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.

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…

Marbella: Marbella Old Town & a Delicious Seafood Paella

We woke up to sunlight streaming through the windows. An experience far too rare, I eagerly jumped out of bed and ran outside to feel the warmth of the sun on my skin for the first time in what felt like decades.

For our first night on holiday, Michael & I wanted to kick things off right, with a great meal. We strolled along Puerto Banus port, peering into the many eateries dotted along the water’s edge.

New York: Bryant Park, The Peninsula & Buddakan

For my final day in the glorious city of New York, I planned to have a wonderfully relaxing day filled with slow wandering, a spot of shopping, and some healthy munching, before meeting Michael for drinks at The Peninsula rooftop bar and dinner at my all-time favourite NYC restaurant.

If you have good attention to detail or, like me, have hungry eyes, then you might have felt short-changed when reaching the end of my last New York post and not being told more of the earlier promised ‘incredible tapas dinner’. Well, fear not, as this is one foodie filled post!

New York: Wall Street, China Town & Little Italy

Drawing open the curtains to a stunning day, there was only one thing for it – some hardcore tourist time! I managed to tick off three big boxes, visiting Wall Street, Chinatown and Little Italy, before meeting the boys for an incredible tapas dinner.

New York: Times Square & The Mercer Kitchen

I am incredibly lucky to have friends living all over the world. Not because I am ultra cool, but because I attended The Danish Summer School from the ages of 9-16 every summer for 3 weeks, where only kids of Danish heritage, living outside of Denmark, can attend.

New York: GCT, Healthy Juicin’ & Pizza Feastin’

Since I had drowned my camera the afternoon before at Beauty & Essex, my first job of the day was to go and get myself a new one! In the end, I opted for the Olympus Pen E-PL7, and set about playing with my new toy straight away.

New York: Smorgasburg, Beauty & Essex and Le Bain

We pulled open the curtains to blinding sunshine; a welcomed change to the slightly miserable weather that we awoke to the previous morning. Eager to get outside and play, Michael & I got ready in a flash and headed out to our first stop of the day – Smorgasburg food market in Brooklyn.

New York: Serious Shopping & Sublime Sushi at Sushi Nakazawa

Post delicious brunch in Central Park, Michael and I worked off our food comas with a spot of retail therapy. We walked through the park to the start of 5th Avenue, taking in all of the tall, glossy buildings and heaving intersections.

New York: The Freedom Tower & Brunch at Central Park Boathouse

My first day in New York was an epic one. It was great to be reunited with Michael, and to meet all of his work friends for the first time.

Cornwall: A Fancy Dinner & Cornish Country Walk

Mum & I raced around our stunning hotel room getting ready for the evening’s big dinner – it seemed that we’d totally lost track of time with all the bubbles and wine that we’d consumed at the awesome beach party.
