With summer in full swing, there's nothing I look forward to more than taking a weekend trip to the shore. A two-day getaway is the perfect way to recoup and recharge after a hectic workweek! If you're planning your own seaside escape, kick travel stress to the curb with a well-packed travel...

So the hotel gets an amazing five stars from me, I have to admit it wasn't the best hotel in Leeds or the cheapest and technically it is three star in hotel circles, but for a weekend away shopping and exploring Leeds it was perfect. The room was a good size, I even got rubber ducks in the...

We had planned an indulgent weekend away in the Philippines as our first escape from Hong Kong since we moved here. My excitement was uncontainable at the thought of sneaking out of the cold, grey city and reclining on a beach with nothing to distract me apart from the gentle noise of the...

All I want to do this weekend is guffaw at back to back episodes and then awkwardly replicate Buster's behaviour when forced to socially interact.

Some pictures from this weekend. My fantasies of lying in the sunshine and reading were slightly scarpered by chilly weather most of the weekend but the sun came back out yesterday just in time for a walk along the River Tyne between Prudhoe and Wynam before going on to Newcastle. Beware of...
