Pieminister @ St Nicks

Good times with pies… Featuring on several festivals, markets and pubs across London and the South West, Pieminister was born in Bristol and therefore deserved a little tasting. Sarah and I were walking around St Nicholas Market and suddenly got mouth-watering hungry passing by the Pieminister booth. A simple pie served with mash & gravy…

Not your usual coffee bar: Playground Coffee House

A place where you can play games while drinking amazing coffee. Not the only one in Bristol, so I realised later, but a great concept nonetheless. The extra credits are for asking you which taste you like before serving you their perfect roasted coffees.

Hart’s Bakery

Tucked away in an arch just underneath Temple Meads station in Bristol, this little bakery is a true gem. Whether you’re just looking for some great coffee or in the mood for some handmade pastries, when in the neighbourhood, make sure to step inside! It’s location is convenient when arriving or leaving the city, just a…

Brrrristol Baby!

When my close friend Sarah decided to move from vibrant London to Bristol, I must admit I had to google map the place. Visiting each other as much as possible, a short break in Bristol was promptly added to my list. Not exactly knowing what to expect and everything but ready, off I went. Due…

The Monkey Hut

Take a 200m deep crater lake surrounded by a lush forest, add some howling monkeys, a dock, some more floating docks (aka “wooden islands”), toys (kayaks, tubes, hammocks,..) – not to forget the amazing sunrise – and you’ll get the most relaxed version of… well, me! Even though meeting great people is one of my…

I know your type

That’s what he said, while showing us to our room. Funny how four little words can swipe a girl off her feet like that. The next words that did the trick were “you look beautiful in the morning”, baring in mind that my right eye was swollen big time thanks to 3 mosquito’s who bit my tiny…

Flying like Superman & Swinging like Tarzan

Our main (& only) drive to visit Monteverde was doing the canopy tour. So many operators will offer you an exciting experience, I’m sure. But when we do it, we do it right. So we decided to go for 100% Aventura, the one with the longest zipline in Latin America. Flying above the rain forest, 1590…
