Bridges and Balloons
Hi. I’m Victoria, a semi-nomadic writer based in London with my filmmaker fiancé Steve. I love cake, he loves pickles and we both love to travel a lot.
Sometimes we go for a weekend, other times for six months, and once for three years. We seek out all things special – the unique, the cosy and the creative – the kinds of places and experiences you want to tell people about. And that’s what this blog is for – a place to share our finds and our stories from along the way. It’s yours for inspiration.
Things we love, and that you can expect to read about on here, include: special places to stay; whiskey cocktails; mountains; glamping; hipster coffee shops; vegetarian brunch; yoga; street food markets; cakes; festivals; beaches; independent bookshops and cosmic wonder. I also tend to share a lot of my personal journey – the ups and downs from along the way. I try to write things I’d like to read.
After three years of continuous travel we decided to make London our base.
Steve is an award-winning filmmaker. His company, Planetary Collective‘s, first feature film is showing at SXSW 2015.
We came very close to buying some land in Mexico and building a yoga retreat. Perhaps we still will one day.
We are both vegetarian and often shape our trips around food. Sourdough pizza, South Indian cuisine and most types of street food are among our favourites.
Steve proposed in the Grunewald forest of Berlin in July 2014. We’re getting married in a forest filled with tipis in August 2015 and we’re going to adopt both our names so we’ll be the Watts Kennedy’s.
We were once held hostage by monkeys.
If you’re interested, I made a list of all my favouirte things here. It makes me happy every time I look at it.
And if you’re new here, take a look at this getting started page for a little tour of the blog.
