A unexpectedly lovely day of chasing hang glider pilots around Austria followed by night-time wanderings and really good beer.

My First Published Article!

A big baby-step yet very adulty thing has happened! Earlier this year I interviewed Miranda Roberts, the President of the Portsmouth University's Kickboxing and MMA Society. We talked about the sport itself but mainly focused on how it has improved her personal safety and other elements of her life.

Aya Bad Swimming Pool: SalzburgΒ 

This pool was conveniently located just along from our accommodation, Pension am Eschenbach. Coming from the UK I'm not used to pools being really clean and elegantly designed.

The Best Dinner Spot in Newquay

The Eden Project and Newquay

There is nothing like driving around in Australia to make you realise just how teeny the UK is. But there are some corners of our little country that still feel like the ends of the earth.

Cornwall’s Little ItalyΒ
