Getting blown away on England’s north east coastline — a solo trip in Yorkshire

There's nothing quite like a holiday to the coast and inhaling that fresh sea air to combat the trepidations of the 'will they won't they' Green Card application limbo.

No, my sat nav isn't confused. We just went to the Frankfurt Christmas Market in the centre of Birmingham, UK, and it was bloomin' wunderbar.
