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.

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
