The perfect beach is close to home

Cornwall was the best one yet. Well, no I can’t say that, the excitement is too fresh. A long time ago, I started a series about beaches. The search for the best beach in the world.

There is something about Cornwall beaches. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s full of residents rather than tourists. Or that there is no sunbathing because there isn’t enough sun. Or the fact that everyone is playing with full gusto. But a British beach is just a different thing altogether. And I loved it.

Amalfi Dreams

I never wrote about my life-changing trip to the Amalfi Coast! Dear me, I am SO sorry. Sorry for you if you haven’t been to the Amalfi Coast, and sorry again if you didn’t get to experience it vicariously through me! Now seems the perfect time to bring it up again because guess what? You can’t go anywhere. Neither can I. We are all stuck in our respective houses, flats, apartments, shoeboxes, wherever you call home. I don’t know if it’s a particularly healthy thing to do, but many of us are dreaming of our next adventure. I read an article once that said people are actually happiest when they are planning their next holiday, not necessarily when they are on said holiday. So, in this time of quarantine, I hope to give you a bit of happiness and perhaps persuade you towards your next getaway.

The Hampstead Guide

I lived in Hampstead for a year. One glorious year. And I still live in close proximity to the Heath and Hampstead Village so I think it’s finally time for me to publish my thoughts on the food up for offer in Hampstead.

In fact, Hampstead holds some of the most restaurants in London that I would actually return to voluntarily. I’ve written about Hampstead before. How perfect it is in every way. If you find yourself in this magical corner of London, this is my top hit list for food.

Why Denver is a Great (and Weird!) Place to Go

Denver is trending. It was probably always great but only now have people started to take notice. And when I say people, I mean me, because I’m usually a few years behind the trends. I get it now though. The sun is always shining, the mountains are all around you, and there’s a distinct weirdness everywhere you look. Kind of like Austin or Portland. They are so weird that they don’t need to fight for the slogan “Make Denver Weird”. All this made for a great week-long visit to the Mile High City.
