3 day mini cruise in Amsterdam – brothels, beer, bicycles and beyond

I recently returned from a 3day mini cruise in the buzzing city of Amsterdam. As an Amsterdam virgin, I had no idea what to expect – especially with its wild reputation. Brothels, beer, bicycles and beyond… Amsterdam is like a lighter, airier, waterier, smaller, friendlier version of New York. I am yet to visit New York – but I look forward to comparing the similarity in the near future. Amsterdam is full of canals and people riding bikes which mean much less traffic, less polution, less noise. As soon as you step into Amsterdam, you’re hit with the iconic views of […]

Seaton beach in the winter….

I like the sea and the beach at winter. In summer the beach is too over crowded don’t you think? Empty beaches during a cloudy and windy day have something magical, Don’t you think? I like to walk along an empty beach, listening to the waves, the seagulls and organise my thoughts. This weekend called for a road-trip to Seaton Beach near Hartlepool. We wrapped up warm with our scarfs, gloves and coats. I still manged to get a cold and currently dosed up on medicine covered in vapour rub Vic as I write this… We had some fish and chips, No […]

Time to join the gym & fat club!

I have tried many diets and failed. You name it, I will have have tried it. Juice diets, skipping meals, cabbage soups and shakes. None of these were ever suitable for me. I always lacked motivation to carry on with them.  I’d always end up gaining as it made me miserable aswell as eat everything in sight. I never really taught myself or educated myself around food and always went for a quick fix – Thats not the way it works. If it was easy to lose a stone over night everyone would be doing it. Quick fixes don’t last… […]
