Things to Do in Vilnius: A Snowy Weekend in the G-spot of Europe

Things to Do in Vilnius: A Snowy Weekend in the G-spot of …

Vilnius
One of my favourite things about this trip was that I didn't do much research, so had no idea what to expect. This meant discovering lots of lovely surprises as we wandered around the snowy streets, and allowed us to experience our own version of Vilnius - although I realise that in a small city you're pretty much guaranteed to do the same things you'd have done if you'd read up on it!

The Man Behind The Curtain: A Review

Leeds
Before I get into this post I have to admit that I don't have many pictures to share. As it was a once in a lifetime kind of meal, I wanted to fully immerse myself in the experience rather than worry about getting the right shot of each of the 14 (yes, 14!!!) courses. Sometimes you just have to enjoy the moment.

What to Expect on the GR20

What to Expect on the GR20

Corsica
I'm going to start this post of with a bold statement: the GR20 is the best hike I've done. I've loved the Spaghetti Tour in the Italian Alps, Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn, Hardrians Wall, the Coast to Coast, the West Highland Way, but the GR20 is the one that really takes my breath away whenever I think about it. It's absolutely not an easy walk, in fact it's the most difficult one I've done, but this post will tell you what to expect on the GR20 with the hope that you give it a go yourself.
A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Caves

A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Caves

Ingleborough
Yorkshire is perfect for a day out, whether you're entertaining the kids, spending time with a partner or having a solo adventure! There is so much beautiful countryside and a million things to do. This weekend Billy and I visited White Scar Cave in Ingleborough, North Yorkshire. My Christmas present to Billy this year was 'a year of fun', which has consisted of me planning a day out/activity/event to do together once a month for the next year. This was January's treat and an attraction that I would highly recommend to anyone.

A Tapas Trail Through the Best Restaurants in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote

Lanzarote
Tapas. Perfect for those who, like me, are indecisive. Great for adventurous eaters who want to try something new but aren't sure if they'll like it. It suits those in search of either a snack or a feast, and it's the ultimate social meal, giving you the opportunity to bond with old and new friends over shared plates. Let me give you some context, before introducing to you the best tapas restaurants in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote.
5 Reasons To Love Leeds Market

5 Reasons To Love Leeds Market

Leeds
Whether I'm at home or travelling, I do my best to support the local economy by shopping with local businesses and eating at independent restaurants. If there's something in it for me too (a good bargain, great quality produce) then I'm even happier! On that note, let me introduce you to my favourite place in Leeds: Leeds Kirkgate Market.
A Day Out in London and Some Fabulous Dim Sum

A Day Out in London and Some Fabulous Dim Sum

London
After spending a few festive days with my family in Buckinghamshire, I took the opportunity to spend the day being a tourist in London on my way back up to Leeds. With so much to see and do in this wonderful (and somewhat overwhelming) city, the hardest part was actually planning the day and, of course, where to have lunch!
The Restaurant You Have To Visit in Budapest

The Restaurant You Have To Visit in Budapest

Budapest
We all know of Budapest as a fun city, full of must-see attractions such as the Fisherman's Bastion and the thermal baths, and with an exciting night life. But what really surprised me in Budapest was the food - from hearty comfort food in the markets to high end restaurant menus, it was all great quality grub. I loved everything I ate during my weekend in Budapest, but there was one particular meal that was unforgettable, at what must be one of the best restaurants in Budapest: KönyvBár.
The Perfect Birthday: Things to Do in Budapest

The Perfect Birthday: Things to Do in Budapest

Budapest
As mine and Billy's birthdays are very close to each other we usually go away somewhere to celebrate both, although I make it very clear that on my actual birthday that day is mine - the rest of the holiday is for both of us. So last year we headed to Budapest, for no reason other than we saw a really good deal on Voyage Privé. Although we booked spontaneously and didn't do much research, we had a fantastic time discovering some of the many things to do in Budapest. This post will show you what we got up to, and give you some ideas of things to do in Budapest.
Where to Find the Best Sushi in Leeds City Centre

Where to Find the Best Sushi in Leeds City Centre

Leeds
I love sushi, I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day and not get sick of it (I think). It's also my go-to hangover food, which a lot of people find odd, but the freshness of the fish, the stodgy rice and the salty soy sauce offer the perfect combination for recovering from having one too many. Here's my guide to finding the best sushi in Leeds.
