Holiday season is well and truly here and everyone’s heading away to catch some rays! I’m off to Crete soon and I can’t wait for some relaxation, feta cheese and seriously pretty sunsets. The only thing that can be a little tricky in our vacay situations is trying to fit everything you own into a teeny, tiny suitcase!
Ok, ok, maybe a bit click bait-y but it’s totally true. Leeds is the only city I’ve been to on a city break that I could see myself living in. We’ve been to Amsterdam, Dublin, Barcelona (up there!), Manchester, London and loads more in the few years that we’ve been together and Leeds was definitely my favourite city break.
La Bottega Linka is one of the best places in Prague for breakfast or brunch (and even lunch actually, we went there twice on our trip!). It’s a seriously cool industrial-feeling cafe with incredible food.
We discovered this place on Instagram, naturally, and headed there for our first meal when we’d landed in Prague. We needed lunch! For our first meal we had a picnic style lunch of different salads and then bread and freshly cut meats and cheese. They have a deli in the cafe with all of these ready to go and everything looked amazing. We had such a delicious lunch and we spied this ‘Sweet Breakfast’ on the menu so decided to book for our last morning in Prague.
You all know I love a city break. Let’s walk 35 miles in three days and pretend we’re not tired? OK, cool! But seriously, city breaks are amazing, you cram so much into a long weekend and just like that, you’ve seen a whole new city, experienced new foods and had a load of fun with your favourite people. Here are my nine recommendations on what to do in Prague.
I’ve never been to Thailand but it’s definitely on my travel bucket list so I will 100% be entering this amazing competition. I thought I’d definitely tell you guys about it because it’s an incredible prize. I didn’t realise how much you could actually do in Thailand so whilst checking out this competition I definitely learnt a few things and I wanted to share them! Here are 6 amazing things you can get up to in Thailand.
I’ve started travelling a lot more within the past few years and visiting loads of new cities, both in the UK and Europe. I’ve discovered how much I love being a ‘travel blogger’ and how useful it is to other people to be able to read reviews of places and see real-life images of hotels, resorts and places to eat and drink. We always, always read numerous reviews about hotels, cafes and things to do before we hit a new city or holiday destination! I follow so many travel bloggers, I’ll do a post on my favourites soon but, if you’re a travel blogger or Instagrammer, I’ve found the best hashtags to make sure your content is seen throughout the channels and profiles that you want it to be.
Brunch, the meal of our generation, right? I don’t think anyone’s eaten as much #avocadotoast or eggs with a side of coffee than Gen Z, right? Definitely and I’m not complaining. Brunch has to be one of my favourite meals ever and it’s basically what all of our holidays and trips revolve around. During our Dublin trip, we headed to the well-recommended San Lorenzo’s, a New York/Italian style restaurant in the heart of the city centre. You can check our their brunch menu or read on for a taste of our experience!
With the announcement that Nottingham might be getting its own street food market (yaaaas!), I thought it’d be sweet to round up some of the best street food markets and pop-ups in the UK right now. It’s safe to say that we’re definitely very excited to be getting our very own street food market because it’s something that we feel Notts has been missing for a while. We get the occasional pop-up here and there but nothing as monumental as some of the other street food markets in the UK’s other cities like Manchester and London! Here’s the run-down of the best out there at the moment…
I love finding new coffee shops and cafes when I head away because I love to recommend great places for people to go to when they travel, that’s one of the best things about being a travel and food blogger, the two go hand in hand!
My newest favourite is 3FE. 3FE Coffee were founded by Colin Harmon, an ex-trustee officer for a professional investment fund who worked in Dublin’s financial district. He realised that finance wasn’t really for him and in 2008, quit his job and got a job as a barista and now owns two coffee shops in Dublin city centre and creates some pretty tasty drinks and awesome food. 3FE have locations at Grand Canal St and Sussex Terrace.
Over numerous city breaks, holidays and sunshine-seeking trips I’ve learnt a few things about travelling that I’ve turned into some simple rules that I follow every time I go away to make the break run as smoothly as possible! We’ve recently been to Dublin which you would have seen if you follow me on Instagram and I definitely used all of these tips before and during the time that we were away.
