So I fell off the blogging wagon, big style… My defence is fairly weak, because when you’re laying up in hotel rooms frankly you should have something better to do than stare listlessly at Netflix churning on your iPad while you lay in a too-small bath in clouds of foam.

Being busy little bees, we didn't have a lot of time to stop and say hello, so ended … Continue reading Review: Cafe Route, Dalston
