Seychellois Food at Vinn Goute

I'm eating around the world without leaving London and this week it's Seychellois food from Vinn Goute. Vinn Goute is a catering company that sets up shop at several festivals, outdoor events and markets. ( Apparently they are trading at the Kerb markets) I caught them at the Battersea Power of Summer film festival last summer. (Yes, sorry, I pre-ate)

To Cruise or Not to Cruise?

I never thought I'd say this, but I've just come back from a Carnival cruise in the Caribbean. I'd probably never gone on one if it hadn't been for my friend's wedding, but I have to say I had a fab week. However, to say that I'm now a cruise convert is stretching it a bit. So here's me weighing the pros against the cons.

What I liked:

The fact that you visit three or more countries in one trip. On this occasion we started in the USA and stopped off in Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Mexico.

South African Food at Bunnychow

I'm eating around the world without leaving London and this week I had South African food at Bunnychow. Bunnychow doesn't sell rabbit stews or anything containing bunnies at all. Bunnies at Bunnychow are bready bowls. Kind of like a sandwich, but different.

My Favourite Caribbean Islands

I'm currently on a cruise in the Caribbean. Yep, that's right, a cruise. Not something I thought I'd ever do, but one of my good friend's wedding is what brought me here. 

Now since I'm writing this pre-cruise and I read that internet doesn't come cheap on a Carnival ship, I thought I'd do a little reminiscing about previous Caribbean trips. So here are my favourite Caribbean Islands.

St Maarten

Not only is this island half Dutch and the only place in the world where Holland borders France, this islands has the coolest beach ever. Maho beach is located at the top end of the island's Juliana airport, making waves (literally) for beach goers. They go crazy every time a plane comes in to land, but the fun really kicks off when a plane is taking off. The jet stream it blasts across the sand, attracts some people (yes, me as well) to hold on to the fence behind it and literally be blown away by the sheer force.

Sky Garden at the Walkie Talkie

London is way up there on the list of cities with green spaces. And now it even has one in the sky. The top floor of the building that Londoners have come to know as the Walkie Talkie has a sky garden.

Cameroonian Pancakes at Maloko

I'm eating around the world without leaving London and this week I had Cameroonian pancakes at Maloko in Camberwell. Okay, pancakes doesn't sound like an exotic African dish, but its website stated that their pancakes have a Cameroonian twist.

Russel-Cotes Museum in Bournemouth

Walking on the beach in England in February, could potentially turn into a finger numbing and sand stormy experience. So when my friend and I attempted to take a walk on the beach in Bournemouth last week, we were happy to find the Russel-Cotes Museum sitting right on the beach.

Chocolate Boutique Hotel in Bournemouth

What could be better than a girlie weekend at the coast in Bournemouth? A girlie weekend at the coast at the Chocolate Boutique Hotel in Bournemouth. Yes, that's right, last weekend my friend and I stayed at a hotel where chocolate was omnipresent.

Congolese Food at The Bash

I'm eating around the world without leaving London and this week I headed to Tottenham for Congolese food at the Bash.

The Bash or Chez Bash, which is what it said on the window sign, is located on busy Green Road. Inside it was just as busy. Not so much in terms of people, more in terms of stuff.

The Unexpected Benefits of Blogging

Since I started a couple of years ago, a lot of things have changed. I've met a lot of new people. I've learned lots about SEO, Social Media and content marketing, I've been invited to some fab events and trips, I've finally found a reason to start taking pictures again on my holidays. But the main thing that has changed is it that in my spare time, I now have a reason to switch off the TV and get my arse off my couch and explore this wonderful city I live in.
