While I wouldn’t describe myself as a comper (a person who regularly enters competitions as a hobby or career) I do love indulging in the occasional travel giveaway and I’ve won some wonderful things over the years. What’s more I enjoy running them on my blog as much as entering them and I’ve a great little giveaway of my own at the end of this post but first I’d like to introduce you to the Matthews…
Giant waffles, served with bacon, berries and lashings of maple syrup. Just the thought of it now has me nearly dribbling over my laptop (sorry). Sadly I had food envy as my eggs faded in comparison to the delight on a plate that my fellow blogger was devouring. A week of eating like this though would really flummox my fight against the pounds. The food in Canada, however, was so very good throughout that the battle was lost before it had begun. And I indulged… a lot.
A riot of colour. A gentle pace of life. Palm trees, tumbling bourgainvillea and white sandy beaches that stretch for miles. Temples and churches. Jungles to explore. And not forgetting some of the most delicious food I’ve ever tasted. Goa is a perfect holiday destination for me. Having spent a wonderful week here visiting hotels with The Goa Experience here’s my pick of my favourite 5 places to stay in this magical corner of India.
Last weekend I had a wonderful day out at the Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love in London, discovering some fascinating exhibitions and art installations, as well as the great food market that is held there every weekend. Accompanying me were not one, but two, loves-of-my-love, namely Neill my half Italian, half English fiancé and a gorgeous leather handbag from Maxwell Scott Bags, that likewise is half English and half Italian. A winning combination indeed.
A colourful, beautifully illustrated, in-depth guide to the street food of Thailand, this is an absolute must for any food lovers visiting this exciting country.
Hotel Illa d’Or, by the water’s edge, with a stunning view of the bay of Porto Pollensa, this is the perfect base from which to explore northern Mallorca.
