    The Winding Road To Adoption. The Next Steps.

    Remember back in June (wow where has that 6 months gone?) when we broadcasted to the world via the power of the internet that we were starting on the road to adoption? A number of people since then have asked us questions about the process and how’s it going. Well, we have an update! Since mid-April, we have had every aspect of our life put…

    England: Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat, Lake District

    Escaping to the countryside and switching off for the weekend is something we love to do. We find it hard to do, but we love it nonetheless. As we live busy lives, we often find it hard to relax and just do nothing. We personally don’t think its in our natures. However, we have learnt it is vital. No-one can live their life full throttle…

    November 2018 – Monthly Round Up

    Christmas is coming – whoop! And now it is officially December, we can get can truly get into the festive spirit. We are ready for Christmas jumpers, cosy walks, great food, a lot of booze, exchanging gifts and most importantly – spending time with friends and family. We also have a fair amount of travel planned, but more about that later. So, November – how was…

    Montenegro: The Best Things About Budva

    Montenegro has been on our list of places to visit for a very long time. Therefore, we had to incorporate it into the Balkan road trip we took during the summer. The only real decision to make was where to base ourselves. As Montenegro is an up and coming tourist destination there were a few places to choose from. Kotor, Tivat and Budva were all…

    England: Making The Most of a Shopping Trip to Manchester

    Manchester is one of those cities that we will never get tired of visiting. Over the years we have lost count of the times we have spent a night or two in this magnificent and extremely proud city. Our visits have always been for a number of varied reasons – sports events, concerts and gigs, drunken debauchery with friends (probably the least said about those…

    Top 10 European Christmas Markets 2018

    Mr ESLT and I love a Christmas market. In fact, this year we are hitting three – Manchester, Amsterdam and Leuven. For us, nothing screams Christmas more than a bratwurst in a bun and steaming hot mulled wine served in a boot. If it’s winter and there are wooden stalls and Christmas carols playing, you can guarantee we will have either been, it’ll be on our…

    England: 10 Reasons to Visit The Lake District in Winter

    Well-known for its beautiful landscape, dramatic scenery and excellent hiking routes, The Lake District is a pleasure to visit in summer but there are plenty of reasons why a winter trip to the Lakes can be just as enjoyable – if not more so. We actually prefer to visit the Lake District in the winter months and have visited numerous times over the years. In fact,…

    USA: Do You Know the Secrets of Disney World, Florida?

    Yesterday my friend and I talked for hours about Disney World and just how amazing it is and how she cannot wait to deliver the news to her two little boys that they will be returning very soon. Just talking about it filled us both (two 35-year-old women) with giddy delight. It is a place where age really doesn’t matter. In reality, it makes us all…

    Germany: Celebrating 100 Years of Bauhaus

    Many things in life are subjective, especially things that relate to architecture and the arts. What one person may find mind-blowing another may not be moved by at all. If you are a regular reader of our blog, you’ll know that we love architecture and learning about and visiting buildings built in different styles, materials and eras. You’ll also know about our love for Germany and…

    Why Do We Travel? 6 Top Reasons

    There are so many reasons why people travel. Once the travel bug bites, you will want to join the multitude of people, like us, who are always planning their next adventure. We are asked a lot why we travel. It really is a great question and one that there is not one straightforward answer to. In fact, it got us thinking in depth about why…

    Africa: 7 Reasons To Visit South Africa

    Recently I started a thread on Twitter. I asked for people to list their top three dream destinations and then tag three other people to do the same and so on and so on. As I started the thread, I have been included in most, possibly all the responses. There has been well over 100. Some places appeared on numerous lists. One that appeared time…

    USA: Take Me Down To Panama City, Florida

    When people, especially us Brits, think of Florida, we instantly think of the big hitters. You know the ones – theme parks galore or the title of a Will Smith song. However, there are so many more places in the Sunshine State that are just waiting to be explored. Panama City is a prime example. It is a stunning seaside town located on the Gulf…

    Christmas Gift Guide 2018: Travel Essentials Under £15

    Whenever you take a trip there are always some essentials that you have to take with you even if you like to travel as light as possible. Obviously ‘essential’ means something different to everyone, us included. Our travel essentials include practical things like a first aid kit, hand sanitiser gel, compression socks for long journeys and of course the ultra essential item – a travel…

    Christmas Gift Guide 2018: Travel Inspired Homeware

    As avid travellers and travel bloggers, we love travelling the world, learning about different cultures, meeting new people, eating new food and seeing amazing things. However, we love nothing more coming home and surrounding ourselves with creature comforts. The internet is full of articles about quitting your jobs, selling your possessions and travelling full time. That has never appealed to Mr ESLT and I. We love living…

    Christmas Gift Guide 2018: Books To Fuel Your Wanderlust

    Do you love something but simply don’t have time, or in reality don’t make time, for it? For us, it’s reading. Both of us absolutely love submerging ourselves in a good book and transporting ourselves to a different world. However, over the years we have made the excuse that we do not have the time to indulge as often as we’d like to. That was until…

    Christmas Gift Guide 2018: Tech For Travellers

    Christmas is coming! Is it just us or has this year flown by? It only seems like it was last week it was January. As we head towards mid-November, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas presents and what we are going to buy for all our friends and family. We love buying presents and seeing the joy on our loved one’s faces when they rip…

    The Pros And Cons of Solo Travel

    If you had suggested solo travel to me a couple of years ago, I would have either laughed in your face or looked at you like you had suggested the craziest thing in the world. It was something that had never crossed my mind. Seriously, why would I want to travel on my own? However, that was my opinion then, not now. Now I am…

    USA: 5 Of Our Favourite Things In & Around Las Vegas

    Las Vegas is one of those places that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. Luckily for us, we have visited together twice, with Mr ESLT visiting a third time with his friends. There is so much to do, not only in Las Vegas itself but also in the surrounding area. Therefore, I don’t think we would ever tire of visiting. There are so many…

    The Ultimate Packing List For Your Glamping Adventure

    We love glamping. Even though we are not the most outdoorsy people, we do enjoy spending time at one with nature. Especially if it means we can switch the mobiles off and leave the laptop at home. Camping is something we cannot agree on at all. Mr ESLT loves it, whereas I cannot abide it. Even though I am not a girly girl and will…
