Swinging from the Trees at Go Ape!

Last weekend Jamie and I headed up to Aberfoyle for a day swinging from the trees at Go Ape. The only way that I can describe Go Ape is that it is a tree-top adventure obstacle course that really gets every part of your body working and really pushes the boundaries of what you thought your limitations were. We had always wanted to go here but with life getting in the way it was just something another thing that we had forgotten to do this summer.

Photo Diary: A Summers Night in Glasgow Green

Glasgow Green

Glasgow Green

This is quite a photo-heavy just because I wanted to showcase how pretty Glasgow Green is. On hot nights, Glasgow is reminiscent of the likes of Manhattan with people peppered throughout the local parks, taking in what could possible be the last sun of the year – you never know when the heat will end in Glasgow so we all have to make the most of it!

5 Quirky Reasons Why I Love London

London Eye

I know a few people who don’t like visiting London for a number of reasons, mainly because of how over-crowded it can be and how fast-paced life is. However, I believe that they just haven’t found the right side of the city yet; it has so much to offer, and I can guarantee it has something for everyone.

Segwaying around Blair Atholl

Blair Atholl Segway

As part of a hen weekend away in Blair Atholl and Pitlochry, I finally got to do something I had always dreamed but never knew was accessible to general public folk like me. That thing was Segwaying. I don’t mean these little boards that spoiled rich kids on YouTube are scooting around on, no I mean the big chunky two-wheeled vehicles with handles for stability. And yes the ones that DON’T catch fire after a few uses *ahem*.

A Quick Guide to Cycling the Isle of Cumbrae

Cumbrae Cycling Millport Ferry

Last year I set myself a few summer goals, a few things I wanted to see and activities I wanted to do; and one of them was cycling around Cumbrae. The Island of Cumbrae might be better known for its only town – Millport. On a very windy but sunny May day, we did just that. I wanted to create this guide for anyone either thinking about going and hesitant of what to expect, or those who never even knew what a great day out Cumbrae could be.

The Best Way to See Hyde Park

London Bike Hyde Park

London is one of the places that I hold dearly to my heart, along with New York. I always say I’m a city gal, and whatever city I am in is my favourite – but truthfully I can’t actually choose! So one way a city can sway my opinion is not only an easy transport system (check) but also plenty of green space for walking and relaxing.

Shaun in the City Challenge!

London

When we went down to London for a random weekend away last May, we noticed loads of Shaun the Sheep statues peppered across the city. We weren’t sure what it was for but after coming home and reading all about it, it was part of a charity art trail across London, organised by Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation. Us being us, we thought it was fun to take a picture with every one we came across, even if it did mean waiting 10 minutes for all the six year olds to stop playing on it.
