Cambodia – 5 day itinerary

Cambodia Travel Diaries A week ago I was sweating from sweat glands I didn’t even know existed, unfortunate wet patches forming on my trousers as droplets beaded off my forehead, cheeks, nose, lips, chin, neck, back, chest, tummy, arms, hands, bum, thighs, calves and feet! The only time I wasn’t dripping with sweat was at…

7 Days in the Basque Country

The Basque Country, or as it is called locally, Euskadi, remains very much unchartered territory for the average tourist. A gem of Spain that very few have even heard of, it offers those brave enough to step of the well trodden path with a myriad of surprises which are guaranteed to delight. From fairy tale…

Thailand Travel Diary

As I go through the diaries I wrote whilst in Thailand it is hard to believe that Day 1 was only 2 weeks ago. We managed to pack in so much over those 14 days that it feels like we’ve been away for months. The end of a holiday is always a sad time, but…

Lanzarote Travel Diary

I never expected to be writing a blog about Lanzarote as I never expected to like it quite as much as I did! In my mind it was going to be a slightly different version of Benidorm: package holiday tourists and fish and chips. It just goes to show how you should never judge a…

Rome Travel Diary

I write this nearly 7 months after we return from Rome however my memories of this fantastic city have not eroded and Rome still remains in my mind one of the most beautiful and inspiring capitals. 2 days and an evening were nowhere near enough to even scratch the surface of the history, culture, architecture…

Snowdon Horseshoe

On Saturday 30th May 2015 I set out on what was going to be the most rewarding walk I had done to date. As part of my training for the 10 Peak Challenge I had arranged to go to Snowdonia for two days of proper walking and having climbed Snowdon via Llanberis, Miners and the…

10 Peak Challenge

It is hard to believe that it was only a week ago that I was being picked up by Jason and Beth to set off for our big Scottish Highland Adventure. Some of us were better prepared than others, and some of us had a better understanding of the challenge than others, but Scotland really…

Kiruna, Sweeden

One could definitely say that Kiruna is a bucket list holiday and they would not be wrong. Lapland has always appealed. Why? Because it is so different, because of the Northern Lights, the opportunity to go Husky Sledding and because of the snow. However, the more I looked into it the more I realised I…
