As I prepare to make my first festive trip to Copenhagen, instead of turning to my usual travel guides and blogs for inspiration, this time I’ve been reading a recipe book.

With a Christmas trip to Copenhagen now booked it’s safe to say we’ll be celebrating Scandi-style in our house this year.

The Little Swedish Kitchen – My chat with Rachel Khoo

27th July 2018

Celebrating my 40th birthday in Oslo

23rd March 2018


I’m just going to come straight out and say it, we had a fantastic time in Oslo last weekend celebrating my 40th birthday.

I didn’t want this post to be just the usual list of what to see, do or eat when spending 48 hours or so in a new city. For one, far better bloggers than me have already done this, and secondly, we travelled with our two year old son which rather limits how much you can realistically achieve and take blog-worthy photos of!
