I’ve been travelling a lot longer than 13 years. Technically I’ve been documenting my travels for almost all of my life, but the biggest changes have been within the last 10 to 13 years or… More
Almost 1 year ago to the day, my hair started falling out. Now some of you that have been around for a while, will know that I’ve not coped well with being an expat and then my body decided it wanted to make sure that I knew that too. In this post I’ll be talking about why my hair fell out, how it affected me mentally, the ways I tried to cope with my hair loss, how long my hair was falling out for and how I tried to help assist with its regrowth.
When planning my trips to the Wisconsin Dells, visiting indoor water parks were a ‘must do’ on our list. Travelling as just adults with no kids, it was important for us to find a water park with enough thrill slides to keep us entertained. We didn’t want to have little kid slides, we wanted big ones that get the adrenaline going! On our first trip, we went to The Wilderness and on our most recent one, the Kalahari! Here’s what I thought of the 2 parks!
American Football is the most popular sport in the USA…and I don’t understand it. Not in the sense of how can people like watching football, but more of trying to follow the game play. I get completely lost! I was recently invited to Ames, Iowa to watch the Iowa State Cyclones play the Texas Longhorns. It was my first college football game and even with help from the people around me, I still walked away a little clueless! So here are some lighthearted observations from a British person trying to understand American Football for the first time!
Once again I have partnered with the ethical jewellery company, Life Less Ordinary! Back in the summer I reviewed their Fernweh coordinates bracelets and now I’m back with another one of their products, the What3Words location bracelet!

While travelling between London and Bosnia, I used Cologne in Germany as a stopover. As I only had around a day in the city, I stuck close to the Rhein, there’s actually loads of things to do in this area of Cologne. I love river walks, as are easy to navigate and good for people watching! Here’s how to spend one day in Cologne!
Ames Iowa is located around 30 miles north of Des Moines and is home to Iowa State University, one of the 3 universities that can be found in Iowa! It’s very much a ‘college town’ with a huge amount of pride and sense of community. Ames was recently named the best college town in America by 24/7 Wall St!
When I first looked into getting a drone, I was overwhelmed with the amount of accessories that you could buy for it, just like the GoPros packs with all the different mounts! My DJI Spark has been a bit of an ongoing investment, where I’ve been adding to my accessories as and when I find the need for something. I share with you my 5 must have DJI Spark Accessories that I think really make a difference!
