My only disappointment with our city break to Krakow is that we hadn’t visited sooner. The medieval city had been calling our names for a fair amount of time, so one grey January day I seized the wanderlust zeitgeist and booked in a load of city breaks – including Krakow. Finally! As a result, this is my (entirely subjective) Krakow what to do list.
We visited in May as the weather should be fairly settled, and it’s the beginning shoulder season (compared to July/August when a lot of schools have their summer holidays) which means that tourist season hasn’t begun yet.
Park Lane is a beautiful place to while away an afternoon, especially when a stand filled with Four Seasons Afternoon Tea delicacies has been gently placed before you. Disclosure: we were guests of the Four Seasons Hotel, but all my musings are very much original.
Inspired by the historic halls of the world-famous arcade, Executive Pastry Chef David Oliver has created five bespoke pastries that take you on a sensorial journey, mirroring the visual experience you would have through the jewellery, watch, fragrance, fashion, beauty and housewares boutiques of Burlington Arcade.
I adore going away for a weekend of fun with my friends, and I thought who better to ask for recommendations than some of my favourite bloggers – they all kindly agreed to share their favourite amazing girls weekend destinations!
I’ve been lucky enough to have enjoyed some of these destinations with a few of these ladies – and one day soon I hope to get to the rest of them. Ranging from the UK to continental Europe, there’s something for everyone. amazing girls weekend destinations
Stonehenge: ancient mystical sandstone bastions of Druidic history or just old pile of rocks near a motorway that English Heritage charge to visit – what are your expectations?
My first introduction was 10+ years ago – I’d just moved to the UK and for my first Christmas as an expat as my work was closed for the festive period, so I decided to spend 10 days in exploring Bath and the Wiltshire countryside.
Sometimes in this life, you just need to stand still, take stock and appreciate elegant simplicity with a couple of friends. Our stay at the Laura Ashley Iliffe hotel was just that – an overnight that was beautifully easy. Disclosure: we were guests of Laura Ashley but all cheesily posed photos and musings are very much my own. Where to stay in Coventry
I adore staycations. (Goodness knows I’ve written about many here, and I’m sure I will do so.) where to stay in Coventry
