10 best day trips from London

London is such an incredible city but sometimes, it’s just nice to get away from the big smoke to explore more of our stunning country. After all, there are so many day trips from London that really showcase how beautiful England is. Like so many other Londoners, owning a car involves so much extra hassle (the biggest one being where to actually park it). This meant we never bought a car in London....

Summer sunshine in Brac Island, Croatia

Our trip to Croatia was the very first international trip we’d taken in months (for obvious reasons) and it did feel a bit surreal to finally be travelling internationally again. The airport was pretty quiet, the lounge the same but somehow our flight was pretty full. Anyway, a few hours after, we landed in sunny Split. The plan was to explore Split but we decided to leave that till the last and head over to the islands nearby instead. (Made more sense than trying to catch a boat from the...

How to visit Brombil Reservoir in Port Talbot & things to do

Port Talbot isn’t famous for many things if we’re being honest. It’s somewhere I have driven past on the M4 for many many years and I’ve never felt the need to stop there, but that all changed when I started to see photos of Brombil Reservoir on Instagram! Brombil Reservoir is a great place to visit on a hot day to cool down in its incredible bright water. The reservoir edge is good for children to play on too making it a great place to take children....

Don’t you just love the power of Instagram when it comes to finding new places to visit? When I asked my followers if they had tips for a day out in Harrogate, a few people mentioned the nearby town of Knaresborough.

Day trip to London & afternoon tea on the River Thames

London is full of unique things to do and did you know you can go for a classic British afternoon tea on the River Thames? It doesn't get more iconic than that! I went out with City Cruises for their Afternoon Tea cruise which I loved. They kept us socially distanced which was needed in August 2020 and I loved the huge bright windows on the boat. After we ate we got to go on top of the boat and see the sights from there! It's super touristy but I loved it! I also walked along the River...
