How to travel to Cuba as a tourist

February 4, 2020

Do I need a visa? Yes. When you book your flights you should be directed to a website that can organise the visa for you. It costs around $100 each which you pay for online. I think you can also purchase the visa at the airport before you fly but I always prefer to get…

Wanting to try again

February 1, 2020

To try or not to try I’ll be honest. After losing 3 babies in the past 3 years, it is hard to stay positive. To keep wanting to try again. To put yourself in the situation where you could be heartbroken again and again. The decision to try for a baby feels bigger and bigger…

The British Hamper Company

Inside Vizcaya, Miami – USA

November 4, 2018

Bocas House, Coral Gables – USA

September 20, 2018

I don’t usually like milkshakes and I blame my mum for that. When we were kids we had our medication with strawberry milkshake and since then I can’t go near the stuff – and even the smell of the Mc Donalds ones makes me feel ill. However, I specifically went to Bocas House for one…

Red Frog Beach – Panama

March 13, 2018

Red Frog Beach is one of those places that you read about and it sounds incredible, but when you are actually there, it kind of doesn’t live up to the expectations and isn’t as incredible as you had read. I mean, there is nothing wrong with it, don’t get me wrong, but I have been…

Casco Viejo is the old town of Panama City and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. This might come as a surprise, especially since we went to actual paradise, the San Blas islands and spent time with the Kuna Indians.. but.. I think Casco Viejo is my favourite part of Panama so…

Kuna Indians – Panama

Since I knew we were going to visit Panama for 6 weeks, the first thing I wanted to do was visit the San Blas Islands. Firstly, because they look like actual paradise (read my blog post here) and secondly I wanted to see the culture for myself. I had seen the photographs and coming from…
