London Photo Diaries

London Photo Diaries

Now that the Royal Wedding is still hot and happening, I thought it was a good time to finally share my photos from London! You might spot the pretty fall foliage, which gives away that I visited London some months ago now. It was a glorious weekend in October, so we enjoyed nice long walks through South Kensington and the Kensington Gardens. We discovered some lovely breakfast and lunch spots and tried some of the best coffee bars around the Aldgate area. I spend about half a day in Victoria’s Secret trying to discourage my friend from spending …

Tips & Things To Do In Edinburgh

Tips & Things To Do In Edinburgh

At the end of 2016 it became pretty clear that 2017 would be my biggest year so far when it comes to travelling. I had only just returned from my Caribbean cruise adventure and my next three holidays were already booked. The first destination for the new year? SCOTLAND! Edinburgh really stole our hearts the first time we visited. I’m not sure whether it was the charming cityscapes, the equally charming residents or the darn good pub food, it was clear that we’d be coming back even far before we left the first time. It was at our …

Edinburgh: Sightseeing, Edinburgh Castle and Arthurs Seat

Edinburgh: Sightseeing, Edinburgh Castle and Arthurs Seat

Spring break is here and after a mean deadline on Friday I decided to give myself a day off this weekend to work on all the blog post I never got around to posting. First up is the last bit about Edinburgh. Gosh I miss Scotland! I’ve always had it big for the countries overseas, but I never thought I’d fall so hard again after London. Edinburgh now holds a special place in my heart and we will return. But what else could you expect from a city that has everything I live for: friendly people, …

Glasgow By Night: Royal Exchange Square & Caffè Nero

Glasgow By Night: Royal Exchange Square & Caffè Nero

Travelling during the winter months means you have shorter days to enjoy the city you’re exploring. That short days don’t have to be a bad thing was proven by Glasgow, where the Royal Exchange Square turns into a fairy tale-like locale as soon as the sun sinks into the Scottish landscape. And so our cold, windy and rainy day in Glasgow still got its happy and romantic ending. A happy and romantic ending that I would like to share with you! Enjoy!

We’re Going To Go To Glasgow

We’re Going To Go To Glasgow

  Are you ready to discover another city through my lens? Today, I have a little bit of Glasgow for you! During our 5-day trip to Edinburgh, we decided to trade the Scottish national capital for its style capital. We spent about 8 hours wandering around Glasgow trying to fit in as much of our to-see list as we could. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t in our favor and we got rained on a couple of times, but I still managed to get a few nice photos of the day to share with you!       As soon as …

Edinburgh Highlight: Calton Hill

Edinburgh Highlight: Calton Hill

Even though it is the number one tourist spot in Edinburgh, Calton Hill was only the very last thing we did while we were in Scotland. The threatening clouds in the photos are what kept us to wait until the very last day to climb up the hill. We preferred to visit Arthurs Seat and the botanic garden on the better days, but I really didn’t want to leave the city without having enjoyed the amazing views from atop Calton Hill. So, with the possibility to be rained on and literally get blown off the hill, we ventured …
