Getting Three Months off Work and other #Zartusacan Questions

With just a couple of working days to go until we finish work for eleven whole weeks (SO close!), I thought I should write a little post on here to address some of the most common #Zartusacan questions that we’ve been asked recently. Riding in Scotland. Well, stopping.  How did you manage to get three

My Road Trip Wash Kit

I was going to make this a part of my “travelling light” series, but realised that while I have been quite limited with the stuff I’ve packed for this trip, I’m not really travelling light when it comes to my wash kit. So instead this will just be a #Zartusacan preparation post, which you seem

Currently Loving: April 2016

Wow this year is going FAST! It could do with slowing down a little to be honest; I hope the next three months don’t go as quickly as the last three. But anyway, it might be a week late but welcome to my latest Currently Loving post, an opportunity for me to present ten of

Wild Sea, New Forest Pony Hunt, Kitchen Drawer | Weekly Vlog 20

Evening all. How has your week been? I hope you had a good Easter. Bit of a bonus week on Splodz Blogz TV this week – weekly vlog 19 is a nine day vlog. This week you get a road trip to a rather special wedding, a walk along the sea in the wind, exploring the New Forest

Exploring Bridgnorth. And Litterbugs.

Doing your bit to look after our planet is as simple as picking up your litter. Or should I say not chucking it on the floor in the first place. But more of that in a moment…  I love a good explore around a town that I’ve never been to before. Or rather in the

Cliff Railway Ride | Weekly Vlog 16

Sixteen weeks! This thing is becoming a habit 🙂 I hope you’re enjoying the vlogs and appreciate that I’m telling my story in this way. The highlight this week was taking a ride on the Cliff Railway in Bridgnorth when I was over there for a work event in the middle of the week.  I had some time to

Currently Loving: March 2016

Who doesn’t like having nice things? I’ve been really trying to reduce the amount of “stuff” I have cluttering up the place, but there is definitely still room in my life for good stuff and nice treats. So the currently loving blog series continues. Here are ten of the things I am enjoying right now.

A Night at the Premier Inn Blackpool Beach

Last weekend I headed off on a road trip to Blackpool. I had a 9am appointment to keep on Saturday morning (more on that another day), and with the other side of the country being a three hour drive away, I was very pleased when I was offered somewhere to stay so I didn’t have

Orlando for Adults – My Tips

Orlando, Florida, is a very well-known family oriented holiday destination for us Brits. It’s somewhere that mum’s and dad’s save up for years to take their kids while they are still into fairies, princesses, superheroes and singing cartoon characters. I didn’t go to Orlando until I was 24 years old, and when I went I

Goals and Challenges for 2016 | My Purpose

I find January hard. It’s dark outside most of the time, generally quite cold, there is little time to get outside and enjoy the countryside, I’m tired, work is busy, and EVERYONE is talking resolutions. We are encouraged, maybe not directly but certainly by inference, to promise ourselves lots of things that will make us better people – eat more

Southampton for Tea | Weekly Vlog 9

It’s Sunday so it must be time for another episode of my weekly vlog. We’re on episode nine now – the weeks are going so fast!  The highlight of my week was definitely my road trip down to Southampton to meet friends for tea. The 400 mile round trip was actually very enjoyable, and for very good reason.

Zartusacan! Road Trip Update

When I introduced our road trip to you back in July I put a note at the bottom asking for suggestions for a name… well it’s been a long time coming due to lack of creativity on my part, but we finally have something thanks to a great friend who thought about it A LOT on
