New Year, new me…yeah, yeah….but who doesn’t love ice cream!?

How would you describe perfect ice cream? Easy, delicious and guilt free. This is how I describe my ice cream. It’s healthy and I’m sure it will satisfy your sweet tooth. And  you will be able to give yourself a huge tick on the New Year’s resolutions list. What are you waiting for? (more…)

Michaelmas Fair, Burton Agnes Hall

I know what you think. What? Christmas? It’s so yesterday! Well, it depends how you look at it. It’s history or something to look forward to as the festive season is less that 363 days away! At the very end of October we visited Burton Agnes Hall to embrace the festive spirit with a plethora of autumn and winter decorations, toys and delicacies.

Autumn in Gdansk: Photo Diary

Gdansk is always full of charm. No matter when you visit this beautiful city. At the end of October, we spent a day wandering in Old Town, eating pierogi and soaking in the atmosphere of autumnal Gdansk. Misty and foggy mornings. Short bursts of afternoon sunshine. The darkness of skies. Enjoy!img_5381 img_5288

Photo diary: Bialystok, Poland

Recently, I have read somewhere that Bialystok is one of the best cities to choose for your retirement.

Well, my retirement is still a long way off, however having spent a couple of days in Bialystok I can see why this place might be appealing to those seeking a perfect place to relax. Bialystok is safe, quiet and multicultural where the west and east meet. Ludwik Zamenhof, the creator of the international language of Esperanto was born and worked here. Being a host of many cultures and religions for many years means that Bialystok offers a mosaic of cuisines, faiths, languages and cultural experiences that are worth travelling for just a little bit further east.


Moja emerytura nie jest jeszcze tak blisko, jednak po spędzeniu kilku dni w Białystoku wiem już czemu to jest on idealnym miejscem do relaksu. Bialystok jest bezpieczny, spokojny i wielokulturowy, gdzie zachód spotyka się ze wschodem. Ludwik Zamenhof, twórca międzynarodowego języka Esperanto, urodził się i pracował w Białymstoku. Gospodarz wielu kultur i religii, Białystok oferuje mozaikę kuchni, wiar, języków i doświadczeń na scenie kulturowej, dla których warto udać się jeszcze bardziej na wschód. (more…)

Weekend away: Falcon Manor

The Yorkshire Dales are charming- always.

In a much needed break, one Friday afternoon in July we popped in a car and headed towards the Yorkshire Dales. Our home for two nights was Falcon Manor (www.falconmanor.co.uk) which describes itself as a country house hotel. And it did live up to this expectation. We were welcomed by a roaring fire (yes, it was July…and 9 degrees at one point) and a grand staircase leading to our cosy bedroom with a four poster bed.


W poszukiwaniu małej przerwy od rzeczywistości, pewnego piątkowego lipcowego popołudnia, skierowaliśmy się do Yorkshire Dales. Naszym domem przez dwie noce był Falcon Manor (www.falconmanor.co.uk)- hotel, dom na wsi. Powitał nas kominek (tak, lipiec…i 9 stopni!) i ogromne schody, które zaprowadziły nas do naszego pokoju.
