20 Stories – Manchester

20 Stories – Manchester

Since I moved to Manchester fairly recently, I’ve been keen to try more of the city’s restaurants.  It’s an exciting time for Manchester right now, with so many new bars and restaurants popping up.  20 Stories was one place in particular that I had on my list, after...

Beer Tasting In Belgium

Beer Tasting In Belgium

If there’s one thing that Belgium is known for doing best, it’s beer.  The city of Leuven has gained a reputation for being the brewing capital of Belgium, so it was safe to say that we had come to the right place for a world-class pint.  Our Belgian beer tasting...

Vertigo – Bangkok

Vertigo – Bangkok

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to rooftop bars in Bangkok.  My unwavering favourite, not just in Bangkok but the-world-over, will always be the Sirocco Sky Bar at the Lebua State Tower.  However, I’d heard good things about Vertigo Moon Bar at the Banyan...

Plant-Based In Scotland

Polurrian Hotel – Cornwall

If like me, you love a good sea view, then I have a great place in Cornwall to show you.  The Polurrian Bay Hotel is perched on the cliffs of the Lizard Peninsula, so it has some incredibly stunning views out across the ocean for as far as the eye can see. I’d not...

London Cocktail Week is in full swing, so to celebrate, I thought that I would show you one of my favourite cocktail destinations in the city – Aqua at The Shard.   Aqua is a great place to go if you are visiting the city as it has some of the best panoramic views to...
