Posing in Pisa!

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Pisa: staying for only one night, I’d imagined a day whipping around the obvious sites, grabbing a picture of me pushing up the Leaning Tower, and then heading off the next day for Florence. I was worried, away from the tourist scrum, that the city might be a little disappointing. Our brief 24 hours there, however, turned out…

Silver Island Yoga

Floating in the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea is Silver Island.  The island looks like a postcard: all shimmering olive trees, white washed buildings and pebble beaches. It’s quiet (aside from the sound of the odd rowdy chicken), peaceful and secluded. A perfect place, really, for a yoga retreat. Back in March, I was grumpy.

Exploring Saint Petersburg’s cafe culture

Before arriving in Saint Petersburg, we hadn’t given much thought to the food that we would find there. We’d read that there was plenty of potato and meat (pickled cabbage, anyone?) but not much else. Once we arrived, however, we were wowed by the number of independent, quirky and cosy cafes , each offering  an enormous range of delicious and varied food. Below are our favourite…

A Long Weekend in Saint Petersburg

Russia is a place we’ve always wanted to visit. Maybe we’ve watched ‘Dr Zhivago’ a few too many times, but for us, Russia has always represented vast snowy landscapes; glamorous ladies dripping in diamonds; opulent cities; graceful ballet dancers and mysterious Russian fairy tales. Of course, this version excludes an awful lot of tension, history and international relations, which we were most definitely mindful of when planning…
