• Visiting South Africa – the itinerary

    October 6, 2019

    It’s been awhile – I almost thought I’d forgotten my blog password! Luckily I’m in and I’m back to talk about South Africa. South Africa was one of those holidays which I will always look back on in awe – it was amazing. I don’t think I’ll be able to properly explain how great it…

    September 30, 2018

    I’ve been getting really into my staycations this year. I mean, I do love a 3 week jaunt across the other side of the world. But when you’re wanting something a bit more relaxing, then there’s nothing better than just piling into the car (or train!) and popping to somewhere within the UK. And where…
