Kazimierz – Krakow’s Jewish Quarter

Kazimierez - a historical district on the southern side of Krakow has been home to the Jewish community of Krakow since the end of the 13th Century.  It is full of history, interesting and horrible both.

Krakow

I don't know how I ended up wanting to go to Krakow but I got it in my head I needed to go and let me tell you - I was not disappointed. Quite the opposite- It's one of my favourite places. I did a bit of research before I went but to be honest,... Continue Reading →

Autumn 2018

Autumn is my favourite time of year here in London (followed closely by Spring!). The weather is great, and the leaves are changing colours.

St. Albans

I was looking for an easy day trip out of town and landed on St. Albans - sadly I decided this on a Sunday and I think it is actually better to go on a Saturday as it has quite a good market I'm told. From St. Pancras it's only 20 miles away via ThamesLink.... Continue Reading →
