Careys Manor New Forest Review

Imagine a world where ponies run wild right outside your window, a relaxing spa looks out to grass fields and breakfast can be eaten in your slippers and bathrobe. Now stop imagining, because whatever you’ve come up with in your head is nowhere near as good as the real thing...

How to Find Cheap Flights in Europe

While I love London, there’s no denying that one of the greatest parts of living here is having easy access to the rest of Europe. I enjoy a day out to the Tower of London as much as anyone, but we’re within a few hours flight of other amazing cities...

Exploring Morecambe Bay

A few weeks ago, Guy and I went for a week up at Crieff Hydro in Scotland. It’s about an 8 hour drive, which isn’t terrible, but it can be a bit much for one stretch. On the way back, since we left Crieff later in the day, we needed...

5 Must-Do Activities in Oxford

Oh, Oxford. The city where much of Harry Potter was filmed, the home of the oldest university in the world, and one of my favorite places to spend the day. Oxford is in the southeast of England, just about an hour from London. The architecture is classically gorgeous, the food...

I’m Not in Love with the City of Love

I hate Paris. Okay, sorry, let’s back up. What do you think of when you think of Paris? Twinkling lights? Love? Walks along the Seine? Mary Kate and Ashley frolicking through Montmarte in Passport to Paris? (SORRY! I JUST LOVE THEM!) For someone who lives a 2 hour train ride...

Is the London Eye Worth It?

As the most popular tourist attraction in London, the London Eye is impossible to miss as you’re walking along the Thames. It was originally built in 2000 as the “Millennium Wheel,” though the Millennium is almost 20 years behind us now and it’s still slowly rotating over the river, steady...
