Explores: Portmeirion, Gwynedd

Last week my husband, the boys and the bump/I went to West and North Wales on a Sun holiday, staying in Haven sites at Pwllheli and Prestatyn. On the Saturday (13th) it was Mr Lizzie.Eats.Explores Birthday, and we spent the afternoon at Portmeirion Village, a beautiful way to celebrate I think you’ll soon agree… So…

Eats & Explores: 3 Nights in Athens, Greece

Bestie @jen.on.tour and I recently enjoyed a mini break to the Greek Capital, Athens.
