A FEW OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS 1 // Early morning doggle walks. Especially if I happen to have miles and miles of sandy beach at my disposal! (Dipping your toes in the ocean optional but very much recommended!) 2 // The huge plates of super fresh melon and ham at Top Story, Cesenatico. 3 // Cruising around on the hotel bikes.

NEW BEGINNINGS It’s almost 2016! I know this is super annoying to hear but where on earth has this year gone?! I mean, they say time flies when you’re having fun and despite this year having it’s own set of challenges, I have, for the most part, been having fun.
