A Welsh Summer

You might think I’m lying, but summer in Pembrokeshire has become one of my favourite things in the world. I’ve always lived by the sea, but in a small seaside town, winters can be quiet and (sometimes) pretty bleak. Dark stormy nights become rainy grey days, the winds can be bitterly cold and no one…

THE ONLY GIRL – ISSUE 67

โœจSO EXCITED to share that my images and an article I wrote have been published in the latest issue of SurfGirl Magazine (!!!) – This magazine has been a source of inspiration to me for years, especially as a teenager, and encouraged me to stick at surfing as a young girl. The beautiful images and…

Surf Photography in Southern Sri Lanka

One of the reasons for my month long trip to Sri Lanka was to get in the water and improve my photography amongst the waves. Shooting in the surf is a lot more difficult than people imagine and you have to have some knowledge of that environment before you even get in. Tides, currents, rips…

Saving water (& plastic & money) whilst travelling

One of the most annoying things about travelling is trying not to be so wasteful, especially when it comes to single use plastics. Buying bottled water in different countries is one of my biggest pet peeves. I would never go near a plastic water bottle at home, but feel forced to look in that direction…

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…

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

This is definitely the hardest post to write about my travels, because it is indeed the last for now. BALI. What a place, it really really is a surfers paradise and a place I could quite happily spend a lot more of my time. Starting in a jungle we explored Ubud, Seminyak, Kuta, Canggu and…

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…)…
