The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 44 #SplodzWPC

I don’t know about you, but I am definitely struggling with the dark mornings and evenings at the moment. So to keep this topical, This week I thought it would be good to celebrate “darkness” in a photo challenge kind of way – maybe that’ll help me wake up a bit. And of course if you

Currently Loving: October 2016

Ahhhh October, the month that Autumn really gets going making everything outside super colourful, but equally the month that the mornings and evenings grow darker and darker meaning I can’t see that beautiful colour most days. Anyway, time for my monthly favourites blog post, a chance for me to gather a few things together that I’m particularly enjoying

Winter Camping – Tips to Keep you Cosy and Comfy

Today I’m publishing a guest post by Rachel Campbell all about winter camping… having spent a weekend under canvas this October I can confirm her tips are super useful! Camping used to be seen as a summer activity, thanks to the warmer weather and the wealth of outdoor activities to enjoy with friends and family. However more

One Hour Outside November 2016 #OneHourOutside

We all know that getting outside is good for us. There are so many reasons why we should be making an effort to spend as much time outdoors as possible – fresh air and natural light is good for our body, our mind, and possibly most importantly, our soul. But how good are we at

Weekend in Snowdonia | Splodz Blogz TV

I haven’t done this for a while, but here’s a vlog documenting the Outdoor Bloggers weekend in Snowdonia. I organised the weekend with Jenni from The Thrifty Magpies Nest because we wanted to combine our love of getting outside with a meet up for other people who profess to like the same things… we were joined by 17 bloggers

Map Geekery and Getting Outside

Did you know that a quarter of people in the UK feel that a 15 minute walk is too far and they will take the car instead? Wow. 15 minutes is too far to walk?! And… when 2,000 people from the UK took part in a survey, only 40% of them could put London in

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 43 #SplodzWPC

It’s been a little quiet on here for the last week for which I apologise; life has been a bit busy what with the Outdoor Bloggers weekend and work and everything else. It just means there hasn’t been any time left for putting words and pictures together for Splodz Blogz. Normal service will be resumed as

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 42 #SplodzWPC

Humans have pretty much taken over the planet, but there are still places where wildlife roam free and can go about their routine without being interrupted by us. This week I want to see your photos of “natural habitat” – yours, your pets, or in fact anything.  Check out #SplodzWPC on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Week 42 Theme: Natural Habitat  

Going to the Sun in Glacier National Park

Shivering with cold, soaked through to the skin and dripping water all over the floor, I asked the lady behind the counter in A&W for whatever was their most popular meal. I was so cold and wet that I had lost any ability to make basic decisions, and the happy lady and her work experience

Theme Park Day Pack Essentials

Spending a day at a theme park, whether it be somewhere as iconic as Disney’s Magic Kingdom or Universal Islands of Adventure over in Orlando Florida, or something closer to home like Alton Towers, is unlike any other day out you might experience. Once you leave the car park you generally don’t have the opportunity to go back

Share Your Outdoors

This post combines a few things that I love… the outdoors, challenges and photography. Last week I got a little message from Lucy over at Paddle Peddle Pace (great blog if you’re looking for something new to read) to say she’d tagged me in an outdoor photography competition I just had to check it out. And this is

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 41 #SplodzWPC

Is it bed time yet? I admit that I am SO shattered at the moment. My body and mind are tired and I have been trying to mitigate that in lots of ways. But the fact is that every morning I wake up looking forward to the evening, and those few minutes before I close
