Beating And Treating Holiday Sickness

Of all the foods I’ve eaten; offal, blood and chicken feet, it was an empanada that coerced my body into betraying me and giving me that, never wanted, holiday sickness. I was in Toulouse sat in a charmingly quaint hole-in-the-wall style restaurant, and with the vivid colours and memorabilia which was strewn across the room […]

Motorcycle Trip: Aigues-Mortes

  Do you ever start your day on the back of a motorbike, screaming “AMAGAD MINGOS” over your helmet intercom because you’ve just seen flamingos, IN THE WILD. And you’re so excited and thinking to yourself “I’ve just seen motherfucking mingos” all smug and whatnot because there’s NO WAY this day can get any better, but then it does because BAM. […]

Motorcycle Trip: Lyon To Montpellier

After waking up in what can only be described as a jumble of pillowy soft clouds, I managed to tear myself away and get ready for the next leg of our trip: Lyon to Montpellier. I actually managed to get ready in no time at all, which is surprising considering that I hate both early […]

Motorcycle Trip: Un, Deux, Trois

  After wandering along the top of Fourviere we clambered into the cable car and rode down the hill and into the streets of Lyon.     Gorgeous architecture towered over us as we wandered the streets in search of food     Bars, gelato shops, restaurants and the token “Irish” bar (that every location […]

Motorcycle Trip: Reims To Lyon

  Day Two of our motorcycle road trip started with a stretch and my eyes slowly fluttering open. Not because this is a romantic novel, but because if S saw that I was awake he’d make me get up. A quick glance at the clock confirmed my suspicions, that it was “too-early-o’clock” and so I […]

Motorcycle Trip: Kent To Reims

Day one of riding around France was a long one. The day started with us waking up exceptionally early, packing up the panniers and me swinging my leg over before we rode off into the sunrise… Kind of. And by kind of, I mean that that story may have included a slight lie because the […]

10 Things I Learnt Riding To France For The First Time

Last week S and I set off for a quick European getaway by hopping on the bike and riding to France for the first time.     I say “we” took but what actually happened is S rode the bike and I sat on the back singing Spice Girls over the intercom with the occasional pip of childish glee […]

My Shop Is Live!

Is it possible to be dead and alive at the same time?     This is the question I find myself asking myself (because we’re all totally guilty of talking to ourselves amirite?) as I lay in the bath soaking away the stress of a weeks worth of 2am bedtimes, and as I lay there […]

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 […]

Starting Your Own Business: Expectation Vs Reality

If you’ve had a little nosey on my “shop” tab, you’ll be aware that pretty soon I will be launching my shop section on my blog. It’s not going to be the typical blog shop where I post affiliate links to products and technology that I use but instead it’s going to be an actual shop with […]
