Ibiza off the beaten path

We’ve made it. The flight is taking off, and we’re both in it. An achievement, considering we were still at home two hours before take-off, and had a 1h45 car ride to get to Stansted Airport. But Leo’s driving “skills”, and a bit of Ryanair delay allowed us to still make it on time to... Continue Reading →

Windsor Cycling Loop

This Sunday, Leo and I decided to brave the cold and go explore a new part of West London he wasn’t familiar with. We followed a cycling route uploaded on the OS Maps app that took us from Windsor all the way to Ascot following cycle paths in Great Windsor Park. After that, we headed... Continue Reading →

Ugandan roadtrip

Leo and I have been discussing plans for our honeymoon next year, and considering countries such as Mozambique or Zimbabwe. On such a gloomy winter day as this, I couldn’t help myself but reminisce on our April 2016 camping roadtrip to Uganda. At the time, we had wanted to go to Kenya, but due to... Continue Reading →

City escape – Budapest

This november, Leo and I booked an impromptu weekend to Budapest, a city we both wanted to visit. It was our first city break together - yes, I know, but what can I say, we usually tend to head to the beach or the mountains - but we definitely made the most of it. We... Continue Reading →

The Wandle Trail

One Sunday in November, Leo and I decided to go for a short cycle to make the most of a sunny day. We set off from ours and followed the river on the north bank all the way to Wandsworth Bridge. From there, we found the River Wandle, and followed the Wandle Trail along the... Continue Reading →

Cornwall Bump

This year's summer was too packed with adventures (and falls!) to be able to fit in a weekend in Cornwall. Still, I had heard so much about it that we decided to go for a quick weekend getaway there at the start of November. We slept in Bristol on Friday night, and woke up early... Continue Reading →
