If I had to pick one place where I am at my happiest, I’d have to go with it is when I’m at the beach. Although I love the hustle and bustle of a city and would absolutely love to live in London again, there’s something about walking along the beach that makes me feel so calm and happy. As I’ve just come back from a holiday in Mallorca where I finally got to spend some time in my happy place (after YEARS of no beach getaways) I thought I’d share some of the reasons I love being beside the…

When I told my family I wanted an adventure/action camera they laughed at me and to be honest, I don’t blame them. Despite travelling all the time I still have a lot of fears I need to face.

I’m slowly facing my fears one by one, but I wouldn’t say my day to day life is full of adventure yet. With that in mind, the main reason I treated myself to a new camera is to encourage myself to face my…
