Travel // Sweden part 2, Lund and the Skissernas Museum…

I’ve finally found time to edit some more of my Swedish adventure.  In particular focusing on the City of Lund and the Skissernas Museum.  Lund is situated about 30 minutes drive North from Malmo.  It is a large University town and reminded me very much of Oxford, with it’s grand buildings, and bicycling students flocking the streets. On our little tour, Lund was our second overnight stop, staying at the aptly named The Grand Hotel.  Very Wes Anderson-esque in style,

Helsinki sits on almost the most southerly tip of Finland.  From

Travel // Nespresso at Cannes Festival…

There are many ‘stand-out’ moments in my blogging career, but nothing tops Cannes.  What a place, utterly magical, bonkers and beautiful in equal measures.  I was lucky to be invited by Nespresso to the Cannes Film Festival, to walk the red carpet and experience the glitz and glamour of this famous event.
