Two Days in Milos, Cyclades, Greece

After researching the many, many islands of the Cyclades in Greece, Milos was the island I was most excited to visit. The otherworldly beaches and historic sites were a big draw, as was the fact that it’s not yet quite as popular a destination as Santorini or Mykonos. After reading…

9 Days in the Cyclades, Greece – Milos, Naxos and Mykonos Itinerary

After a year of living in London, we learned that a sun-filled beach trip (or two) is necessary to surviving grey London summers (and winters… and autumns… and springs…). With time to take a longer trip at the end of September, Greece and the Cyclades seemed the perfect destination for…

Life in London: September and October 2018

Time is flying! I say that every month, but lately it’s been madness how quickly the days and weeks pass. September and October went by so fast, I didn’t even manage to write a September post! September marked two years since we moved to London (you can read about my…
