When Should I Book My Flight For The Best Deal?

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

You know what it’s like. After hours of Googling and endless advice from friends and family, you finally decide on your big holiday destination. But the flights have gone up in price since you started looking, and you haven’t dared refresh the hotel prices again.

Top 5 Things To Do In Nerja, Spain

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

Camden Food Awards 2017

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.

Camden’s Best Brunch: Leyas, Camden High Street 

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.

Top 5 Things To Do In Antequera, Spain

With an incredible rock resembling a man’s face, endless ornate churches, dolmens dating back to 1800 BC, and beautiful views, Antequera is an incredible place for a day trip from Malaga.

Antequera is a city of history. It’s the kind of history you can wander all over, get under the skin of and really soak up! One of my favourite things to do was trek to the top of the city and look down. All dressed in white, it really makes for a picture postcard Andalusian view. 

At under an hour’s drive, Antequera makes a great day trip from Malaga. To really make the most of your trip, I’d recommend spending a few days in Malaga, before heading to explore Ronda, Nerja and Antequera.
