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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Day trip to Slovenia’s capital city – Ljubljana

While we were staying at Lake Bled, we had to visit Slovenia’s capital and largest city – Ljubljana. The city with colour, culture and lots of cafés. We arrived at Ljubljana in the morning, after about 45 minutes on a coach. God bless the tour guide, she’s there talking away about the history and culture […]

Walking in the Julian Alps to Mount Triglav

What an adventure climbing the highest peak in Slovenia, Mount Triglav was.. My brother text me one day, saying ‘Shall we climb Mount Triglav when we’re in Slovenia?’. My first thought was, not a chance! I can not climb a hill, never mind a mountain. But, I told him I’d think a about it. The […]

Roseberry Topping

Todays adventures took us to Roseberry Topping, on the Cleveland Way in Redcar and Cleveland. It’s located at Great Ayton, the boyhood home of the great explorer, Captain Cook. First of all, it seemed to take us ages to get to there! I’ve never seen Driffield and Malton so busy. With it being a beautiful […]
