Travel Link-Up: Home Is Where the Heart Is

So the theme for this month’s travel link-up is home – Have you ever visited a country or place and been so drawn to it that you’ve wanted to move there? Or if you’re an expat, when did the country you live in begin to feel like home? What makes home, home? Is it the people, sights, food?

Lisbon: A Hawaiian Beach Bar, UNMISSABLE Portuguese Restaurant & Flower Gelatos

SO, the moment you’ve all been waiting for has arrived. Time to unveil the most amazing, authentic Portuguese tapas restaurant in all of Lisbon! Taberna da Rua das Flores.

Lisbon: Castles, Cathedrals, Corpus Christi… Views & Wine

Despite the sad weather forecast Abi & I awoke to the most GLORIOUS sunshine and obviously headed straight to our hotel pool to catch some rays whilst our good fortune lasted.

Lisbon: Sunny Squares and Tasty Cows

Abi & I took advantage of the late May bank holiday weekend and squeezed in a fly-by trip to Lisbon to drink, eat and sight-see ourselves silly. Sunning ourselves brown had been high on the agenda too, but unfortunately the weather man had different ideas in mind and so a light ‘blush’ is all we had to show for our time in the southern European city.

Copenhagen: KöD, Where Danes Proved They Can do Cow as Well as Pig

For my final night in the motherland and in the company of three growing men, I could think of no better place for dinner than KöD (which translates as “meat”).

Copenhagen: An Immense Farmer’s Market & My Favourite Lunch Spot

We woke up to glorious sunshine, and decided to nurse our aching heads with a trip to Torvehallerne, which describes itself “not as a supermarket, but as a super market”, which is entirely accurate.

Copenhagen: My Top Picks from my Home City

Copenhagen: My Top Picks from my Home City

Post-brunch (that was really lunch but I wish was brunch) at the epic Mad & Kaffe, Sarah, Caroline, Thomas and I decided to make the most of the gorgeous day and stroll around our favourite parts of the city.

Copenhagen: Insta-Sensations Brunchin’ at Mad & Kaffe

A couple of weeks ago I flew back to the motherland for a long weekend to visit some of my favourite Danes, namely those that I went to summer school with. Since the standard reaction when I tell someone that I went to “summer school” is generally pity and an assumption that my parents wanted to punish me, let me start by assuring you that you needn’t feel sorry for me.

Travel Link-Up: Scent-Sational Scents

I find smell to be the most fascinating of our senses, with people seemingly able to have completely different sensitivities and reactions to the same scents. Scent is also such a powerful and evocative memory trigger; I find a certain smell can transport you to a different time and place entirely. It’s hard for me to recall certain holidays and trips now without both visualising and smelling the place in mind.

Travel Link-Up: My Greatest Adventure

I am honoured to co-host this month’s travel link-up with the fabulous topic of ‘your greatest adventure’. Since I have already talked about my incredible experience travelling Central America, the U.S. and Asia last year, which was without a doubt one of the greatest & best adventures of my life, I thought I’d instead tell you about a not-so-distant-future adventure that I’m super excited about. I’m moving to Hong Kong.

Travel Link-Up: Love is in the Air for Denmark

So February has arrived and it’s officially that time of the year; the shops are overflowing with red roses, oversized cards, heart-shaped everything, chocolate selection boxes and those super soft grey teddy bears bearing wonderfully cringeworthy slogans. It’s the month of lurrrve. With that in mind, this month’s travel link-up topic is about what you adore, so I thought I’d write a post on Denmark.

Cologne: The Christmas Markets, Part 2.

Sunday wasn’t quite as glorious as the day before, but with finite time to spend exploring before our flight home, we got out & about and didn’t let the occasional drizzle spoil our day. After all, there was much to be seen and food to be devoured.

Cologne: The Christmas Markets, Part 1.

I’ve decided that there is such a thing as Christmas crack, and I am high all of December on it. Throw in a trip to the Cologne Christmas markets and I am nigh an overdose. Just to be clear, there are seven, SEVEN Christmas markets for you to completely lose your sh*t in.

Cologne: The Journey From Hell, Beerhouses & Wiener Schnitzels

My Cologne posts are ever so slightly delayed with the festive season now being over BUT, on the other hand, ‘tis the time to start planning for the next one, during which I highly recommend you put aside a weekend for a cheeky trip to the world’s biggest & best Christmas markets in Europe.

The Sisterhood of World Bloggers: Passing on the Baton

I must admit that when I started Andrea’s Passions a little over a year ago I never would have imagined the incredible community that I was unknowingly becoming a part of. Meeting surprisingly like-minded people and making actual friends through blogging has been by far the biggest highlight and most rewarding aspect for me.

Travel Link-Up: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

(…Except June, when it’s my birthday.) With this month’s travel link-up topic being your feelings towards the festive season, I thought it only right I spread some Christmas cheer and shout my love for Christmas for all to hear.

The Three Peaks Challenge: To the Top of Scotland, England & Wales, in Less than a Day

For those who don’t know, the Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales, in less than 24 hours.

Marbella: Nikki Beach Club Champagne Celebrations

Having strayed slightly off track the night before, the alarm springing to life at 9am wasn’t the most pleasant of awakenings. But we rallied, and dragged our sorry states out of bed, as we had a hot date with Nikki Beach Club to attend.

Marbella: Let the Games Begin, the Weekend Has (Almost) Arrived!

Thursday marked the end of our couple’s retreat and the arrival of our two close friends, Abi & Will, for some fun in the sun.

Marbella: The Freshest Fish Enjoyed Under the Fullest Moon

Somehow, a weekday in Spain is just so much better than a weekday back home. It may have something to do with the al fresco dining, fresh fish, smells of the sea, warmth of the sun, wine with every meal and ice-cream extravaganzas, but that’s just guessing…
