Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I know I haven’t posted much recently, but here are some highlights from our New Year’s in Dorset and Wiltshire. We stayed in the charming town of Shaftesbury, with the steep cobbled street known as Gold Hill. We visited the Old Wardour Castle, built in the 14th century and Stourhead, a huge estate with a Palladian mansion, gardens, woodland and farmland. It was a lovely getaway and a great way to start the year!

Biddeford Pool, Maine

David and I had a great week (which certainly wasn’t long enough) in Biddeford Pool! We had a delicious food, took a really nice bike ride to Timber Point, took a tour of the nunnery building and I got some tennis in. I can’t wait to be back there.

Wedding!

I know that it’s been a long time since I’ve posted, and a lot has happened. First of all, David and I got married in London, at the Chelsea Town Hall on April 5th! It was a lovely ceremony, with a very intimate group of our family and friends followed by a delicious lunch at Bluebird. All photographs were taken by Patryk Stanisz.

Biddeford Pool and Dorset

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted, but I had a great time in Biddeford Pool and then Dorset, England for New Years. The coastline is part of the Jurassic Coast due to its geological and paleontological significance. It’s stunning and we had a great time!

Battle, East Sussex

I had a great weekend in Battle, East Sussex with some friends. We went for a long walk, with a pub lunch to break it up, enjoyed the company of Kallie, an Australian shepherd and the autumnal leaves.

Copenhagen

I’ve been so busy that I am a little behind on my posts. I was recently in Copenhagen for work and then stayed for the weekend. It was a beautiful (and hot) week with a visit to Louisiana Museum, Arken Museum, the botanical gardens and lots of delicious food with great company. It’s such a fun city!

Amsterdam

I had a great weekend in Amsterdam! A wonderful visit to the Museum van Loon, a canalside house built in 1672, named after the family that lived there from the 19th century. We had good food, walked along the canals and visited the Rijksmuseum.

Iceland

I recently came back from an amazing trip to Iceland. We started our adventure in Reykjavik, saw Strokkur geysir and the Gulfoss waterfall and then drove up the West coast to Borganes, Hellnar and around the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. We then continued to Stykkishólmur where we took a ferry to Flatey Island, and spent the night. It was an absolutely wonderful trip, with great company, delicious food and beautiful landscape. I would highly recommend Iceland! And if you want to see more photos, click here.

Devon

We spent last weekend in Devon which was wonderful. We stayed in a fantastic bed and breakfast called Lee Byre. The farmhouse was beautiful and the food was amazing! We took some great walks on Dartmoor and enjoyed the stunning landscape. I can’t wait to go back!
