If you haven’t read already, I recently went on a fabulous cruise to Norway and this port was my absolute favourite stop of the week, the beautiful village of Geiranger. Geiranger is a small tourist village in Western Norway that will give you the perfect postcard picture of the Fjords. The picture really speaks for itself and doesn’t even do it’s breathtaking views justice.
One thing to note about Norway – the weather is unpredictable and completely contrasting in each area. After a beautiful day in Bergen, we arrived the following morning in a wet, grey Molde. We had no activities booked, although I’m not sure you’d see much from the view point with all those clouds, so really all we wanted to do was get off the ship to stretch our legs. On our little wander we found a beautiful Cathedral and a just as lovely flower shop.
Bergen is based on the South-West coast on Norway, surrounded by the fjords and mountains. As our cruise was in September, I wasn’t holding out much hope for the weather as Norway is a pretty wet and windy country (although still very beautiful) but to my surprise, we had full sunshine all day which made for amazing views from the high points and at one point I was even feeling a little hot.
At the end of August, I was lucky enough to set sail on my very first cruise to the Norwegian Fjords for a week on a ‘girls holiday’; when I say girls holiday, I mean we took my nan and her wheelchair. I was full of excitement and nerves as we prepared for the cruise as I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I’ve heard so much about the posh formal wear and tonnes of food that I didn’t know how to prepare for the week. Well let me tell you now, if I could summarise my cruise in five words it would be: food, alcohol, food, food, stairs.
Intu Lakeside have recently launched a ‘Very Important Blogger’ programme which allows Essex Bloggers to work closely with brands based at Lakeside, Thurrock. To celebrate the launch, I was invited by Voice Communications and Intu Lakeside to their #everyonesinvited weekend. Throughout the weekend, Intu Lakeside had celebrity performances from Reggie & Bollie, a book signing with Rylan Clark, free popcorn & candy floss as well as lots of other fun activities for all the family!
So I have just returned from the beautiful island on Cyprus. It is one of my favourite holiday destinations that offers culture, beaches, sunshine and plenty of food & cocktails. Rather than going all inclusive, self catering is always preferred as there are so many mouth watering restaurants available to try. Whilst I still have much of Cyprus, and Paphos in particular to explore, some of the restaurants there have provided the best food I have ever eaten.
I’m definitely not a style icon or fashion extraordinaire but this year I have found a few key pieces which I find really work for me that can be integrated into my wardrobe. I’m one of those people that once they find something they love, they will buy it in every single colour. Yep, that’s… Read More
I use the term ‘I’ve moved out’ very lightly when describing my situation as I still stop off at my parents house every weekday morning for breakfast and spend two nights sleeping there. Whilst they have ditched my bedroom and have moved me to the sofa bed upstairs, my ‘room’ has been transformed into a… Read More
On the 28th March, I was surprised by the sudden loss of a beautiful friend, Amy. Amy suffered from a heart attack at an age far too young for life to finish. There were no warnings, no signs, no time to say goodbye. I’m still not quite sure I have fully accepted that I’ll never… Read More
Ah, the world of Wanderlust is both terrible and exciting. Somedays, I love my little adult life in my new home, with a boyfriend, our very own dog and standard well-paying 9-5 jobs. Other days, I want to be as far away from here as possible. That’s OK though, because you don’t have to give… Read More
