Thomas was the one who came up with the idea, so I let him pick the car. After all, he was the one who would be doing the driving! We had just decided on the spur of the moment to […]

What’s been happening in August? 
Wow. August has been a seriously busy month.

At the beginning of the month Thomas’ parents got the keys to their brand new house! We spent over a week painting, stripping wallpaper, moving furniture and making everything perfect before they moved in. We were happy working like mad to get them in and knew we’d all have […]

My Favourite Place

By |August 24th, 2017|Life, Travel Tales|2 Comments

It’s a question I dread though.

I dread it because I […]

*sings* R.E.S.P.E.C.T find out what it means to me

Okay, now that I’ve got that out of my system, let’s talk about respect when travelling.

As this post goes live I’ll likely be throwing the last few things into my suitcase before heading to the airport. I’m off to the south of France for five glorious days!

Visiting the Most Northern Point in Mainland UK

By |August 10th, 2017|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|0 Comments

One of the things I knew I wanted to do on my trip to the far north of Scotland was visit the most northern point in mainland UK.
I must admit, though, that I believed this to be at John O’Groats. I’d always heard the things about people travelling from Land’s End to John O’Groats, the two most extreme parts of […]
