Candyland Studios | A Woodland Retreat

I get a real buzz about staying somewhere special. Fancy Hotels might offer luxury that the majority of us aren’t used too, but what I really love is something unique and different. That’s what makes a stay special to me. Let me set the scene. Deep in heart of Devon, […]

Paradise Wildlife Park 

My close friends will already know how much I love animals (mainly the furry ones, not the reptiles so much), so this weekend Adam and I visited the Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire. I stumbled across the park a few months ago, and have wanted to visit ever since. […]

2017, Another Great Year Of Travel

With Christmas been and gone, and 2017 all wrapped up – this means one thing for me. It’s time to reinstate my favourite New Year’s resolution. Once stolen from a friend, this New Year’s resolution is to try and visit at least three new countries per year.  And in 2017 […]

Go Banana’s At Trentham Monkey Forest

Most of you already know how much I love animals – big, small, furry – so it should come as no surprise that we made a slight detour on our way back from Wales, to visit to the Monkey Forest! It was only a slight detour, and would break up our […]

Discovering Dogs In London

Calling all dog lovers!! This is a post you should most definitely read! A few weeks ago, Adam booked me tickets for a surprise day out. After some probing, the only information I got out of him was that it involved animals and I might get to pet them. This […]

The Lost Jungle Adventure Golf

Every time I visit my folks, I pass by the A41 where it merges with the M1 (this is road talk for anyone who is not familiar with North West London btw). I’ve noticed over a long period of time that someone has been redeveloping a large plot of land. […]

Reaching The Summit Of Mount Snowdon

Wales has been on my bucket list for a while, so this bank holiday weekend we packed up the car and went on a road trip to Snowdonia National Park. With a huge choice of outdoorsy things to do, it’s difficult to know where to begin. From mountain biking to […]

A Banquet At Toad Hall

As a child of the 80’s, I fondly remember Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in The Willows novel which follows the adventures of the mischievous Mr Toad and his pals Ratty, Badger and Mole. I can easily recall my mother reading me the story before bed, and I can even picture the […]

Havana Rum Masterclass

If you know me well enough then you’d know how much I love my rum. I’ll always go for a rum punch over any other cocktail, and after visiting Cuba a few years ago, my love for rum was firmly cemented. Adam and I have a small collection of 15 […]

A Little Piece Of Devon

As someone who travels often, I rarely choose a UK based get-away and I’ll be the first to admit that I am guilty of not knowing my own country half as well as I should! Sure I’ve visited most of the big cities (Manchester, Edinburgh, Liverpool), and several smaller towns […]
