    A Week Exploring Switzerland by Train

    This post gives an in-depth guide and itinerary to exploring Switzerland by train. I took this trip in June 2017 and had the goal of seeing as much of the country in one week (without being overly rushed) as possible, including mountains and cities. Here you’ll find a map to help you plan a visit to Switzerland and a list of activities to help you narrow down experiences you don’t want to miss!

    Devonshire Club & Hotel Review, London, UK

    Devonshire Club & Hotel Review, London, UK

    In May 2017 I had a weekend break in London for a hen party and wanted a luxurious hotel to suit the occasion. After browsing online I discovered the Devonshire Club & Hotel, based in Devonshire Square near Algate and Liverpool Street tubes. I was drawn to it’s location as it’s in a part of London I love and was central to my weekend plans.

    Afternoon Tea at Julien Plumart, Brighton

    Afternoon Tea at Julien Plumart, Brighton

    Julien Plumart Cafe et Patisserie. 48 Queens Rd, Brighton BN1 3XB. Afternoon tea for four. To celebrate my Mum’s birthday we spent a surprisingly sunny day in Brighton and enjoyed afternoon tea at Julien Plumart on East Street. A bit different to traditional afternoon teas I’ve tried at places like The Grand Brighton Hotel and South Lodge Hotel, this French patisserie was really something special.

    Where To Find London’s Best Street Art

    Where To Find London’s Best Street Art

    I go up to London a lot and if I can, try to see what can be done around the city for free. There’s lot of museums and art galleries, but it can be more of a struggle if you’re looking for free things to do outside. There is the nose tour if you’ve heard of that, where you follow a trail of noses around the capital… not something I’ve done yet!

    Sunrise Breakfast at the Duck & Waffle

    Sunrise Breakfast at the Duck & Waffle

    Duck & Waffle. 110 Bishopsgate (Heron Tower), London EC2N 4AY. Breakfast for two. For our 7th anniversary, I booked us a table for two at the now legendary Duck & Waffle, a luxurious restaurant located on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower in central London. Most people who end up here at the break of dawn have little choice due the waiting list for dinner, but I wanted to make the most of a weekend in London and an early start here seemed perfect.
