Backyard Adventures 2, Bath

I don’t know if any of you will be able to empathise with me, but you know when a place is so close you don’t feel the need to explore it immediately? Well, with most of the places I am listing in Backyard Adventures, this is definitely the case. I keep postponing it, promising myself I will find the time to truly explore but I never do. This blog series has given me the perfect opportunity and motivation to go outside and explore where I live. For the first in the series, I wrote about my high school town Cheddar and next up is Bath, my university town.

Backyard Adventures 1, Cheddar.

I am a country girl, always have been and probably always will be. I live in the heart of Somerset amidst with the cows, sheep and tractors. So I am going to take you on a tour to the sights around my home, for the next couple of weeks I thought I’d write a series of beautiful places in England that you (yes, you) have to visit.

Guest Post: Skiing in Italy

With so much uni work at the moment, I thought it would be nice for Charlie (my boyfriend) to write a post on his recent trip to Italy, so that I can crack on with some uni work. Blogging is hard and takes a lot of time and effort and right now uni is my priority. Plus I thought it’d be pretty cool if he told you guys about his trip. Don’t be too harsh on him, he’s new to the blogging world so leave him some love. 🙂 – S x

The Next Adventure

I didn’t want to say anything just in case it didn’t happen. But it has and you’ll never believe it… WE’RE GOING TO INDIA! If I’m being honest, even I can’t really believe it. Flights have been booked and dates are basically set in stone! From the 12th July to the 8th of September, once again, I will be living out of my suitcase.

All photos have been taken off

Of course I am ecstatic and beyond excited. India has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Not just because of the Taj Mahal, the elephants and all the beautiful culture but also because India is somewhat of a mystery to me. I have heard so much about it but I can’t imagine it, so I’m excited to experience it for myself.

The Highlights of Thailand

I don’t even know where to begin. With a 3 hour boat, 3 hours waiting, 9 hours on a bus, 24 hours in Bangkok, a 4 hour flight followed by a 9 hour flight, it’s safe to say the journey home wasn’t for the faint hearted and I had a lot of time to reflect about my adventure in Thailand. The past 6 weeks has been one hell of a rollercoaster. Overwhelming, hectic, crazy, mind boggling, the list goes on and on. From being at peace with the elephants in Chiang Mai to being drowned in Bali to weaving manically through the roads of Bangkok in a tuk tuk. I learnt a lot about myself this trip and whilst for some of it I wanted nothing more than my own bed and an English breakfast, I wouldn’t change one thing about my experience. For any of you going to Thailand or planning to go to Thailand, here are my best bits. Trust me, all of these are a must!

Ko Samui

Yesterday evening we arrived in the beautiful Ko Samui. I was pretty dubious as to whether I would actually like it here as I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews. But it has exceeded expectations by a long way.

We had a quiet evening last night, only going out to buy food and then coming back to our hostel to take advantage of it’s amazing wifi. BLISS!!! But today has been oh so hectic. For a mere £7 we were being shown nearly all the sights of Ko Samui… We started off with the Ko Samui view point. There was so much blue it was breathtaking! We were so lucky with the weather… I would almost go as far to say that the weather today is one of the best day’s we’ve had this whole trip…
