Taking Time Out Isn’t Always A Bad Thing

It's a beautiful day outside, and here I am sat in my living room with no intention of going out. Say whaaaaaat? I'm sure most people would think, "yeah, so what?" rather than "say what" but if you know anything about me, it's that I'm not very good at doing nothing. But of course I'm… Continue reading Taking Time Out Isn’t Always A Bad Thing

50 Photos To Make You Want To Visit Orkney

Oh, Orkney. While visitors to these remote islands in Scotland are rapidly increasing year on year, in the online travel circles and particularly the blogging world, my home island of Orkney remains seriously overlooked. And yet I don't understand why. Is it because we don't have Instagrammable mountains? Is it because our beaches aren't quite… Continue reading 50 Photos To Make You Want To Visit Orkney

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: December Update

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! It's been a tough time for a few of my friends, so my thoughts have been with those who struggled over the season, and those who are no longer here to enjoy it. I was thoroughly spoilt this year - Ash bought me a new laptop!! It's a… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: December Update

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: November Update

When I flew out to Portugal, I planned to relax, which meant having time to write, read and stay caught up. Haaahahaha, how wrong was I?! When I travel, I make the most of it, and that means keeping my laptop in its case for the majority of it. As well as utilising almost every… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: November Update

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: October Update

Hello from PORTUGAL! How's your November going? Mine's been pretty full-on, hence posting this nine days late. I've already been to five cities across three countries, celebrated bonfire night, and somehow found time to be bed-ridden ill for a couple of days, too. And if you think that's mad, you should have seen my October.… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: October Update

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: September Update

Good morning and happy weekend, everyone! Well, that's it. I'm officially unemployed (sort of). And it had nothing to do with my tweet last week about working with a hangover, although that was pretty horrendous. But it's the end of the season, which means the hostel is closing for the winter and I'm out of… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: September Update

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 beautiful islands, spectacular wildlife, and possibly my favourite part: lots of coastal walks. I was beginning to realise that the sheer number of walks on our little Scottish island that involve stunning cliffs and… Continue reading 7 Coastal Walks In Orkney You Need To Take

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

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: May Update

Woah, what the hell happened to you, May? After a manic April, you were supposed to be calm, collected and chilled out. I planned to slow down a bit - I wasn't getting many shifts at my second job, so I was able to utilise days off to explore and catch up. Fast forward to a… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: May Update

Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: April Update

Sooooooo. Erm. April has been a busy month. Where the hell did that go?! I've just finished a frankly exhausting 10-day stint of work, and half way through, realised that I've only actually had four days off this month. Five if you include one day where I only worked for a couple of hours. Needless… Continue reading Clazz’s 2017 Challenges: April Update
