Why would you want buy your food pre-packaged from Tesco when you can skip down to the garden and pluck pesticide-free herbs and gather eggs from a happy hen? Locally sourced and welfare-friendly food is becoming a huge trend in foodie circles and where better to indulge in your thoughtful food passion than a sprawling traditional villa nestled in the rolling hills of Tuscany…Posted on: October 10th in Europe, Our Trips, Travel by Becky Padmore.

Thank you to our friends Goats on the Road for nominating us for the Capture The Colour Competition. Launched by Travel Supermarket, the contest challenges bloggers to select five of their favourite travel photographs that best capture the colour of five categories: red, blue, green, yellow and white…Posted on: September 27th in Our Trips, Travel by Graham Padmore.
We’ve got to be honest, it’s not often we get to stay in a Knightsbridge hotel. So when Secret hotels offered us a stay in one of the most exclusive parts of London known for its huge department stores, boutique shops and gorgeous eateries we didn’t have to think long about our answer….Posted on: August 22nd in Our Trips, Travel by Becky Padmore.
Sat on a quiet residential street in west London, K West Hotel & Spa with its huge glass front exterior, cuts a surreally striking figure, especially amongst the sea of Victorian terraced houses which surround it. Just a mere two minute stroll from Shepherd’s Bush station and the shopping behemoth Westfield London…Posted on: August 9th in Cool Hotels, Our Trips, Travel, UK by Becky Padmore.
Switzerland’s largest city is really starting to come into its own. With its huge crystal-clear lake, attractive old town and backdrop of beautiful mountains, Zurich has always been known for its high standard of living (as well as anonymous bank accounts). Now though the city is also shedding its once uptight and dare we say…slightly stuffy image….Posted on: July 29th in Europe, Our Trips by Becky Padmore.
A place which has long held fascination with the rest of the world and attracted the likes of Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and of course the cream of Europe’s glitterati. In June we explored the Côte d’Azur region starting in the typical Provence village of La Garde Freinet, then moving on to St Tropez, Cannes, Nice…Posted on: July 22nd in Europe, Our Trips, Travel by Graham Padmore.
I wouldn’t exactly say Cannes is a surprising city. Although some might say they wouldn’t expect it to be as small as it is (it had humble beginnings as a small fishing village) but otherwise the glitz, the glamour, the beautiful people, the tiny poodles, and the harbour filled with yachts bigger than most people’s houses is just how you’d expect the French Riviera’s arguably most famous city to be…Posted on: July 18th in Europe, Our Trips, Travel by Becky Padmore.
Overcrowded and a little too cute to some and perfectly preserved romantic medieval city to others, Bruges seems to divide opinons. Although thousands of visitors can’t be wrong and with a collection of attractive market squares, steep-gabled houses lining dreamy canals and winding cobbled streets…..Posted on: June 13th in Europe, Our Trips by Graham Padmore.
In May we travelled to Ghent, a small but beautiful city in Belgium which was once Europe’s best kept secret. A city just as famous for its acclaimed restaurants and rich cultural calendar of events as it is for its picture perfect canal-side architecture and ever-so-slight bohemian air. Here is gorgeous Ghent in BIG pictures…Posted on: June 3rd in Europe, Our Trips, Travel by Graham Padmore.
We wanted to find a way to turn captured travel images into unique gifts and home decor. The type of gifts that would spark a memory of travel without the usual tackiness you’d associate with a souvenir…Posted on: May 27th in Our Trips, Travel by Becky Padmore.
