Paris, Bruges & Amsterdam

Posted by on Apr 10, 2016 in Events, Things To Do, Trips, UK | 2 comments

Last week we went on our much anticipated multi city break! After a lot of research and deliberation we decided that we could fly to Paris, get the train to Bruges from there and then the train to Amsterdam from there. It was just our luck that on the day that we were booked to fly to Paris, the French air traffic control decided to strike! We knew about this the night before but thought that it would be ok, as some flights were running. We got...

Our wedding and honeymoon!

A few weeks ago we crossed off one major life event…we got married! Those of you who have followed our blog may remember when Nick proposed to me at the top of Grouse Mountain in 2014. This has been a long time coming! The day was amazing and one we will never forget :). Us being us, the horse head mask had to make an appearance! I’ll let the pictures do the talking! For our honeymoon we went to Thailand which is somewhere we have...

Amsterdam/Fleetwood Mac/Berlin

Last weekend we did something that we had been looking forward to for a long time, we visited Amsterdam again, but this time it was with my brother Mark, and his wife Charlotte. Not only that, but we were going there to see Fleetwood Mac! Unbeknown to Nick at the time, I was also taking him away to Berlin for the night after the Amsterdam part, but I’ll get on to that later! On Saturday we got to Amsterdam at about lunchtime and checked into...

We were a bit confused about what we should do with the blog when we came back from Canada. We thought it was a shame to just leave it so we’ll continue to update it with our (non Canada related) travels! A few weeks ago it was 7 months since we moved back from Canada and what better way to mark it than to leave the country again…for a few days! We decided to go to Amsterdam to soak up a bit of different culture! We flew Easyjet there and...

I left my heart in San Francisco

Posted by on Mar 10, 2014 in General, Trips | 6 comments

Last week was our last one at work, and it was a bit emotional! Regardless of our reasons for going back to the UK, we have made some good friends here and I personally can say that I’ve never worked with so many lovely people all at once, so I was very sad on my last day. I had a leaving lunch with everyone from the office, my boss gave me a gorgeous necklace and bracelet as a leaving present, and I had leaving drinks with people on my...

Snowboarding, San Francisco, and a big ring!

Posted by on Jan 21, 2014 in General, Trips, Vancouver | 0 comments

I’ve wanted to go snowboarding for as long as I can remember. I’ve only been skiing once when I was about 16, at Killington in Vermont for a school ski trip. It was bloody amazing and I loved it, but for some reason I have never been again, even though I’ve wanted too. Natalie has skied before, on some dry slopes in Scotland, probably around the same time. I imagine we were both a bit more fearless back then. I also...
