    Grenada, the Caribbean Island of Spice [Pronounced Grin-AY-da]

    Words can’t really describe how much I was looking forward to escaping the dreary English winter for the tropical Caribbean island shores of Grenada. I was already fed up of getting caught in the icy rain and shrugging on layers of heavy clothing – and it was only the very start of the coldest season of the year. Disclaimer: We were guests of Pure Grenada, the national tourism board, but all enthusing and rum cocktail enjoyment is very much my own.

    I’d always dreamt of exploring Caribbean – rowing to a teeny island with sparkling sands and palm trees waving over turquoise seas, but before I’d started blogging all those years ago I’d honestly never heard of Grenada.

    Things to do in Dubrovnik | The Relaxation Edit

    How on earth do I describe Dubrovnik in a way that sufficiently does the city justice and doesn’t just boil down to yet another ‘things to do in Dubrovnik’ blog post list? 

    Things to do in Dubrovnik

    When deciding where to go, we took our time researching and consulting friends who had been to the city for longer than just a cruise ship day offloading (a source of many visitors) and when a good friend suggested that if we go to Croatia, that we visit most perfectly preserved medieval cities in the world we fell on her suggestion.

    GOODBYE 2019, HELLO 2020 – A THROWBACK TO THE YEAR THAT WAS.

    First and foremost my blog is a journal. An online journal that has become a treasure box of memories, tips that I hope will be helpful and my online baby which has given me the impetus to learn a plethora of new skills. In that spirit, Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020! This little blog post is a throwback to the year that was.

    Instagram Best Nine 2019 Adventures of a London Kiwi

    2019 has been quite the year work-wise; I’m so thankful to have a collection of fascinating clients, I’ve worked with some really interesting projects and with a national charity who have some incredible stories and work with star-studded collaborators. There have definitely been highs and low lows to the year that I celebrated my second freelance anniversary – and I’m the stronger for it. I’ve also experienced just how wonderful my community are. I get asked a lot if I’m glad that I launched my little business, and I can whole-heartedly say yes.

    Women’s Hand Luggage | The Travel Hack Suitcase | Twelve Month Update

    I absolutely adore my Travel Hack suitcase. After 12 months of rolling around the UK & Europe, I love that it’s still in incredibly good nick, flexible, handy and so very pretty – the perfect piece of women’s hand luggage. (Though Mr Kiwi is happy to be seen in public with it as well, the rose gold zips are quite subtle.) Disclosure: The Travel Hack kindly gifted me the Cabin Max Case (affiliate link*).

    Bloggers cop a lot of flack (and in some cases rightly so) for declaring every new item ‘their favourite xxx ever’ so I wanted to really thoroughly test my Travel Hack Suitcase – and test it I have.

    What To Do In Reims | Champagne, France

    Over a dozen years ago, my Mum and I visited Reims as a day trip from Paris – our first sip of the fabled Champagne region. I can’t tell you how excited I was to visit Reims again as a guest of the Régionale du Tourisme Grand-Est but all thoughts are very much my own.

    What to do in Rheims France

    With train trips as quick as 45 minutes from Paris, Reims (or Rheims as the city is also known) is the perfect gateway to the rest of the Champagne region – and you don’t really need a car to explore the best of the city. As both my lovely friend and I are foodies, our plans consisted mostly of exploring the gastronomic offerings, with the occasional foray into the beautiful cultural history.
