An overnight trip to Cambridge (and your chance to win £500)

By | August 2nd, 2016|England|

Cambridge was calling, just an hour or so by train from central London, but even the excitement of new adventures couldn't hide the fact that it was 6.55am when my alarm went off. Blur, yuk, the same time as I have to get up Monday-Friday. Well, you know what they say, no pain no gain, [...]

Colour Obstacle Rush – Windsor, UK

By | May 10th, 2016|England|

The Colour Obstacle Rush - a 5k fun run with inflatable obstacles and coloured powder thrown against white t-shirts creating a rainbow of each runner. What's not to like? Sign Me Up ... oh and I'm bringing 3 friends with me. Since when did you run? Now I think this might be my first ever [...]

Taking a staycation in the Cotswolds

By | September 8th, 2015|England|

Just how far to do you need to travel in order to travel? By that I mean, do you need to leave you own town? County?  Country?  Continent? For the past years I must admit I've been very much caught in the idea set that I need to at the very least get on a [...]

The View From The Shard

By | January 11th, 2013|England, What to do in London|

The View From The Shard ... its not too bad. In fact is just a little bit special. Earlier this week I was lucky (understatement) enough to be invited to a sneak press preview of London's soon to be top attraction - The View From The Shard, an invitation I obviously accepted. Ahead of the [...]

Enchanted Woodland at Syon Park (@Londonsyonpark)

By | November 28th, 2012|England, What to do in London|

Enchanted Woodland at Syon Park is a 1.1 mile long nature walk which takes place of a Autumn/Winter evening against a backdrop of beautifully lit parkland and architecture.  I'd wanted to take Esther last year, but for one reason or another we never made it.  This year I was determined not to miss out and luckily [...]

Transport options from London airports to central London

By | October 5th, 2012|England, What to do in London|

Why write about Transport options from London airports to central London? It's London, surely you just get a cab don't you?  Straight from the terminal to your cosy hotel, hostel or apartment. Oh I wish it was that simple!  Whilst London has an abundance of airports for the most part the 'London' label is a [...]

London 2012 Paralympics through Instagram

By | August 31st, 2012|England, Real Time Blogging, What to do in London|

The London 2012 Paralympics kicked off this past Wednesday (Aug 29th), and despite missing out of tickets to the Olympics, I was lucky enough to snare a couple of day passes to the Paralympics for Monday 3rd September. Our Paralympic tickets are quite cool in that not only do we get entry to the park, [...]

Visiting Wembley for the London 2012 Olympic football

By | August 7th, 2012|England, What to do in London|

On the 9th August 2012 the Japanese womens football team and the USA womens soccer team (you and I know both know it's really called football and not soccer, but 'm gonna let it go on this occasion) will come head to head at Wembley Stadium for the mother (no pun intended) for all games.  At [...]

Harry Potter Studio Tour

By | July 11th, 2012|England, What to do in London|

So last week I went on the Harry Potter Studio Tour.  Awesome!  It's well documented that i'm a bit of a nerd.  Is it right for a 28 year old man to like Harry Potter? ... maybe not, but I do so well erm ... huffletuff. So I should probably give fair warning here.  **Spoiler [...]

The Houses of Parliament from the London Eye

By | July 4th, 2012|England, Photo of the week|

Last night whilst strolling through London, the mrs surprised me with a couple of tickets for the London Eye. She's a catch that one! Sods law, middle of July and its lashing with rain, but even when wet the London skyline still looks spectacular. This is probably the best pic I took.   Here you [...]
