LONDON CALLING

Can you believe I’ve never been to our capital city? From Paris to Berlin, Krakow to Bratislava, Vienna to Amsterdam, Prague to Rome, Copenhagen to Munich… never London. Say what? Usually that admission causes raised eyebrows and rightly so. When asked, I’d always say, ‘It’s so expensive!’ or ‘I want to try a different culture,’ […] Read more…

Berlin Through the Eye of a Lense :: Instagram Round Up

This really is my final Berlin post, well, until the next visit. It’s unusual for me to post an Instagram roundup. The main reason? I just don’t think my daily life is exciting enough to warrant a weekly post. That said, a mere few days in Berlin is more than enough time to burn up […] Read more…

BERLIN :: Olympiastadion

As this was my fourth time in Berlin, the boy decided that it was time to show me the historical delights of Berlin Olympiastadion. Famed as the home of the 1936 Olympics, the 2006 World Cup and the place where Usain Bolt broke the 100m and 200m world records in 2009, this was somewhere I was […] Read more…

Berlin Day Two :: Urban Exploration of The Abandoned Brewery

With the sweet taste of peanut butter bagels tempting us onto the streets of Berlin, we woke early on Monday to head to Aunt Benny, our favourite coffee bar in Berlin. Discovering it was closed, we headed central to Am Alexanderplatz for the next best thing…a Grillrunner! We chomped our hot dogs whilst deciding what […] Read more…

PHOTOGRAPHY :: DIANAF+ LOMOGRAPHY CAMERA

Sipping on a glass of sparkling wine, I was handed my third present from the large pile beside my feet. I stared in surprise, you see… it was two weeks before my birthday. Tearing open the wrapping paper, I was baffled to find a wide-angled lens, then an instant back and finally a Diana F+ […] Read more…

Berlin Day One :: Thrifting, Brunching & Exploring

For most Berliners it was just another Saturday night, but not for us. For me, it was the night I got to try out Madame Claude and for the boy, the night he was reunited with Burgermeister! Hopping off the s-bahn at Friedrichshain’s Warschauer Strasse, we’d found our apartment within minutes. Bags dropped off, a quick change […] Read more…

What I Wore :: A Night at the Mozart Haus, Vienna.

I’ve never believed in love at first sight, until now. Strolling into Urban Outfitters one weekday afternoon, it was there… waiting for me. I’m talking about this sixties print shift dress. I like to think it had chosen  me. However, like true star-crossed lovers, the hefty £48 price tag was determined to keep us apart. […] Read more…

Bratislava Calling :: Travel Tales Part One

Bratislava. Slovakia’s capital and a place I’d never considered visiting before. However, finding flights for £140 is a very tempting thing. When we did our research, we discovered Austria’s capital, Vienna, was a mere 1 hour train journey away. We booked flights aiming to spend a week in two cities.    A 6.50am flight meant […] Read more…

Bratislava :: In the City

I love a city that feels like a town. For me, Bratislava has the perfect mix of heritage, culture and charm. John and I have been here for two nights and, in the morning, we’re travelling to Vienna. We’ve seen so much in just two days and indulged our cameras to the point of using […] Read more…
