My Instaweek Round-up – July Wk 4

This past week was spent in East London doing all the things you do when moving to a new city. We had what felt like a billion house viewings, visits to potential schools, and a few hours of down-time at the beach. It was an exhausting week and to say that I am exhausted today… Continue reading My Instaweek Round-up – July Wk 4

3 Countries In 3 Days: Day 3

Day 3 dawned at Afriski Mountain Resort. We were all tired, but eager to get up and actually see the resort since we'd arrived at night and couldn't make out much.

3 Countries in 3 Days: Day 1

My husband and I went away last week with our friends, on what can only be described as a fast paced epic adventure. My husband and his friend are avid 'bikers'. Think more 'respectful adventurers' rather than 'leathers and goatees'! They both ride BMW GS1200 Adventure bikes. They have all the safety kit and have… Continue reading 3 Countries in 3 Days: Day 1
