Have (some) money, will travel

Have you ever wanted to do something or go somewhere but it’s never actually materialised into anything? Was it because of being too afraid of the risks? Or that you may have to do it alone? Or of the possibility that something could go wrong? I know I have, hasn’t everyone!? Holding back from doing…

Westival

Westival 2018 This unique festival situated in the heart of the Pembrokeshire countryside is a new edition to the music scene in Wales, supporting local artists as well as known names from further afield. With 2018 being it’s first year, Westival is still a baby in comparison to festival giants such as Boardmasters and Glastonbury,…

A Different Kind Of Christmas

“Do your research. Read labels. Buy less. Buy local. And support brands that care.” Christmas is coming, we’re in the countdown stage and already some enthusiastic neighbors have excessive neon lights and decorations blinding you from their sitting room windows. ‘Tis the season to be jolly (although slightly annoying). Christmas is less than 4 weeks…

Get The Boys A Lift

I recently wrote an article for a local newspaper called The Western Telegraph about Get The Boys A Lift, a not for profit organization based here in Pembrokeshire helping local and national mental health organizations (and if you haven’t already heard of them, where have you been?!)   The organization was set up in 2016…

How do you measure success?

It’s funny how the more and more I talk to different people about success, the more I dislike the word and wonder how this “thing” can be categorized at all. Success is COMPLETELY different to each and every one of us. Take a minute to think about it. What comes to mind when you hear…

BALI

Island Hopping in Indonesia

So with plans to go from Komodo to Flores and back, we didn’t quite make it all that way unfortunately. It’s a hard realisation when you find you’re running out of time in a country that needs sooo much of it to explore. But yes, our time was running low (and our money even lower…)…

1 Year Post-Uni…

So, today marks exactly a year since my graduation from Falmouth. I wanted to write a little post about the past year (almost a year since I began this blog too), mainly for myself…to look back on what has happened over the past 12 months, and just because it’s always good to check in with yourself…

Snaps from Sri Lanka

I remember flying into Sri Lanka and the first sight we saw was a country covered in massive palm trees (a sure sign of tropical paradise ???) We travelled from Colombo down the West coast to the Southern province all the way to Yala on the East and then back through the jungle center –…

Wild Rajasthan

Rajasthan – a wild desert state. We stayed in two separate cities, completely different and each breathtakingly beautiful. Jaipur – The Pink City Called the Pink City due to all the buildings within the walled historic centre painted a terracotta pink colour, this is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve seen. Not meaning to…
