In an unexpected – and wholly welcomed – visit from my best friend last week who returned on a surprise whim from Cambodia for Christmas, it got me thinking about my New Years’ resolution post from last week. Discussing the benefits of setting yourself more positive goals as opposed to the generic ones we see...Read More
With the schools now close to breaking up for the summer holidays and the weather (almost) holding up its end of the bargain for a summer season, the talk of holidays is on everyone’s lips. While many may venture off to the sunnier climes of Europe, others may be tempted to venture even further afield....Read More
Nestled in the heart of the Western Cape countryside, far from the traffic and the noise of the city is a place you have to see to believe. Set down a dust track road in the quaint town of Franschhoek is Farm Sanctuary. This idyllic retreat was established in 2016 by Joanne Lefson on World Farm...Read More
Roughly a two hour flight and a short taxi ride from the UK lies the centre of Palma, an underrated weekend break destination that is definitely worth a visit. From culture, history and shopping, to a picturesque waterfront and fantastic food, Palma really does have it all. The current place to stay is the Scandinavian owned Hotel...Read More
If I had to use one word to describe myself, other than painfully organised, it would have to be cautious! And yes the exclamation point is necessary! Ok that one went a bit far. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I’m a person who likes to evaluate risk; think Ruben in Along Came...Read More

Hopefully I won’t have to think on my feet at all, because...Read More

I met a girl like that in Thailand, a six foot tall Australian who had picked her way to the WFFT animal rescue centre via a series of buses and...Read More
In November, to break the monotony of everyday life I went to Oslo for a week. I’d been wanting to go for a while, and every Scandinavian country is on my list as I like the general culture and history of that part of the world. Oslo has plenty of that and it certainly didn’t...Read More
Hello from Iceland! This is my third trip here and I’m out in the sticks. A beautifully situated mini cabin with a mountain on one side and a bay on the other. The scenery here is truly spectacular, I could be a happy hermit here, occasionally scuttling out for supplies but mostly either frolicking around...Read More
The first elephant I met in Thailand, venturing nervously into a wild animal’s enclosure and fairly sure I was going to die, was called Nam Chok. Back then, there were seven elephant residents at the rescue centre where I volunteered, and the day after my fifteen hour flight and hour long drive I was thrown...Read More
