Is there a better way to enjoy (or escape) the heatwave than going to the seaside? I haven’t yet been convinced otherwise. We often go to Brighton when we want to get out of London and re-energise but this time around we thought we’d visit a new place so we chose Hastings.
Last weekend we skipped the usual brunch and instead started our Sunday with a classical music concert at Holywell Music Room in Oxford.
A few days taking in the unspoilt beauty of Crete and the last rays of Greek sunshine before the winter.
What I loved about Florence is that it has its own colours, its own distinct flavour. The hustle and bustle you would only normally find in a capital, interrupted by quiet, pebbled streets and an endless number of enchanting piazze that come to life at night with classical music concerts.
I may have been impatiently counting the days until this trip so when the day finally came I was over the moon. Colourful coastal villages and Italian food, what’s not to dream about?
