Natural History Museum

Natural History Museum is a must for everyone travelling to London. This was my first visit when I was able to see everything and read details. I’ve been there before, but in a hurry as I didn’t have a lot of time. We got in the side entrance and we’ve started with the section on […]

Sensational Butterflies at Natural History Museum

I love butterflies and I wanted to see this exhibition for a while. I have been to a Butterfly House a few years ago in Vienna and I loved it. So, the last two attractions I went to on my holiday in London were Sensational Butterflies at Natural History Museum and the museum. Sensational Butterflies […]

Stoney Middleton

Last weekend we’ve been to Stoney Middleton to attend the Well Dressing celebrations . The village is beautiful and picturesque, so I made a post about it. I took a map from the local pub with a circular walk around the village. On a sunny day it was a delight. Stoney Middleton is a village […]

Well Dressing

As an expat, I’m fascinated by local traditions. I think that one of the best ways to understand the culture of a country is to attend small events in picturesque villages. I’ve been to a duck race in Lymm and I enjoyed myself a lot. Yesterday hubby and I went to see the Well Dressing […]

Bettys, Harrogate

On Monday I’ve been to Harrogate. If you read my blog for a while you might have noticed Bettys, because (if I’m not mistaken), every time I’ve been to Harrogate I stopped at Bettys for desserts. Only twice we were able to find a table at Bettys and I have no idea how we were […]

Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace

As a Royalist, Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace was high on my list of things to see in London. The ceremony takes 45 minutes and it starts at 11.15. There is an app but we didn’t get it. The privilege of guarding the Sovereign traditionally belongs to The Guards, also known as Household Troops. […]

9 Good things

I had a very busy period, lots of things to blog about and I kept postponing the good things post. I wanted to mention F1 in the list, but the sad news about Jules Bianchi made it impossible to count it as a good thing. 1. Fresh fruits from the garden. These delicious summer fruits […]

Brazilica 2015, Liverpool

Brazilica in Liverpool was the 8th annual International Samba Carnival. The Festival included exhibitions, a film festival, concerts, talks and the parade. We’ve only been to the parade, on Saturday, as hubby was very busy these days. This is my favourite picture from the parade, she looks so happy. The Parade was bigger than I […]

Cliveden woods

Cliveden is part of National Trust, a little over an hour’s drive from central London. As we didn’t have enough time to visit the house too, we’ve only been to the Cliveden woods. There are 3 different trails to follow, but as it was late, we wondered around, looking at signs and we managed to […]

British Museum

On the second day of my short holiday in London we’ve been to The British Museum. I’ve been there before two years ago, but hubby didn’t visit it before. The British Museum was founded in 1753 and it was the first national public museum in the world. Sir Hans Sloane was a keen collector and […]
