MY BUCKET LIST

Updated June 2020: I initially wrote this list about 5 years ago but as time changes, so have my goals - hence the update. A bucket list is basically a list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket. Everyone's is different, and it can include literally anything; whatever is important to … Continue reading MY BUCKET LIST

A Day Trip to Krka National Park, Croatia

A few years ago, I road tripped around Croatia from Zagreb down to Dubrovnik, stopping at Plitvice National Park. It was out of season, incredibly empty and felt like our own personal paradise; walking along the boardwalks and bending down to admire all the little fish. The only thing that was missing in this, was … Continue reading A Day Trip to Krka National Park, Croatia

A RAINY WEEKEND | THE LAKE DISTRICT | WEEKEND WANDERING

The Lake District is a gorgeous National Park in Northwestern England, home to (surprise surprise) beautiful lakes, lovely walks and plenty of activities for the whole family. I'd never stayed their before this trip and was very excited to experience all of these things. August is a great time to go to the Lake District, … Continue reading A RAINY WEEKEND | THE LAKE DISTRICT | WEEKEND WANDERING

HIKING IN LAKE LOUISE | WAIST DEEP IN SNOW | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

With a slight scent of horses still about us, we grabbed a cab (much to the surprise of our hotel reception) up to Lake Louise from Banff, which was more hair raising than expected...  Number 136. So, apparently it's rare for people to take a taxi from Banff to Lake Louise. I'm still not 100 percent … Continue reading HIKING IN LAKE LOUISE | WAIST DEEP IN SNOW | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

MONTREAL TO BANFF | “ALRIGHT FOR SOME” | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

We left for the airport bright and early, arriving at just the right time to check in for our flight to Calgary - we would usually check in ahead of time, but hadn't stressed too much about it for once. It wasn't until we reached the departure gate that I realised this could be any kind of … Continue reading MONTREAL TO BANFF | “ALRIGHT FOR SOME” | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

FOAMHENGE | GREAT SMOKIES | VLOG | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

Happy Travel Tuesday! Today I'd like to present the newest in our series of vlogs produced during our USA / Canadian Road Trip. This one takes place during our journey between Shenandoah Valley, to Great Smokies National Park. We did a quiz, sang some songs, and saw some foam. The usual. It'd mean a lot … Continue reading FOAMHENGE | GREAT SMOKIES | VLOG | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

ONE BUNION, THREE BEARS | GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

https://www.instagram.com/p/BERQzjxtbvm/ Day 2 in Gatlinburg, we woke up in our Fabulous Chalet Inn beds, in a lovely cloud of must to the light shining through the hole in the curtains... Dreamy. I jest, it wasn't all that bad really. We got used to it, anyway. Plus, this (thankfully) had no bearing on the rest of the … Continue reading ONE BUNION, THREE BEARS | GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

FABULOUS GATLINBURG | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

I would never normally use the word fabulous to describe something, but my my is it appropriate... I really, truly had my reservations about staying in Gatlinburg but it was really not as bad as I thought it would be. Yes, it's pretty tacky and sort of like stepping back in time, but LORD no matter what, … Continue reading FABULOUS GATLINBURG | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

HIKING IN SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK | USA ROAD TRIP 2016

After an early morning filled with the excitement of picking up our rental car and entering a land of dinosaurs, you might think it was about time for a rest. Nope, instead we did the exact opposite; after checking in to Skyland and getting changed, we went for a long ol' hike. Rose River Falls  … Continue reading HIKING IN SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK | USA ROAD TRIP 2016
