  • Have you ever realized you were one million percent wrong about a place? I have, and I’ve got some apologies to make to the city of Brussels, Belgium 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Brussels and I have history. In fact, upon starting my blog in late 2014, one of the first articles I ever published was about how terrible I thought it was. This, coming from an ignorant newbie traveler who thought the #1 thing to see really WAS just a tiny statue of a little boy peeing (yes this exists, and it’s called Manneken Pis). My friend hated it so much she cried. 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My most recent visit last week, 5 years wiser, I finally got to enjoy Brussels. The biggest difference? I ignored top ten to do lists and relied on local tips instead. Thanks @alongcameanelephant for helping me see the real Brussels! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A few observations: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1️⃣ Walk down the right streets, and everything WILL smell like waffles 2️⃣ Brussels has approximately one bajillion museums, dedicated to everything from comic books and vintage cars to musical instruments and the wardrobe of that tiny little peeing boy statue. I visited 6! 3️⃣ Brussels isn’t ONLY about waffles, beer and chocolate...... although hefty consumption of these are likely to increase enjoyment 4️⃣ The architecture is wildly opulent, so like, bring a ball gown to match 💃🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have any cities you’d love to give a second chance to? After reconciling with Brussels, I’m inspired 😂 #Brussels #IWaffleYouSo

  • I’m curious what the situation is with heating in cute cottages like this 🤔 I have the impression it’s very cold inside during winter time ⛄️ I still can’t get used to how cold it is in London flats (probably not in all of them). We live in a very old house and even we have a heating on all day long it doesn’t get even close to comfortably warm ...

  • A big decision when heading to Croatia is whether to visit Plitvice Natinal Park or Krka National Park! First world problems right?! 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏻‍♂️ .. .. We chose Krka for a few reasons: .. .. 1. It was closer to the coast so we didn't have to detour inland from our coastal route (less driving = win)! .. .. 2. It is smaller so easier to walk around with littlies 👧🏼🧒🏼 .. .. 3. You can swim in the waterfalls in Krka but not in Plitvice (this was SO welcome in the peak Croatian summer!) .. .. Some info for Krka (this applies to visiting in peak tourist season with kids): .. .. 1. Catch the FIRST boat out in the morning. The boat is big so there was plenty of room, the park just gets so crowded later on. The ticket office in Skradin opened at 7am and the boat left at 8am. .. .. 2. The National Park entry was 200 kunas (low season is much cheaper) and this included your return boat trip. Children 7 and under are free. It takes 20-25 minutes and is beautiful. .. .. 3. Once you arrive you can walk around the bottom loop which takes about an hour. You can hike further up to other waterfalls or take another boat trip but we opted for just the main loop. Don't take a pram! .. .. 4. We took food with us but there's food/drink outlets right near the main waterfall as you get off the boat. .. .. 5. After the loop around, you can jump in for a swim! Take rock shoes (the ground is SO spikey) and for young kids, we recommend taking some floaties as the current is VERY strong (you'll definitely need to get in the water with them!) .. .. We were so happy with our choice to go to Krka and also cannot wait to visit Plitvice one day when the kiddies are older! .. .. Have you been to Krka or Plitvice? What did you think? 🧒🏼👧🏼 .. .. #krka #krkanationalpark #plitvice #croatia #split

  • “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” Yesterday, poet Mary Oliver left this earth, but her poetic inspiration lives on. Do you like poetry? I really enjoy reading it but I’m horrible at writing it. Oliver had an exploration into spirituality & she had a way of writing that made the art of poetry feel accessible for everyone to grasp, understand & appreciate.
