This wasn’t out first visit and it won’t be our last. Even though we are based in Bath, we can call Moonlight Indian Restaurant our ‘local’ given the number of times we have been here, more so than our actual local curry house. We intend on doing a series over time, featuring the many delicious […]

On our way home after our visit to Durham on a Sunday morning, we stumbled upon this quaint seaside town called Saltburn-by-the-Sea. We didn’t exactly visit the town but just the Saltburn Beach. However, we quickly realised just how much the place has to offer had any of the restaurants and attractions been open.

Of all the wondrous sights to visit in London, The British Library is hardly top of anyone’s list unless you’re a true bibliophile. With that disclaimer out of the way, I must admit that the British Library is possibly one of the most impressive libraries anyone could visit ever. Not just because of its heft […]
