How to Avoid Hefty Check-in Fees


Since a certain British full service airline decided to change their loyalty scheme, I have found myself flying a lot more on a certain British low cost airline lately. And with that, I seriously had to adapt my packing habits in order to avoid those hefty check-in fees.

Where I was used to bringing along crap like a laptop, a giant ass purse and checking in my little Samsonite trolley bag without incurring any additional costs, I now have to give a lot more time and thought into packing for a holiday. I had to come to terms with the fact that I could no longer bring 7 pairs of shoes, 14 outfits and a beauty case on my week's holiday to the sun. Hard times.

But I'm a fast learner and after a few of these low cost flights, I have come up with a few handy tricks that I would love to share with you.

Things to do in Essaouira



Things to do in Essaouira

I love a good beachy holiday, but maybe not one that involves packed beaches, towel reserved loungers and holiday reps. Essaouira is none of that. I can totally recommend a chilled out week in this Moroccan seaside town and if you need a bit of inspiration here are some things to do in Essaouira.

Indonesian Food at Ayam Happy


Frankly, I'd been eyeing these pop-up guys for a while and last Friday I finally caught them at the Shuffle Festival at Hackney Cemetery Park.

The location was pretty original, I mean who ever has dinner around Victorian tombs and gravestones? FYI, Hackney Cemetery Park is one of the seven historic Victorian cemeteries that are dotted around this city.

The restaurant which was there for a fortnight, was as pop-up as can be. It was a construction of metal poles and wooden planks and there was more seating on top of what looked like a barn. There was a bar in said barn and the food was cooked up at a food stall, which was also serving food to bar visitors.

But we had booked a table for a three course dinner.

A Coastal Walk from Ramsgate to Margate


Apparently Margate is hippifying, or at least that is what the media is suggesting. From friends I hadn't really heard many good stuff about this coastal town, so I decided to find out for myself and went on a coastal walk from Ramsgate to Margate. With my mom.
