3 months to go until the Big Day

3 months to go until the Big Day

14th August 2019 No Comment
So here we are, well within 3 months of the Big Day. I experienced a bit of a lull with around 3 months and 2 weeks to go and I felt like the Wedding would never arrive. But moving on a couple of weeks and I feel the time hurtling away from us like nobody’s […]

9 things you should do during a day visit to Gibraltar

2nd July 2019 No Comment
Gibraltar – a little slice of Britain located between Spain and Morocco. We have family who live in La Linea in Spain, just across the border from Gibraltar so it’s become a bit of a routine for us to visit every other year. Unfortunately, this year is an off year but we’re really hoping we’ll […]

I honestly can’t believe that two months have passed since I wrote my 6 months to go wedding update: the wedding countdown is really on now!! Excuse the double exclamation marks, but it’s coming around at breakneck speed and I’m getting so excited. Sometimes I feel like we’re not getting anywhere with our preparations, but […]

5 beautiful nature spots in North Wales

3rd June 2019 No Comment
OK, so I’m totally fangirling about Wales right now – particularly north Wales. We went there for a week-long family break last month and I honestly think it’s so underrated! Every time I told someone where we were going it was usually met with some degree of confusion as it’s possibly not the most obvious […]

Snowdon – the highest mountain in Wales at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level. It’s also one of the highest mountains in the whole of the UK and features as one of the climbs in the famous Three Peaks challenge (the other two being Ben Nevis in Scotland and Scafell Pike in England). […]

With just over 6 months to go now until the wedding (where has the time gone?!), I thought it was high time for a destination wedding update! I know, are you as excited as me right now?! So, where are we at? We’re not doing too badly to be honest. I’m not going to lie, […]

This is a strange one for me to write this year as it’s been a good few years since I haven’t had a constant stream of travel lined up as the New Year comes around! Many of you will know that I left my job with travel last year and am now spending much more […]

The Falkland Arms, Great Tew

5th January 2019 No Comment
We had a lovely end to 2018 when we went for the first of what will hopefully be many weekend walks in the Cotswolds. The Cotswolds is a beautiful region of England and it’s not too far for us to drive there from our home in Northamptonshire. We took a circular walk around the Great […]

What I’ve been up to this month – December 2018

31st December 2018 No Comment
December… always a manic month for most people I imagine! I love Christmas and it’s my birthday just before, but will anyone really blame me if I say I’m (not so) secretly glad it’s nearly over? I think it’s a beautiful time of year with lots of festive events, catching up with old friends and […]
