Getting Away From It All

It had been a challenging start to the New Year to say the least. A motorbike accident, potential job forced change (now confirmed) and my sister diagnosed with stage 4 cancer – all within the first few weeks of January. This meant no adventures, my time and energy had to be directed elsewhere. In short… Continue reading Getting Away From It All

Corryvreckan – Whirlpools

It was the evening of the Stone Skimming Championships. I knew I wanted to do the trip to see the Corryvreckan whirlpool, I’d been told about it before I left and had looked at booking but I’d dithered 🙄 So now I was desperate to book but I only had the day I was leaving… Continue reading Corryvreckan – Whirlpools

Yes!! It’s a Real Thing!!

So, my adventure map had an adventure that soon became top of my list. It wasn’t a quick trip, it would require planning and time off work - oh well!😃 It was in Scotland, on an island called Easdale and it was The World Stone Skimming Championships. 😁 Needless to say I had difficulty in… Continue reading Yes!!

Eccentricities and Traditions

My good friend (Sue❤️) at work had found a map and thought of me. It was no ordinary map. It was an Adventure map. The best kind. I bought it and was immediately immersed in all the wonderful things and places that were on offer. All the things that are going on at weekends and… Continue reading Eccentricities and Traditions

Off Again!

Well, I’m off again! Another trip, another adventure! I’m certainly at my happiest when I’m driving to a new destination. The destination this time, ultimately, is Scotland. To be precise, Seil Island - to watch the World Stone Skimming Championships😃 Obscure I know, but I love things like that. I have already been to the… Continue reading Off Again!

Summer Solstice Sprint – Sunset

Setting off after breakfast my ultimate destination was Morecombe on the west coast. But first I had a couple of stops to make, the first being Whitby, I had been told it was well worth a visit. I set my google maps and started off but as usual something caught my eye along the way.… Continue reading Summer Solstice Sprint – Sunset

Singapore – Shooting the Breeze

It was my last full day, I had one more sleep before I would have to pack up and leave. I knew I already didn’t want to. I had nothing planned. I got ready and decided along the way that I really should go and see the Marina Bay Sands hotel up close. So far… Continue reading Singapore – Shooting the Breeze

Singapore – Christmas Day

Well, I knew it was going to be a different day, it’s what I wanted. Last year it was Fuertaventura with my boys, 4 years ago it was New York as a family. I don’t know if I’ve said this before but I do envy the people who have the big happy family Christmas, I… Continue reading Singapore – Christmas Day

Singapore – Bus Day

Before I left the UK I had booked a couple of things, one of them being a hop on hop off bus ride, through an app called Get Your Guide (which I highly recommend). I’ve done them before, Hong Kong, New York and a Duck Tour in Washington, which goes on the road and then… Continue reading Singapore – Bus Day

Singapore – A Biggie

It was always a hope that when Richard (my ex husband) went to work in Singapore that I would hopefully be able to go out there one day, well, I’m a great believer in drawing things to you, if you believe something will happen hard enough you stand a good chance of it actually happening.… Continue reading Singapore – A Biggie
