Jungle Paradise Adventure Golf

English Summer is a wonderful time. Unfortunately however, it’s a tad unpredictable. But despite the mishaps with weather, there’s one thing for sure – when the sun is out in England so are you. Unfortunately S and I don’t have much of a garden, so the usual BBQ’s and such that tend to happen when the […]

Goodwood Races

When people ask where I’m from it’s usually followed by a “LOL. WHERE!?” Such is life when you don’t live in one of the major English cities! One place that people have heard of in this charming little hometown of mine however, is Goodwood. There are two parts to Goodwood; the Motor Circuit and the […]

West Dean Gardens

I can guarantee you that if you spent five minutes on Google searching your local area, the results would turn up an abundance of places you have never visited. I’m on a mission to show you all as much of this beautiful place I call home as I can and one of my favourite places […]

Cass Sculpture Foundation

I recently went to the Cass Sculpture Foundation and I realised something. I don’t understand art. PHEW. There. I FINALLY admitted it. I think I had a tough introduction to art, to be fair. My teachers at school were very simplistic, which to a 14 year old chronic over-thinker wasn’t the best match. I never […]

Artie’s Kitchen

It feels like as soon as a new place opens in Chichester, it closes again. (Such is the life when you live in a small city with silly rent prices!) So when an independent pops up, I feel like it’s my duty to go and check it out before it disappears. So on Saturday morning […]

Players Classic

Growing up I was obsessed with the Fast and Furious franchise. Sure there are much better films out there, and some of the F&F plot lines are extremely unrealistic *cough*World’sLongestRunway*cough* but for me it wasn’t the structure of the films, but the lifestyle. It represented a family that was chosen. A family that was formed on […]

7 Bone Burger Co

I spend most of my days dreaming about food. If I’m not eating it, I’m cooking it, and if I’m not cooking it I’m pinning recipes on Pinterest ready to cook. But every so often the food that I find myself dreaming about most, is burgers. If you’ve been stopping by this blog of mine for a while I’m […]

Swanbourne Lake

I adore rowing. It’s probably the only gym-exercise I actually 100% enjoy pushing myself past my mental limits on. But when the sun is out (or most other days to be honest) there’s not a single part of me that wants to spend the day inside the gym when I could be outside basking in […]

10 Things

There are millions of blogs on this little internet machine we call home. But despite the fact that bloggers choose to share so much of their lives online, not many people actually know the real them. So I thought I’d do something different today and tell you 10 things that you may not know about me. […]

Weald And Downland Museum

If you had asked me last year what I thought of England I probably would have told you that I’m really not happy because it’s cold and I miss living in shorts and flip-flops. But now? Well, I love being able to wear trousers again, I no longer take the patchwork quilt of greens, browns […]

Oxford Day Trip

Oxford. The place known as the city of dreaming spires for its buildings that demonstrate examples of every English architectural period since the arrival of the ol’ Anglo Saxons. It’s stunning, and not only is it filled with beautiful buildings but it’s also home to Oxford University: the oldest University in the English speaking world. […]

A Day Of Dirtbikes

There are few occasions that I’ll get out of bed before 9am for. And to get me out of bed before 6am? There are just two. Holidays and Motocross. Now this is the part where I’d love to tell you that it is I who rides Motocross and I’m this total bad-ass dirt-bike rider who […]

6oz Burgers Southsea

6oz Burgers in Southsea was a place that I stumbled upon one hungry afternoon with S. You see, big cities are filled with amazing food stops. High-end restaurants, food trucks and pop up stalls – there’s something for every taste preference and every budget. But when you live in a small coastal town in the […]

West Wittering Beach

There’s nothing better for the soul than a trip to the beach. The soft sand beneath your toes, the wind whistling through your hair, the sun beaming onto your skin and the sound of waves crashing against the shore. Suuure it’s March so the temperature in England rarely exceeds 15ºc, but that doesn’t make it […]

Chichester Walls

Things have been quiet on the blog lately and I hate that, but the truth is I’ve been busy stuffing my face with various friends at their various houses and also because Chichester is sorta kinda incredibly boring in winter. It’s undeniably beautiful but due to its small population and countryside location, when the seasons change and […]

Christmas Market

The past week was one of many stupidly busy weeks, and although I was getting plenty of sleep I didn’t feel regenerated. I felt drained, deflated and bored. But yesterday we had a little Christmas Market, and after weeks of trying to plan it in the stolen moments of busy shifts, it felt good to have […]

El Castizo

Tapas is my favourite. Not just because of the barrages of jamon, cheese and well flavoured carbs on offer, but because dining is a social experience where everybody tucks into an array of share-sized goodies. And because everything is share sized, it means you get to try a little bit of everything. El Castizo is small […]

Brighton

One of the best things about making friends across the globe, is that when they come to your home country, you get to show them your little slice of the world. Unfortunately, whilst my hometown is beautiful, it’s pretty uneventful. So when Anna came down to see me for a few days, S and I decided […]

Kingley Vale

Sunday’s were made for the countryside. There’s just something so satisfying about a roast dinner, followed by a wander through the greens and yellows that surround so much of England. So when my uncle and his family came down from the city to visit, it seemed like the perfect way to spend an afternoon. Kingley Vale is a […]

Bosham Hoe

Sunshine beams through scattering clouds and the slight breeze creates a melody of rustling leaves in the background. I’ve heard so many people say recently that England is grey, cold, flat and boring, and whilst we can’t deny the slight nip in the air that kicks in around autumn time, the truth is England is […]

Eminem

Have you ever been in an atmosphere so electric that you know in that very moment it’ll never be replicated and so you just stand there absorbing as much as you can in an attempt to bottle up every last piece of energy? On friday night that was the very atmosphere I found myself in when […]
