MY HAND LUGGAGE ESSENTIALS

When it comes for paying for luggage on a short haul flight, unless I'm going to the arctic, I avoid it like the plague. Yes, airlines are getting more and more restrictive but I like the challenge. Of course, if you're going for an extended period of time, yes you will need more clothing etc … Continue reading MY HAND LUGGAGE ESSENTIALS

A SURPRISE CAR | WEEK 1 IN CANADA

So I posted a while back about the fact that Hamilton and I were moving to Canada. Well, little update... We have now moved to Canada. Huge apologies for not mentioning it sooner. I intended on posting a hell of a lot more about the whole thing but somehow didn't manage it. I don't think … Continue reading A SURPRISE CAR | WEEK 1 IN CANADA

PARIS IN AUTUMN | WEEKEND WANDERING

Shred the missing posters. Stand down the news. We are still alive and in fact, very well. So well, that we've managed to make a 13 minute video of a 4 day jolly in Paris. The leaves were on the ground. Rain fell from the sky. Cold shrouded us. It was autumn and it was … Continue reading PARIS IN AUTUMN | WEEKEND WANDERING

VANCOUVER ISLAND | PLANES AND WHALES | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

That's right. Canadian Road Trip TWENTY SIXTEEN. Sorry to have ever so slightly dropped off the edge of the earth. Sadly I don't have any kind of wilderness survival story that stopped me from writing; I haven't trekked through the Himalayas or canoed down the Amazon. Instead, I got a new job. A job where I … Continue reading VANCOUVER ISLAND | PLANES AND WHALES | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

A DAY IN SEATTLE | RUNNING AROUND IN DRESSING GOWNS | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

MOTIF SEATTLE After a long, dark bus ride involving a super fun stop off at the US border (my fourth of this trip), we made it to Seattle safe and sound where we jumped in a cab for the short journey to our hotel. We stayed at the Motif Seattle, which now has to be … Continue reading A DAY IN SEATTLE | RUNNING AROUND IN DRESSING GOWNS | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

VANCOUVER DAY 1 | + SEATTLE(?!) | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

Looking back it's crazy how much you can fit in during a day whilst traveling. All day at a desk plus a few things after work every now and again is so far from that, I almost can't believe it. This makes it all the more lovely to look back and see how much we managed … Continue reading VANCOUVER DAY 1 | + SEATTLE(?!) | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

KAMLOOPS TO VANCOUVER | ROCKY MOUNTAINEER | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

This was very much an exciting day; our last one on the Rocky Mountaineer, to our penultimate destination of the trip (Vancouver) where we were going to my Great Aunt's house for the first time.    We slept fairly well in Kamloops, but I always find that whenever I have to wake up early it hinders me being … Continue reading KAMLOOPS TO VANCOUVER | ROCKY MOUNTAINEER | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016
