Well there we have it, we’re officially in Twixmas 2021. This is the first year I’ve heard the term but I somehow knew exactly what it meant: the period after Christmas and before New Year’s. A time to relax, blur the days and dates and just be. I’ve been chilling in my Christmas loungewear and slippers watching Selling Tampa on Netflix. Loving every minute.

It’s uncertain what January 2022 will bring in terms of more restrictions (or not) so I thought it might be helpful to share a few fun things to do at home that don’t involve binge watching Netflix or napping. Over the past two years I’ve tried a few different meal kits, activities etc in an attempt to make the weekends feel like an actual break before walking over to my chair again to start the week. Hope these suggestions are helpful and let me know what you plan to try or have already tried!

Hello! Travel has been on and off the past few months with restrictions but I’m happy to say I now have some fun travel posts lined up. I posted on my Instagram about this trip last month and snapped a few photos of the rose gold bathtub (below) and lots of people asked where on earth I was. Well, here we are and here are the details.

Did you know the reason for a thick crust in a cornish pasty was so the working miners could hold their meal without contaminating it with their fingers, and that bit would then be thrown away? I always liked the thick crust, but there’s a practical history to the design of a pasty.

Hello! It’s been a while. I suppose the nature of a travel blog means no recent updates due to the current global pandemic! But I really wanted to share something with you, and so it got me thinking – what can we do right now if not a dreamy holiday abroad?

While the time to go is not right now, I want to share my birthday trip to Amsterdam last October. It was a quick 48 hour trip but so enjoyable.

About two hours out of London is the small town of Rye in East Sussex. I only knew of Rye because of the famous Mermaid street (photo above), a cobble street that looks very picturesque. We spent four days in Rye and it was a really nice and relaxing trip.

Hello, it’s been a while! I write to you with a NYC Thanksgiving special. My first NYC blog post was over the Christmas period, and now I’ll share Thanksgiving. View Post

There is so much beauty in the UK and so much I have yet to see. Most of my UK posts are places within two hours outside of London, so a little easier to plan a weekend or long weekend away. But recently I went to Wales and it was stunning.

It’s been a little over a month since I returned from two weeks in Tuscany. The food, weather and company was perfect. I’ve always loved Italian food, and as a vegetarian I also know that there’s enough options for me to indulge in. Between the cappuccinos, vino, pasta and gelato, there really were no bad days.

Now that my OCI (overseas citizenship of India) card has come in, I plan to make many more trips to India. This trip was for a friend’s wedding so while Goa was never really on the cards for me, it seemed like the perfect excuse to visit.

Time Out London recently featured the famous Treepod in Cornwall. I don’t think many people know what it is but it seems to pop up occasionally on social media so people recognize it. I stayed in the Treepod about three summers ago and it was definitely an experience.

I very recently posted about my day trip to Paris as it’s one of my favourite cities to visit. Every time is different, and this time I went with my sister to celebrate her birthday. We visited Paris a few times when we were younger so the tourist bits were all done. The plan was to roam different neighbourhoods, eating and drinking whatever we fancied.
