So I've been away from my keyboard because 2020 started off a lot more rough than I expected. When things get rough, Nat stays away from writing for some reason. Things are picking up now and you know what they say, when you hit rock bottom, or near it anyway, you can only go up. … Continue reading Thailand: Khao Lak
07 December 2019 Saturday Day 8: Our last full day in Japan. We made a brief stop at Les Initiés once more, where Florian picked up another Chaussons aux Pommes and a Financier. The financier had beautiful caramel notes from the burnt butter, and its edges had a lovely crust that held a moist, tender … Continue reading Japan: Tsukiji and Harajuku, Tokyo.
06 December 2019 Friday Day 7: Just a hop, skip and a jump away from our ryokan, we found this cute bakery, Les Initiés, on our first morning in Tokyo. Florian's eyes lit up at the beautiful crusts on freshly baked breads and the glossy shine on the viennoiserie. He was absolutely spoilt for choice … Continue reading Japan: Ginza and Shinjuku, Tokyo.
05 December 2019 Thursday Day 6: Around 6am the next morning, Florian and I were up and training it from Sapporo Station to New Chitose Airport. We purchased our tickets the night before to spare ourselves the potential stress of waiting in line and delaying ourselves. Still imprinted in my memory was the flavour of … Continue reading Japan: Shibuya, Tokyo.
04 December 2019 Wednesday Day 5: Our first morning in Sapporo and snow was still falling from the evening before. We didn't opt-in for hotel breakfast here so I had something light in our room while Florian slept in a little longer. When he was up, we made our way to Cafe Denmark for him … Continue reading Japan: Day Trip to Otaru.
02 December 2019 Monday Day 3: We woke up to a flurry of snow! But that soon turned into endless rain lasting the entire day. 😦 Again, our day began with a good breakfast. This time we opted for the Western meal. I requested two boiled eggs (I should have asked for half boiled!) while … Continue reading Japan: Furano to Sapporo!
Florian and I have been back just over a week from our final holiday of 2019. I'm really excited to leave some of this year behind and start 2020 on a high. After our miscarriage, Florian and I decided that we would spend more quality time together. On the most part, I think we've managed … Continue reading Japan: Furano, Hokkaido
So this was our much-anticipated dinner - Sühring. We arrived promptly at 7pm to a gorgeous glass house set amidst luscious greenery. It was like something out of a fairytale. Soft light, a gentle buzz of activity, and a warmth the exuded from its sleek, homely interior. If you look to the left of the … Continue reading Sühring, Bangkok.
It was nice starting the weekend with the boys. We began with breakfast at the main floor of our hotel where there was a big spread of food from various cuisines. We tried to eat enough to tide us through to our big dinner but after our mandatory massage, we whisked ourselves off to Hand … Continue reading Eat, Drink, Bangkok.
The Friday after we went to Bo.Lan, Lesley first had to settle some personal errands/life goals. So I spent the three hours traipsing around Bangkok walking first to Siam for a foot massage. You can't go to Bangkok and not indulge at least once in a good massage! Feet light as air, I floated over … Continue reading Bumming Around Bangkok.
