Dubai Roast Dinner Diaries – Part 6

If you don’t know already, which is unlikely if you know me, I do love a good roast dinner.  Actually, it doesn’t even have to be particularly good for me to enjoy it.  It just has to have veggies and meat, and of course the all important Yorkshire pudding! There are a huge amount on…

Pizza & Prosecco

What a winning combination, right!  If you then add on top an all in one price, then you win BIG time! All you can eat pizza and all you can drink prosecco all for the princely sum of AED 149 for ladies, or AED 199 for the gents.  Not only can you drink prosecco, there is…

KK’s Texan Grill House, South Croydon

I have mentioned before that one of the bonuses about being an expat is all the lovely people you meet that you normally wouldn’t have, but that it’s sad when those lovely people leave.  It’s not as bad though when they end up just down the road from your family! Lesley is one of those…

Le Raj, Banstead, Surrey

The spot of “My Favourite Restaurant” is a really tricky one to fill.  I like so many different types of food, and have been fortunate enough to eat in so many different countries, that I can never quite decide on an absolute winner.  I mean, how do you choose between your favourite steak place vs…

The Barge House, London N1

You know how every now and again you see something on Instagram and think “I need that”?  It could be a new face mask, or a mermaid blanket, or something delicious to eat.  But you just know that you will have to have it in your life at some point. Well, that was me and…

My Chocolate

As laid out in my previous two posts (here and here), Mummy and I do love a good adventure.  With this in mind and knowing that I would be home on certain dates, I bought us a chocolate making class via Virgin Experiences.  It was a bit of a random gamble but I went with…

Our London Adventure – Pt 2

After eating a lot of very yummy pasta at Prezzo, and realising that it was technically still Rush Hour, we decided to walk across the road to Trafalgar Square.  Naturally I had to sing “Feed the Birds” despite the fact there are no birds to feed anymore. I couldn’t tell you the last time I…

Our London Adventure – Pt 1

As anyone who has read my blog knows, Mummy and I do enjoy a good adventure.  We also like stage shows.  We do like food too.  So when we go off adventuring and it includes not only a show but yummy eats too, we feel like we have hit the jackpot! One such trip was…

The Two Brewers, Windsor

After our incredibly long walk down the aptly named “Long Walk” in Windsor Great Park, we were thrilled to see that literally next to the Castle was the pub we were booked into for lunch. The Two Brewers is absolutely one of those ‘local knowledge’ places. 

The Great Windsor Walk

One of the fabulous things about being an expat is that you get to meet a bunch of awesome people that you wouldn’t have if you had stayed in your home town.  Not only that, you tend to find serial expats are fairly like-minded and have a great sense of adventure. One such person is…
