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 […]

Representation Matters

I recently wrote a post dedicated to women and in that post, I mentioned that I didn’t really have a role model growing up. My exact words were: “I didn’t grow up with any female role models. The closest thing I had was Lara Croft, but to be honest she was a rich adventuring woman whose […]

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 […]

A Last Minute Trip To Antwerp

As my eyes forced themselves through the sheer horror of a 4am wake up call and opened, a massive smile crept across my face. The type of smile that comes from knowing you’ll be in a new country in just a few hours. It was only 12 hours before that I had booked the hotel […]

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 […]

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 five boxes […]

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 […]

Travel Tales: Getting Sick Abroad

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 […]

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 […]

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 thrown in every […]

Body Confidence

Words can heal, words can inspire, words can defend, and words can unite. But when the words you are hearing are; “You alright there fried eggs” “You’d look so pretty if you didn’t have that wonky tooth” “Wheyyy, check out those thunder thighs” Words can hurt. Words hurt so much more than people realise, and […]

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 […]

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 […]
