Two weeks in Vietnam

Update: Vietnam has waved the visa requirements for British, Italian, Spanish, German and French nationals until 30 June 2016. The most daunting part of traveling for me is the planning bit because I never know where to start. How do you pack all that a country has to offer in just two weeks time? Even harder is…

Friday fave :: Druid St Market in Bermondsey

The London food market scene has a new player in town with the recent opening of Druid St Market in Bermondsey.
