20/05/22 – New York City!

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!

01/05/22 – Rambling day

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”

30/04/22 – Wild swim time!

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!”

26/03/22 – Bye bye Lisbon

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”

24/03/22 – Lisbon views!

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!”

23/03/22 – Actually on our hols!

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!”

21/03/22 – Sunny evening in Lisbon

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”
