Winter family break in Andalo, Trentino

The last time I hurtled down a snowy mountain on a pair of skis I was a carefree teenager. School ski trips to France and Austria firmly imprinted the thrill of the piste in my adventure DNA. Similarly a snowboard hasn’t graced the feet of Mr S since he left Switzerland nearly 15 years ago.

Stockholm: 5 places to take your taste buds

Stockholm is a haven for foodies. I quickly discovered there is certainly more to it than Swedish meatballs! The Swedes also take dining very seriously with 11 Michelin stars to the city’s name.

Pan Indian dining: Baluchi at The LaLit London

Pan Indian dining: Baluchi at The LaLit London

Mr S and I were invited to celebrate the first anniversary of The LaLit London near Tower Bridge. It’s the luxury hotel’s first foray outside India and housed in a Grade II listed building, once home to St Olave’s Grammar school. The sympathetic and wonderful restoration of the 180 year old property charms and delights.
