The good ol’ days…

I was pottering around the house today finishing off removing the wallpaper in a desperate attempt to look like I had done something productive and I found myself thinking of my childhood days back in Plymouth, Southwest England.  The house was always fresh with windows wide open and a constant soundtrack of ace of base,...

Paddleboarding Loch Lomond

We are fortunate enough to live 15 minutes from Loch Lomond and she really is a wonder to behold.  This was at a good time of year to head out to Lomond to explore and get the paddleboards in the water.  We set off from Luss beach on this occasion, however we normally go to... Continue Reading →

Glen Loin Loop, Arrochar

We decided that even though the fog was so thick that you could barely see more than 50 metres ahead, it would be a perfect day for a walk. We packed some lunch, jumped in the car and travelled along Loch Long to reach Arrochar. (We live towards the opposite end of Loch Long)  By... Continue Reading →

We set off at about 0700 after being... Continue Reading →

Exploring Ao Nang

The locals in this small fishing village area are extremely friendly and helpful and the street food is unbelievable. We managed to bag ourselves a delicious Mango smoothie which was very cheap and good for morale as we still hadn't received our luggage at the hotel. We started off by walking down to the corner...

So long Glasgow…

So today Sam and I grabbed our bags and made our way to Glasgow airport to embark on the first leg of a three part journey to Krabi in Southern Thailand.  I'd like to say the journey went smoothly but that would be lying 😛  After a few drinks and some food we boarded our... Continue Reading →
