Stories of adventure #42

The 14th Feb. The day all about love! Now, traditionally it is all about showing love to your partner, but for me, I do not have one, so I am going to tell the other three loves of my life, which are year-round, day in, day out…

Travel

I can’t express my love for travel. Being able to experience and learn from different cultures is just such an amazing feeling. I am extremely lucky to have travelled where I have been and how often I have been away. From one side of the world in USA to the other side in Australia and many places in between, I have had so many brilliant experiences. The fact that you wander aimlessly around streets you have never seen before, eating food you never thought existed and meeting people from all over the world, these are a few of the things I love about travelling.

Fitness

I know this is a bit lame to put, basically exercise as one of my life’s love but I can’t genuinely imagine my day to day life without it (lol). I like to see what my body can do, whether that is seeing how much weight I can lift at the gym or seeing what weird stretches I can get into at yoga or whether I can hike to the top of that peak, I am there, loving it. I am not the type of person to spend hours at the gym, I only go for an hour a day but most days of the week. Not only is it good for my body (I defo have a big booty to show for it) but for my mind, it is also amazing.

Family

The simple 5 (and the dogs). I would not be anywhere without them! We are all on the count down to the ‘booze cruise’ in May 2019 for our holiday together. These simpletons do not need many words to show my love for them.

But I have so many more loves… shopping, cooking, food, drink, reading, learning, movies – the list is endless.

Luxury Amsterdam Airbnb

Luxury Amsterdam Airbnb

For mine and Jess’s trip to Amsterdam we decided not to stay in a hotel but an Airbnb. I had stayed in several Airbnb’s before and I personally have had a great experience and all houses I have stayed in have been amazing. And this gem was no different.

Where did I eat and drink in Amsterdam?

Where did I eat and drink in Amsterdam?

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!

Blogmas Day 6: Christmas Shopping in London

Blogmas Day 6: Christmas Shopping in London

I love London and at Christmas, I love it even more if that is possible because of all the decorations and the atmosphere that London itself has around this time of year. I must say my favorite places to visit at Christmas is Selfridges and Carnaby street they just have the best decorations.

Throughout December Selfridges has tons of stuff going on to celebrate the time of year. Everything from Santa in the store, Christmas choir, and DJs, a party parade, breakfast with Santa and they have a whole floor dedicated to Christmas where you can even buy personalised Christmas crackers!! Only at Selfridges!
