How to embrace an unexpected adventure

24th March 2020

As you can tell from the name of this blog, I’m very aware of the unexpected adventures life takes us on. Most of these unexpected twists and turns are unwelcome and present issues, as well, you didn’t see them coming. Some unexpected events, of course are good, wonderful even. Marriage, babas, doggos you know. At […]

Highlights of Boston & Cape Cod

18th March 2020

With a beautiful harbour and a vibrant city, Boston is the ideal city and sea break. Last summer I spent a few days in Boston, before we drove down to idyllic Cape Cod. Large wooden beam houses set back from the road with a porch and a tree swing, Hyannis replicated a traditional American movie […]

The end of an era

24th January 2020

This week has been filled with tears, for many reasons, as it is the end of an era. Today I say goodbye to my first post-uni or proper job as the Editor of Architecture Magazine at the Peterborough based publishers Media One. It was a decision made for many reasons; I moved towards Cambridge and […]

Adventures in Dubrovnik

21st November 2019

Before I share my adventures in Dubrovnik, let’s get it out there… I haven’t watched Game of Thrones (don’t @ me) so this is not a GOT filled trip with tours of the locations, museums or 287490 gift shops. Another time, when I’ve watched however many million hours of TV it is, I will do […]

A Weekend in Krakow, Poland

Get comfortable being uncomfortable

27th November 2018

It’s time to get comfortable being uncomfortable. It’s no secret that I love to plan (mainly for the stationary) and in those rare moments I actually have free time, and feel slightly bored, then I have something to look forward too. Also my friends are all super busy with real lives of their own, so […]

Visiting Malham Cove and Gordale Scar, Yorkshire

9th October 2017

Yesterday, Becca and I decided to take a walk at Malham Cove and Gordale Scar in the Yorkshire Dales. Nothing beats having a long walk in the fresh air and going to bed with achey feet and sleeping like a baby bear in hibernation. It is something we’ve talked about doing for a while, and as […]

What to do at The Grand Canyon, Arizona

16th September 2017

After visiting Las Vegas we drove to the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Well we’d booked a hotel there, but we hadn’t booked transport yet. So at 6:30am we went down to the rental car section of our hotel (because Vegas has everything) and we tried to get a car. Our options were an average sized […]
