Exploring Robin Hoods Bay (Yorkshire) 

We are currently in the gorgeous Yorkshire town of Whitby, it’s been years since we’ve been up in this part of England and we couldn’t wait to show Lochlan some of the beautiful coast line. Yesterday we drove the 5 miles from Whitby to Robin Hoods Bay. This sleepy sea side town in known for its lovely family friendly beaches, …

(REVIEW) Westminster Kitchen Grill House 

During our recent visit to London we spent a day taking in the sights and sounds of the South Bank area.

A little slice of Japan….in Belgium! (Japanese Tuin Hasselt) 

A few weeks ago we visited a gorgeous Japanese Tuin (Flemish word for garden) nestled in the lovely city of Hasselt, around an hours drove from Brussels.  The gardens were gifted to Hasselt by the Japanese city of Itami, to celebrate the two cities becoming sisters cities in 1985.  We visited just in time to see the beautiful cherry blossoms in bloom! …

Why we are going home! 

So a little over twelve weeks ago we made the big move from the UK to Belgium. A country we absolutely fell in love with years ago and one that still pulls on our heart strings!  I haven’t posted in about two weeks largely because the past two weeks have been two of the most stressful, heartbreaking and ultimately soul …

What type of traveller are you? 

I’ve been thinking about our travel habits lately and thought I’d ask the question, what type of traveller are you?  Are you a planner or a last minute traveller? – We are most certainly the latter. In fact we have been known to book and travel on the same day! I am not very patient when it comes to travel. The …

The Perils of Itchy Feet!! 

I’ve just turned 39, one year off the big 4-0!! For at least half of my life I have have led what can only be considered a nomadic lifestyle. Whether moving houses, cities or countries I have always had a burning desire to move on!  My parents emigrated to Australia in 1981 from a small village in the Borders of …

The last few weekends have been very wet indeed.  After pottering about soaking up the sun and the sights for a couple of hours our tummy rumbled so que the decision about where to …
