Castle Combe

The prettiest village in England. What you have to remember is that this is a very, very small town so parking is definitely limited and there tends to be atleast a handful of tourists around. There is parking just up the hill as if you were leaving the town (passing the Market Cross on your…

Cotswolds Experience

A dream of mine since I can remember. Why? Because it is said to be the prettiest in England. I’ve not had the opportunity to do it until this year; 2018. I planned to incorporate my Cotswold experience on my way back to Preston from my trip down to the Isles of Scilly. Again another…

Isles of Scilly

A place not many people know about. A place I know only through my Nanna’s yearly trips away with her best friend. A place that made her beam with joy and happiness. Although Nanna missed her little dog when she travelled away, she did enjoy being on the isles, being “off the grid” and would often talk…

Delicious Distillery

So the distillery was a last minute option.  It had been throwing it down all day and squelchy socks and shoes just aren’t my thing. But my husband Jason really wanted to go here.  So we did. Only a few minutes drive in the car, the building is in a quieter and more secluded area…

St. Augustine

There are many things to see and do in this beautifully historic town, but here is just a short list of what myself and my hubby saw this past weekend.  It is only two hours from Orlando, definitely worth the drive, and we stayed in an Airbnb home that greeted us like we had been…

Billy Goat Trail, MD

Originally my gut told me not to do this.  I am not a morning person, and I’m not known for being a hiker with these short legs of mine. I may add that I was in no way prepared for this either. As a child; my daily routine would be waking at 5am to be…

Love Alexandria

So apart from the fact that Alexandria town is just like a mini London, the heartiness and effortless beauty is what makes this place so quirky and special. Very colonial and reminiscent of England, very much like home. Only a short distance away from DC, this little town is worth visiting if only just to…

Falling into Virginia

“Autumn paints in colors that summer has never seen”. Unknown Autumn really has a place in my heart. I have beautiful memories of fall and the way it makes me feel. There is something so adolescent about fall as it allows you to jump in the leaves and not be ashamed of your age. Well,…

Pantheon & Piazza Navona

On the day we visited Rome it was torrential rain. We thought by going inside the Pantheon we would have a small window to dry off a little. As we entered we walked to the right taking in all of the historical artefacts laying there. Free to enter so pretty crowded and the guards stand…

Fontana di Trevi

Ok so i totally screwed up and I am going to come clean right now. I had no idea I had to throw a coin in and make a wish. What a dummy. Did you visit the fountain and not know this either? Well you’re not alone. If you did happen to make a wish…
