Currently: The 2018 Edition

In 2014 I wrote a list. This list to be exact.   I thought it would be a good way to capture what it was I was feeling in that moment without spilling my metaphorical guts onto the internet. When I published that post I was exhausted from working ridiculous hours in an industry I […]

My Favourite Travel Blogs

Travel bloggers. There’s an abundance of them, with more joining this little keyboard club everyday. An abundance of stories, pictures and unique perspectives just waiting to be discovered. I’m currently sat in bed with a bit of a headache perusing Bloglovin; catching up on where people have been in the world. It’s like my very own desktop […]

Recognising Travel Privilege

I love blogging, I love travelling – so the fact that travel blogging exists makes my heart incredibly happy. I’m able to read about adventures from all of the metaphorical corners of the globe, whilst sitting in my blanket with a cup of English Breakfast Tea. I’m able to discover people’s stories and learn about […]

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. […]

My Favourite Travel Buddy

This is S.     If you’ve been on my blog before there’s a 85% chance that you’ve seen his face, and if you haven’t here’s another picture.     Cute, eh?   His real name is Sam, but to be honest I’ve been calling him S on here for such a long time that […]

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 […]

How Lara Croft Helped Me Realise That Representation Matters

On the 8th of this month I wrote a post dedicated to women. (You can find it here if you missed it). 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 […]

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 […]

Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself…

My name is Hov’ (oh) H-to-the-O-V. It’s not really. It’s Amy. This is me. Some of you may already know this, some of you may not. But whilst I was doing some blog maintenance earlier I noticed that there were more people hanging round these internet parts than usual, so I thought I’d pop together […]

Why Rest Is Important

The importance of rest is a subject I am well versed in. Ask S. He’ll tell you (much to his annoyance) that I’m a total champ when it comes to sleep. Sidenote: S would say that technically that sentence should say that I “used to be” because throughout March I’ve been blogging everyday and haven’t […]
