  I love holidays! I holiday so, so well. I could be a professional holiday taker. Luckily, a week ago, I had just over 2 weeks of glorious holiday. As I said, I’m good at holidaying and did a great job. We had an amazing fortnight and got up to loads and loads of great stuff. As you may have already read, we went to Snowdonia, did a lot of walking, had an amazing time and summited lots of mountains.…

    Hi it’s Vicky again. Snowdonia was such an epic place to be: the scenery was spectacular and the climbs were all so unique and amazing – it’s always such a great sense of achievement when you reach the summit. Whilst planning our trip to Snowdonia, we came across an article in a climbing magazine all about climbing not one, not two, but four peaks in Snowdonia in a day. It seemed pretty difficult, but we were well up…

  During the Easter holidays, my girlfriend and I decided to take a trip up to Snowdonia in the North of Wales. Since getting into climbing we had seen countless photographs, articles in magazines and posters around the climbing centre which had inspired us. I had seen photographs and read up about the area, so was dying to go to this beautiful location. After some researching in books and the internet, I found this awesome looking hostel called Plas Curig,…

    You may have read about my trip to Salamanca last year, well this is a second post all about one particular visit to Salamanca’s famous Cathedral. There are in fact two cathedrals in Salamanca, the ‘Old Cathedral’ and the predictably named ‘New Cathedral’ (or in Spanish ‘Catedral Nueva’). What is pretty cool and convenient is that both of the cathedrals are connected, so when you visit them, you do so together.   Back in 12th and 13th century,…

  This is a bit of a catch up piece about a trip I made with work, way back 2015. I had an awesome time and took some great photos I’ve been meaning to share with you all. Enjoy.   One day back in October, while I was at work, I got an email from a collegue asking if I was free in a couple weeks. I was really confused, so I phoned them up to find out why they…

  Last weekend, I was lucky enough to watch probably one of the most anticipated matches of the entire 2015 Rugby World Cup. A battle between two epic rivals: England vs Wales. It was over a year ago when we put in for tickets in the Rugby World Cup ballot and were fortunate enough to get tickets for this Pool Match as well as a quarter final. This has made it a very exciting year with the match just getting…

  We awoke for our final day in London with a spring in our steps and bounced down to breakfast. When the waitress asked us for any extras we both opted for the waffles, which were amazing! We had the return journey booked for about 4 o’clock but that hadn’t stopped us planning the day packed to the rafters with cool activities. Once we had feasted again on Park Plaza’s awesome breakfast we returned to the room and commenced repacking…

  After an amazing day filled with art galleries and West End musicals it only seemed right to top it all off with a luxurious meal. It was with this in mind that I had made a reservation at Moti Mahal Restaurant in Covent Garden, which was just a short walk from the theatre. The food at Moti Mahal isn’t your run-of-the-mill Indian takeaway or restaurant, it’s a gastronomic Indian restaurant that’s much more highly refined and sophisticated. Covent Garden…

  After a well deserved and delightfully peaceful sleep we got up and made our way to breakfast. The breakfast which was included with our room was amazing. We were shown to our seats and offered tea, coffee and anything that wasn’t included on the buffet, including waffles and pancakes! The buffet style breakfast contained pretty much everything you’d imagine and more. I did the usual thing you do when at a hotel breakfast like this and had about three…

  After we had settled into our room we set out on an epic London day out. First stop on our tour was Camden Market for shopping and most importantly – lunch! I absolutely love Camden, it’s so cool and has great shops and food stalls. I really like picking up cool odds and ends there to kit out my van. This time I got my hands on some cool ethnic style fabrics to deck out the back of my…
