Top tips for a sightseeing tour in Goa, India

As part of a recent visit to India with the Nomadness Travel Tribe, I extended my stay for an additional three days to visit the Indian state of Goa, a former Portuguese province.

Having secured accommodation in North Goa, my friend and I were keen to explore as much of the state as possible within the limited time frame. Continue reading Top tips for a sightseeing tour in Goa, India

Kick-starting #2013Body workout at The Chelsea Club, London

imageOn a dull and rainy Sunday afternoon in London, my boyfriend and I headed for The Chelsea Club at Stamford Bridge in South West London. Having cancelled our gym membership in 2012, we wanted to take full advantage of a complimentary day pass and lunch that we had previously obtained, particularly with 2013 bringing a host of travel plans and a desired shake-up of our routine.

In general we both love to use the gym and regularly try new forms of exercise like Qigong, as well as maintaining and improving our diets with recipes and foods that we have tried from around the world. With this in mind, it made sense that we would be keen to try a gym that is regarded as one of the finest in London offering first class facilities and equipment.

Upon entering the club, we were warmly greeted by the receptionist, who handled our enquiry and led us through to the club. Here, we entered the swanky changing rooms (where sadly, no photos are allowed) to lock away our belongings before heading straight to the gym on the top floor of the club.

Quality British food @ Mother Mash, Leadenhall Street, London

Today, my colleagues and I decided to head out for lunch to a place quite near to our offices called ‘Mother Mash‘, based on Leadenhall Street between Aldgate and Bank Underground stations. Quite often with such a central location, it is difficult to find somewhere that serves food at a reasonable price in a restaurant environment which was exactly what we wanted.

Beigel Bake, Brick Lane, East London

Today I stumbled upon a pretty special little bakery called ‘Beigel Bake’ (pronounced ‘Bagel Bake’) at Brick Lane, East London  at 159 Brick Lane, my first time visiting but certainly won’t be the last! With an assortment of freshly baked bagels (their specialty) available with or without fillings, as well as cakes and pastries, anybody would be certainly spoilt for choice.

I managed to get a chicken filled bagel, slice of carrot cake and a large chocolate brownie slice for £3.30 which by London standards is pretty incredible. Service is fast despite being very busy during the lunch hour and staff were friendly and chatty.

If you’re in the area and looking for a light bite to eat then this is definitely the place to go. They are open 24 hours a day providing tasty and good quality food at very affordable prices.
