Sicily: Comiso, Perudo & Poolside Grillin’

After a wonderful lie in we padded down to the main house where Fausta (our host) was busying herself preparing the usual delicious breakfast spread for us.

Sicily: Sunbathing, Scoglitti & Fresh Fish Feastin’

After an incredible night’s sleep in the most peaceful surroundings we awoke to warm, bright sunshine streaming in through the window. I wasted no time getting my swimmers on and making a beeline for the glistening turquoise blue pool.

It’s hard for me to recall certain holidays and trips now without both visualising and smelling the place in mind.

Sake No Hana: High-End Japanese in the Heart of Mayfair

Michael & I were long overdue a dinner with our favourites, Josie & Rory (who we toured Sicily with), and, since they’re as big a fans of Asia as we are, when I spotted the more than reasonable sounding Bookatable star deal for 5 courses and half a bottle of wine for £35pp at Sake No Hana, deciding where to go for our group date didn’t take all that much time.

So this month’s travel link-up topic is “your travel personality”. This has been pretty consistent all my life, as a girl with OCD, organization and tidiness ‘issues’, both planning & experiencing my eventual holiday is a pretty ‘by the book’ process.

The Party: Birthday #2 – At Home with My Favourites

I’m more of a birthday week than a birthday kinda gal; genuinely not because it’s supposed to be about celebrating me, but because I find it a great excuse to make lots of plans filled with all of my favourite people and things.

Taste of London: Summer Fun & Utter Foodie Bliss

If you love food, then Taste of London is an absolute must in your life. This year was the first time that I’ve been (or heard of it), but I can tell you now that it’s already in my diary for next year, and the year after, and the year after…
