Salterns Way: My Favourite Cycling Route

Cycling along Salterns Way and catching the Bosham to Itchenor Ferry has officially become one of my favourite “it’s warm in England so I must be outside” activities. You see, as I’m sure you’re all aware, England isn’t the warmest of countries. It’s often grey (there’s no arguing that), but it’s also mild. With the […]

Visiting Hever Castle

Located in the heart of Hever in Kent, is Hever Castle. A place which began as a country house built in the 13th century, and on one summer’s day, became the destination of a road trip of me and one of my favourite Kiwis, Emma. We decided upon Hever Castle as it was the a […]

My Family Christmas Traditions

Family Christmas traditions have a tendency to begin without you ever really noticing. They simply happen. One year you decide to do something fun – and then when you look back you realise you’ve been repeating it ever since. My family Christmas traditions happened just like that. I don’t remember them ever starting, just that […]

Halnaker Windmill, Chichester.

Halnaker Windmill is a spot that’s very much a local’s spot. Every day you’ll find dog walkers, Sunday strollers and avid photographers all venturing out to walk through the famous tree tunnel, and up to enjoy Halnaker Windmill and the panoramic views across Chichester which surround it. Although, in Autumn and winter it’s definitely advisable […]

Wylds Farm – Picking Our Christmas Tree!

Wylds Farm in Liss is a place where you can pick, cut and buy your own Christmas Tree. I stumbled across Wylds Farm whilst browsing Instagram‘s location feature last year, and after taking a trip to discover whats-what and coming home with a Christmas tree, I had a feeling it would end up becoming a […]

Cobnor: Picnics and Perfect Weather

Cobnor is exactly the type of place I needed to just “be”. A place where I could be alone with my thoughts, with the sun on my skin and S by my side. A place with snacks (obviously, because seriously who leaves the house without them?) Only in this instance snacks got upgraded into a […]

Giggling Squid – Chichester*

Giggling Squid has recently set up a restaurant in Chichester and as somebody who is completely and utterly obsessed with Thai food, you can bet that I was first in line when they opened their doors. Almost literally, because on the 15th of June I was invited to the opening night of their Chichester branch. […]

WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!

The month was June, the day was Tuesday and I was spending it with Nikki as she was in England for a short while. As we walked along the Thames, my phone rang. “Hello Amy, it’s Annabelle, just calling to let you know that the vendor has accepted your offer”. I stopped dead in my […]

Appreciating The Familiar

My car turned along the winding roads with the landscape above my steering wheel turning from leafy greens to a dusty pink. As the trees broke you could see the sun was beginning the process of setting and as I glanced upwards I could see Chichester Cathedral in the distance. Beneath the cathedral, were fields. […]

How To Dress For English Weather

You’d think that living in England would make me somewhat of an expert when it comes to dressing for the weather. Buuuuut you’d be wrong. You see, English weather is incredibly unpredictable and as a result nobody really knows what to wear. To be honest I, along with a ton of other people I’m sure, would quite […]

Sant Yago, Southsea

As I sit here writing this, I’m sat in Sant Yago, one of my favourite restaurants in Southsea. We (S and I) came here last month for drinks with friends and decided that we should probably come back for food and so here we are. It’s St Patricks Day and the only table they had […]

How My Travel Style Has Evolved

As I sat in traffic on my way to work this morning I couldn’t help but think about how much my travel style has changed over the years.   You see, we’re currently in the process of planning a trip for the end of the month (it’s not going so well at the moment, as […]

Visiting The Ancient Roman Baths, In Bath

Visiting the Ancient Roman Baths in Bath was something I’d wanted to do since I first saw them on a brochure back when I was a child. I’d daydream about diving in them to swim and pretend I was somebody important from the past. So when I discovered that you weren’t actually allowed to bathe […]

A Weekend Trip To Bath

There are times in life, when you just need to take a trip. Lauren (the one below who isn’t me) Agreed and so we decided that on a trip, we shall go! Unfortunately, neither of us had a clue where it was we actually wanted to go, so I did what I always do when I […]

Getting My Bike Licence: Step One

When I was younger I was obsessed with motorbikes. My dad’s friend would ride over every week for a cuppa, and whilst the kettle boiled he would let me sit on the front of his seat and ride along for a whopping three metres. When I got older this changed to three miles, and a […]

Winchester Day Trip

I’ve lived in England most of life and it was only recently that I went on a day trip to Winchester. I had driven past Winchester numerous times, yet for some reason never stopped in. So one abnormally sunny afternoon, S and I decided to rectify this by going out to see what there was to […]

Off Road Segway Experience

The off road segway experience wasn’t an experience I expected myself to like, yet once I got over the whole ‘balancing’ issue, it was actually pretty fun. I’m a firm believer that when you give gifts they should be one of two things; functional or fun. You see, the functional gifts come in handy – […]

The Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth*

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 […]

Things To Do In Chichester

Looking for things to do in Chichester? Well, then you’ve come to the right place!   I’ve lived around Chichester for the majority of my life, so I know this charming little city pretty dang well… Unless you ask me to find a random street by name then lol no.     From the city […]

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. […]

Mike Stout Tattoo

Getting a Mike Stout tattoo was something I knew I wanted. Obviously. Wanting something is kind of necessary when permanently marking your body. But to be more specific: I knew that I wanted a Mike Stout tattoo to be my first tattoo. You see, I’d followed Mike Stout’s work for a while, first discovering him […]
