Overlooking the Grand Canyon, Lifedge in hand

Life is all about the journey. 

It’s no good just waiting to get to our destination, we have to make the most of the travelling.

What started off as a bucket list has become a desire to encourage others to make the most of their lives by experiencing what life has to offer and creating memories that last a lifetime.

Splodz Blogz is about demonstrating how that is possible, documenting the things I get up to in-between the day job and other commitments, working through my ever-expanding ‘to try’ list (suggestions always welcome!).

My blog is about the experiences, told in a personal, honest and friendly way with a hint of cheerfulness thrown in for good measure.

I want to inspire you to make the most of your time by encouraging you to try new things and have a good time on your journey through life.

"Extreme Tromboning" at Buckstones Edge on Marsden MoorI guess am a tomboy/adventure girl at heart – I love walking, cycling, skiing, getting outdoors, motorbikes (in 2009 I rode a Harley the length of the country for charity), music (I play trombone and bass guitar) and loads of other stuff.

Since I started Splodz Blogz back in January 2010 I’ve had loads of fun working my way through my massive bucket list. I’ve done a skydive and a bungee jump, been on motorcycle tours in the USAIrelandFrance and a massive memorial ride around Great Britain, completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge and the London Moonwalk, tried Fly Boarding and ice climbinglearnt to surf and even gave blood. And that’s just for starters!! Partly as a result of all this I was honoured to be chosen as an Olympic Torchbearer in 2012, which was definitely the best experience of the last five years. I keep being told I’m a little bit crazy, I’m sure that’s in a good way!

Cable Ski at Center Parcs, ElvedenHowever you came across Splodz Blogz I’m so pleased you stopped by. I hope you will follow my ramblings (bloglovin is a good option) and will let me know what you think every now and again by commenting on my posts or getting in touch through social media.

If you have any suggestions for my bucket list (or ‘to try’ list) then make sure you tell me – I am always looking for new ideas, whatever they might be, and ways to make those ideas happen.

And if there is something you want to know about me or any of the activities I get up to, then please ask. You can find me via email or over on twitter, facebook and instagram.
