Staithes by the sea

The first thing that struck me about this town was that it was completely empty, we hardly saw another person. With these cute quirky little cobble street fishing villages that is very strange. I only saw Staithes with the tide out, I would have loved to have seen it with the tide it, I can…

Helmsley, Knaresborough and bits in-between

When you stay anywhere you inevitably take lots of photographs of some places in-between, places you pass through, places you whizz around and never really have enough time in, places you have been to before and places you plan to one day see again.

The first but hopefully not the last trip to Norway.

a holiday I want to do over and over and over again

We went to Hawaii recently. That beautiful spot in the middle of the ocean that everyone wants to go to and for good reason its f-ing awesome! While living in Japan we knew we had to get across to Hawaii because the chances of us living as close as this again (still a 7-9 hour…
