I booked a weekend in Milan during one of the cheap Ryanair sales, and we were initially due to go in September but pushed it out to the first weekend of December. I had never been to Italy before so was very much looking forward to putting on a good 3 stone over the weekend. … Continue reading Milan
Atlanta was the first stop on our 10 day road trip across the southern states of the US. We flew Delta direct to Atlanta and settled in with some prosecco and the nicest air-plane food I've had before (risotto, Caesar salad and lily O'Brien's).

Up until that point I had only tried Gordon's with a bit of flat tonic so I branded all gin with having the same crap taste. Since then … Continue reading A weekend of Gin in Drogheda
A weekend away in beautiful Krakow!

The flight was a bit rocky, but I was happy when we landed, picked up our new car and started our three hour drive into the Highlands! We headed straight to our hotel and got … Continue reading The Highlands
