Cayton Bay, what I thought was a tiny cover nestled in between Scarborough and Filey, turned out to be a gorgeous wide expanse of sand that was more gorgeous that I could ever have imagined. I’d heard about this place from several people, mainly those crazy cold water surfers that popped into the old O’Neill shop I used to work… View Post

Yorkshire’s coast is as varied as it comes. From the industrial coastline of East Yorkshire to the scenic sights of places like Saltwick Bay, you’ll be able to find a part of this county’s coastline that suits you down to the ground. For me, I love Whitby. I love the quirkiness of the place and the views you get of… View Post

Sydney. It’s my favourite city on earth. There’s no doubt about that. The lively, cosmopolitan feel of the centre, the gorgeous variety of beaches hugging the coastline and the surrounding countryside all combines into one delicious place that, in my eyes, is hard to beat. You see, I lived in this beautiful city for a year. One magical year of… View Post

That Sunday morning, the sun streaming through the window, waking me up in the process, was a welcome break from the torrential rain that had been pouring most of the week in Hong Kong. I was feeling slightly worse for wear thanks to a late night out in Wan Chai, but the gorgeous weather was begging to be made the… 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

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

If there’s one thing I didn’t expect to be doing in Ibiza, it was parasailing. I thought I’d be soaking up the sun, watching the sunset every night, experiencing some of Ibiza’s best clubs. You know, all the typical Ibiza stuff. Not parasailing though. Isn’t that something you do anywhere BUT Ibiza? It turns out it isn’t. And it also turns… View Post

When I visited last October, you may recall me saying that I didn’t fall in love with the island like I thought I would. I had this idea that I would feel at home in Ibiza, a place known for its laid back atmosphere and hippy vibe as much as it’s known for its party reputation. But I didn’t. I… View Post

When Exsus asked me to pick out my favourite romantic island escapes, thoughts of relaxing on a deserted beach with my other half came to mind. We’d walk around barefoot in the sun and wake up together to the sound of the sea washing against the sand. Delicious meals under the stars would be enjoyed the evening and while the… View Post
