Why I Feel Travel Can be the Key to Growth and Wellbeing

A lot of the things that have made me question the way I thought, or made my perception of things change, have been things that happened while travelling.…

Road Trip With a Difference – The Scottish Highlands

September 19, 2018

We had been warned about the famous Scottish rain. We had been told that Scotland only experiences 57 totally dry days a year where the ground isn’t soaked with rain. Well. The weather Gods were shining on us. In our 6 days in Scotland we saw rain one day, for about an hour. Give me a bagpipe and call me a Highland Coo, we had…

Climbing Ben Nevis – Conquering More Than A Mountain

September 13, 2018

  Stepping out of the car, the butterflies in my stomach were dancing the quickstep. Rolling and pitching, producing a feeling of half excitement, half terror.

We have just returned from 12 days on the Cape verde island of Boa Vista. If you don’t know where Cape verde is, its a collection of 10 islands, around a 6 hour flight from London, just off the coast of Africa. An increasingly popular holiday destination now, but the islands have a rather dark past as in the 1400’s, they were used to trade…

Mary Poppins Afternoon Tea – Practically Perfect at Aqua Shard London

August 13, 2018

“Open different doors. You may find another you there, that you never knew was yours. Anything can happen” I love this quote from the Mary Poppins film. As a little girl I think it was possibly the first time that I realised anything was possible. That we shouldn’t ever write ourselves off. I have always remembered it, and Mary Poppins was my hero for a…
