Edinburgh Gin dinner @ Moor Hall Hotel & Spa

To say I had a lovely evening on Friday would be an understatement and a half, I can tell you. Having received an invitation to attend an Edinburgh Gin event (you can read all about the last one here) at Moor Hall Hotel & Spa, I had a feeling I might be in for a… Continue reading Edinburgh Gin dinner @ Moor Hall Hotel & Spa


Vietnamese street food @ Pho

I've written before about my love affair with Pho - check it out - located in the food court area of Grand Central.
