The front door of Fosse Farmhouse in Castle Combe.
Our recent weekend in Wiltshire brought us to this amazing and incredibly charming bed and breakfast in Castle Combe, the Fosse Farmhhouse. The photos I’ve seen of the house made me want to press fast forward to the weekend that we were to spend there, I couldn’t wait to see it for myself. I wanted to check if the photos were heavily photoshopped or if it’s truly that beautiful. The day before we

Longleat Safari Park – Not Just For Kids!

September 16, 2017
I was quite worried that The Greek Mister will be bored out of his wits when we go to Longleat during our weekend in Wiltshire. Based on my (not so extensive) research, it’s mostly family bloggers who are writing about this place and they kept talking about all the fantastic activities their children did while there. I don’t think The Greek Mister would be impressed by any of it. With a promise of a pin

September 12, 2017
View of Castle Combe from Bybrook.
The lovely weekend we spent in Wiltshire was a much needed retreat for The Greek Mister and myself. Although it was only 48 hours, it felt like we’ve spent a lot more days than that. I got confused of what day it was a couple of times while we were there because it truly felt like we’ve been whiling away our time in the beautiful surroundings of Wiltshire for a good whole week. Time stood still and the

The Painted Hall Ceiling Tour is a once-in-a-lifetime experience in every sense of the word. It’s not a marketing ploy to make you want to visit it but a fact as the next chance you’ll probably be able to do this is after a 100 years. So unless you’re planning to outlive everyone else and be a centenarian, you won’t have any other chance to do this but now. The Painted Hall considered as Lon

Restaurants in Richmond | Franco Manca

Franco Manca, Richmond Upon Thames - PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-100
For someone who claims as not being a fan of chain restaurants, I’ve been eating in a lot of them lately. What can I do? London’s dining scene is so diverse and so competitive that even chain restaurants need to make sure that they’re on top of their game so they won’t be overshadowed by other establishments. I used to runaway from chain restaurants like a plague (specially when I’m tr

Things To Do In London | Visit The Houses of Parliament

HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT- PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-107
One of the famous icons of the city of London is the beautiful edifice of the Houses of Parliament by the River Thames. It’s hard to miss since the Big Ben is directly attached to this building. I remember seeing it for the first time, the scene of the empty Westminster Bridge as the protagonist of the film 28 Days Later crosses it came to mind. It was 6am then on a Sunday so it was only myself and a few earl
