On the 26th August, 2012, I returned back to the UK from what had been, and probably still is, the best year of my life so far. My 12 month stint away from Yorkshire had seen me spend just over a month in Hong Kong, 2.5 weeks in New Zealand and a year in Australia, with most of that time… View Post

I’m sure most of you will have heard this phrase at least once in your life. You may have come across it on social media or in an inspirational blog post full of quotes that are meant to make you want to GET OUT THERE AND LIVE LIFE. Personally, I first heard this quote back in 2012 when I worked… View Post

Welcome to a brand new week guys! Can anyone smell the bank holiday just around the corner? I know I can. Yes, I know it’s only Monday, but I’m already looking forward to the 3 day weekend ahead of us. Personally, I think we need more 3 day weekends in our lives. Like once every month or something. Until that… View Post

The first ever time I went stand up paddleboarding, in The Outer Banks, North Carolina, I knew immediately this was a sport that I needed in my life. Much like snowboarding, it’s an activity that just completely relaxes me and zones me out. Something I desperately need more of, but Yorkshire isn’t really a hot spot for aspiring SUPers like… View Post

Sometimes you visit a place that captures your heart in a way that words just can’t describe. This time around, Ibiza was one of those places. There are a million and one things that I could say about this small Spanish island in the middle of the Mediterranean, but from the beaches to the pool parties, the parasailing to the… View Post

Happy Monday guys! What a week last week was. I felt like it lasted a lot longer than the usual 7 days, in a good way though. There’s a lot of positives to come out of last week. I enjoyed a delicious meal at Iberica in Leeds, I started creating a little plan and reorganising the shit out of my… View Post

West Yorkshire is a place where I’ve lived for 25 out of my 27 years on this planet. The other 2 years I divided between York, North Yorkshire, where I spent my first year at university, and Sydney where I based myself while in Australia. Now Yorkshire is a place I hold very, very dear to my heart. I grew… View Post

Camping is something I’ve always enjoyed ever since I was a kid. I remember going on camping holidays to France and exploring Northumberland from a gorgeous camp site by the coast. During high school, I even carried on camping through doing my Duke of Edinburgh Award where a tent was a welcome retreat after a fun and hard day of… View Post

Think of one of the happiest moments of your life. Maybe graduating from university? Getting married? Skydiving? Or maybe even completing a personal challenge? Whatever it was, hold that feeling in your head. That feeling of complete joy and happiness when you just had the world’s biggest grin on your face. You got it? That’s how I felt when I… View Post

Again, I haven’t written one of these for a few weeks and I do miss writing them. The honest thing is though, some weeks I don’t write anything else and I don’t want this blog to be just little weekly updates about the random crap I get up to. So some weeks, I might write a Life Lately. Some weeks… View Post
