Tips, Tricks & Hacks: Sock Roll (I Want To Try!)

Have any of you tried this before? If you have, let me know and share your experience!

I’m all about space saving as well as being prepared and over the years I would say my ability to pack lightly yet be prepared for different situations has improved greatly. I have been on short-haul trips with just hand-luggage (10kg limit, although I have never gone above 5kg) and long-haul trips (22kg limit). The short-haul trips have lasted from as little as 6 days to 42 days, whilst my long trips have been around 90/95 days. Different lengths, different needs.

Travels Galore!

What a busy time to come and already had travel wise!

I have just come back from a great walking weekend in the Lake District and in less than 10 days I’ll be flying out to Belguim via Amsterdam in the Netherlands, a trip to Scotland in May and maybe even another trip to London in June!!

Busy, busy… so you may find a lag or two in the posts!

Happy travels!

Long Time, No Post!

2016 is here and now, so am I!

Its been a while and I have had very little time to do anything blog-related, with a new job which comes with new, more and exciting opportunities and responsibilities, it has been hard to manage the work-life balance but I think I’m finally getting there – *Fingers Crossed*

Today, I have been updating a couple of my side blogs which don’t need to be updated so often and I now I will start on this one. You might not see anything for a while as I work on uploading lots of images from my trip to Budapest, Hungary over the New Year as well as related information on my experience. There are also other posts that I will be working on as well and once I am on my way, be sure to see some posts arriving 2-3 times a week. Then the question? Where next? Not only my own travels, but post wise too.

Stay tuned!

An Liebster Award!


Thanks to Lady CAS for nominating me for this award that I did not know existed – My first ever one! Such a great blogger! 😀


  1. Make a post thanking and linking the person who nominated you and include the Liebster Award sticker in the post.
  2. Nominate 5-10 other bloggers and notify them of this in one of their posts.
  3. All nominated bloggers are to have less than 200 followers
  4. Answer the 10 questions posed by your nominator and create 10 different questions for your nominees to answer. Or, you can repeat the same questions.
  5. Copy these rules into your post.

My answers to those questions…

1. If you could be any Superhero or Supervillian would you be?

To play devils advocate, I could be a superhero or a supervillian in anyones story! It is just perspective of the storyteller, the ‘villain’ can easily think they are the good guy and doing whatever they are doing for good reasons. Look at war, no side is truly innocent, good or evil and hindsight is a wonderful thing.

2. Where are you from?

The great county of Yorkshire, England

3. Where is you dream destination?

Iceland and it has been for so long. Northern Lights, Glaciers, Lava Caving, Whale Watching, Blue Lagoon, awesome opportunities for hiking and night life. It is so expensive to go and be there, which is why I am waiting and saving until an opportunity arises.

4. 100,000 dollars to eat a can full of worms, would you?

Actual worms from the ground in a what size can? Not jelly worms? Do I need to digest them, or is unintentionally vomiting them back up count as trying? Okay, my gag reflex is strong even with things I deal with a lot… Lets say maybe!

5. What is you favorite holiday?

Does New Years count? Love it!

6. Who is you ultimate celebrity crush?

Over the years there have been many, some have dwindled, some have stayed and others have joined the ranks, however fleeting and I recognise aesthetics of either gender but the ultimate, in my current mood…  a toss up between Max Irons and Jensen Ackles, and for the other side of the coin, Lily Collins.

7. If you could choose one sense to lose which would it be (sight, touch, smell, hearing, or taste)?

Smell. Straight to the point with this answer as I have actually had to write many essays on this point.

8. If you could have one superpower what would it be and why?

I’m a huge Charmed fan, so if I had to I would pick Piper’s freezing power. I’m not a time poor person, quite the opposite but just for those moments where I am clumsy, or counting to 10 in real-time just wouldn’t be enough and if it ever happened, to save a life or to prevent injury.

9. Are you married, single or dating?

Single 😀

10. If you could be anyone who would you like to be? 

Hopefully, myself. Not the facade we all build but myself without fear of judgement…
