Dawdling away from Skye’s famous fairy pools, bitterly disapointed having been unable to wild swim due to being feasted upon by what seemed to be a convergance of the entire island’s midgey population, I turned to Adam. “When did holidays stop being about rest and relaxation and food and start being about going and doing… More When you became a traveller
Day 1 of camping in Scotland and we’ve already had to cave and book a hotel room. Wind weather warnings + torrential rain + Glen Coe are not a wise mix!! As you can see: We’ve already seen a caravan smashed to smitheries, presumably having been blown off the road! Thankfully everyone seemed fine and… More A change of plan already!
Despite over six months, about 200 Word documents pages, and innumerable websites worth of planning, we have finally made the ‘mature’, but gutting decision to cancel our California trip. At a time when we should be searching for and booking cheap flights to LAX, we are instead hunting down the best mortgages and despite having come into… More A Sacrifice, a Loss and a Plan at Last
Sitting in my lounge this afternoon, watching a rerun of ‘Jon Richardson Grows Up’ on All 4, I had an epiphany. One that I touched upon in my very first post in my Background section: I have a major conflict of identity. And that- I believe- is something that contributes to my mental health issues.… More “When I discover who I am, I’ll be free”

It’s a good job that I love a good wedding! All three were… More Wedding Season
With things up in the air at the moment with a member of our tremendous trio, I’ve been spending more time looking at mine and Adam’s 18-months around Asia and Australasia than focusing on our month-long adventure in Western USA this time next year. But, after a friend who’s looking to fly down from Canada… More California Dreaming
As you may have read, in recent weeks we’ve had the pleasure of a trip to beautiful Glasgow and Edinburgh. Here are some of the photos I took of the beautiful capital in the eve of the nuptials:
… for my every growing list! So far, my list includes: travel blogger or author, travel photographer, wildlife photographer, open my own shop, selling up cycled furniture/craft items, And now I also would love to do music photography. It’s one of the reasons I’ve always loved going to festivals (particularly those without arenas). Whilst at… More Another ‘Dream Job’
In the harsh light of day I can barely stand, never mind walk; my brain is trying to burst out of my skull via my eye sockets; my throat feels like I’ve swallowed sandpaper; I went nine hours without a drink or a trip to the toilet; arrived about 5 hours before the first song… More Springsteen is still The Boss!
