Welsh Cakes and Castles.

Welsh Cakes and Castles.

Ok. We went on a road trip around the South of Wales – Cardiff, the Brecon Beacons, Swansea, the Valleys. But something bad happened. Pretty much all my photos from this trip – gone. I have a few iPhone snaps, but the rest. Gone. I’ve […]

The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 3.

The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 3.

This is the third day of our Great Cornish Pasty Adventure. Read about day 1 and day 2. We woke up to a beautiful pink and orange sunrise and went for a walk through the hedges to reach the coast, picking blackberries that stained our […]

The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 2.

The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 2.

This is the second part of our Great Cornish Pasty Adventure – you can read about the first part here. When we woke up, the mist had set in. I couldn’t imagine a more cliched camping experience on the moors. We could hear cows and […]

The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 1.

The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 1.

Ah. The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure. ‘What?’ I hear you ask. ‘Is this an actual thing?’ You betcha it is! In Arizona they have an awesome, mildly hipster Cornish pasty restaurant. Mildly hilarious given that pasties are kind of considered equal to hot dogs – […]

Wilderness Festival.

Wilderness Festival.

I’ve never been to a camping music festival before. They are a huge thing here in the UK (think Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds), and while they certainly can be found at home, they seem less prominent. I know many other people at home who have never been […]

The Deli Downstairs Village Party.

The Deli Downstairs Village Party.

My lovely bosses at The Deli Downstairs are off to Australia until September, leaving our ragamuffin group in charge! The night before they left, they held a big party for the Village, where all our friends and neighbours (also our customers!) came and drank wine, […]

An American Independence Day in London.

An American Independence Day in London.

As I am not in the USA for the 4th of July, I thought it would be fittingly hilarious to celebrate the 4th here in London – and celebrate the day that America gained independence from the chains of Great Britain – from within Great […]

A Welsh Cake Tea Party.

A Welsh Cake Tea Party.

I am staying with some very good friends and their daughter while I wait to move into my new house in Victoria Park Village – the house is just such a lovely buzzing hive of activity. It’s beautiful in summer, as the house just opens […]

A Shoreditch Sunday.

A Shoreditch Sunday.

It’s been a big weekend. I’ve been running myself ragged trying to finish this book, so just needed a few days of fun to reset my jumbled brain. We started on friday with some beers in the park with Banjo. Well, I started 30 minutes […]

Taste of London, Summer.

Taste of London, Summer.

You might remember how ecstatic I get when Taste of Melbourne, the best food festival EVER comes around. Here is my raving hysteria and video from last years event. The Taste Festivals are held all around the world, and are the same the world over: […]

A Venezuelan Brunch, beer in a coffee roasters + a microbrewery in our park.

A Venezuelan Brunch, beer in a coffee roasters + a microbrewery in our park.

Every time I go into Central London, I have the option to leave the village by bus & tube, or bike. I usually ride. London is a great cycling city. I can get most of the way in along Regents Canal, winding and weaving under […]

A Scone Adventure in Marylebone + barista training at Climpson & Sons.

A Scone Adventure in Marylebone + barista training at Climpson & Sons.

The past few months in London have been lovely, because it has been like a revolving door of friends from Melbourne popping in and out. It’s been ridiculous actually – a lot of my spare time has been spent with friends from back home, whether […]
