Take 12 trips

12 months, 12 trips.  Easy you’d think for somebody that likes to travel?  Not so.  There are months when we are either busy or away travelling with work and just want to hold the sofa down or enjoy a weekend in the garden and not go out and have an adventure.  Despite this, we did just about manage to ‘take 12 trips’ (excluding work travel which would be cheating the amount we’ve done this year…) and even in the months…

Flashback Friday Travel 39 – Jamaica

April in Jamaica was a splendid idea, I remember our trip very fondly indeed.  I must confess, I was nervous about going to Jamaica – it has a little more ‘edge’ to it than other bits of the Caribbean and Mr P had been there before when gang violence hit Kingston which is more excitement than I need.  But I am so glad we took a chance – we had a magnificent time.  I would go back in a heartbeat –…

Is it really September already?

A friend shared an amusing article about how most people are surprised it is September already – I can’t agree more and already it is whistling past at pace.  It has been a busy year, even just recapping the Take 12 Trips bits… The #Take12Trips initiative introduced to me by On the Luce has really made sure that even when we’re busy, we’ve made the time for a trip in the month – be it a local day trip or…

April travels with Penelope and Parker

April is only 30 days long granted, but I didn’t realise a month could pass so blooming quickly – where did it go?… Well – I suspect if I did some quick maths it would know that I spent more time either in the air, an airport lounge or a hotel than I had at home!  Hectic is an understatement!  Here’s a taster! April with Penelope and Parker with @spg @heligangardens @aroundtheworldin80pairsofshoes @british_airways @hermes #flipagram made with @flipagram. See full video…

Fantastic foodie night in Winchester – The Black Rat and The Black Bottle

So – last year for Mr P’s birthday we were lording it in 5* luxury in the middle of a desert. This year I had it all to do to try and match that treat – I needed to find a perfect birthday dinner as we didn’t have holiday planned this year to coincide!  Thankfully Winchester has just what was needed and is en route home from London to where we live and was a real treat for us both! I have…

Penelope and Parker in January

Where did January go?  It’s the 7th February when I am writing this and we are already rattling towards March!  Time does go quicker as we get older!!  This is the first  month in a year when I haven’t taken a photo every day of the month – oh what a release it is not to still be doing ‘Project 365‘!  I would recommend it to anyone to do, once! However this year I’m going to only take photos when…

2015’s challenge – #take12trips

2014’s challenge was to take a photo a day for 365 days!  It was a real challenge, good to look back on now, but at times really frustrating!  An accountants life is not always the most exciting.  Thankfully I only took pictures of my cups of tea on a few occasions! So for this years challenge I have found something that feels like it will be far more rewarding and enjoyable for me, and for Mr P who also stands to…
