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…

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…

“He Named Me Malala”, Netflix

In a break from my normal endless stream of trashy TV (which reminds me, I have a lot of Dynasty to catch up on!), I found myself strangely drawn to a documentary about Malala Yousefzai. A couple of years ago I was in an Uber on my way to RAK and the normal ‘where are…

Sunshine Taxi Ride

One of the major downsides to Dubai is the taxi drivers.  Not all of them, but a fairly large amount.  They drive terribly, are grouchy and rude, are sexist, smell bad… the list just goes on and on.  I’ve written about those journeys a number of times. Every now and again though you get an…

Dirty Little Secret

It’s about food, of course, before you get all concerned about what you are about to read!! Actually, I think it’s more of a guilty pleasure but whatever. This is the Al Reef Lebanese Bakery on Al Wasl Road.  It’s open 24/7, just as an FYI!

Backyard Movies at the Steigenberger Hotel, Business Bay

Waaaaay back in January I was scrolling through Facebook when an interesting event caught my eye.  The Steigenberger Hotel was doing ourdoor movies, in a bar/restaurant called The Backyard. I love watching movies under the stars so I phoned (ok, that’s a lie… I whatsapp’d) Carla to see if she would mind moving our Ladies…
