I have wanted to do a roadtrip from Bilbao to Barcelona for a long time, and at last we did! It was all it promised to be and more.

A Dublin Guide

From the very first time I visited Dublin, I fell a bit in love with it. It was 2008, and Holly Golightly and I decided that we should be in Dublin for St Patrick’s Day to celebrate her father’s Irish heritage and well, Aer Lingus flights were £35 return so it would be just rude not to!

I had been to the gym for the first time… Read more →

American Independence Day Parties!

After all this time, we might still not be pleased that America once declared its independence from the wonderful United Kingdom, however we seem to have come to terms with the fact that it has. And we celebrate this fact. Ok, no we don’t, but at least in London there are enough ex-pats and tourists so that we throw caution… Read more →
