Full disclosure, I wrote this months ago, but the messages and tips are still very valid. Enjoy! So you’re new to town? Well, me too. Maybe you’ve simply been out of town for a while or maybe, like me, you’ve made the move because London is a money pit and the West Midlands were calling out to you. 2 weeks in, here are 5 of my favourite foodie finds, so far.[gmsp_map id="gmsp-map-5d4d78deba236" w="100%" h="400px"]View More
Brunching in Brum
I originally wrote this in my capacity as Food & Drinks Editor for City Girl Magazine. Enjoy the full article here If there’s one thing that unites a lot of City Girls, it’s food, and the Birmingham City Girl Network is no different. But where to go? In the UK’s second city there are loads of brunch options so I recently asked the network for their favourites and here are some that came up.[gmsp_map id="gmsp-map-5d4d7f3338f94" w="100%" h="400px"]View More
Thailand's capital is a tale of two cities, the old town and the mega modern. We were staying in the old town and found the cheapest, most fun, and the fastest way to get into modern downtown Bangkok was via a local river bus. With this duality comes a contrast of modern Asian cuisine alongside great street food.[gmsp_map id="gmsp-map-5c0159fcbe648" w="100%" h="400px"]View More
Chiang Mai is the largest city in Northern Thailand and one of my favourite places to visit on my trip. It's certainly cheaper than Bangkok and substantially cheaper than the islands. As well as visiting elephants and the marvelous Doi Suthep I was lucky enough to sample a fair bit of local cuisine during my 48 hour stay.[gmsp_map id="gmsp-map-5c015d8877caf" w="100%" h="400px"]View More
There were certain things that I was really excited to experience, and subsequently loved, that don't fit into my usual post format. Mainly strange crisp flavours, lasagna won here, and milk tea in abundance. So here's a summary of some of the best places we found across Thailand. Certainly not exhaustive but worth keeping an eye out.View More
Sydney is every instagrammer and food bloggers dream. If you have a sweet tooth then this should be high on your list of places to visit.
I could have done a whole other post on Sydney's icecream parlours. To me the late night culture of grabbing an icecream is the thing I miss the most. To me, Messina is life![gmsp_map id="gmsp-map-5b7d37d0d1e53" w="100%" h="400px"]View More
Since returning from Vienna it has very much become clear that no one associates Vienna with its wine and vineyards. It was only a couple of days out from this trip that I realised that Wien and wein (German for wine) only have slightly different structures. So as well as indulging in plenty of cake, and a fabulous visit to the Opera, there was also plenty of fantastic Austrian wine to be had.
Vienna is the only capital city with vineyards and it is absolutely worth the short ride out of the centre to see these for yourself![gmsp_map id="gmsp-map-5b61c56262bfc" w="100%" h="400px"]View More
Germany will always be one of my favourite places to visit, but as someone with quite a restricted diet (I don't eat beef) I've always struggled to find foods that are fun, healthy, and varied. In recent years however, Berlin's food scene has exploded and the results are phenomenal. Prenzlauer Berg in the Pankow district proved to have a huge variety of delicious eats, although we returned to Café Hilde three times.[gmsp_map id="gmsp-map-5b1ad8d8edb3f" w="100%" h="400px"]View More
Newtown, in Inner West Sydney, will always have a place in my heart. I lived here for about a year in probably the best apartment I will ever live in with one of the most fantastic roof terraces.
It's an eclectic place with an amazing culture. From crystal shops to Thai food, if you're ever in Sydney it's worth the two stops on the train from the CBD.[gmsp_map id="gmsp-map-5b1ad511a7263" w="100%" h="400px"]View More
