This time last year, I was sitting on my sofa feeling conflicted. On the one hand, I was eagerly anticipating my upcoming trip to Playa Del Carmen in Mexico, but on the other, I felt like something was missing. We would be spending 11 nights in Mexico, but as a teacher, I would be spending… Continue reading Why You Should Book A Last Minute Staycation This Summer
Today's post is a little different, and not something I originally intended to publish, but as BritVoyage is a travel and lifestyle blog, there's nothing wrong with sharing some home updates. Last year we were settling into our house, spending most of our time and money on painting walls, buying furniture, and replacing dodgy wiring;… Continue reading How To Fix A Garden In Three Days
Despite what Instagram leads you to believe, holidays and travelling aren't always picture perfect. Everyone knows that when you step out of your comfort zone, there's a risk of serious unfortunate events occurring, be it lost luggage, crime, or a 'holiday belly' - if you know what I mean. But, even if the logistics of… Continue reading Travelfails – Lost Luggage
As Ted was settling in to dog life when I posted our three month pupdate, I only set three targets for him to achieve before this post. I thought, if we only had three to focus on, we might have a better chance of success than if I set five or ten targets. I'd like… Continue reading Pupdates with Ted – Six Months
It's a well known stereotype that all English people speak like the Queen, have bucked teeth, and love tea. Real tea - a full bodied English breakfast tea. None of that iced tea, ginger and honey, chai stuff, no, real tea. I'm sorry to burst some of that bubble: I have a rather eclectic accent… Continue reading Why the English Love Tea
Independent review What woman doesn't enjoy a spot of afternoon tea? There's something quintessentially British about tucking into finger sandwiches and scones while sipping on tea from a bone china cup, and I love it. I love it so much so that last week, I spent my Saturday with a few friends at the newest… Continue reading Eat: By George Afternoon Tea
Edit: I am so sorry I forgot to upload the photos before this post was scheduled! It's rather embarrassing, but I hope you guys forgive me now that it's all fixed. I decided to do something a little different for today's post. I am a nosy parker, and I love to snoop in on my… Continue reading A Travel Blogger’s Work Space
In our last post about Ted, he'd been with us for two weeks and was settling in well. I listed the following next steps, and although I didn't set a target date, the three month mark is as good as any. Be warned, cute pictures and videos are coming! We need to teach Ted to… Continue reading Pupdates With Ted – Three Months
Whether you're alone, with a partner, with your pets, or with your kids, staycations can be a brilliant alternative to an expensive holiday abroad. I am a huge advocate of spending time exploring your own country, but with an abundance of food, without the security of your gym or exercise class, or hotel gym and free exercise sessions run by the entertainment team, I know it can be hard to remain motivated to keep fit.
Despite what Instagram leads you to believe, holidays and travelling aren't always picture perfect. Everyone knows that when you step out of your comfort zone, there's a risk of serious unfortunate events occurring, be it lost luggage, crime, or a 'holiday belly' - if you know what I mean. But, even if the logistics of your holiday goes swimmingly, there's always a chance of a classic #travelfail.
