the very definition of “beautiful”

if you’re happy making do on your own, saving the money you could have used to go out for dinner to instead buy another tank of petrol, and possibly travelling for hours on end without meeting a soul, you need to explore the Nordics. where everything is more expensive, and languages harder to pick up, you’ll still find locals friendly and welcoming, and full of tales they’re only too happy to share. unusual methods of transport to take you to hidden and far away places make road-tripping in these astounding countries all the more fun.

An Afternoon In Berkhamsted

If I didn’t live in St Albans, I think I’d want to live in Berkhamsted. It’s true. Another quaint market town steeped in history, I’m a little in love with the old misshapen buildings, the cobbles and the colourful facades. Spending afternoons here are one of life’s...
