So it took some sweet ass time for me to write the post about Wales with Pete and there was a gap between that and the one before that. Have been a bit busy with life, so this is a wee update of what I’ve been up to.Continue reading “Life Update”
Disclaimer – I have definitely procrastinated in writing this, bit of life getting in the way and my own lack of drive, so it isn’t in the exact order of everything we did, but I’ve included all the stuff we loved!
Back in June my lovely friend Pete asked me if I would join him on his family holiday to North Wales as part of his PA team.Continue reading “Wandering Around (North) Wales”
My job is supporting people with spinal cord injuries live their daily lives, and one of the people I work with loves cycling. Late April he took on the challenge of the Mallorca 312 (doing the 167km option) on his handcycle, which means I got to go along to the wonderful Balearic Island of Mallorca.Continue reading “Meandering Around Mallorca”
After last year’s lockdown birthday I wanted to something this year for my 31st. I decided to stick with Scotland, still wanting to explore, but most importantly, wanting somewhere with a hot tub.Continue reading “Aikenhead House – The Cottage”
I didn’t want to spend Christmas alone, nor did I want to spend it at home. The state of the world meant that going overseas for a European Christmas would be that much harder with the varying rules for different countries, but I still wanted to go ‘abroad’.
Enter Northern Ireland.Continue reading “Christmas in Northern Ireland”
A long, long time ago – pre-Corona, my friend Lizzy and I decided to book Harry Potter and the Cursed Child for her 30th birthday celebration.Continue reading “A Long Weekend in London”
In August I went on a 3 week solo road trip around the Outer Hebrides.
I love reading about other people’s travels but I find that a lot of people don’t include price lists – and when you’re working to a budget you want to know what the cost of things are!
I’ve tried to compile a comprehensive list of what I spent my money on, but I’m sure I forgot about the odd pack of crisps or something!Continue reading “The Outer Hebrides”
Get comfy for a long read because all I’ve really done on this trip is eat at different (and sometimes the same) places! If you’re more interesting in lunch bites or takeaway, scroll on down to near the end.Continue reading “Outer Hebrides trip – Food”
I like organising trips. And my friends and I like skiing (they are all better at it than me). So I organised a trip back out to Winter Park, this time for a group of 8 of us. I may have left it a bit late in the year to organise an overseas ski trip, however Caro and the team at The National Sports Centre for the Disabled in Winter Park, Colorado were AMAZING. We had five adaptive skiers and Caro was able to secure instructors and volunteers for us for a trip out in early March this year.
