    It has finally been time for a holiday! When I was planning out this years travel plans, the majority of them all centre around our big trip to South Africa in September with my family. But I still really wanted to pop in a shorter break for just Paul and I. We umm’d and ahh’d…

    September 11, 2018

    I’ve wanted to visit the Isle of Wight for aaaages. Like proper ages. It’s where my grandparents went on their honeymoon and I worked down by Portsmouth for a year and was constantly staring out over to that little island in the bay. So when Erica informed me that we were taking a wee weekend…
