For my last #take12trips challenge, I knew I wanted to finish with a grand finale, which is why I chose to go snowboarding in La Plagne, France. Now this was the first time I had ever been snowboarding (or done any winter sports ever) and I was a little apprehensive about throwing myself in the […]
After waking up with sore biceps and bruised kneecaps from caving in Burrington Combe the day before, we decided the only remedy was Sunday morning stroll up Glastonbury Tor.
Not just cider and The Wurzels, the West Country is home to our friends and a good selection of caves just waiting to be explored. And what better way to spend my next #take12trips challenge than catching up with friends whilst crawling through tunnels and caverns?

Of course with the #take12trips challenge under our belts (as if we needed any further excuses to go travelling […]
I am sure everyone reaches a travel rut at some stage. Whether it is visiting the same country every year, taking the same beach holiday or even booking at the same time each year, we’ve all been there.
