Oh Iona, you beauty

Today’s adventure took us to the Isle of Iona. We caught the first ferry from Fionnphort which was at 9:55am. It cost £3.50 for a return to Iona and took 10 mins. Don’t think that’s bad when you pay £10 to get to Hull from Driffield, return. The views on Iona were just breathtaking. Abbey […]

‘Mull of surprises’

I’m currently writing this while laid in my tent. On a beach. Listening to the wind hit my tent and the waves rolling along the shore. Helen had mentioned that she was planning a trip to the Isle of Mull and Iona on Saturday. Today is Monday and I am currently in Mull, grateful for […]

Running: The literal high and lows

I’ve now been going out for running since April 1st and it is true to say that running and I have a love, hate relationship. Since the 1st April, I have been trying to go out for runs at least 3/4 times a week, with no aim distance, or time in my head but to […]

Puffins at RSPB Bempton Cliffs!

“Get lost in nature and you will find yourself” It was a glorious Sunday afternoon and I had finished work early, which is a rarity, so we headed to the coast. We pondered where to go and we were heading to Hornsea, and I just mentioned to Jack ‘we should have gone to Bempton Cliffs’. […]

Angry Cows on the Yorkshire Wolds Way

I hadn’t seen one of my best friends from home for what seemed like months. So I text her to say I was home, and as she knows me so well. Her response was – ‘shall we go for a walk?’ Eh, hell yeah Kel! So, after contemplating where to go in the Wolds; we […]

You never truly love something, until you appreciate it.

I was born in Scarborough but raised in Driffield. Driffield is the Capital of the Wolds in East Yorkshire. The Wolds are full of peaceful scenery, rolling hills and lots of wildlife. Growing up in Driffield was boring. During my teenage years I would do anything to get on the train or bus and go […]

Commute to the Peak District – Mam Tor circular walk

Having been stuck in my flat for the last few weeks; writing my dissertation and another assignment – the hills were calling. But there was only one problem, I can’t drive yet 😭 I know, twenty-one and can’t drive – tragic. I am learning but I had to stop whilst I was on teaching practice, […]

A morning at Beningbrough Hall and Gardens

The weather is absolutely shite at the moment, but I NEEDED to get out of my flat into the fresh air of the countryside so today’s trip was to Beningbrough Hall and Gardens, North Yorkshire. Beningbrough Hall is located 8 miles away from the beautiful city of York and is surrounded by such breathtaking grounds […]

The Mood-booster Bella

You’ve heard the saying ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’, but I’ve found a better saying – ‘a dog is everyone’s best friend.’ Bella has come to stay with me in York this week as I am in the flat on my own. My best friends and flat mates have gone home or gone on […]
