The fairytale Ghent tea room of dreams

Before I tell you about the dreaminess of Alice, I should probably point out that there are two branches. Had I known this in advance, I definitely would have done my best to visit both the restaurant and the tearoom. As it stands, I only got the chance to visit the tearoom and somehow spent … Continue reading The fairytale Ghent tea room of dreams

Exploring Belgium: Bruges

I naively thought that getting the Eurostar was similar to getting any other train: that we’d show up about 10 minutes before it left the station and be on our merry way.

I mean, the first situation isn’t that rare for me - once I booked gig tickets for Nottingham instead of Northampton, seemingly thinking … Continue reading Stopping off in Bratislava en route to Budapest

REVIEW: Four days at The Pink Palace, Corfu

As a rule of thumb, unless I absolutely adore a destination I don’t tend to go back there for a few years. I do this because I have limited holiday at work and like to maximise my breaks by exploring new places. The exceptions, of course, seem to be Barcelona, Amsterdam (where I’ve now visited … Continue reading REVIEW: Four days at The Pink Palace, Corfu
