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!

I have never been a huge viewer or follower of any particular sport; yes I’ll appreciate watching a big game from time to time or getting involved in the atmospheric crowds at stadiums, but Formula One is one sport I … More Singapore with a side of F1
Another year has flown by landing my birthday in another country which isn’t home. Very different to last years celebration where I had my last day working with penguins and partying in Cape Town. This year I spent my day out with the little’n at the zoo, not really feeling like my birthday at all, … More Birthday abroad No. 2

A seven hour drive to the rural town of Wagga Wagga (pronounced Wogga), staying in a lovely little cottage for five days whilst Kristin attends lectures and an exam for her University course. Recognising that New South Wales is … More Wagga Wagga
