True friendship is not being inseparable, its being separated and nothing changes. -Anon These past 2 weeks have been filled with so much that I don’t know where to begin! I guess I should mention that this update doesn’t just include my exploring here in Italy but back home in the UK too. Between London, … More la mia vita italiana: update 2
Hi everyone! Ciao a tutti! Yes, I’m here, I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth…I’m back in Italy and finally back to getting to some sort of blogging schedule.

But, when I … More Why London is growing on me 🇬🇧
Northumberland will always hold a special place in my heart. Spending every summer there growing up, it was really our home from home for around 6 weeks of the year. As we (the kids!) all got older, less interested in going caravanning and busy with our own lives, the less we went – and the … More The beauty that is Northumberland
I’ve always thought Berlin is a bit different from all other European capital cities. To me places like Madrid, London or Vienna are without a doubt more beautiful, they have amazing architecture and are generally more aesthetically pleasing. If you’re looking for a holiday where you can wander old cobbled streets, explore undiscovered nooks and … More Berlin: Hohenschönhausen Memorial
