    Amersham

    Some of you may already know that we’ve started a new and exciting way of travelling called Home Exchange. Due to Covid it was impossible to leave the country, so we started swapping our home for other people’s homes in the UK. We’ve stayed in some really cool places – I guess the downside is the cleaning up before and after you leave your home BUT you get to stay in a house versus a hotel room and some of the houses are insane cool – plus it’s free! We have had to look after chickens in one place and got to eat the freshly laid eggs in the morning…

    Edinburgh… Again.

    Oh Edinburgh, you are so wonderful. I think this was my 7th trip. And still I cannot wait to go back again. Every time we go there are so many new discoveries to make and the city is just so beautiful, plus so many of our amazing friends seem to live there which is so convenient! I was 19 the first time I went and loved it so much I nearly applied for Edinburgh University until I realised I would only be living in a Scottish city from September until May and I didn’t think I would be able to cope with all that dark and cold – lol. I…

    Prestatyn – Where to Eat!

    We had brought tons of food with us to make in our little AirBnB, but the guidebook left for us to look through was filled with delicious restaurant options, so instead we splurged and had a fabulous few days! Patagonia Welsh Roots Our first night was the biggest treat – we saw a listing for steak and just turned up. It was delicious, lovely staff, everyone loved Alfie even when he mostly just sang the alphabet on repeat and it was just a really nice evening out. If you don’t know what type of steak you want the staff are really helpful too and we got exactly what we wanted…

    Prestatyn

    Prestatyn is just over an hours drive from Liverpool, so perfect for a quick getaway. We spent four days here and this is what we saw: Rhuddlan castle Well this is definitely where I took the most photos on our holiday – wow! We were the only ones here even though it was a Sunday morning in the summer holidays. It’s only the outer wall of the castle left and we weren’t allowed to go up the stairs to the top of the turrets, but the grounds are lush and Alfie just ran around, playing hide and seek and generally living his best life. Apparently… King Edward I liked his…

    Glasgow – Where to Eat!

    Here’s the post you’ve all been waiting for… We got a few takeaways as it was easier with our toddler to eat in our accommodation, plus we had friends come over and join us so it worked out perfectly. Here’s what we recommend: Maki and Ramen We are obviously obsessed with Japanese food and always give it a try. We were very surprised at how amazing this was – we got a takeaway and put the contents in a bowl, poured the soup stock over the top and it was delicious! I was drooling over my black garlic tonkotsu ramen so Glas-GO-GO-GO get them! An authentic Japanese experience in the…

    Glasgow

    Glasgow? More like Glas- GO GO GO! I haven’t been to Glasgow in twenty years. I have to admit it was the most scary place I’ve ever been to and I’ve been to a lot of scary places… We were followed, threatened and generally it felt unsafe. But recently a whole load of people have been raving about how it’s changed and so we just had to find out what they were on about. And they were right. Our first trip outside of England with our little human Alfie was a great success. He’s 20 months old now and we’ve not been ABEL to get him anywhere because of Covid.…
