The night markets of Mong Kok, Hong Kong

The Hectic Night Markets Of Mong Kok, Hong Kong

Feeling slightly jet-lagged and weary after the 12-hour flight from London to Hong Kong, entering the streets of Mong Kok was an assault on the senses. It was Saturday night and the densely populated area on the western side of Kowloon peninsula in Hong Kong was in full swing. Bright neon lights with Chinese characters […]

City Tripping #69

Back in August last year we booked a trip to Asia. It felt so far away at the time but now it is suddenly here! Of course, I feel woefully underprepared for it, nothing that a bit of last minute packing and research won’t fix though. It will be brilliant although I’m slightly apprehensive about the […]

Sunset in Weligama, Sri Lanka

25 Sensory Experiences In Sri Lanka

Ah Sri Lanka! It’s tropical beaches, lush green tea lands and ancient structures. It has something for everyone and in recent years, with the civil war at an end, has opened its doors far wider to tourism. Visiting during January 2016 with my three-year-old daughter, husband and an 18-week pregnant self, I jotted down some of […]

Italian Food & Wine Holidays With Bookings For You 

Italy and food. The two go hand in hand…like Romeo and Juliet, Venice and gondolas, the Romans and…Rome. You catch my drift. The country’s passion for simple homemade dishes using fresh ingredients makes its cuisine mouth-wateringly good (my post on things to eat in Emilia-Romagna is evidence of that). I was recently treated to a taste […]

Spring is springing with the flowers starting to emerge and the sun breaking out from the clouds. What better time to make some fresh changes? Top of the list is a mini overhaul for the City Tripping linky which I co-host with the lovely Cathy at MummyTravels. After more than a year, and 66 link-ups […]

City Tripping #66

Three months into 2017 and my travel wishlist isn’t shaping up too badly. Last month it was the London Transport Museum and now we’ve ticked the Science Museum off our list. I’m not sure what took us so long but I’m confident we won’t be away too long. I’m linking it up to this week’s City […]
