Last week, Dom and I visited the Netherlands – home to idyllic windmills, canals, tulip fields and cycling routes. We stayed in Utrecht, a city about a 25 minute train journey away from the capital, Amsterdam. We stayed for a week and managed to cram in lots of things during our time there.

Today is bank holiday Monday in England and, as if it truly loves us, the sun shone brightly throughout the whole day (about time!).

Something has been brought to my attention recently, and I'm not really sure how to approach the subject.
This summer, my family and I went on holiday to Falmouth in Cornwall. I’ve visited the county quite a few times before and so I knew before I even started packing that I was going to love this week away. And I wasn’t wrong; I visited some fascinating places and, although it was temperamental, we… Continue reading Four Reasons Why I’d Go Back to Cornwall… In a Heartbeat!
