Hello, and welcome to Bird Flying Solo! This is a space to share what I love: excellent food, great style, adventurous travels, and the wonders of London life, my home city and a place that constantly inspires me.
I am a passionate foodie, and love sharing the best food around, whether it be outside or something you can eat at home. I am convinced that this does not have to be fancy, fiddly or expensive – I often eat inexpensively and still very well – but simply good quality, honest, well made food. This is often linked to where ingredients and produce has come from, and I value a responsible and transparent supply chain – in other words, knowing that the best ingredients and produce have gone into my food. This is why you will see so many Instagram shots of food I’ve made at home, and reviews of places where I have eaten!
I am on a dedicated quest to find the best of my favourite foods – pizza, burgers, desserts, ice cream and gelato, to name but a few!
I combine my love of food with my passion for travel: I have been an avid solo traveller for over a decade, starting with my first trip alone to San Francisco in 2007. It was unforgettable, and I have not looked back since. The freedom you get from travelling alone is unbeatable, and I advocate the growing numbers of women who are travelling alone – I have had the time of my life doing it!
I love fashion, and am also weaving that into my blog, although I am a little shy about selfies! As the blog unfolds I will incorporate more of that.
I hope you enjoy my blog, and if you have any questions or suggestions please do get in touch!
