A walk round Brighton, England

Brighton is a seaside resort on the south coast of England. It’s just down the road from where a lot of my family live so whenever i’m back I always try to spend a day there wandering round and shopping. (okay, mostly shopping)

The seaside town is well known for it’s pebble beach, it’s pier, it’s Pavilion, the British Airways i360 (which was our first stop) and my favourite area – The Lanes which is just the cutest shopping area of narrow, winding streets and a must visit when in Brighton!

Burj Al Arab – The Most Luxurious Hotel in The World

Back in December I was lucky enough to goto Dubai and while I was there we got to visit the amazing Burj Al Arab. Built on a man-made island, construction of the Burj Al Arab began in 1993 and was completed in 1999. The Burj Al Arab is one of the most iconic buildings in Dubai and its unique sail-like shape is easy to spot from a far. If you have ever been to Dubai then it will come as no surprise that you will find “the world’s only 7-star hotel” there…..

Kings Day in Holland with Ketel One

A couple of weeks ago an email landed in my inbox inviting me to experience Kings Day with Ketel One. For those that don’t know – Kings Day (formally known as Koninginnedag/Queens Day up until 2013, when Queen Beatrix abdicated and was succeeded by her son Willem-Alexander) is the Kings Birthday celebrations and the biggest party in the Dutch calendar!  I jumped at the chance to attend such a cool campaign, although i’ve celebrated Queens Day in the past this would be my first Kings Day. It was such a fun couple of days exploring Holland, meeting lovely people, eating delicious food and of course drinking great vodka…
