Food Tour of the Jordaan With a Local – Amsterdam Walking Tour!

We’ve found, on our new kid-free city breaks freedom, that a perfect way to instantly get to know a new city is to take a walking tour with a knowledgeable local guide. Which is why when we visited Amsterdam recently, we jumped at the chance of an Amsterdam walking tour; thanking Eating Europe, and signing up instantly for their Jordaan Food Tour. We were in Amsterdam on a kid-free city break, trying out the new direct...

Why Are Last Minute Breaks So Damned Good For You?

I’m currently working with Travel Supermarket – all content is my own thoughts & opinions. Contains affiliate links. Spontaneity is one of the first things we lose when we become parents. Deciding on a whim to go out for dinner/see a film/go away for the weekend is much trickier when it’s followed up with ‘have you got the nappies/wipes/change of clothes/spare dummy/changing mat… or, frankly, the...

Direct London-Amsterdam Train, in under 4hrs, for £35? We Tried It.

When we saw that Eurostar had introduced a direct London-Amsterdam train, we just had to give it a go. It’s no secret that we’re big fans of train travel – with a husband who simply won’t fly, train travel is how Europe opened up to us for some fabulous kid-free short breaks (there are benefits to the small people growing into capable teenagers who can be left alone for a few days without burning the house (or...

Hotel near London Coliseum – English National Opera (ENO)? Try Holborn | Thistle Kingsley Review

This week I was oh-so-super excited to be headed into London for a new experience – I had my very first ‘night at the opera’ (and before you roll your eyes… 1) everyone should go at least once, and 2) the ENO runs this amazing Opera Undressed scheme specially for opera virgins and it’s bloody brilliant).

I’m In Love. #OperaUndressed

I have honestly just had one of the most glorious nights in a theatre I can remember. It was a Christmas gift from my in-laws – I had seen a mention that ENO run regular ‘Opera Undressed’ events, designed especially for opera virgins. **And no, this is NOT a paid review – the tickets were paid for by my lovely Mother In Law.
