Out of everywhere we visited, Bologna was my absolute favourite when it came to the food, so today I'm sharing 5 fab places to eat in Bologna.Read more
As I mentioned in my Esperance Travel Guide, I very much enjoyed staying at Esperance Chalet Village and wanted to give this place a full post to itself because I couldn't recommend it more highly. Set on a beautiful property, just out of town, there are a number of chalets and cabins of varying sizes that can accommodate from 2 to 5 guests. Quiet, private and serene but also only a short drive to town and a great base to explore from.Read more
Today I'm sharing a little Esperance Travel Guide - What to do, where to stay and of course my food and drink recommendations! Tom and I spent 3 days in Esperance for our honeymoon (or "mini-moon" as we're calling it - we have plans for a bigger trip next year!) and had such a fab time. Being a 7.5 hour drive from Perth, it was somewhere that neither of us had been before and it really was lovely to explore a little more of Western Australia, this amazing state we get to call home.Read more
A visit to the Margaret River Bakery is always a must whenever we find ourselves down south, so after deciding spontaneously to take a (very) short trip with my family this weekend, of course we had to stop by!
It's such a cute, quirky little place with mismatched furniture and an eclectic mix of colourful crockery, fun table numbers and of course fabulous food!
While they have a great selection of pies, rolls and yummy sweet treats, their breakfast menu is always my favourite. I was torn between choosing a number of the items - like the Avocado smash (which my mum had and loved), the Canadian pancakes or French Toast, but ultimately settled on their Granola with greek yoghurt and berries, which was not only delicious but also had the added benefit of being particularly photogenic ;)
Their Mango smoothie (that was actually green) was a winner too and my little sister Bella had the breakfast smoothie which she thoroughly enjoyed. My Mum tells me their Kermit Green Smoothie is also a good'un.
Tom had a long black (which was "okay but nothing to write home about" - although do note that Tom's a bit of a coffee snob!) and a pepper steak pie (their pies are always delicious!)
Delicious food, a lovely relaxed atmosphere and getting to spend time with some of my favourite people - a pretty good way to spend a Saturday morning :)
If you've never been before, The Bakery is definitely a place to add to your list (just keep in mind that they're closed on Sundays!)
Hope you're having a great weekend!
Lots of Love
Firstly - Happy New Year! I can't believe this is the first post I'm doing in 2017 - somehow time has run away from me! (I'm always saying that aren't I?)
Tom and I had a lovely start to the year as we were still away on holiday, and we've just been settling back into "real life" over the past week or so.
I was planning for my first post of 2017 to be something about New Years Resolutions/Goals, or at least a bit of a recap of the past year (I always love reflecting on all the highlights), but I haven't quite gotten around to sitting down and really planning that out yet so instead I'm sharing a few of the vlogs I made while we were on our Europe trip! - starting off with Berlin!
There will be plenty of photos and Travel Diary posts to come, but it's going to take me a while to sort through all those photos so I thought I may as well share the videos here on the blog in case anyone happens to be interested!
To be honest I do cringe a little at the thought of people watching these, but I had such a fun time filming and editing them and it's great to be able to watch them back and remember what we got up to and what an awesome trip we had.
I figured I should just suck it up, try not to worry about what anyone thinks and just put these out there! Especially seeing as my word for this year is "Confidence" - this is a good start to putting that into practice!
Off to Berlin
Berlin Walking Tour and Christmas Markets
Mauerpark Flea Market and East Side Gallery
Tiergarten and Christmas Markets at Schloss Charlottenburg
Have you been to Berlin before? I'd love to hear what your favourite places to visit are as Tom and I really enjoyed exploring this beautiful city and would love to go back one day!
One of my absolute highlights (which I didn't actually vlog) was meeting up with a friend that I've made through youtube -
. It was so fun to be able to meet up and connect with someone who has so many similar interests to me and that lives on the other side of the world!
The internet is a pretty amazing thing really!
I was also lucky enough to meet up with the lovely Rachel from
while I was in London too! (So Rachel if you're reading this - thanks so much for taking the time to meet us!) Her travel blog is amazing so you should check it out if you haven't seen it before!
Meeting up with these online friends really reaffirmed to me that I should keep up with this little hobby of mine. I feel like it fell by the wayside a little in 2016 so hopefully I'll be able to put a little more love into the blog this year as it's something I really enjoy!
Hope you're having a great night (or day!)
Thanks as always for stopping by!
Lots of Love
