Suitcase. Provence: Fontaine De Vaucluse, L'Isle Sur La Sorgue & Eygalieres

With quiet sadness, I woke to my last day in stunning Provence. I honestly think you could easily pack up your life and spend 3-6 months living here. I know I could. It really is a region that celebrates all of life's little pleasures; good food, great wine, rendezvous with friends, expansive rolling hills... I would say Provence is good for the soul.

Suitcase. Provence: St Saturnin Les Apt, Roussillon & Goult

Day three arrived and I headed east to St Saturnin Les Apt to check out their local market. This old town is brimming with personality; like a wise grandparent who, despite their age, still oozes style.

Suitcase. Provence: Bonnieux, Lacoste, Oppede & Menerbes

Should you find yourself in Provence, then you simply must get a car. There is so much ground to cover, so many towns to visit, you'd be remiss not to take full advantage. The great thing about the region is that each of the towns are relatively close to each other but they all boast their own personality.

Suitcase. Provence: Le Mas Des Etoiles, Gordes

It is rare that you can travel to a country on the other side of the world and yet still feel as though you are being welcomed by family. Well. It happened to me in Provence.

Rewind to last week and my adventure began in Avignon. After collecting my hire car I hit the winding country roads, heading for a spot on the outskirts of Gordes - Le Mas Des Etoiles. My home for the week.

Suitcase. Upton House & Garden, Warwickshire

Should you find yourself in Warwickshire anytime soon, then I have a place to share!... It's full of history, offers a delightful tearoom and did I mention how beautiful it is?...

One Day. A London Love Affair

I paused on the first sentence of this blog post for a long time before I started writing it. Why? Because it's about London, and like all things you really, truly care about, it's always hard to express your feelings with mere words. My love affair with this city is no different.

Suitcase. A Whitstable Weekend

Let's be honest. We're pretty spoilt for beaches in Australia but that didn't mean I didn't snap up the opportunity to head to the British seaside whilst I'm here. Having already done the southern coast around Brighton, this time a trip out to the east was in order. Where? Whistable of course!

Suitcase. Coppa Club + London Eye

After crashing hard and fast due to lack of sleep on my first day in town, by the next morning I was chomping at the bit to get out and explore my old stomping ground. The sense of familiarity even after being away a year is so incredibly overwhelming for me here in London. It really does feel like no time has passed at all. That I never left. That I still live here. That all is just as it was before.

That obviously means I'm home which is a comforting feeling.
