Hello, I’m back! It’s been nearly 6 weeks since my last blogpost but for good reason, I’ve been very busy…
The start of October was taken up with birthday surprises and treats (I have definitely been spoiled). Then I was off for the big trip to visit big sistas Keeks in New Zealand and Biff in Singapore.
I’ve just about shaken the jetlag and feeling almost back to normal.
The past month has been filled with sooooo much good food and drink. I’ll need to do some specific posts on a couple of highlights (namely the Peat Inn where Josh took me for my birthday and Raffles in Singapore for brunch, treated by Biff).
In the meantime here’s a little taster of the amazing food I’ve been enjoying…
Beautiful Michelin star dinner at the Peat Inn in Scotland
Brunch in New Zealand (Lake Taupo)
Lovely lamb and beef shank dinner in New Zealand (Rotorua)
Incredible chilli crab in Singapore
Delicious desserts in Singapore (top of Marina Bay Sands)
Street food in Singapore
This is just the tip of the iceberg I’ve been so incredibly lucky to have experienced so much in the past 6 weeks. 2016 has been a good year!!
Carrying on with my work travel series I’m recently back from a work trip to Sweden and Copenhagen. My trips last year covered Italy, Portugal and Spain which were all brilliant, but it was really nice for me to get the opportunity to go to Scandinavia where I’ve never been before.
Scandinavia is a fantastic place for seafood and I managed to try some delicious salmon, char and fish eggs while I was there. We went to a great little restaurant Hambergs Fisk in Uppsala which I’d definitely recommend.
In Copenhagen I had uhhhmazing thinly sliced duck with dark cherries. Not a typically Scandinavian dish but excellent nonetheless.
And a trip to Denmark isn’t complete without a Danish pastry…or three!!
I was really impressed with both Uppsala and Copenhagen. There was so much to see and the architecture was so interesting. We took in some beautiful botanic gardens, lovely canals and of course a visit to the Little Mermaid!
I packed my gym stuff with great intentions but lack of time and tiredness from the travelling prevented me from unpacking it. We did manage to keep up the steps while we’re there as we were both in agreement that walking is the best way to take in a city.
