Back, again

Just a quick update. We’re back home, safe and sound. Our last ‘day’ in Athens wasn’t that long, as we had a late start, and an early afternoon flight. So by the time we ducked down to a nearby shop and bought all of their bottles of Greek Loux lemonade that pretty well finished off…

At sea, to see

Well, what a day. I’m not really sure how to describe our experience, it’s been a day filled with polarities and mixed emotions. We were up on time, and after inhaling breakfast made sure we were outside our designated collection point early. That’s about where things went weird. Instead of being collected by the Evermore…

Atop the Acrop.

Rarely do I use the ubiquitous ‘O.M.G.’, but today, is that day. I’d been told that in order to avoid the crowds at the Acropolis (TripAdvisor) entrance, that you need to be there early, when the gates open in fact. This piece of advice was correct, and if you’re reading this and wondering, the first…

Checking into Athens

Yasou! Yes, we’re on the road again, and after being in Paris just the other week, this is travel lark is starting to feel pretty good! Also pretty tiring, not sure how these continually travelling folks keep their energy up! Anyway, we’re back in Greece, Athens specifically, and I have to say, I think this…

London calling… again

Back in London this weekend. We’re between destinations at the moment, and enjoying a mini-break before we head off again. So whilst one of us went to see Hamilton (which by all accounts was amazing and well worth going to see if theatre’s your thing), I went to the British Museum to check out the…

Patisseries and packing

The worst part about leaving Paris, is not being able to bring all the food with us that we just didn’t have time to eat, like a truckload of patisseries! We both LOVE these fancy cakes, choux pastry, macaroons, and cakes that are almost too pretty to eat. Almost. We decided to start our morning…

Monet

I have often been in awe of gardeners, for their patience, the foresight and forethought towards laying out a garden, and for how their imaginations can dream up what a garden will look like when the seeds they plant become fully grown. One of my favourite gardens is that at Monet’s house, or Fondation Claude…

Better times

This morning was a little less exciting, though a touch frantic. In a homage to Harry Potter, we took an Uber from our hotel to the house where Maison de Nicholas Flamel once lived and worked. Having posed for the obligatory photos we then set off on foot to wander the streets, particularly Boulevard de…

Bonjour!

This blog post has been a little delayed, as you may have guessed. We’re staying at the Holiday Inn Elysees in, and the wifi is a little… iffy. We flew in last night, the 22nd, and today’s been a bit full-on since we woke up. I’m going to broach a subject that’s not mentioned a…

Sunny springtime Sunday

Home again, home again, jigedy-jig. Our time in Scarborough has come to an end, for the moment at least, and today we made our way back home. After two earlier mornings, we took the opportunity to have a slower start today, not leaving the hotel until 10. As we were both still feeling quite full…
