Café Royal

Indulging in afternoon tea is one of my absolute favourite things to do. Whether to celebrate a special occasion, to dedicate an afternoon to a long overdue catch-up with a friend or to treat someone you love just because, sitting in pleasant surroundings consuming tasty morsels for several hours is always a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, don't you think..?

Sand dunes and salty air

Last year, hubby and I decided that we wanted to prioritise seeing a little more of this wonderful world of ours, so we saved and spent the vast majority of our disposable income on travel. We have since visited six destinations across four continents and made a lot of very happy memories along the way. I must emphasise at this point that I am not sharing this in order to boast about our good fortune in any way; we are very aware of and truly grateful for the privilege of being able to afford to travel abroad. The reason for this ~ what is to become a series of travel posts ~ is rather that I can honestly say the experiences we shared during our various trips have made us far richer than the money we spent ever could. Travel really does enrich your life in ways you cannot imagine, and for us, being away from home gives us the time and space to reconnect and enjoy one another's company without the distraction of the petty necessities of everyday life.


Over the coming weeks, I will be blogging about various destinations that we would recommend, starting today with our summer holiday from last year...

What a difference a year makes...

This little blog has lain dormant for almost a year <sigh>, but I am finally trying to commit some time to resurrecting it now that I find myself on maternity leave!
