High Ropes Climbing & Zip Lining at Go Ape Thetford Forest – England, UK

I have been to Go Ape several times now and it’s always something I enjoy doing! It’s a great adventurous and adrenaline filled way to spend time outdoors. The Thetford Forest location is around 1hr 30 from where I am in Essex, so it’s a nice easy UK day trip for me! There are 34 different locations all around the UK (and 14 locations in the USA…including 6 across the Midwest!). Here’s what to expect when visiting the Go Ape Thetford Forest location!

My First Month Teaching English Online With Cambly Kids!

I admit it, I’m one of those annoying people that came out of lockdown with a new ‘skill/qualification’.

I’ve now been working online with Cambly Kids for a month and I’m loving it!

I Think I’m Too Old For TikTok. But Then I’m Not Sure It’s Suitable For Kids Either…

Like many other people, I fell into the TikTok rabbit hole during lockdown. I had resisted it for so long. It started by scrolling endlessly through videos for hours and then I decided to start making content myself. When you run a business online, you kinda have to be up on the trending platforms.

2020 The Year of The Staycation: What My UK Mini Break Was Like

I had a week in Tennessee, USA planned, along with a week in Portugal and 2 weeks in Zanzibar (Tanzania). As you can imagine, they all got knocked on the head. One was completely cancelled, one got rebooked and the third is in vouchers. So to give me some sort of a break, I booked a last minute 2 night glamping trip, literally 20 minutes from my house!

Repatriating Back To The UK: 1 Month Update!

It’s been just over a month since I returned to the UK! So I thought I’d give a bit of an update as to what has been going on and what it’s like to be back. Spoiler alert, I think I made the right decision and I’m sleeping at night again! Yay! I booked my flight before everything that’s been happening this year kicked off. I spent nearly 3 months worrying if the flight would even depart. What a time to choose to repatriate! In all honesty, if it wasn’t already booked before everything kicked off, this year would have been the final straw anyway.
