7 Coastal Walks In Orkney You Need To Take

2017 is the year I've dedicated to exploring home. We are lucky in Orkney to have so much history, loads of islands, and possibly my favourite part: lots of coastal walks. I was starting to realise that the sheer number of walks on our little Scottish island that involve stunning cliffs and rugged coastal scenery… Continue reading 7 Coastal Walks In Orkney You Need To Take

Taking All Of The Trains & Trams On The Isle Of Man

We decided to spend our final day on the Isle Of Man being the ultimate tourists: we were taking the electric railway north! And then the electric tram up Snaefell mountain! And then, back in Douglas, taking the horse-drawn tram along the promenade! And then... taking the steam train south! And in the middle of… Continue reading Taking All Of The Trains & Trams On The Isle Of Man

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: August Update

Seems like only yesterday that I wrote last month's update! But here we are; autumn is already starting to set in, and today I even had to succumb to the new air source heaters we've had installed. Ughhhh. Can you feel that? That's the feeling of needing a holiday in the sun. I have had… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: August Update

A Day Road Tripping The Isle Of Man

If there was one fantastic decision we made on this trip, it was to take the car. I mean that for all aspects of the trip, but one part we were most looking forward to was exploring Ash's "home town" of the Isle Of Man. I had visited the IoM once before, a few years… Continue reading A Day Road Tripping The Isle Of Man

A Castle & A Cathedral: Exploring Scotland As We Pass Through

The first part of our Scotland & Isle Of Man trip had begun: we had just spent a night in Nairn, a small town near Inverness, and we now had a full day ahead to get down to Heysham in northern England to catch an absurdly-timed ferry at 2am to the Isle Of Man. We started the day having no… Continue reading A Castle & A Cathedral: Exploring Scotland As We Pass Through

Things I Miss About Australia

Last week marked a year since we left Australia. *splutters tea everywhere* Sorry, WHAT?! Considering it feels like last week that we arrived in Australia, to think it's been a year since we left the country 14 months later... my brain is struggling to comprehend whether it's actually working. Needless to say, there's a lot that… Continue reading Things I Miss About Australia

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: July Update

Aaaaand it's already August. I feel like this is a running theme for my monthly updates, but it's true! Considering how little I've actually achieved in the past month, I can't believe how quickly it's gone. And so, without further ado... my successes and failures bared to all. Make £50 £100 on side hustles As… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: July Update

My Ultimate Guide To Couchsurfing: For Hosts & Surfers

"I don't know whether to admire you or just think you're insane." A colleague recently said this to me when I explained to him the concept of couchsurfing - as a lot of you may know, we've spent the last few months of "downtime" hosting people through it. By which I mean, travellers have been coming… Continue reading My Ultimate Guide To Couchsurfing: For Hosts & Surfers

My Summer Travel Playlist

If you know anything about me, it should be this: outside of travel, my main love is music. Honestly, I'm possibly even happier in a crowd singing along to a great song at a gig than I am when I'm getting on a plane. (Okay, it's close.) I'm a rock chick at heart - although… Continue reading My Summer Travel Playlist

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: June Update

Are we really half way through the year already?! That is just ridiculous. June has been as crazy as ever, but I've really enjoyed it despite working even more (seriously, I think I had three days off), hosting couchsurfers for over two thirds of the month, and basically not having single day of "me time"!… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: June Update
