Brazil part 2- Rio and Iguacu

In case you haven’t seen yesterdays post, in the summer me and my friend Katie went out to Brazil for the Olympics, travelling for two weeks up the cost from Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro. Check out yesterdays blog on part 1 in brazil here. Today’s post is about Rio de Janeiro itself and Iguazu falls which we managed to squeeze in at the end of our two week trip.

We travelled up to Rio by a little tour bus which we had pre booked- the best thing about it was it dropped us at our hostel door. We stayed here and though in general the hostel was only ok 5/10 (breakfasts were awful!) it was in a fantastic location only Continue reading “Brazil part 2- Rio and Iguacu”

Brazil part 1- Paraty and Isla Grande

As some of you may have spotted from my Instagram feed on the right, this summer I was extremely lucky and managed to go to Brazil for the Summer Olympics. I haven’t written a blog post on it up until now because im struggling with where to start really. There is just too much to say about it all and I don’t think I will be able to express it the right way….but after ummming and ahhhing about it for a while I have decided to just go for it and we will see where I get to. Unfortunately I broke my phone on day 1 no joke, so photos especially of the first part of the trip are limited.

We (me and bezzie) went to Brazil for two months, flying into Sao Paulo (because it was way cheaper!) and working our way northwards to Rio de Janeiro. Looking at it on a map we moved about 2cms in Continue reading “Brazil part 1- Paraty and Isla Grande”

Dreaming of France

Another grim day in 2016, a year which will go down in history and not in a good way! Like many othersim sure, today’s result made me think back to our brexit result in June a truly miserable day. And though for me today wasn’t quite as bad, no tears at least, it is adding to the grim picture of the future ahead of us. So…instead of sulking I have decided think about other things, like dreaming of France… 🙂

Earlier this year my parents decided to do something that they have talked about for a long time, they bought a house in France!! Me and my siblings as you can imagine are completely and Continue reading “Dreaming of France”

Firenze city break

Firenze! Home to pasta, pizza, prosecco, piazzas and prosciutto (thanks to charlotte for that little list there) though they may be for Italy in total not just Florence.

As you may have seen from my latest Instagram photos, I was lucky enough to get away from work for a couple of days and headed off to Florence for a long weekend. It was my first trip to the city (town?) and I have to say I loved it, much more than I thought I would too!

We actually flew to Pisa instead of Florence as the flights were around £60 return instead of over £200! And it is only a 50 minute trains journey across which is 8 Continue reading “Firenze city break”

Kitchen updates for £10!

This weekend I spent helping my twin sister update her kitchen. Gill bought her flat about two years ago now and has spent a lot of time putting the effort in to make it nicer and more homely. This mainly involved painting walls and buying art work to put on the walls. I must say that so far she has done a great job!

However there was one aspect which was letting the rest of the flat down…the kitchen. When she first got the flat the kitchen has cream walls, blue tiles, a red work surface and green trim Continue reading “Kitchen updates for £10!”

Seven sisters

Shortly after writing my 30 before 30 list I actually got the chance to tick one of them off. Ali had a rare Saturday completely free from work and with the weather forecast set to be sunny all day we decided to go and tackle the seven sisters in East Sussex. They are a set of (actually eight) rolling chalky cliffs along the coast which are one of the most famous walks in England to do.

Living in London the journey there was pretty Continue reading “Seven sisters”
