An October holiday | St Ives


Kathventures

“We’re here now,” Aaron muttered; glum, dejected, the coast of the postcard-ready town of St Ives spread before us, just like our holiday. “Don’t sound too happy about it,” I said. Or something similar. Whilst suppressing the bubbling urge to tell him off. Or at least roll my eyes. “It’s just,” Aaron explained, not for […]

An inebriated nation, a united nation


Kathventures

In the UK, nothing breeds togetherness like binge-drinking. Drinking pint after pint of golden lager to dilute the tendencies we have to be a bit up-tight and so well-mannered that we’re actually a bit rude. Put simply, we’re a nation of suppressed, stoic individuals who need a beer to lighten up. Except that we’re so […]

Dear Dublin | Day Two


Kathventures

Dear Dublin, After a glorious day one that not only lived up to my expectations, but dare I say it, exceeded them, we woke up ready to see a whole new side of Dublin. After our first trip to Dublin, I realised our favourite city had even more to offer than we already had the […]

Dear Dublin | Day One


Kathventures

Dear Dublin, Although nearly a month since we visited, I am still missing my favourite place in the entire world. Dublin. The city that if you even dare ask Aaron and I about, you will regret it. It’s like an ex-boyfriend you just can’t move on from. It’s a love affair I’ll be revisiting for […]

How to Revisit a City


Kathventures

Next week I am heading back to my favourite place in the world… Dublin! My boyfriend and I decided to book a last minute, birthday-themed trip to Dublin since we’d both booked a few days off of work. I’ve been waiting to head back for over two years; ever since we stepped off of the […]

Sunday the Sixth


Kathventures

Sunday the sixth of January allowed me a sleep in. When I pulled aside my duvet, shortly followed by my curtain, a sunny morning beckoned me beyond my window. So I showered, pulled on my new favourite jumper and painted my eyes sparkly. I sat my camera on my shoulder and tied up my new […]

Three Small Changes


Kathventures

As a lover of romance fiction (specifically Nicholas Sparks’s, of course), I definitely don’t mind the New Year romanticising some of us bathe in once we’ve said cheers and tidied away our Christmas presents. As a to-do list writer, I like having goals to work towards. For this reason, I am a New Year’s resolutioner […]

A Weekend in the City


Kathventures

Last weekend, Aaron and I had a booked-well-in-advance rarity: a weekend together. We stepped onto the train and towards the unknown; a whole Saturday in each other’s company with three-for-one-pound sweets and sweet chilli crisps in our bags. It was already too much… I slept the whole way. As soon as we arrived at London […]

The Paphos City Guide | Food and Drink


Kathventures

It’s now been just over a week since Aaron and I arrived back from what we’ve dubbed as our favourite summer holiday yet. We visited the awesome Paphos, a city that sits on the southwest coast of Cyprus. The city of meze, rocky seas and KEO (the local beer that we loved so much we […]

The Mini Edinburgh City Guide


Kathventures

Edinburgh, it’s safe to say, stole my heart. It’s a grand but cosy, loud but content city that is easy to get lost in. Thankfully, though, it’s even easier to find a nice beer. The streets are hugged by buildings that exhale the city’s rich history and charming culture. If you’ve not been to Edinburgh […]
