Sicily Part One

October 8, 2019
Sicily

We finally left the country! After a fair few staycations, Sam and I decided to go abroad over summer and picked Palermo, Sicily as our destination. Both of us have been to Italy before but never Sicily and with it being but a stone's throw away we thought it'd be an ideal place for our first holiday (abroad) together.   The first mission, when we got into the Airbnb, was…

February 8, 2019

So Sam turned twenty-five, though I keep being mean and rounding him up to thirty, and for his birthday we went away to Norwich. A place he's always wanted to visit. I'll admit I had no idea what to expect, I'd heard it was pretty but didn't know anything beyond that. Safe to say we both absolutely loved the city and plan on going again. I'd booked us…
