Aigues Mortes France

Based in the Gard department in the Occitanie region is Aigues Mortes France, a medieval city surrounded by walls.     But before we get to that, let me take you back to the beginning of my day…Have you ever started your day on the back of a motorbike, screaming “AMAGAD MINGOS” over your helmet intercom because […]

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 […]

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 snapped my […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 brag… I […]

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 that Boxgrove Church 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

Dining in Ilios Eindhoven was something that came about by following my trusty ol’ senses.     After all, dining in a new city can be difficult. Especially one which you haven’t been to before!   Ilios is located in the Dommelstraat region of Eindhoven and S and I discovered it as we were wandering […]

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, […]

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 […]

Driving To Belgium For Waffles

When I heard that we would be driving through Belgium there was one thing on my mind…     Waffles.   But, before I delve into my love for those doughy little delights, let me rewind a little and start with why we were driving to Belgium!   The Easter bank holiday was fast approaching […]

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 […]
