That's right! There's a Sock Monkey loose in NYC and he seems to be making himself quite at home here already! Clive blends in perfectly to this eclectic, colourful, unique landscape, that's like no where else in the world! And it's hot! The public fountains have become local watering holes, parks have become offices and… Continue reading Mini Break: A Sock Monkey in Manhattan!
Without wanting to sound complacent, when you live in Europe you get a little spoilt for choice, when thinking about a weekend away. Living up here in the north of Germany means London, Paris, Copenhagen, Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, Brussels, and Stockholm are little more than an hour away.

The… Continue reading Mini Break : Amsterdam
What a city! Located just a hop, skip and a jump for us from Hamburg, Copenhagen is one of the most beautiful cities I've seen! Even though it's cold, cold April, the sunshine on our backs and faces has helped not only to keep us a little warmer, but to see this beautiful city in… Continue reading Mini Break : Copenhagen
Hi there and welcome (finally) to the first Gus and Ollie blog! I have been meaning to do this for some time now and decided to finally take the plunge and enter into the world of blogs!
