids and actually made us realise how easy travelling with children can be.

    The Ultimate Way to Spend Christmas in London

    Christmas is such a magical time, full of cheer, festivities and sparkle. I often enjoy the run up to Christmas more than the day itself – there is always so many fun things to do to add a bit of magic to your day! Over the last couple of years we’ve tried to visit some different countries around the festive period to experience new traditions. It’s often easy to forget the wonderful things that are available on your very own doorstep. London certainly is an incredible city and at Christmas time it becomes that little bit more special.

    As the summer in Europe passes and the nights start drawing in again, this is the time of year when we always begin planning our next set of adventures! This summer saw us celebrate a family wedding in the beautiful wine region of the Loire Valley in France and also celebrate Alex reaching his 30th country landmark on our wedding anniversary in Bucharest!

    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…
