When I think of Penang I think of sticky childhood holidays, hanging with the grandma and extended family however the most distinct ones are the food memories - all the rich and delectable flavours that were just so exciting to eat in each bite. We recently visited Penang for a bit of a whirlwind trip and every meal (a dozen meals a day still counts as a balanced diet right?) was highly appreciated by the both of us and kept us wanting more. Read on to see where we indulged while in Penang!

We started the second half of our Santorini holiday at walking down to Ammoudi Bay. I must say it seemed like an endless set of stairs down toward the bay from the top of Oia! Just at the top of the the island off Oia, it's something that may be easily missed as you're exploring the magic of Oia, but it's always nice to get away from the famous cliffs of Santorini & get closer to the sea.

Lake Bled had always been one of our top places to go visit for the longest time and so we were so glad when everything aligned for us to go and visit Slovenia. Slovenia has probably been long one of the unassuming European countries to visit - it does border the more famous Italy, Austria and Croatia however don't underestimate what Slovenia has to offer - I'd say it's a real gem until everyone else stumbles upon it!
Lisbon, the sunny capital of Portugal was one of our first summer long weekend city breaks in Europe and remains one of our favourites. There's plenty of sun, culture, food & sightseeing to keep any groups of people busy in this charming city. Read on to see what else we got up to!
Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia and the often mispronounced city (correctly pronounced "Lyoob-lyah-nah") is a city small enough to really see and explore on foot but large enough for it to keep all who visit occupied and interested a weekend break, or as the start of a longer weekend!
