Trip to Parque Bicentenario

Last weekend we left it too late to go anywhere far from Santiago, just we chilled in Parque Bicentenario, Vitacura. If you’re new to Santiago, you need to check it out. It’s a huge park, with lovely views and lots of space. Maybe it’s me, but somehow it seems a little more chic than other parks in town. On the…

The most exciting opening in Santiago this year?

I wrote last year about my love of a beautiful, flower packed cafe in my hometown of Santiago. You can imagine my disappointment when a reader reached out to tell me it had closed its doors.

My son, Rafa, recently suffered a severe allergic attack. Until we know what caused it, he can’t go to nursery, so I’ve been watching him 24/7. The thing is, he isn’t sick and he needs to play. He needs to socialise with other kids and he needs to run off his energy. In a moment of desperation when we all…

Peekaboo: A play cafe in Santiago for kids with big imaginations (and …

When I first arrived in Chile I didn’t see the point of play cafes. The weather’s so nice here, so why stay cooped up indoors when the kids can be frolicking in the sunshine? Even Santiago winters are nothing compared to the UK. Mind you, sometimes I just need to wear my little soldiers out without having to haul my…

The best vegan health store in Santiago?

I’m 90% vegan, 80% plant based and 100% loving life here in Santiago, Chile. Up until recently I loved Santiago a little less. Grocery shopping here is rather a struggle, all the more if you’re vegan, on a special diet or living with an allergy. Last week I checked out a store recommended to me by several local and Expater friends…

Top tea rooms and cafés in York

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a tea obsessive. I’m actually a certified tea taster, for what that’s worth. I drink tea with friends and when enjoying time alone, to wake me up and to help me sleep. Needless to say, I’ve drunk my fair share of brews in my time here in York. Here are my top tearooms…
