Now that Autumn is well and truly here, we are getting some pretty spectacular sunsets...which I love!  Nature is providing us with a treat and I am loving capturing some of these… Continue reading Because I Love…

Loafing around Lewes!

I spent a lovely weekend in Lewes during the summer visiting friends. I always love going down there, it’s brilliant to hang out with my friends first and foremost, but Lewes is also a gorgeous little historic town.

Cooling Off at Kuang Si Falls, Laos

The falls are about 45 minutes outside of LP (by tuk-tuk, other modes of transportation are available!) and are definitely worth the trip!  We were told to get there early to avoid the crowds, but that didn’t actually happen, despite our best intentions. So, with our plans foiled on that front (see post Delicate Negotiations… Continue reading Cooling Off at Kuang Si Falls, Laos

Finding My Happy Place

I don't think it's any secret that I love the beach and the sun!  I grew up in the Middle East, on a small island where the sea was usually visible whilst going about your normal routine and the sun shone... a lot! In fact, going to the beach was a part of our normal… Continue reading Finding My Happy Place
