Friday Favourites: Land Down Under

Well, well, it is Friday again already! Where is this year disappearing to? Well, another Friday means another Friday Favourites. A few weeks, I put off writing a post about all my favourites places down under and did a cruise filled post full of favourite tit-bits. But I can’t put off Australia no longer, so here is a selection of my favourite places in Australia (finally).

Friday favourites is a fortnightly post featuring travel tips, guides, advice, and thoughts based on my travel experiences! Continue reading

Roseau, Dominica

Dominica, the island I had been most looking forward to visiting, the island that wowed me most while I was there, the island that made me want to go back, and the island that instantly became my favourite. It is easy to see how it got the name ‘The Nature Isle’, and of all the islands, it is the one that I am most pleased we got a tour for!

Welcome to Dom-in-eek-kaa! Continue reading

The Liebster Award

So, the lovely Jessica @ Ever the Crafter nominated me for the Liebster Award a few weeks ago. It took me a while to think of 11 questions, and people to nominate, but, well, there we go. I may have, well, erm, stolen some from other people, or at least taken inspiration from others, but yes. The questions and answers.

To start with, the rules:

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and answer the 11 questions they’ve written for you.

Basseterre, St. Kitts and Nevis

Do you know what is great to celebrate with a beer, in the sun, on a Caribbean Island? Pay day. Yep, that is what I did on the second stop of our cruise ship. St. Kitts and Nevis is a volcanic island full of friendly people, and while it has lots of beaches (if we’re honest, doesn’t every Caribbean Island) we shunned that in favour of seeing more of the capital Bassetterre, and spending money.  Continue reading

New Years Resolution: 1st Quarter Check In

At the end of last year, I decided to compile a list of resolutions for 2017 in the hope of improving various aspects of my life. I set myself some rather large goals, and as I have a tendency to set them and the completely forget what they are, I have decided to check in with my progress over the year. So, now as a quarter of the year has gone, it seems like the perfect time to check my progress for January, February, and March. Just to recap, my New Years Resolutions can be found here.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

When you think of the Caribbean, you think of white sandy beaches, and clear blue waters. You think of palm tress and coconuts. You think of doing nothing all day but relaxing in the sun, in the warmth, with a book, taking the odd dip in the sea. Well, you’re pretty much thinking of the British Virgin Islands.

Adulting: Post-Holiday

Holidays, vacations, trips, breaks, whatever you like to call them, they are great. We get away from the mundane and repetitive existence of home and working life, and explore new places, see new things, taste new food and drinks, and (usually) relax. And then you get home, and everything that was going on before you went away is still going on, and there is stuff you need to do that you didn’t realise was a thing. Why is adulting so hard?
