After New Year’s a more than tempting ‘One’s On Us’ offer popped up on Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants and having eaten at Ramsay’s restaurants before we were more than tempted to try it out. Due to a limited amount of time in January, we researched all of the One’s On Us Menus and decided to go with Heddon Street Kitchen & Union Street Cafe.
Before I continue, I would like to point out we have previously eaten at London House, which was absolutely amazing and later at Maze Grill, which I found rather average at most. Nevertheless, I was really excited to visit Heddon Street Kitchen.

We are currently holidaying before we start work in Athens, where we have moved exactly a month ago – so far, we are loving it! The time slowed down, the fuel prices went up, it’s always sunny and the food is great! We also have our own flat for the first time ever after 2 years of living together and not having to share anything with anyone but each other is AMAZING! 🙂 <3
The time has come for us to leave our summer coats behind and get excited about our future adventures, as we have decided to move out of London and chase the dream of living in another country.
Over the years in London I have seen many people come and go. Whether it was their visa that expired or they wanted to travel or simply experience something else, they always write an amazing “leaving London” Facebook post. I always admired these and I can honestly say I have had a masterpiece or two crafted in my mind when waiting for the Uber to arrive at 3am after having our last night out in London. But suddenly I wake up and unlike what I thought, I can’t remember a word. 🙂
It was 2 years ago when I was contemplating whether to live in Barcelona or London – clearly, London won. Not because of it’s beauty, or it’s energy or it’s people, but simply because of it’s language – being born in a small country such as Slovenia, I wanted to perfect my English as it seems to be very much needed in nowadays world. Needless to say it went horribly wrong, as I now own the dreadful Aussie accent. Looking back, I would never change my decision – because it’s where I met Dave. However, Barcelona remains to be my love, mi amor. 🙂
First of all – million and one apologies. I was really looking forward to posting this article, however I was dragged to see Batman v Superman. I am not getting into an argument again, but for me, that was 3 hours of my life I am never getting back (seriously, don’t bother spending your time and money on this). After that, we basically had to do a bit of admin and pack and then we were off to Amsterdam and then later Barcelona. We (*khm* he *khm*) thought it would be a brilliant idea not to take my laptop, but take the Mac instead. Of course the idea was bestonever, seeing it was made in the stone age, doesn’t read my phone, doesn’t read my camera and has a non functioning screen (literally). 😀
It’s our last day of work and we are heading to Amsterdam and Barcelona in 2 days – super excited. B-) I will try to post as much as I can, but it all comes down to wi-fi. If I don’t get to post anything. I’m sure I’ll post something on Instagram or Facebook. You can now just click on the button on top right corner or under “social me” and it will take you there. There is also an Instagram feed on the right side of the page. 🙂
But before that it’s Ios time (and not the operating system)! 🙂
I am having a cup of tea while waiting for my laptop to turn on. It seems lately the sky has been covered in a thick blanket of fog. The air is cool and crisp on this very day and it takes me back to my first night in London. I take another sip of tea and it transports me to another place – I quickly realized I have underestimated the cold in England as it crept under my clothes, spreading across my skin. My teeth were gently chattering and my hands were shaking trying to hold on to the old Samsung phone that was clearly leading me to the wrong address. Not long after realizing that the battery died. I wrapped my thin coat around me tighter and looked at a printed sheet with a map on it. ‘Ok, I can do this’ I remember saying to myself. And not long after, I made it.
In December 2015, more specifically on 24th and 25th of December we decided to go on a trip to Salzburg with my brother and sister in law. We promised to ourselves that when we go to Slovenia for a longer period of time, we will also try to travel around as it is such a convenient starting point with so many options (Vienna, Budapest, Venice, Zagreb, Tuscany…). 🙂
We usually wouldn’t travel on Christmas and spend it with family, but unfortunately that was the only way all four of us could go on a trip together, seeing we all had to adjust our time off. One thing we were not aware of – Austrians take their National Holidays seriously. And when I say seriously, I mean everything is closed.
