When Expedia invited me and Beverley to go and check out Wakefield’s Rhubarb Festival, I couldn’t say no. I grew up near Wakefield. It’s somewhere I hung around a lot as a kid and the Rhubarb Festival is always an event in the diary that everyone talks about, you know, with Wakefield being part of The Rhubarb Triangle and all.… 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

I know it’s not even Halloween yet but the most festive time of year is fast approaching and it’s time to start getting prepared. But, I’m not talking about presents, or… 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
