Getting High At The Spinnaker Tower *

Finding new perspectives in life is one of my favourite things to do. Whether it’s a different perspective on beliefs, politics, or just quite literally a new visual perspective, and Spinnaker Tower has one of the best locally. The Spinnaker Tower opened in 2005 and was built as part of the Portsmouth Harbour Project. Since then it […]

Chichester Through The Eyes Of A Local

As we sat around the coffee table she exhaled into her hot chocolate and sighed “Jeeeeez this place is so boring!” It was the first time we had all gotten together in a while and as murmurs of mutual agreement crept around the table the words were out before I could stop them. “How can you say […]

The Burger Shop Co

Finding new places to eat is one of my favourite things to do,  so when I heard that The Burger Shop Co, the new burger shop in Arundel, had opened I knew it was time I stopped by for a visit. The Burger Shop Co’s mission is simple: To serve proper burgers, beers and cocktails. […]

My First Tattoo

Think before you ink.     It’s a mantra I have been repeating to myself for years. Not because I’m particularly afraid of committing to having something which will be on me for the rest of my life, but more because when you choose to get something which will be on you for the rest […]

Pickwell Farm Pumpkin Picking!

Autumn is a wonderful time. Darkness falls quickly, evenings feel cosier and you can grow out the leg fuzz because let’s face it, it’s freezing so aint nobody going to see beneath those million layers. But aside from being able to get into your pyjamas that much sooner in the evening, it also marks the arrival […]

Goodwood Revival

One of the best things about where I live is my proximity to Goodwood. It has the aerodrome, the motor track and every year it hosts an array of incredible events, including the infamous Goodwood Revival. Goodwood Revival is an event I have wanted to go to for years, but whenever that time of year […]

Tangmere Aviation Museum

Tangmere Aviation Museum was a place I had driven past many a times but never stopped into. I had always made the assumption that it would be boring, that it probably resemble a village hall with not much stuff in it because Chichester doesn’t tend to have the most expansive of collections (you usually have […]

Arundel Castle

Arundel Castle is a building whose presence demands attention.     Roger de Montgomery established Arundel Castle way back in 1067 on Christmas day. But the thing is dear Roger, is that a castle is for life and not just for Christmas! So S and I set off to explore and whilst I don’t mean to […]

Boxgrove Church

  You may remember that last week I showed you round Boxgrove Ruins (if you missed it you can check it out here) but today I want to show you around Boxgrove Church.     Boxgrove Church is literally right next-door to Boxgrove Ruins and its history is just as long. The only difference is […]

Boxgrove Ruins

Boxgrove Ruins is a place that has graced the backdrop of many a photoshoot. But before Boxgrove Ruins became the it place to have your engagement photos taken, it was a place steeped in history earning it its Grade 1 listing. England has been gloriously warm lately, so S and I decided that we’d get out […]

Bluebells in Chichester

Spring has sprung and the Bluebells in Chichester are out in full force. I’m quite lucky because I live in an incredibly charming city. Chichester has it’s pros and cons, like anywhere else in the world, but it’s old roman history combined with its small town city (we have a cathedral don’t you know) and countryside […]

Ilios, Eindhoven

Choosing where to eat in a new city can be a difficult task. I don’t tend to use TripAdvisor, because as somebody who used to work in the food industry, I feel that so often it’s incredibly damaging to restaurants without due cause (such as when the customers are unbearable beyond belief yet somehow the restaurant gets […]

Exploring Eindhoven

Exploring Eindhoven was something that, unfortunately, we didn’t have much time to do. Due to the time constraints that came with being there for a two (full) day event it didn’t leave many daylight hours to wander around and check out the local museums. What it did leave us with though, was a clear-skied, twilight filled […]

Valkenswaard MX GP

If you didn’t catch my last post (and why ever not?) S and I recently took a little European road trip. We hopped aboard the Eurotunnel and headed all the way to The Netherlands just in time for the Valkenswaard MX GP. Although we did get slightly distracted along the way, making a little pitstop in […]

Driving To Belgium For Waffles

When I heard that we would be driving to Belgium there was one thing on my mind Waffles. (Why yes that corner is missing because I nibbled on it before taking the photo!) Now, before I delve into these doughy little delights, let’s rewind a little. On Easter bank holiday S and I decided to […]

Packing For The Slopes

Packing for a trip to the slopes can be a daunting thing, especially if you’ve never been before. I mean sure you know to pack warm layers because there’s snow so of course it must be cold, but outside of that what do you take? What layers do you need? What equipments is a must? And […]

Les Arcs Day Trip

Snow covered mountains are the most incredible place to wake up. You wake up in the most gloriously warm room, pad over to the windows and throw open the curtains. The snow blinds you for a few seconds, but when your eyes adjust you see white. Clean, pure, white. You open the window and the […]
