A Wander Around Cramond

This past weekend I decided to head down to Cramond to test out my beautiful new camera, but importantly I wanted to get used to my walking boots once again, before training commences for the EY Foundation trek in Spain!

Apology for the silence!

I am ever so sorry for being so quiet the past month or two!  Though I have been quiet in my posts,  I have been developing a few ideas over these winter months!

On that note,  I promise I am now officially back to my blogging self! In all honesty this was my moment where I hit the wall, and the hecticness of life got in the way of my blogging.  But it felt empty without a release for my creative passion and not spending as much time outdoors,  which is always where my heart and soul wants to be!

I manage to catch the odd photo of a beautiful sunrise in amongst the busy city life!

Gear Review: Coleman Instant Dome 3 Tent

I was lucky enough to win this 3-man Coleman Instant Dome 3 tent in a photography competition ran through Camping magazine, so for myself it was in fact free (woop!), however, the original RRP is approximately £99.99.

Easy, fairly compact carry bag

A Family Camping Trip to Mull & Iona

This past weekend myself and a fellow 12 members of my family - yes, BIG family holiday! - headed to the Isle of Mull for a family camping weekend, with the main reason for the trip being to spread the ashes of my beloved Gran and Papa on the Isle of Iona. Though it may not sound like the most cheery trip in the world, it was actually a beautiful weekend with my wonderful family in some of the most stunning areas of Scotland.

6 Adventurous Things To Do This Weekend!

Ever find yourself sitting at the weekend stuck for ideas of what to do? Daytime TV won't cut it, you've done all your household chores (or have maximised your willingness to do them!) and you're feeling a bit of cabin fever? Have a look at some ideas below, for all weekends or free days, no matter the weather or budget:

1) White Water Rafting

I've been White Water Rafting a couple of times now, and have never felt disappointed. Enough of a thrill to keep my adrenaline going, and enough of a work-out to give me a good nights sleep at the end of the day! The team at Splash! are fantastic, can highly recommend them, and their instructors are both professional and a great laugh at the same time.

5 Reasons Travelling Is Worth Saving For

This is partially a post to inspire you readers, and partially a post to inspire myself! With no holiday or trip booked this year, I find myself longing for my next overseas adventure. Yet, where will the money for this magically appear from?! I'm definitely not the best at saving, to say the least! So I need a little reminder of just why it's all worth putting this extra pennies aside for, and I'm sure I'm not the oy one, between fellow savings-strugglers and all aspiring travellers.

An Eco-Cottage Getaway Near Oban

Last weekend, I headed up to the small town of Ardfern, situated about 20 minutes outside of Oban for a family trip away with Ryan's family, courtesy of Ryan's mum! It was a well-needed restful few days of relaxing in a hot tub, enjoying nature and exploring Oban.

Chillin' with the fire pit, ready for a Jacuzzi dip!
