Namaste! While we sit here in Pushkar killing some time before an overnight bus to Jaisalmer, we've been reflecting on the last couple of weeks and what we've learnt against what we were expecting. Now, I am by no means claiming to be a nomad or professional 'traveller' (my newly bargained travel pants are for … Continue reading Some Do’s and Don’ts for India
One more journey, another early start and a couple of sicks later and we arrived at our 5th stop in India; Jaipur. As soon as we left the station we immediately felt much more positive about Jaipur than any of the cities so far. Firstly, the just the air in Jaipur seemed slightly cleaner and … Continue reading Jaipur – An Indian Wedding!
Disclaimer - late again, currently in Jaipur! Get ready for a quick catch up... Things rather went quite quickly downhill after the last blog was posted. It was written while we waited for a lift via tuk-tuk to the station at Varanasi where we had a train booked at 6.15pm to take us to Agra, … Continue reading Agra…25 hours later
Following quickly on from the latest blog, we arrived at a station just outside Varanasi at around 10am. My first experience of a sleeper train wasn't bad! We were in a carriage which had air conditioning and a 3-tier bunk bed, so it wasn't exactly spacious but I didn't feel like I had strangers breathing … Continue reading Varanasi
Disclaimer - we're actually in Varanasi now, delayed posting due to long train journey and absent wifi. We touched down in Delhi after a smooth flight at around 11.15 India time with a rough total of 7 hours sleep between us (guess who enjoyed most of them)... Contrary to the belief of the check-in staff … Continue reading First stop, Delhi
So here we are. 2 years worth of fantasising and planning and after many-a-weepy goodbye we are sat on the plane at Heathrow (with heaps of time to spare of course), ready to fly to India. What started with a drunken conversation in Borough Market in 2015 is finally a reality, and as predicted, it … Continue reading And we’re off!
For all my loyal and avid Date Night Review fans out there, I imagine you'll have been bursting with joy and anticipation when you checked back for some date-spiration only to find that the whole website has been given a facelift. Here's the thing though. This cheeky little colour scheme and layout change is in … Continue reading The Date Night Review is going abroad…
As anyone who knows me will know, I have an eclectic choice in music. Some would argue that when I say eclectic, I mean sh*t. But you know, each to their own. My playlist might jump from Disney to deep house, and I may choose which headline act at Glastonbury to go to according to … Continue reading My Top Live Music Venues
It's here! The most anticipated event of the year is upon us. A time of celebrations and endless love. Some call it the week of dreams, others call it...my birthday week. That's right, JESSTIVAL 2017 started on Monday and takes us all the way through to the weekend where there'll ever so much drinking and … Continue reading Immersive Dates
Guess who’s baaack! After a couple of weeks off, I’m pleased to say that I’m back in the date night review game with a reconstructed knee and a handful of strong painkillers. This time, we ventured down to the land of yummy mummies and handbag sized dogs which is otherwise known as Northcote Road, Clapham … Continue reading The Pottery Cafe
