Festival camping for those who like a little luxury

April 28, 2018 Lifestyle, Travel

I’ll confess, I don’t enjoy camping. Not because I fear the outdoors or getting my hands a little dirty but because a good nights sleep is so important to me and past camping experiences have left me with a crooked back and cranky hangover. People approach festivals in two very different ways, which I think myself and a friend of mine sum up pretty well. N would buy the cheapest tent from Tesco and use his rucksack as a pillow, fallingRead More

How to save money on a weekend get-away

Weekend away

There’s no better sense of anticipation than working the week knowing that come Friday night you’ll be off on an adventure. Weekend getaways are for many of us the only way that we get to travel a diverse range of destinations. The weekend is a great time to explore locations that are a little closer to home without eating into your very limited holiday allowance. Although a great use of your free time, jetting off at the weekend can beRead More

Harmonics in Space – True Zen in London

Now Exhibition London

I vow to always be 100% truthful with my readers. So I best disclose that I’m writing this after a few more than a couple of G&T’s. Why? Because it’s Friday and I’ve just smashed another week of adulthood. (Editors note, it was when this post was scheduled)   You may be wondering how my alcohol consumption and Friday feeling have anything to do with this post. Well, I can tell you now it has everything to do with this post because withoutRead More

I’ve fallen in love with water

I love water camber

71% of our beautiful planet is covered in water – growing up by the sea I never truly appreciated the wonder on my doorstep, until I moved away from it that is. Now I find myself going back there again and again just to soak up the sounds of the waves and the smell of the ocean air.  Water is such a vital part of our planet and is host to a diverse range of plants and animals that IRead More

Is wi-fi now a key consideration for travellers?

Wifi priority for travellers

We’re living in a digital age. I don’t know anyone without a smartphone and the day the BT van is spotted on our street, we hold our breath and pray the Wi-Fi isn’t about to go down. Throughout my travels I’ve never been faced with a black-out (no internet) as fortunately everywhere I have stayed has some sort of Wi-Fi-connect. This begs the question, how important is Wi-Fi now when people are choosing where to travel? I’ve teamed up withRead More

5 TV landscapes you can visit in the UK

February 16, 2018 Lifestyle, Travel

I’ve always had a thing for gardens, nature and landscapes. Perhaps it was my countryside upbringing or my mother’s love of plants that have filtered down into my bloodstream. I made brilliant use of my National Trust Student Membership whilst it lasted and enjoy nothing more than discovering a new garden on a piece of the countryside no matter the weather. We’re blessed with a beautiful countryside just waiting to be explored and Suttons, garden lovers and retailers of vegetable seeds,Read More

Slow holidays – what are they and why should you try them?

February 11, 2018 Travel

Sometimes it seems as though we are living our lives in the fast lane, at 100mph, always eager to get onto the next thing, the next stage. I’ve found myself feeling like this, racing through education, onto college, into uni and it wasn’t until I graduated that I realised how I’d wished a quarter of my life away. Sometimes we need to take a step back and just slow down. One great way to do this is through slow holidays.Read More
