Island Hopping On Gothenburg’s Archipelago

Ever since my brief venture into Sweden two years ago, I have longed to return and explore this beautiful country properly. My wish came true when my lovely boyfriend Simon booked us a week long trip to Gothenburg as a Christmas present. I spent the next few months planning what we could get up to, … Continue reading Island Hopping On Gothenburg’s Archipelago

Happy Times At Howletts Wild Animal Park

My mother recently celebrated her 60th birthday, and as part of her weekend of birthday treats, Simon and I took her to Howletts Wild Animal Park near Canterbury in Kent. It's somewhere both she and I had been before, but not for a long time, and Simon had never been. Since it had been so … Continue reading Happy Times At Howletts Wild Animal Park

Beautiful Bluebells In Brede High Woods

One place I've been meaning to write about for a long time is Brede High Woods in East Sussex. It's one of my favourite local nature spots and I go there at least once a year to walk around the almost 650 acre woodland. As with many of my other favourite places, Brede High Woods … Continue reading Beautiful Bluebells In Brede High Woods

The Science Museum, London

It was the last day of August and Simon and I only had a few days left before going back to work, so on a bit of a whim, we decided to make the most of it and hopped on a train to London. The original aim was to visit both the Science Museum and … Continue reading The Science Museum, London

Fun Days Out At Chessington World Of Adventures

Recently I've been to Chessington World of Adventures Twice after managing to avoid it for 30 whole years! I say avoid, but it wasn't deliberate. Growing up without a car in a small town with pretty rubbish transport links, Chessington always seemed so far away. Even when I got a car, for the first few … Continue reading Fun Days Out At Chessington World Of Adventures

Bedgebury Pinetum In Summer

One of my favourite places to visit in my local area is Bedgebury Pinetum in Kent. Throughout the seasons, this scenic wonderland is constantly changing, offering up beautiful, technicolour plants, bushes and trees as you weave along its maze of footpaths. Bedgbury Pinetum, which can be reached easily by car, exiting the A21 near Flimwell, … Continue reading Bedgebury Pinetum In Summer

Celebrating One Year Together in Disneyland Paris

On 2nd August 2017, my dream came true when the person I'd been hopelessly besotted with for ten months agreed to be my boyfriend. As I always knew, we are the perfect match, and at the start of this summer break we headed out to Disneyland Paris to celebrate one amazing year together. Back when … Continue reading Celebrating One Year Together in Disneyland Paris

Rolling Hills and Rollercoasters: Adventures in and Around The Peak District

Since I have been with my wonderful boyfriend Simon, it's like a whole new world of adventure has opened up for me. Beforehand, my anxiety stopped me from going to a lot of places in the UK because I was too afraid to drive to places I wasn't familiar with and train fares were way … Continue reading Rolling Hills and Rollercoasters: Adventures in and Around The Peak District

Falling In Love With Dorset’s Jurassic Coast

In August, I took a trip to Dorset's Jurassic Coast with my friend Siobhan. On this trip I encountered some of the most beautiful scenery I've seen - some of it even came close to Norway's standards, and that really is saying something! Siobhan and I set off from our home town on the train … Continue reading Falling In Love With Dorset’s Jurassic Coast

Where Did All The Hot Air Balloons Go?

Ages ago, my Mum started going on about this Hot Air Balloon Festival in Eastbourne, East Sussex. At the time it was far too soon to start projecting into the future and decide whether I would be free to go to it, so I neither accepted nor rejected her invite to go. She got tickets … Continue reading Where Did All The Hot Air Balloons Go?
