Ludlow and Shrewsbury

If you ever decide to go to Shropshire one day then Ludlow is an absolute must visit. It is known as a real 'foodie' town and is consequently full of fabulous restaurants, lovely local butchers and fresh delis. If you're a foodie fiend like I am, you'll be in your element. Trust me.

Autumn Walking

As children, both my sister and I were always taken (albeit sometimes dragged)on long walks by our parents. Mum's love of a good 'circular' walk has always been a long-standing joke in our family and whenever our annual 'walking holiday week' was coming up, I used to moan and groan something chronic. 

Now I need to hold my hands up and admit that I just bloomin' love walking. You can't beat it - fresh air, beautiful scenery and time out from our ridiculously busy lives. Time to think, time to contemplate and time to appreciate the world around us. Deep I know, but true nonetheless.

This year we went to Shropshire again, an incredible part of England. We always go away in the Autumn months as the colourful surroundings and burnt orange and yellow leaves can't be beaten. Prepare yourself for photos a plenty.

Bayeux, bistros and bargains.

Nearing the end of our French holiday, we decided to spend some time in the northern city of Bayeux. Although it is mostly recognised for its famous 'tapestry,' we came to realise the city itself has so much more to offer than just that. In fact, I'm ashamed to say that we didn't even go and see the tapestry. Maybe next time eh?

Baguettes, Benodet and beautiful food

At this point on our French holiday we were well and truly settled into the laid back lifestyle. Baguettes and wine were a daily occurrence and lazy lie-ins were on the agenda. The weather was still pretty miserable most days but we still made time for outdoor adventures.
