Grief

21 Apr 2020

I thought I knew what grief felt like. When I was 9 I lost my Grandad (Dad’s dad), 2 weeks after that I lost my Nan (mum’s step-mum). I was very close to my Grandad, in my mind he was perfect and I think about him all the time. I always wonder how different my life would be if he was still around.

Exploring Croatia from Split

11 Oct 2018

One of the reasons I decided to stay in Split for 7 weeks was because I knew it gave me easy access to many beautiful places around Croatia. Both islands and mainland! From Split you can get to Hvar, Broč or Vis islands very easily. As well as getting to beautiful little towns like Primošten, Trigor or Sibenik AND places like Krka waterfalls and Plitvice lakes.

Remote tooling

12 Aug 2018

I’ve been remote working for 2 years now, and it took me a while to realise what software makes that process easier and what ones don’t. Without certain software working remote would be impossible. In this post I’ll run you through what I use.

All this meant that this lil blog had to take a back seat :( but I’m back with a post about something that is very close to my heart. FOOD!!!

Hurricane Irma

29 Sep 2017

This post isn’t going to be like my normal ones, this one is more of a diary entry so I don’t forget what happened in Miami. I also needed to write it down so that once everything had died down I could reflect on what happened properly.

Work–life balance

One of the hardest parts of travelling is finding the perfect work and life balance. When you’re moving country every 1/2 months it can be extremely difficult. You want to explore the new and exciting place you’re in, but also you need to work.

Life in the mountains

10 Mar 2017

I have been in the mountain for 3 months now and I can safely say I love it. Having always lived in cities I did wonder how I would find being in a fairly small place where you walk down the one main street and always see the same faces. But with views like this, what is there not to love.

Beautiful Istanbul!

05 Dec 2016

When I initially set out to write this post I wanted to write about all the reasons why you should visit Istanbul ASAP. However after some thought I realised that that was not the direction I wanted this post to go in. Instead, I have decided to write about all the incredible things about one of the most beautiful cities I have ever visited as you may only be seeing negative stories in the news.

Berlin so far

10 Sep 2016

I have been in Berlin for 7 weeks, it has gone ridiculously quick and I have loved almost every moment. I remember someone saying before I left the UK that I would learn more about UK culture once I’d gone. I didn’t quiet fully understand what they meant at the time, but now I do.
