    Finally, we woke up at 6:30am to get to the car park early. We arrived around 8:30am and it was already starting to get really busy, I took one of the the last empty spots.  Looking up at this massive mountain - one I'd wanted to climb ...

    Oct 25, 2019

     So I'd tried to accomplish this one several times in the past with a specially bought pack of cards, however never succeeded. Until one random evening whilst at work I was called to the train station for a job. Whilst waiting for my cre...

     We had flown into Krakow, got sorted at our accommodation (a beautiful apartment overlooking the main square) and went out for a walk. It was a lovely summers day and we found a large queue of horses and carriages. It was quite expensiv...

    On my way back from Plymouth with my brother we decided stopping here would be great! I’ve been here before many many years ago and couldn’t really remember it. I definitely couldn’t remember how steep it was to get down.  Parking here ...
  • Apr 19, 2018

      I have done this many many times, however the most recent time stands out to me.  It was an incredibly hot day - one of the first warm days of our British summer - so I decided to go down to the beach. Southsea is my most favourite p...

    Jun 11, 2017

    One of the worst experiences of my life, and one which I never set out to achieve on the day I did. I woke at 4:30am for my shift at work. Endured a tough but ok day before driving home. I was very tired however decided to stay awake so...
  • Apr 15, 2017

     We were pretty excited to be doing this! Before entering I tried to even get a compass direction to help us get through it but it turns out we didn't really need it. We just walked around, taking random turns before we somehow made it ...

    I think it's safe to say I'm achieving this. I have done 2 full years, starting on January 1st 2014, and still going strong today.  The first year, I did fall off the bandwagon for quite a while (3 or so months I think...) but I ended u...
