Things To Do In Carvoeiro

The very first time I went to Portugal, I spent my time worrying that I wouldn’t be able to find things to do in Carvoeiro. After all, I love exploring but whenever you mention a trip to Portugal, you hear about how gorgeous Lisbon, Porto or Albufeira are. Little ol’ Carvoeiro? It’s not mentioned as […]

Carvoeiro Beach: Praia De Paraiso

If you stand at the precipice staring down at Carvoeiro beach, you’ll see it’s an incredibly beautiful sight. But when you look at the sands of Carvoeiro beach you see sunbeds, umbrellas, boats for day trips to the caves and a whole lot of people. Which, when you’re trying to relax, is less than ideal. […]

Carvoeiro To Ferragudo

Ferragudo, like Carvoeiro, was a place I hadn’t really heard of until I was on my way there. After exploring the coastal cliffs of Algar Seco, S and I decided that we wanted to explore further afoot and so we hopped on Carvoeiro’s Land Train to see what lay waiting for us in the nearby town […]

Walking Along Algar Seco

Algar Seco was one of those walks where you have no idea where you’re heading, but you choose a direction and wander anyway, only to find yourself in a rather beautiful spot.     After heading down to Gelados and Companhia for breakfast (crepes if you were wondering – I had ham, S had ham […]

Normandy Omaha Beach

As the gorgeous Miroir D’eau faded into the distance in our rearview mirror, Normandy was soon ahead of us.     I’ve totally skipped the part where we stopped in Nantes overnight in the above sentence, but to be honest except for eating way too much steak, finding a cool hippo cocktail stirrer and buying […]

Place De La Bourse and The Miroir D’eau

The Miroir D’eau, otherwise known as the world’s largest reflecting pool, is a pool which goes by many names; Water Mirror, Miroir D’eau and even Miroir Des Quais. But whilst it can be confusing knowing what to call the impressive pool, one thing’s for sure; with it’s location straight in front of Place De La […]

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 […]

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 […]

Things To Do In Chichester

Finding new things to do in Chichester isn’t always the easiest task—sometimes you know a place so well that it’s easy to take it for granted. Like when you are able to walk for hours around Chichester’s canals and cobbled streets yet not stumble across anything new because you know every little nook and cranny,  it can steal […]

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 of your […]

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 […]
