Glamping: Midweek Getaway!

Drinking Tea

Not too long ago I was basking in the peace and quiet of a beautiful yurt at Alde Garden campsite.  We stayed for two nights and it was rather wonderful, to be honest.  Yes, I took lots of photos…it was needed!

Visiting Iceland

It feels like it happened months ago, but on the 17th January 2018, Simon and I flew out of Gatwick airport on an evening flight and arrived three hours later in Keflavík airport, Iceland.  I’d organised this as a wee birthday trip for Simon.  Once we’d gathered our things we boarded a bus to take us […]

Tegalalang Rice Terraces

Look at that sunshine!  Our last day of fun in Bali, one of the fun activities I managed to arrange was to visit the Teglalang Rich Terraces.  We went straight after the the Teganungun Waterfall, I’m not sure I’d recommend doing it back to back as there are a lot of steps to the waterfall […]

Teganungun Waterfall | Bali Photo Diary

Teganungun Waterfall Don't Worry

As one of our last days in Bali I organised a bit of a fun adventure day.  I took so many photos of our activities I’ve decided it is wisest to split it up into a few different posts.  So today we have our trip to the Teganungun Waterfall.  Spoiler, it was amazing and an experience […]

Books To read On Holiday

While we’ve been travelling, I’ve fallen back in love with reading.  I used to read everyday, I’d entirely fallen out of the habit.  It was rather nice to sit out on the balcony with beverage of choice – often a coffee or beer, reading and chilling out.  I’ve all but one book in the picture, […]

Visiting the Turtle Sanctuary

Visiting the Turtle Sanctuary

I’m slowly making a dent in all of my travel photos and videos.  I’m almost caught up!  Well I say that…there’s still a few weeks left, hopefully you’re enjoying it as much as I am enjoying reliving the memories.  Above is me looking very pleased about chilling out on an egg swing, I think I […]

Swimming With Turtles

I’ve another travel vlog for you.  I’ve only video for this one again as it was pretty much all in the water and I was having far too much fun recording all of the fish and turtles!  So what did we do and how did we organise it?

Learning To Surf | Bali Vlog 6

So we finally learnt to surf!  We went to the Pro Surf School in Kuta and did a 3 day surf camp for 5,100,000 IDR (for both of us), which is about £301 – so not bad!  That includes shared accommodation (although we did get upgraded for free on the second day whoop), breakfast, 3 half […]

Campuhan Ridge Walk || Bali Photo Diary

We found this nature walk on Lonely Planet and decided it looked both doable and beautiful.  So off we went!  Note to self, don’t go around mid day, it’s hot and humid and it turned out to be about 11km start to finish for us.  We were exhausted by the end! The majority of the […]

Balli Photo Diary || Ubud Monkey Forest

One thing you have to do when you visit Ubud, Bali, is to visit the Monkey Forest.  Multiple friends recommended it and if you pick up any travel book on Ubud, you will undoubtedly see a few paragraphs dedicated to it.  It’s 50,000 IDR per person, which is about £3.  So not expensive at all, […]

Bali Photo Diary || Ubud Palace | Puri Saren Agung

We’ve been off seeing the sights in Ubud, so I’ve a few photojournal posts to share with you.  We’re starting with the Ubud Palace – Puri Saren Agung.  It is free to enter, with no dress code and it’s worth a wander.  As of May 2017, parts of it are under construction, which sadly means you can’t […]

Empty house at Christmas?

Home Security at Christmas

I doubt I’m alone in travelling at Christmas.  I’ve been visiting family – either mine or my husband’s for about 17years…wow that seems like a long time, surely I’m not that old?!  I moved out at 18 and never moved back in, I’ll let you do the maths there.   So the flights and car […]

As we are starting to get ready to travel, I thought it might be nice to share some of our previous travels!  First up, Venice.  We visited Venice in October a few years ago and although I did take all of my pictures on our big camera, I seem to have lost the originals, so […]

Day out at the Rugby World Cup

Day out at the rugby

We went to the Ireland v Romania game and had an absolute ball.  The atmosphere was just unreal, it felt like an Ireland home game, just utterly wonderful frankly!  Also took a notion and decided to do some penny boarding, I may have fallen down a few times.  Slowly getting the hang of it though!
