Travel in 2014: Brazil Bucket List

Brazil is huge and we're only really going to see a tiny bit of it, but there's still so much to // See a World Cup game. Or at least watch one in a crowded pub with lots of other people. // Visit Christ the Redeemer. When you think Rio most people will think of 'that big statue thing that's on top of a hill' (ashamedly I have only recently learnt it's name...) // Buy ...

A Valentine’s Weekend In Paris

I have to admit we cheated a little bit. My Valentine's Day was last weekend and we celebrated in style by getting the Eurostar to Paris. I like to think that having Valentines last weekend meant we avoided being a complete cliché... (you may disagree). Really it was because the Eurostar had a sale on and travelling to Paris isn't cheap on actual Valentine's Day y'know! These are a few random shots from the weekend. ...

A guide to hiking the Salktantay Trek

If you think of Machu Picchu the Inca trail is what comes to mind. It's the trail that everyone does and everyone's heard of. If I say 'Salkantay trek' you'll probably wonder where it is and where it goes (and so did I until I started looking up ways to get to Machu Picchu!). But, if you're looking to hike your way to Machu Picchu, then the Salkantay Trek is a brilliant trail to choose. ...

Travel in 2014: Bolivia Bucket List

From here After Peru we're headed southwards to Bolivia. The country with the highest capital city in the world, and the largest salt flats in the world (pictured above). There's tonnes to explore in Bolivia but here's some of the things I really want to check off! // La Paz is definitely somewhere we'll be headed. It stands at 4,100m above sea level and sounds like a buzzing place. There's a Witches' market which sounds ...

Travel In 2014: Peru Bucket List

If you read this post last week you'll know I'm off on a pretty exciting adventure in May. Our first stop is Peru, here's my list of things I'm going to try and do. // The Inca trail and the Sacred Valley. On many people's bucket list. If I don't do this then it'll have to be one of the other trails that leads to Machu Picchu; such as the Salkantay Route. They seem a ...

Travel in 2014

Over the Christmas period we did something exciting. We booked tickets to South America. For 3 whole months. Our route is going to go a little something like this (although it's not set in stone). It's always been my plan to travel after university, although I never thought I'd be doing it with a boy! We're both incredibly excited, especially as there's some big sport event going on in Brazil while we're there...  If any ...

Demolition Derby In Kings Lynn

Last weekend we decided to check out Stock Car racing and a Demolition Derby. Verdict? Someone didn't tell us the spectators uniform was a high-vis jacket (everyone seemed to be wearing the), and I definitely should have put a couple of extra pairs of socks on as it was freezing! But the event itself was great!& The cars sped round the track slipping and sliding into each other and the walls, stand too close and ...

Hunstanton Christmas Day Swim

This year Christmas Morning was chilly. I lost any sanity I possessed and decided to join around 150 other crazy people in running into the sea. Yes, the British sea, at a warm 5 degrees. It's part of an annual event in Hunstanton and it seemed very popular; apparently there were a few thousand people watching us crazy folk too! All swimmers raise money for charity and don some fancy dress. The winners were a ...
