HTMW Recaps: December 2017

HTMW Recaps: December 2017

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really. December is all about Christmas, right? The food, the lights, the time spent with loved ones, the giving and receiving of presents, time at home, time to relax, all the alcohol… So it seems fitting…

HTMW Recaps – July 2017

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really! This month I was prepared for a busy month but it turned out to be a bit quieter than I anticipated! One of the highlights of my month was seeing Green Day live, so this…

HTMW Recaps – May 2017

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really! This month was far quieter and more relaxed than April, and I’ve felt a lot less stressed out. I’ve taken time for myself, in extreme contrast to last month, so the quote this month reflects…

London Cheap Eats

London Cheap Eats

‘There is no sincerer love than the love of food.’ – George Bernard Shaw. One of my all-time favourite things to do is to eat. I can literally be eating one meal and be planning the next at the same time. Food is high on my list of priorities at all times. And where better to enjoy food than in London, a culturally diverse city with food from all over the world on offer everywhere you go. But… Eating out…

HTMW Recaps – March 2017

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really! This month, my truly favourite days were spent in Wadi Rum. As such, the quote from the legendary T.E. Lawrence this month sums up how I felt about this special part of Jordan. ‘No man…

How to ‘Travel’ when You’re Not Travelling

How to ‘Travel’ when You’re Not Travelling

‘Travellers repose and dream among my leaves.’ – William Blake. There are those of us that travel constantly, never settling in one place for very long, always on the move and heading for pastures new. These people are usually the sort that have blogs and websites that make them cash on the road – self-employed entrepreneurs who’ve given up the nine to five desk job and now roam the world as full-time nomads. And then there are those of us who have been well…

Home Comforts That I Miss When Travelling

Home Comforts That I Miss When Travelling

‘Sometimes, I’ll let little things get to me. Or I’ll make a big deal out of little things.’ – Jennette McCurdy. My left side was aching. My knee was sore from being locked in the same position for too long. My hip screamed at me to turn over, to quit lying so still. I wanted to face the other way. Slowly, oh so carefully, I moved onto my back. So far so good. I shuffled my body over and the ancient metal bed springs…
