Feature on SurfGirl

GUYS, I wrote an article similar to my blog post about Women and Surfing in Sri Lanka – and it’s now featured on the SurfGirl website along with my images! Click the link below to read πŸ™‚ I’m so happy that my words and images are being used to support and recognise the work of…

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…)…

Self Love Club

Hello from Sri Lanka (and a bandaged together Ellie) πŸ‘‹πŸΌ I’ve been travelling for 3 months now and mostly it’s been pretty much plain sailing. Yes we’ve had ups and downs, things haven’t happened as we’d planned and we’ve had to miss out or not do things that we thought. There’s been the occasional missed…

Singapore: can you fall in love with a city?

Said to be “The cleanest city in the world,” Singapore is definitely a good contender for this title. Landing in Singapore felt like a completely different world to the tiny Thai airport we’d just left. Everything was so BIG and so clean. The first thing we did was grab a tourist MRT (underground/metro) card and…

Southern Thai Islands

Southern Thailand is a paradise in itself. It’s surprising how different it is to the North and Central parts, each offering something completely unique. The leafy forested North and metropolitan center of Thailand are worlds away from each other and even more so than the beachy idillic South. The islands we loved the most were…
