Fortitude Valley Forever

Fortitude Valley, described by Visit Brisbane as “a contradiction in itself – raw, yet sophisticated. It is where elegance and style meet grungy and offbeat” It’s a fantastic, kinda grubby, little gem about a mile outside of the Brissy CBD and I absolutely adore it! When I first arrived in Australia back in August 2014,… Continue reading Fortitude Valley Forever

Tuesday in Waltham Abbey 

Last Tuesday Kerry and I decided to head to the small town of Waltham Abbey in Essex. It isn’t very far from us, and I have often heard how pretty it is there, but I guess sometimes when things are on your doorstep you don’t always stop and appreciate them. I’m pleased we did, as… Continue reading Tuesday in Waltham Abbey

Falling in Love with the UK

Oh I miss travelling. The packing, the planning, the not really knowing, the freedom, the big wide world! Kerry and I have been back in the UK now for a little over 2 months, and as I have learnt from my nomad days, the 2 month mark is when I begin to get a bit… Continue reading Falling in Love with the UK

Veggie Friendly Options at The Wetherspoons (Ireland)

Kerry and I have been in to Cork City a couple of times since being in Ireland and we have found The Linen Weaver, Corks only branch of Wetherspoons, to be a great, tasty, convenient option for grabbing a quick bite to eat. Everything is clearly marked if it’s plant-based and I have always found… Continue reading Veggie Friendly Options at The Wetherspoons (Ireland)

All’s Well and Good in Midleton

I’ve been hearing a lot about Eat Real’s ‘Hummus Crisps’ lately. A deliciously, crispy snack derived from chickpea flour and flavoured with a variety of herbs and spices. If you are familiar with my work you will know I am a huge chickpea/ hummus addict, so knowing that such a snack existed, that I had… Continue reading All’s Well and Good in Midleton

A Stroll through Midleton

Since arriving in Ireland, just over 3 weeks ago, Kerry and I have been staying in a town called Midleton. Literally meaning ‘middle town’ in English, it sits 10 miles between both Cork City and Youghal. Steeped in rich history Midleton can trace its roots back to the Norman invasion of 1180 and it took… Continue reading A Stroll through Midleton
