Mental health Benefits of Travelling

It has been some time since I have felt the passion and creativity to write a blog post. As I stepped off the plane after my last adventure, the UK was starting to enter into a period of lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.… Continue Reading “Mental health Benefits of Travelling”

Becoming a Savvy Traveller

Over the last 18 months I have had numerous friends and family asking if I have suddenly won the lottery or asking what “I do” that enables me to travel so much. Every single time my response is the same – I am a… Continue Reading “Becoming a Savvy Traveller”

City Break: Three days in Lisbon

There is nothing I like more than a short city break, exploring an undiscovered location. Portugal is a country I had never visited before, so when searching for my next adventure I thought there would be no better place to start than its coastal… Continue Reading “City Break: Three days in Lisbon”

Trekking Hadrian’s Wall in three days.

After the adventures in the Isle of Wight, attempting to walk the full 100km coastal path in 24 hours (and failing at the half way point), I vowed to never sign up for a long walking event again. Of all the challenges I had… Continue Reading “Trekking Hadrian’s Wall in three days.”

Facebook is fantastic about reminding you where you were on this day in the past. And it seems, September seems to be the month that Ross and I take our last break before the busy Christmas period sets in. Sometimes this can be in… Continue Reading “This. Is. Sparta.”

It’s good to walk

Shortly after completing the London Marathon I read a comment made by someone on social media stating “if you walked at any point during the marathon, then you have not run the London Marathon.” Not only did I think this is the most ridiculous… Continue Reading “It’s good to walk”

Running through Grief.

Grief. Such a horrible word. It is something I have not really suffered with before. Yes I grieved the job I lost through redundancy, I have grieved the end of friendships and relationships. But real grief. The grief you feel when you have lost… Continue Reading “Running through Grief.”

Mojo: Lost!

As the title of this blog post suggests; my mojo is lost. I have been struggling over the last few weeks to keep up my level of fitness, to motivate myself to run and to keep to something that resembles structure in my day… Continue Reading “Mojo: Lost!”
