With last year’s British Summer being a bit of washout, James and I decided we needed some sun and booked a short trip to Barcelona. I had been to Barcelona a few years ago and loved it, whereas it was the first time for James but I knew it was just what we needed. If… Read More Things to do in Barcelona
Five hours: In the grand scheme of things, not a very long time. But a lot can be done in five hours if you apply yourself, and you can get to some pretty interesting places, with Greek islands, parts of the Middle East and Africa, and even Moscow within flying time of the UK.

James and I successfully passed our Marriage interview towards the end of last year, meaning we can now officially get married at Bristol Registry Office. Whoop! We’re doing things a little differently to some in that we’re doing the signing of the papers and the legal stuff a few days before our actual wedding. We… Read More The Bath Pig

I guess it’s because we’re all quite similar people in that we either love food, taking photographs of food or writing about experiences we have eating… Read More Testing out the Olympus Pen E-PL8
It’s that time of year where we lock away our BBQs that have barely been used over the Summer and wonder why we ever bought one in the first place, preparing ourselves for the long Winter. Trying to get into the mindset that there are definitely some things to look forward to over Winter, I’m… Read More The Bunch of Grapes, Bradford on Avon

I love going to pubs. Just outside of Cheltenham there are a great array of country style pubs that I’ve frequented many a time. Since moving to Bristol these trips have dwindled but that’s not to say my love of pubs has. When I heard about a new pint-sized classic pub opening in Clifton, I… Read More Cotham Arms, Bristol
