We’re in New York! We’ve had a really great (and very very long) first day. We flew here this morning, then spent the whole day wandering round, taking in the sights and sounds before finally getting back into bed 22 hours after getting out of bed this morning. It’s time for a well earned sleep!
After over two years we’re finally going to New York! We’ve done the first leg of the journey, getting to Heathrow. Despite living in the same city, it took us 2.5 hours to get here! But we’ve made it, now it’s time to relax!
We went on a gorgeous three hour hike around Woodstock and Blenheim Palace today followed by a gorgeous pub lunch and finally heading home. Only two hours drive tonight, much quicker than Fridays 3.5 in rush hour. I’ve had just the nicest time camping this weekend with some wonderful friends, but I must say I’mContinue reading “01/05/22 – Rambling day”
I’ve had a really lovely first day of camping! We went to a gin tour and tasting, then for an excellent pub lunch and on to wild swimming which was bloody freeeeeeeezing, but still super fun. Last night was three degrees and we woke up with frost on the tent so we’re happy today isContinue reading “30/04/22 – Wild swim time!”
Today is mine and Nic’s eight year anniversary! We spent the day exploring Worthing as a potential house move destination but decided we don’t think it’s for us. We still had a really nice day out none the less! I enjoyed walking along the sea front.
And just like that a week later we’re back home! This photo was from this morning as we were waiting for our taxi to take us to the airport. The weather certainly wasn’t what we expected but we have still had a lovely week in Portugal none the less. It also made me very excitedContinue reading “26/03/22 – Bye bye Lisbon”
The sun came out for a bit today and it was actually warm! Then it started absolutely pouring down again, but it was wonderful whilst it lasted. We walked about 7 miles today around the city finding some great views including this one, and discovering the beautiful botanical gardens nearby. A really lovely last dayContinue reading “24/03/22 – Lisbon views!”
That’s it, we now both have four days off work! We kicked it off with a gorgeous pasta dinner and some drinks. It even stopped raining as we walked back from dinner! Fingers crossed this is a good sign for the next two days of weather as I’m not sure if I can handle anyContinue reading “23/03/22 – Actually on our hols!”
Much soggier evening tonight, but we still managed to have a lovely time. Pints after work then dinner in a traditional Portuguese restaurant, outside but with a heater, sheltered from the rain. One more day until we’re “actually” on holiday!
Today was my first ever day working abroad! In all honesty it was slightly harder than I thought it would be as I was just dying to go outside and play in the sunshine. But it was also really great to be able to finish up on time and be drinking sangria in the sunshineContinue reading “21/03/22 – Sunny evening in Lisbon”
