Preface – I originally started writing this in the thick of winter. It is now Spring, making all talk of snow redundant. The lesson – I need to finish what I start on a more timely basis! Today I woke up to a flurry of snow outside my window in London – uncomfortable and cold as … More NYC, continued.
Before I launch into my travel tales, it’d be remiss to overlook the fact we’ve just ticked into a new lunar year yesterday – So, happy year of the rooster to you all! May you find prosperity and happiness in whatever comes your way 🙂 And a belated Happy Australia Day to my fellow country … More Adventures across the Atlantic
Facebook has a lovely feature reminding you where you were on a given day in years past – also a stellar way of subtly confronting you with how much you’ve aged and how much weight you’ve gained! When I first started drafting this post (pre-Christmas lol) I had woken up with a notification that that particular day … More Moments in Paris
Hello and Happy 2017! 😀 I’ve come to realise it’s been awhile since I’ve last posted – whilst this blog has not been too far from my mind, the chaos of travel, work, a bout of the winter vomitting bug (yuck) and the Christmas silly season have been completely consuming these past few weeks/months. Irregardless, I am … More Greetings!
Hola! It was long overdue, but i was recently able to pay a visit to Spain’s capital, Madrid. It was a pretty full on weekend – thankfully I had gone to Essen the weekend prior to refuel on energy and TLC, courtesy of my German family! Em and I originally booked to go Madrid as … More Madness in Madrid
After a series of weekends to and fro between London and various Scandinavian countries, it was time for a much desired lazy weekend in the sun! And don’t mean to brag, but London is a stone’s throw away (or just a bit further) from some pretty terrific places – hop on a plane, take a … More Little luxuries of The French Riviera
My time in Stockholm (after consecutive weekends in Copenhagen and Iceland) was short and sweet, only 1 night. And despite good intentions to make the most of it, fate had a way of ensuring it ended up being v-e-r-y chilled out. We were booked onto a painfully early Saturday morning flight, and after patchy bits … More A quick stint in Stockholm
So once again, I overestimated what I was capable of and have exhausted myself to the brink of sickness – a sane person would take that as a cue to slow down… but too bad I’ve got 3 more consecutive weekends of travel lined up. Oops 😁 Anyway, being bed ridden today is an opportune time … More Elemental Iceland – Part 3 ft Earth
Following on from the previous day where I had crossed a lava field, ventured down inside the pits of a 4000 year old volcano, witnessed an epic sunset and marvelled at huge rainbows beaming over little townships, the expectations for Day 2 in Iceland were pretty high. I had booked in a full day adventure with Extreme … More Elemental Iceland – Part 2 ft Water(falls)
When asked about where my favourite places of travel have been, I don’t hesitate in naming France as my numero uno. Second is always a bit more difficult, but after the NC500, Scotland has held that spot for awhile. Third may be Japan, where I went snowboarding a few years ago. However, there’s some new … More Elemental Iceland- Part 1 ft Fire
