My Winter in England & An Admission

I know. Long time no see, eh? I'm ashamed to admit that I've been neglecting my blog a bit recently. Simply put, I've had a bit of writer's block. I've just not felt inspired to use this space. I'm one of those people who is either 100% on something and has articles coming from their… Read More

Get to Know me! Life in England | Vlog

A bit of a different video today, folks! I want to stick to regular uploads on my blog but haven't been out of the country since Namibia. Instead of not uploading, I decided to put together a video of various excursions and footage taken from my home-country, England. It feels strange showing you a snippet… Read More

Deer-Spotting in Tatton Park

A dark shadow fell across my body and I stifled a sigh. I turned my gaze towards the darkening sigh, disappointed to see the final rays of sun being concealed behind a thick blanket of cloud. Suddenly a mere T-shirt under my light-weight jacket didn't seem like a good idea. Oh why, oh why did… Read More

Climbing Waterfalls in Snowdonia | Vlog

This is my first official vlog! I've been filming and editing videos for years but normally stay completely behind the camera. Boy was this tough. Vloggers make it look so easy but you can clearly see how awkward I was in front of the camera to begin with. Thankfully, I seem to get slightly more… Read More

Our Crazy Final Day in Mallorca

After finally managing to open the door to our villa (you can read more about that trauma here), we walked down to the shops to buy our Diet Coke. Mission complete, we put our food away and due to thirst, put some drinks in the freezer to make them cool down at maximum speed. Despite… Read More

I Made it to Mallorca! (Just)

I woke up, bleary-eyed, scrambling around trying to reach for the screeching alarm. Through my half-closed eyes I saw the room was pitch-black. The sun hadn't even risen yet. My body protested as I slowly clambered out of bed, tripping over my packed suitcase on my way out. 4.30am. Why did I choose such an… Read More

5 Reasons to Visit Snowdonia National Park

Just over a week ago, I was fortunate enough to visit Snowdonia National Park. This was my first time visiting the idea and I had absolutely no idea what to expect. Normally I crave tropical climates and sun-kissed beaches and pay little attention to areas which see little sun but circumstances have allowed me to… Read More

Climbing Waterfalls in Snowdonia

I did it! By some way of a miracle, I slept all the way through the night, lulled into a deep and peaceful sleep by the therapeutic rumble of the river outside our tent. It certainly made a difference that I remembered to bring pillows this time. Top tip, a lack of pillows whilst camping… Read More

Driving to Snowdonia & How We Nearly Turned Back

It was time for our third camping trip. We'd been holding it off for a couple of weeks in the hope that the weather would pick up. It also allowed us time to finally get the car fixed. 3 weeks later, the weather still wasn't great but I just couldn't hold off waiting any longer… Read More

A Day at Little Moreton Hall

I've decided that I just don't see enough of my country. I often sit, daydreaming about being on holiday (like reminiscing about my recent trip to the Seychelles) when really there's just so much to do if only I got out the house more! This Saturday was different - I decided to go on an… Read More
