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
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
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!! It’s a Real Thing!!
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
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!
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
It’s odd where the ideas come from, often it’s just a simple conversation that sparks me off with an idea. This conversation was about the sunsets and how after the solstice the nights would start drawing in. A sobering thought when you realise we are half way through the year and you haven’t done much… Continue reading Summer Solstice Sprint
Well this one was a long time coming. I knew I needed to get back to my weekends away having stalled over the winter months (apart from Singapore at Xmas) Question was, where to go, I had no great callings. Instagram is always good for inspiration. I found a photo of a waterfall that took… Continue reading Just Me, On My Own, in Yorkshire
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
I had to be up early! Not my strong point, especially as my sleep pattern could currently be described as paisley, if Picasso had had a hand in it! You get the picture?! But I had to force myself as today was the day of the Bike Tour around the city. It started at 9… Continue reading Singapore – Boxing/Bike Day
