Brunch at the Taj Connemara

While in Chennai, we stayed at the amazing Taj Connemara and I felt that the Sunday brunch deserved its very own blog post.

The Windy City

After finishing at camp, we drove back from Wisconsin to Chicago (getting lost again of course) and settled into the boarding school for one last night.  After deciding that we wanted to go out for a nice meal, we headed out in our little school bus in search of somewhere to eat.  Unfortunately, all we could… Continue reading The Windy City

So I realise that things have been incredibly quiet over the past 3 months of summer from the blogging front, sorry about that!  I have been doing something called Camp America which some of you will be very familiar with and others, not so much.  It is a scheme to get people in touch with… Continue reading Camp America
