Like everything in my life at the moment (in that it all seems a little bit upside down and back to front right now) – I am starting with our last port of call during our Italia trip – to beautiful Bergamo (school started back again Wednesday, and I finally have time to plough through […]
Bergamo’s grand duomo is so intricate and beautiful it obviously takes a lot of cleaning. This spot of holy hoovering really made me laugh in a setting so typically silent… The end of the Easter hols is in sight, I might get some time to write again very soon!!
Not the best quality shot, but a hastily taken one as the guy happened to walk past and look up at the kissing couple on the Art Gallery poster. Made me wonder if it had reminded him of his anniversary or something… Lots of Milan coming up!
In England they say you are never more than 70 miles from the sea – which, if we are speaking in driving terms, means that you are technically never more than an hour from it wherever you are in the country (give or take a traffic jam or two, some incredibly thin and winding English […]
Switzerland is definitely one of those countries that looks exactly as it does in your mind’s eye before you visit, which is quite a rare thing nowadays come to think of it… Vietnam looked nothing like I imagined, Sarajevo looked more like Istanbul than I ever expected, Denmark was much flatter and had more bikes than […]

[…]
We began our few days in London with my brother and sister in law in Kennington, with a visit to the ever brilliant Vauxhall City Farm (I have always been a fan. When you consider that some inner city kids haven’t ever seen a cow, places like this are vital!), followed by a fabulous Portuguese […]
Favourite memories of time in Paris involve mornings meandering the ancient flea markets of St-Ouen or Vanves; or hours spent wandering the Jardin du Luxembourg watching families sailing miniature boats on the lake (probably whilst wondering how long until dinner time. You can’t help but endlessly think of food there can you?). The never ending […]
Once everything Christmas has been packed away for another year, and along with it all the fun and frivolity of the festive season, the lights have been taken down from the outside of the house (probably to the utter joy of the neighbours as I think the switch got rain in it, and they quite […]
