Lake District

After our little getaway to Nice in June, we decided to holiday a bit closer to home last week… We’re not ones for planning too far in advance, so we booked ourselves into Low Wood Bay on Sunday night and set off on Monday morning 🙂 The hotel is in between Ambleside and Windermere (closer to…

A week in Nice, France

Last week we travelled to Nice for the week, I’m not going to write a full post about our time away but I thought it’d be nice to share some photos 🙂 If you know me, you know about my love for France. I studied French at university and have spent 1.5 years living there, I…

Portraits of India

I took a lot of photos of the people I met in Amritsar and Delhi. The people I photographed were so polite and humble. The kind old man with the balloons almost made me cry because he was so happy to hear that I wanted to take his photo. Here they are. I hope you…

The Golden Temple, Amritsar

Hello! I’ve already been back a week and I haven’t had a chance to even look at my blog. I don’t feel festive whatsoever for some reason, perhaps something to do with the 25+ degree weather in Amritsar and Delhi… oh and the fact that I haven’t bought any Christmas presents yet. Back to the main…

The Time I lived in Paris… (Part 1)

Things were very different for me in 2010. I was working in finance (not loving it loads) and we hadn’t started looking for a house to buy, so were renting in South Gosforth. One cold February morning I was asked into a meeting with my manager’s manager… He was really nice but obviously I was…

Half a day in Harrogate

I think I’ve mentioned a few times that we went on some day trips last week as we were both off work and my mother-in-law is visiting from India. On Monday we decided to go to Harrogate and York for the day, with both of our mums! Having not been to either, I was very excited….

Day Trip to Durham

I’ve got this week off work, so does my husband… also, my lovely mother-in-law is visiting from India. What better reason is there for going on some little day trips? I’ll post each trip separately, otherwise this will be at least 10 million pages long. Saturday’s thunderstorm got in the way of our trip to Corbridge,…

A Weekend in Windermere

A month or so ago, Ankush and I went to one of our favourite places for the weekend. The Lake District is only 1.5 hours away from our house so it’s silly we don’t visit more often. As it was the weekend of the Great North Swim, most places were already fully booked but we…

A Weekend in Barcelona

Last weekend I travelled to Barcelona for my best friend’s hen weekend. I won’t go into too much detail about the shenanigans that took place, after all… what happens on a hen weekend in Barcelona STAYS in Barcelona (or so the overused saying goes…ha ha). I travelled with a friend from Newcastle – the other…

It’s Been Four Years

…since I moved to Paris for 6 months. Actually I lived in Neuilly-sur-Seine. One stop out of Paris. I miss it so much (sometimes), but if someone asked me today if I wanted to move & work there for 6 months… I’d say no. (This makes no sense really) This photo was taken outside a pretty…
