My family didn’t react well to hearing that I was visiting India, alone. The news hasn’t exactly helped to portray India as a particularly safe place for a single woman to visit, after all. Even along the ‘tourist trail’. Perhaps, especially along the tourist trail. No one could convince me not to go, however. It’s […]
Barcelona. My favourite Spanish city. I’ve always been fascinated by this unique city and its rich Catalan history. While in the south of France, it seemed only natural to return to this wonderful art-hub once more for my next stop.
I’ve been considering this for a while. A move, to nowhere in particular. My passport has been screaming to me from my bookcase for months now, and I’m afraid I couldn’t resist any longer. 11th January 2018. I left London, after two long, at times lovely, often difficult years. I left my beautiful Crouch End […]
Paris, you’ve got me good. Apparently I just can’t stay away. After a few initial hiccups with an overbooked Eurostar train and a reshuffling of seats and reassigning of tickets, I finally arrived in lovely, lovely Paris. The last time I visited, it was dry, but cold and grey, and I wandered the streets with a takeaway […]

Yet, in all these years, I’ve barely seen Germany, besides in transit. It always seems to be a place where I’m merely passing by, whether on an overnight train from Amsterdam to Prague or an […]
Recently I spent a lovely week in Paris. I used to visit my favourite city in the world often, at least every few months, but this time, it’s been about three years since my last visit. I’ve missed it terribly. Paris has always held a special place in my heart, for as long as I […]
I recently spent a week in Madrid with my brother, who has never been abroad before. Having been before, I knew that he would have a great time – great food, beautiful art, friendly people and beautiful architecture! September is such a wonderful time of year to visit, being hot, but not sweltering. You may […]
Our final stop, Vienna. Vienna is the kind of city that looks as though it belongs in a fairytale. All classical Baroque architecture and palaces. As for the museums and galleries… there’s enough to keep me occupied for weeks! I needn’t say more… just look, and admire, and book your flight tickets! Facebook – Instagram
