Istanbul has long been on my places to visit list and it didn’t disappoint. Some of the most beautiful mosques I’ve ever seen (the Blue Mosque really does live up to the hype), amazing rooftop bars on every corner (seriously, there are so many more places in the world that need to capitalize on this) and delicious food everywhere (pistachio chocolate anyone? And who knew I’d love salty yogurt drinks – oh Ayran I do dream of you). We even managed to master saying ‘ thank you’ in Turkish, which is possibly the most difficult thank you I’ve had to learn – but I don’t think I’ll ever forget now!
Despite the fact that I injured my knee halfway through ski week (along with accidentally ending up on a black run on my second day and having to do a walk of shame for half the route, losing my ski pole on the chairlift and splitting my ski trousers – all in the same day I might add) – Zermatt was still a brilliant holiday. What’s there not to like when you get to spend your week in a ski lodge with a a private chef, apres ski parties and surroundings like this? I’m definitely not going to be winning any medals for skiing anytime soon but you know what, riding the gondolas all across the resort is amazingly fun.

The weekend trip in Bruges went by in a blur of excessive chocolate consumption. Besides the fact that you barely have to walk 5 steps before arriving at yet another far too enticing looking chocolate shop (and when in Rome, right?) Brugge is a wonderfully picturesque, cobblestoned medieval town.
So I live in London now. But I’ll save that for another post… I’m slowly getting around to editing holiday snaps, here’s a few taken from a last minute weekend away to Copenhagen.
