After leaving the UK at the end of January for a third time travelling, my family have set up a project on social media as a means of keeping in touch through creativity; an Instagram account under the name of Mooshles. A completely random word but meaningful to us, with a sense of being together. The idea … More Mooshles
After a tumble of emotions leaving Goa (not a fave and probably could give it a miss if you’re travelling around India) we took our first train journey to our next state, Karnataka, to the little town of Hampi. Indian Trains But first we took an eight-hour train ride during the day from Goa to … More Goa to Hampi
Welcome to India – hard to find food, confusing service, Delhi belly, mosquitoes, hagglers and well the most insane driving! Unfortunately our trip around Goa has been obstructed by the horrid Delhi belly. Second day in I was struck down with the dreaded sickness, I blame the prawns, but it could have been anything, as … More “As white as pure sugar”
First up apologies for being very absent from my blog this past year. Life took over my writing sadly, but, it’s the best year I’ve had back in the UK; a great job, living back home with my favourites, and making some big new plans. How did it get to 2017 so quick? A hard and … More I’m back and I’m off again
I first started running around four years ago. To face the facts I needed to get fit in someway or another and shed the uni pounds! I had always only ever ran 5 miles or less; country roads, beautiful tracks, and occasionally on a treadmill, although I hate treadmill running. I feel as if you’re … More A long way just for a banana!
How have we fallen in to March already? How was I in Australia just over two months ago? Going from bare feet on sandy beaches to freezing toes was quite a shock at first. It feels as if I have been back a lifetime. With so much that has gone on since touching down in the UK I … More Bare toes to wooly socks
Day nine we pushed on to our last leg of our road trip and finally spotted Mount Cook, the highest mountain in New Zealand, on a clear day. It was gorgeous to see sat at the far end of the bluest lake I have ever seen, Lake Pukaki. Famously known for its distinctive turquoise colour, … More A road to Paradise – Part Three
Staying overnight in Lake Wanaka on day five we only had an hour drive ahead of us to Queenstown. We spent the day relaxing around Wanaka, checking out the famous Stuart Landsborough’s Puzzling World; a fun couple of hours to kill time whilst the weather was rubbish. We headed to Queenstown, passing the famous bra … More A road to Paradise – Part Two
My last leg of my journey in Australasia took me on an adventure in yet another Jucy camper van around the beautiful, scenic South Island of New Zealand. After spending over six months loitering around Sydney not really moving and putting a halt to travel to earn some cash, you almost forget that freedom feeling … More A road to Paradise – Part One
My tenth month of living in Australia has crept up extremely quickly. When you’re so immersed into something time just slips away. How is it that I have only a few weeks left here? Travelling has become such a big part of who I am. In the back of my mind I am always concocting … More I miss Marmite on toast.
