The Lakes and Scotland

It’s been an age since I posted on this blog. I’ve been building a new one – to be revealed soon – so that’s been keeping me more than busy. I’ve also been super busy with general work stuff so my poor blog has had to take a back seat. I’ve just got back from a … Continue reading

Here’s just a few of our holiday snaps. Feast at our house-swap home in Sydney We’re going … Continue reading

Story Hotel Stockholm

Last weekend was the first child free weekend my husband and I have had in what feels like 10 years (it’s only been 4!) We went to a picture postcard wedding in By Kyrkby, and for our final night we stayed at the Story Hotel in Stockholm. Located in the Östermalm area it’s in a great location surrounded by cool shops, … Continue reading

Long weekend in Wiltshire

Last weekend we swapped our home in East London, through Intervac, with a lovely family from Wilton, Wiltshire. I’d never heard of Wilton before but it’s a lovely town right by Salisbury and close enough to the coast for a day trip. We were only there for 3 nights but we packed so much in, it … Continue reading

Bella Sardinia

This was our second swap (the last being Reykjavik) Fantastic way to travel especially if you have children. I celebrated a rather large birthday while we were there, which was made just that little bit easier in the sunshine. We … Continue reading
