If you are forever looking for pretty cafes around the world you have probably no doubt seen this gem! Especially their unicorn smoothie bowls. Located amongst some very cool independent cafes and boutique shops on 9 Streets, Pluk serves up not only healthy but delicious food.
Amsterdam is a foodies heaven! I think everywhere I looked there was yummy food from chips covered in sauces, waffles coated in chocolate, to big ice cream cones. But also nestled away there are healthier cafes and amazing coffee shops (and I mean coffee shops that sell coffee beans). I had seen some places online and had kept them in mind when on my little city break and I loved each and every one of the places we went too. Even my three euro pizza slice was INCREDIBLE!
Warning: This post may make you extremely hungry… Like I am now writing it!
I entered a bloggers paradise here at Peggy Porschen Cakes! And there was even a blogger perched on the steps under the beautiful doorway with her professional photographer snapping away.
This explosion of pink against the dark London road is an instant uplift especially on the wet cloudy day like ours! You can always rely on the English weather not to let you down ha ha.
If you have not seen my previous blog posts or my vlogs online you will not know I love love love a Christmas market!! They are the ultimate festive day and I am all for the festive feels. So I thought why not put together a list of the top 10 Christmas markets that I have either been too or are on my Christmas market bucket list!
Here it goes!
My mum and dad are big big fans of the superbikes and follow them around England to watch. So, the weekend just gone was Cadwell Park, just outside of Lincoln. And with nothing for me to do, my mum suggested going with them to camp and go to Lincoln on Saturday, but this did mean enduring the motorbikes all day Sunday, which I agreed could be bearable. So, yes I said and on Friday we were off to Cadwell!
We were honestly so unlucky with the traffic on the way there and a journey which was supposed to take just over 2 hours took us almost 4!! I am rubbish at journeys but I think I did quite well and only asked ‘are we there yet’ twice! We even had thunderstorms and torrential rain throughout the journey which was making us worried about camping that night. But we arrived at a dry campsite and quickly put the tent up and had dinner before heading to bed.
So, myself and my mum had the 10th August free for a long time and we knew that we would spend the day in London but doing what we was not sure? We had many plans from visiting Alexander Palace or Hampton Court Palace, but both being booked up we decided what about a musical? Looking online a few weeks before, it was hard to find two tickets that were not incredibly expensive, until we saw Mamma Mia! My mum had seen it before but she said she saw it in 2000 so 17 years ago!! And I had never seen it so we both thought yes lets go! I had watched the film at the weekend and I was singing a long and getting super excited. If you have not seen it I would 100% recommend both the film and the musical if you have the chance!!
Waking up at 4 am with my eyes half shut to get ready was a challenge, but was made easier by the thought that TODAY WE WAS GOING ON HOLIDAY! I think the most exciting part of going away is getting up at an ungodly hour to head to the airport! I hate it when you have to wait around all day, so I was more than happy to jump in our taxi at 5 am to leave for Stanstead airport!
