Buckt March - Bingo

Buckt March

We all know about subscription boxes that vary from food, tea, or chocolate to beauty. Well, there is another subscription box, that is quite different. I’m talking about Buckt, a subscription box with activities!* How amazing is that? I loved the concept and I was happy to collaborate with them. Thus, this is my review […]

Royal Observatory Greenwich

Royal Observatory Greenwich

This is my last post from London, with Royal Observatory Greenwich. I share a bit of the history of the Observatory and a few pictures. It’s well worth a visit. At the end of the post you can find some tips regarding parking if you are driving to the Observatory. In March 1675, King Charles […]

209 Women. Theresa May, MP for Maidenhead, British Conservative Party, Prime Minister

209 Women

I’ve seen on twitter that a new exhibition opened at Open Eye Gallery on the docks in Liverpool. It is entitled 209 Women and it marks 100 years of women suffrage. The exhibition features 209 portraits of the UK’s women MPs, shot entirely by photographers that identify as women. I think the whole idea of […]

Queen's House, view from the Royal Observatory

Queen’s House

Queen’s House is one of the most important tourist attractions in Greenwich, alongside Cutty Sark, the Royal Observatory, National Maritime Museum, and Fan Museum. Queen’s House has a very interesting history and on top of that, it houses a very impressive art collection. The entrance to the Queen’s House is free, but check their website […]

Audrey Hepburn at Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds

As anybody can imagine, Madame Tussauds was on my list of places to visit in London. Because the price is quite high and my list is very long too, I kept postponing, until our latest trip to London. Now, after visiting the museum, I would say is worth the entry fee and also what we’ve […]

Cutty Sark. Seen from outside

Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark is a well known ship, transformed into a museum at Greenwich, in London. I’ve seen it the first time I’ve been in London, back in 2012, but I didn’t visit the museum. After our recent holidays, where we’ve visited SS Great Britain in Bristol and the less known HMS Trincomalee up north, in […]

Russia, Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace

Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace

There are three different attractions that can be visited at Buckingham Palace: Queen’s Gallery, The Royal Mews, and The State Rooms. On the day, Sunday, we went to Buckingham Palace only the Queen’s Gallery was open. The State Rooms are open this year from 20 July to 29 September. As it happened, the Royal Mews […]

HMS Trincomalee

Museums in Hartlepool

My husband and I recently visited two museums in Hartlepool, National Museum of the Royal Navy & HMS Trincomalee and Museum of Hartlepool. The second one is free, but there is a fee for the first one. Even so, it’s worth it and, even more, you can have access to the museum for an year […]

Bag of Nails London. Outside

Bag of Nails London

Bag of Nails is a pub in London, a few minutes from Buckingham Palace. We’ve had lunch there before visiting the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham. I will talk about that in another post, in a few days. The pub is lovely and it was very busy, as one can imagine. The first historical record of […]

Axe throwing

Axe Throwing

What can be more romantic for Valentine’s Day than to go Axe Throwing in Manchester at Whistle Punks? Well, I imagine most women (and a lot of men) would reply with something else, but not us. I saw axe throwing in the south, when I was looking for things to do/see in our holiday, but […]
