Summer of Sussex – Fishbourne Roman Palace

Our first trip on our Summer of Sussex tour begins with a Roman palace! Who would have thought that set in the English countryside of Sussex that there would be the largest residential Roman building found in the UK! Sure, lots of people know the Romans conquered ancient Britain but it is still a bit unreal that they made such a home base in Sussex.  One of the best things about Fishbourne Roman Palace, aside from it being huge, is… View Post

Kicking off The Summer of Sussex

2019 marks the first year that we have not had a mid-summer trip in a really long time. 2015 saw us head to Budapest, 2016 was spent in Canada, 2017 was back to Budapest and Siofok plus Geneva and 2018 saw us head to Ireland.

2017 Review – What a year it was!

We did a lot in 2017 and boy can I feel it now. It’s probably the first year I haven’t got frustrated about where we are going next or have time for the wanderlust bug to really hit as there was always something around the corner. Which I appreciate makes us very very lucky!! I’ve still got some content to come around our amazing safari in Tanzania as well!  It’s been hard to narrow down our favourites of this year… View Post
