Cornwall has always been a rather mysterious place for me. For years, I've heard friends talk about their summers in Newquay, while I flew back to the USA to enjoy the warmer months, with guaranteed sunshine, alongside my family. Then, two years ago I was handed a book that, well, changed...

My first visit to Babington House was organised in the form of a celebration. For nearly a quarter of a century, Babington has acted as a getaway in the countryside for people all over the globe. How I've managed not to make it for a weekend out here, after 16 years of living in London, I'll...

The drive-thru delivers, with minimal wait time, for hungry travellers. But, I do believe you'll prefer stepping inside Mollie's Diner, to get the full experience. Again modelled on a 1950's Americana vibe, the diner was my favourite part of this whole getaway. For the opening night, the...

FFG Travel Bite: Ice Cream at the Scoop Deck, Wells, Maine When my grandmother was younger, she would refuse to leave the beach without stopping at the Scoop Deck in Wells Maine. The habit seems to have been passed down through the generations as being at the beach house without ice cream is...

FFG Travel Diary: Charming small town living in Port Royal, South Carolina Ever since my parents moved down to South Carolina three years ago, I have been obsessed with a the small neighboring town of Port Royal. This is a magical place where small town charm has remained intact...

FFG Travels: Four Seasons Koh Samui, Thailand For my last three days in Thailand with Pandora, we called the Four Seasons Koh Samui home. Although I have to be honest and admit that not even in my wildest dreams had I thought that any holiday home I'd ever dream of owning would look like...

I must tell you that I had high expectations for Ocean House. Some might say they were almost unrealistic. I have stalked this hotel for some time. So, the inner travel cynic in me was ready to be disappointed. I thought something had to be off. It was all too good to be true. Hard as I...
