Thames RIB Experience

What’s the best way to see London? Some say from the river is the best place, on a boat trip. Something I’ve done in other cities around the world, but never in my own capital city to my recollection. The other Saturday I changed that by going on a Thames RIB Experience – not your

My #MobileTravelChallenge – Join in!

I love going on little travel adventures. And big ones. And when I do, I love to take photographs on my phone in an attempt to keep hold of the memories that each journey provides. My phone is forever tied to my hand and once I’ve stopped and taken in the view for myself, had

Walking The Stephen Langton Trail

The Stephen Langton Trail is a newly devised walking route celebrating 800 years since the sealing of the Magna Carta. The 16.5 mile trail takes walkers from Langton-by-Wragby into Lincoln itself. I’ll let you read about the history over on the Visit Lincoln page dedicated to it, this post is all about the walking. Langton-by-Wragby

Guest Post: Five of the Best Walking Trails in Europe

Today we are treated to a guest post by Rachel Campbell on one of my favourite topics – walking. Rachel considers five of the best walking trails in Europe. Be warned, this post make you want to travel!  We are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by vast, open landscapes and astonishing scenery in the UK and just across the

A Standup Paddleboard (SUP) Lesson

SUP – Standup Paddleboarding (or stand up paddleboarding or stand-up paddle boarding or however you are actually supposed to write it) – has been on my bucket list for a little while. I have always loved water sports and this is one of the few I haven’t had the opportunity to try. That was until

Tips for your Day Hike Pack

There are two types of people when it comes to packing for any kind of trip. The most common type, I think, are those who pack too much. An extra pair of pants, extra socks, extra food, extra shoes. I definitely include myself in that – for anything more than one night I tend to bring something home un-used. The

Views from Lincolnshire, and Some Facts

Lincolnshire gets lots of mentions here on Splodz Blogz. No surprise really, as it’s where I live. I moved here back in 1997 with my parents when they relocated for work. We’ve done a lot of relocating over the years and this is where we ended up when I was at that moving-out age, so this is where

Exploring Bristol – Clifton Suspension Bridge

I strongly believe that adventure (today’s BEDM topic), is there to be found wherever you are and whatever you are doing. It is, after all, a state of mind rather than a verb with a written-in-stone definition.  When I was away for work recently the weather was gorgeous and with several hours to kill before sunset the last

Afternoon Tea at Bettys

One of the things I like to stress is that living life to the full – enjoying the journey – is not only about adventurous experiences or travelling to distant lands. There is everything right with enjoying the finer things in life, and close to home. Last weekend LincsGeek and I headed up to Harrogate, one

My Travel Bucket List – Transun Competition Entry

Seeing the Northern Lights is quite possibly the thing that sits at the top of the vast majority of people’s bucket lists. It’s certainly got a very definite place on mine, and is one of the original entries. Despite having been to Finnish Lapland a couple of times I am yet to see the sneaky

Adding to my Bucket List… Again

I feel like a stuck record when I say that my bucket list is “ever expanding”. The fact is that is really is – I add things to the end of the list as and when they come to mind. It might be that I suddenly think of things that might be fun to do,

Exploring Nature’s Spaces in Lincoln

Earlier on the year, in an effort to make sure I made time for some long walks before I attempt the Lyke Wake Walk in June, I earmarked a number of Saturdays when I wasn’t at work or doing anything else and blocked them out. The calendar appointment for most of them says “Long Walk”.
