Welcome to our blog, a record of our gastro outings interspersed with shopping and chatting.

Adele, Kate and Lorraine – friends in our fabulous forties who met at Catering College way back in 1985.

We don’t pretend to be professional food critics however we love eating, drinking and travelling and wish to share some of our experiences from around the World. Our views are honest and to the point, we hope you enjoy reading them.

We get together at least twice a month for shopping, chatting, drinking and of course eating and we have dined in some stunning Michelin starred restaurants, however we equally enjoy local eateries and bars.

If our blog gives you some ideas on where to eat, what to expect, some idea on costs and whether the bathrooms are basic or beautiful, then that’s great!


Hi, I’m Kate.

When I’m not stuffing my face I enjoy travelling, memory keeping, crafting, Geocaching, snapchat filtering and walking. I have worked at Lidl: training managers, running stores and assisting the Board. I have a wonderfully supportive husband who currently works overseas and an amazing teenage son who is growing into a fine young gentleman 🙂
