I don’t think I’ve ever felt as small in this big old world as I did during our short time in Flåm. Flåm is a wee village in Norway surrounded by the biggest mountains I’ve ever seen. Everywhere I turned, I was faced with sheer mountainsides, and I couldn’t be happier! Transporting yourself to Flåm
Twas the day after Christmas. This one was a Monday, and it proved to be a fairly regular day, as far as travel days go. Our bags were packed and tucked beneath us on our flight from London to Bergen. There was nothing particularly special about the flight. I don’t recall if I watched a
These monthly recaps give me the chance to keep you updated on what I’ve been up to, where I’ve been, and what’s to come on the blog. It also gives me a chance to share more about myself, my interests, and current obsessions. September has flown by in an absolute blur. I feel like the

Scotland has been on my list of must-see places since I was a kid. I’ve always felt proud of my Scottish heritage, and have been keen to see where my ancestors came from. Scotland has a rich history, and so many amazing locations to visit. There was no way we could fit everything in, but
I have craved a visit to Ireland for as long as I can remember. The Emerald Isle. Doesn’t it just sound like a magical and wondrous place? Picture rolling hills, lush fields, and sheer cliffs edging around the two countries that make up Ireland as we know it. We wanted to see as much as
One of the things we were most excited about doing in Western Australia was taking a trip to Rottnest Island to meet the Quokka. A Quokka is a little critter that calls the islands off Western Australia home. They look like a cross between a wallaby and a smaller animal like a rat or rabbit.
