A visit to Bath isn't complete without a tour of the Roman Baths. Full of history and the place that gave the city its name, the Roman Baths are well worth taking the time to tour the complex. Before visiting, I was told the tour would take about an hour and was under the impression… Continue reading Postcards from…Roman Baths
Spontaneity is fun, but hard to fit in when every day seems to be super busy and planned so far in advance. So last week when my boyfriend suggested we head to the British city of Bath two days later, I jumped at the chance. A quick search for an available hotel, a sharp intake… Continue reading Bath | Roman Ruins and Big Baths
The seaside town of Ramsgate is the perfect weekend escape from London. Within minutes of wandering along the boat-filled harbour, the stress of the week melts away and you're ready to just...relax. There's a bit of something for everyone, with a sandy beach, plenty of pubs and restaurants and the seaside staple: amusement arcades! Aside… Continue reading Postcard from…Ramsgate Harbour
My absolute favourite thing to do in London is visit the West End and see one of the world-famous shows that are on offer. Team it up with delicious German food, and it's starting to sound like my kind of night! Grand plans - well, grandish plans - were made to visit Portobello market around… Continue reading A Night In London’s West End

As a fan of sweeping, panoramic views of any city, I've visited my fair… Continue reading Postcards from…The Shard
If there is a better way to see a city than up the highest building soaking up the panoramic views, then I am yet to find it. I took a trip on the London Eye with my family when I was younger, at a time I think it was still called the Millennium Wheel -… Continue reading London | A Flying Visit To The Shard!
Just a stone's throw from London, the impressive estate of Luton Hoo offers a chance to indulge in a spot of luxury. We're talking spa, afternoon tea, fancy dinner, top notch hotel kind of luxury. After sampling afternoon tea at Luton Hoo a couple of months ago, I was back on a sunny Sunday morning to… Continue reading Morning Coffee at Luton Hoo
The light festival has come to London! After trying to find a way to make it to Amsterdam's light festival, I was thrilled to find out that London was hosting it's own light festival. After wanting to see Amsterdam's for so long, I couldn't miss the opportunity to visit one right on my doorstep. So… Continue reading London Lumiere
Just in case I hadn't already mentioned it - I love this church. I've shared the postcards I picked up while there and I wrote about how I ended up being able to see this church. It may not be on the same level of grandeur as Notre Dame, Westminster Abbey and Sagrada Famillia, but… Continue reading Temple Church, London
