Weekend In Wiltshire | And A Cotswolds Village Hopping Itinerary

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

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

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

Things I Learned After Living In London For A Year

August 16, 2017
London Eye, PinayFlyingHigh.com
Exactly one year ago today, The Greek Mister and myself took a flight out of the Middle East which was our home for 9 years to go to the greener pastures of London (quite literally). Whenever we’re reminded about it, we’ll both agree that it was the best decision we’ve ever made. Don’t get me wrong, we did enjoy our 9-year stint in the Middle East but the reality is, it’s not a forever

If you’re a tourist and you think about London, the Westminster area immediately comes to mind – Big Ben, the London Eye and Westminster Abbey. Notting Hill will come as a close second specially if you’re a fan of Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant. Then maybe the shopping strip of Oxford, theaters of West End and possibly Hyde Park too. I may be wrong but my point is, when you think of London you alway
