Escape the crowds in Orlando and Miami and head to Martin County – the REAL Florida.
For many, holidays in Florida are focused on two things: theme parks and beaches. With warm weather pretty much guaranteed, the state receives planeloads of tourists every week. But beyond Orlando’s adrenaline rides, Miami’s nightlife and the idyllic beaches of the Keys… what else is there?
Well, around two hours north of Miami is Martin County. With miles of untouched Atlantic beaches, nature, plenty of art and culture, incredible wildlife, top places to eat and fun activities for all the family, it really is a great holiday destination. With Stuart (the heartbeat to the region) being voted America’s Happiest Seaside Town, I couldn’t wait to find out what made it so special.

Looking for cheap flights? When should you book and how do you know when to play the waiting game?

With its surprising sub-tropical climate, the beautiful coastal town of Nerja is home to miles of sandy beaches, top seafood, incredible ancient caves and what is proudly known as the Balcony of Europe!
Almost two years ago I went on a road trip around southern Spain visiting Madrid, Ronda and Seville. Fancying a bit of time at the Spanish seaside we decided upon Nerja. It looked pretty, had plenty of things to do and by all accounts, even in January would be reasonably warm. Tick!
While for me it didn’t have the Andalusian charm of the other cities, it did have a real Spanish seaside feel. You know, it felt fun! It had pretty beaches, great ice cream and nic-nacs galore. While there I was desperate to visit Nerja’s famous caves. Typically I arrived to find they’d just closed for the day. Continue reading Top 5 Things To Do In Nerja, Spain→
My pick of Camden’s best restaurants and bars for 2017.
One of my favourite things about Camden is its food scene. It’s certainly never dull! From egg porn brunches to exotic cocktails, street food and mesmerising ice cream, I’ve eaten my way around Camden all in the name of research. So whether you’re looking for an awesome Sunday roast, Camden’s best curry house or just need to grab a quick coffee to start your day, enjoy my guide to Camden’s hottest food and drink spots.
I’ll admit this was a tough category to judge! Camden has some great brunch spots, with special mentions going to The Blues Kitchen (for when you need a big feed) and Made Bar and Kitchen at the Roundhouse. But for the best coffee in Camden, Instagram-worthy egg porn and delicious smashed avo on toast, head to Leyas.
