It’s November. Halloween has been and gone, the shops are plastered from wall to wall, floor to ceiling with all things Christmas, and this month, it’s my birthday. If I’m honest, I didn’t accept my 21st birthday very well, or my 22nd, and certainly not my 25th. This year, I am once again face with a slight feeling of getting older with nothing to show for it, so, this year, I am going to try and make it my mission to change that. So, I decided to make a motivational list of things that I want to do between now and my next milestone birthday. Here’s my 30 before 30 list:
It’s Wednesday again, and as it’s the middle of the week, so, I have decided to break the week up with a lovely travel tag that I found on Nikki’s blog @ Travelling With Nikki: A Blog of my travels around the world. I don’t know who the original poster is, so if you do please comment below so I can recognise them and their awesome questions!
I love answering travel tags, because they really make me think about the places I’ve been and the way I look at travel and travelling. I don’t think about many of these things unless I am about to go on a trip, or someone asks the questions, so it’s nice to put your thoughts down on paper!
Let’s get on with the show: Continue reading
I was looking for an enjoyable tag that wasn’t related to anything in particular, and stumbled across this little gem over at the blog: Emma @ Life of Gibbers. It’s a nice little introduction to random things about you, that are nicely personal without being intrusive, and give a wide idea of what I’m like and who I am than a usual bookish tag. Let’s get rollin’.
1. What is your middle name?
My middle name is a cheeky palindrome: Hannah
2. What was your favourite subject at school?
I really enjoyed both science and geography, which is probably why my degree is a BSc in Geography really.
3. What is your favourite drink?
I do love a good coffee, but I am also partial to a good glass of cold lemonade. And not sprite or some other rubbish version, proper, cloudy lemonade. Continue reading
I’ve wanted to visit Antigua for a while. For me, Antigua is a proper Caribbean island. It’s one of the big holiday destinations I’ve dreamed of going to. I’ve watched many a cricket game on the TV broadcast from St. Johns and thought I’d really like to visit there one day. My Mum had said the same, so when we saw the cruise that went there, we decided that was the one for us. St. Johns was the fourth of our 5 island stops, and instead of blindly wandering around the island, we organised a tour in advance and joined 4 others in a detailed and informative island tour.
*It’s taken a long time to get back round to posting this. In light of recent events, I decided now was the perfect time to write about our amazing day. <! Continue reading
I really want to be able to put something more clever together than WOW, but there is nothing I can say or do to put down our experiences of Indy into words. The city itself is beautiful, and vibrant, but is only a tip of the iceberg in terms of what the people, the city, and the culture offers. I’ve had a chance to cross off some incredible things on this trip, and for that I am very lucky, but Indy? WOW.
From sporting institutions like the Indy 500 and Indianapolis Colts, to bike and Segway tours through the historic neighbourhoods, to gondola rides down the main canal, it has everything.
When you think of traveling across the American Midwest, it doesn’t necessarily make you think of southern hospitality. When you go through bourbon cities, it’s not a given that your mind jumps to sporting insulting institutions and champions, or Oscar winners.
This trip is going from strength to strength and Louisville; you packed on hell of a (friendly) punch.
