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’. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tour around Treasurer’s House, York

Seen as it was a nice day and Jack and I are National Trust members, we walked into York city centre and visited the Treasurer’s House. The building was originally built for Treasurers of York Minster and then was owned by a wealthy collector until 1930. Then he kindly gave it to the National Trust […]
