Snowboarding in Valmorel [VIDEO]

By | March 3rd, 2015|France, Snowboarding, Video|

Ah snowboarding, my new favourite thing.  Not a lot to say about this post really, I went snowboarding in Valmorel, France, loved it and made a video of the trip. I have written a post about how much the 5 days snowboarding (3 full days + 2 halves) in Valmorel cost, so give that a [...]

The cost of 5 days snowboarding in Valmorel

By | February 19th, 2015|Budget Travel, France, Snowboarding|

Snowboarding in Valmorel was never likely to fall under budget travel, but I'd promised myself that I would, just this once, splurge and experience a more established snow resort in the alps.  I now bring to you the breakdown of said splurge. Snowboarding in Valmorel Whereas in previous years I had snowboarded in Bulgaria, Bosnia and [...]

What’s in my bag for this years snowboarding trips

By | January 28th, 2015|Snowboarding, Travel|

Despite my blog post at the start of the month claiming that if you want to travel on a budget you need to travel hand luggage only, there are obviously some trips where that is just not possible.  A ski/snowboarding trip is one such example, unless that is, you plan to hire absolutely EVERYTHING in [...]

Sarajevo: Budget snowboarding in Bosnia

By | February 5th, 2014|Bosnia, Budget Travel, Snowboarding|

Snowboarding in Bosnia, that didn't quite go according to plan. Due to a lack of snow and my timing, 4 days snowboarding in the mountains surrounding Sarajevo ultimately turned into just the one day.  Ah well, despite being a bit of a control freak, my powers do not extend as far as to be able [...]

Snowboarding in Scotland – Glencoe ski resort

By | April 5th, 2013|Scotland, Snowboarding|

Snowboarding in Scotland is possible in a number of places. On a recent holiday to Scotland (an epic roadtrip I might add), I was lucky enough to get an afternoons boarding in at one of Scotland's six main snow resorts. Granted it was quite what I was used to in terms of ski resorts (not that I have extensive [...]

Bansko: Budget Snowboarding in Bulgaria

By | January 30th, 2013|Bulgaria, Snowboarding, Video|

Budget snowboarding in Bansko is easily done.  You just need to book everything early and separately.  Its far from being the biggest ski resort in Europe, but if you're looking for a cheap skiing or snowboarding trip within Europe, you could do a lot worse than Bansko in southwest Bulgaria.

Snowboarding in Bansko - I've been once before and loved it, so i'm going back. It makes sense doesn't it!? In fact as you read this I am either on my way to, or already in Bansko, a ski resort located in the southwest of Bulgaria. I'm here in this snow capped wonderland to see [...]

By | July 21st, 2019|Travel|

The saying goes that 'if it ain't broke don't try to fix it' ... but what if you can make some seriously cool improvements? Back in 2017, at the end of May, I wrote a review on the Sungod Classics² sunglasses.  Now just two years later, having also produced several other designs such as the [...]

You Are Our Greatest Adventure

By | August 26th, 2017|Travel|

Just as I think we're all settled into our new flat and me into my new job, it's all change as a new adventure looms, a somewhat big adventure! One unlike any other I've undertaken before. Dun dun dun! As overly dramatic as that opening as that opening paragraph reads, said adventure is all in [...]
