    An Alternative City Guide to Birmingham | AD

    The words that come to mind when I think of Birmingham are chocolate, industrial architecture, cats, Ozzy Osbourne and alchemy. Potentially the most random combination that I can conjure, but that can the joy of exploring less touristy destinations. Disclosure: this alternative city guide to Birmingham was commissioned by Hotels.com to showcase booking in at the Birmingham airport hotel, but all random adventures are very much my own (you’ll see).

    Something people say to me all the time is ‘I bet you’ve been everywhere in England… I’ve never really explored that much of the UK and it’s such a shame’, and honestly, I agree. England is such a diverse patchwork of villages, towns and cities – and the history is second to none.

    What to do in Grenada | Adventures on the Caribbean Spice Isle

    Wondering what to do in Grenada? Well, that is between lazing on one of the 45+ beaches and slipping to the nearest bar to try their unique rum punch… Follow me to a magical island, one full of exotic aroma, filled with laughter and the perfect place to adventure. Disclaimer: We were guests of Pure Grenada, the national tourism board, but all enthusing and rum cocktail enjoyment is very much my own.

    What to do in Grenada

    Before you start reading this list of what to do in Grenada, pop on a Soca playlist and grab a bristlin’ coconut to sip on. That’ll start the (e-)liming session off nicely. Then, conjure a little sunshine, a touch of tropical rain, book your comfortable flight and we’re in a very good place indeed.

    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 the 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.
