Rock Climbing at Avertical World

This bank holiday weekend, my planned camping trip with two old friends that I'd been preparing for and was excited about was cancelled and I was DEVASTATED to say the least. Lucky me though, another friend got in contact and told me she was heading rock climbing at an Avertical World in Dundee, with instruction from her friend, and invited me along. I figured, sure! Never tried it before, always wanted to! Saved the bank holiday weekend from being ruined!

A to Z of Camping

A - Camping is a wonderful form of adventure. Head somewhere you've never been before. Or even see a different side of your local area. Camping opens up opportunities to experience areas in a way you just can't do in a car, or a house, or during the day.

B - There's nothing quite like barbecue food when you're camping (disposable or a more environmentally-friendly re-usable one for regular campers)

C - Though not essential, I would always recommend taking a camping chair or stool. Quite frankly, it's just nice to have something to sit on once you've expelled a load of energy collecting firewood and setting up the tent! Expensive ones tend to be comfier, but we use cheap ones and they all work the same!

Scotland in Photos: Edinburgh

First of a new post series, Scotland in Photos. Over time I hope to gather photos to show the different aspect of Scotland's beauty, history and culture, from it's cities to its hills to its coastline, all via photographs I have taken over time :)

The capital of Scotland, Edinburgh, is a beautiful city, filled with gothic architecture, unique street acts and plenty to do. With a vast history still seen along it's streets and lanes, as well as more modern features there's something for everyone.

Obviously, there is Edinburgh Castle, right in the centre of town....

Top 10 Things To Do in Perth, WA

This weeks post is an overall account of one of the most life-altering, relaxing, adventurous and exciting holidays/trips I have ever had. Having never visited Australia before, this was a big adventure for me! I thought I'd do an overview post of things we did, what I recommend etc. Some particular activities were that fantastic they have their own posts, which I have linked to :) also, there is SO much more to do in Perth than I've even mentioned, but we didn't manage to get around it all!

1) Kings Park

For a easy and touristy start to your visit, start off at Kings Park like we did. Spectacular panoramic views over the city, plenty of grassy areas for picnics and eccentric bridges to explore, and plenty of wildlife . As one of the top tourist destinations in the area, you're guaranteed an enjoyable day out.
