king’s day boating in Amsterdam

I had the good fortune to spend this weekend in Amsterdam with my sister, her partner, their baby and a few friends. It was King’s Day weekend. Starting on Thursday, the buzz around this quaint city filled the streets as people got ready for the evening’s shenanigans to come – marking out with tape the…

Lebanon calling!

After moving to Luxembourg at the start of 2010, I had finally managed to save enough money to go on one of my first holidays in over a decade. For a multitude of reasons, I didn’t see much outside of the UK during this long period in between; mainly, university cost money, and trying to…

ice lake, Norway

You may now have come to realise that I enjoy stepping out of my comfort zone, and giving myself new challenges. I didn’t know if my suggestion of going camping one Saturday in February, in mid-Norway, would go down well with my Norwegian friend, but luckily for me he’s still a big kid at heart,…

sea & sky view

I had the recent pleasure to visit a friend in Trondheim, Norway, for a week. I have a few more photos and a story or two to share with you, but thought to give you a taster of what it was like up there last weekend. The fjord stretched out To the shore at the…

everyone is free…

…to wear sunscreen. A friend of mine reintroduced this song into my life yesterday – I haven’t heard it in 20 years but I totally relate to it. Don’t waste another moment of your life. Dream big, and act. Be an #achievementhunter Then come tell me all about it!

Back in 2016, I had decided that I was quite bored of living in a city, and working for an investment fund. I was becoming quite lazy – essentially losing my will to do anything positive or life-changing for myself. I was so focused on short-term, less than fulfilling, distractions, such as social media, and…

a delicious day to dance

Sweltering Sunday surrounds me with sunny yellow glows on backdrops of pure blue, and green, green grass. A delicious day to dance. Written content is © All rights are reserved. August 2017.

seek, see, love and do

A beautiful friend of mine found the following on Facebook and linked me to it… I think she could tell how fully I can relate, and I love her all the more for knowing my soul inside out: I would rather pass my days lying in the middle of dirt roads, staring at the full…

enjoying a winter wonderland

Where have I been the last couple of months? Well, I am not going to kid myself and say that there has been anyone who reads this blog who has actually thought that, but I’d like to stroke my own ego for a moment… I have actually been all over the place, and really didn’t…

Home…?!

Home. Funny word that. Home is where my parents are. Or the hotel in whichever country I am travelling around. Or my bedroom in my flat share. Or my sisters’ flats, when they cook me good food. Or my friends’ homes, when I stay overnight. I have always felt like I am still searching for…

I love those moments…

I drive along country roads in autumn; warm, vibrant, coloured leaves fall from the trees, dancing, twirling around the top of the car in front, and swirling in a mini hurricane that I drive through unseen. Waking up on a Saturday morning in my own bed, not hungover, and realising I don’t have to work…
