Donuts and Detours

Why hello there,

Welcome to my very own little piece of the internet.

I’m Annmaree, originally from that little country down the bottom of the globe, New Zealand, I’ve been living and breathing in all that London has to offer since 2001.

I spend most of my time in this amazing city hanging out with my boyfriend ‘The Boy Next Door’  (yes, he really did live next door!), discovering all of London’s latest and greatest, from secret cinema events, outdoor markets to eating my way around any new food joint that sounds lip smackingly good.

I love to dance, I laugh louder than anyone I know and have a habit of singing songs from musicals really loudly to my rather patient boyfriend.   I’m obsessed with dogs and literally leap in their direction for a hug (except for chihuahua’s).  I love taking lots of photos, and had the selfie game down way back when we were still processing film.  I love to travel and spend a week every summer on the Amalfi Coast in Italy.

This blog gives me the chance to share all my discoveries, all my past and future travel stories (30+ countries and counting!) and any amazing recipe or restaurant I don’t want you to miss out on.

I love to share my stories with you all, so stick around, get cosy, make that cup of coffee, and delve into my blog posts.

Thanks for reading, it’s great to have you here!
