Yesterday afternoon I went for a bike ride to get away from the computer and three hours later I was still cycling round Portsmouth. Just y’know, exploring, looking at stuff. ..
Thanks to the fact we’re a little island there’s lots of coast line to see. I’d never actually been to this part of Milton Locks before, despite it being right next to my house. ..
If you’re at a loose end this weekend, just go out and explore your locale. On bike, on foot, scooter - whatever. Just go. 🙏🏻 You don’t need to get on a plane to explore. 👀

I think, I just had my perfect weekend 🙏🏻 - if only I could swap out Ben falling off his bike (vicious lamp post jumped out at him) and the terrible film we watched last night (Wind River). .. Apart from that it was Greek souvlaki and pub crawl in Portswood, Southampton, Friday. Saturday was lie in and then 20 miles cycling 🚴‍♀️ in the New Forest with fish and chips for energy and a tasty Buddha bowl dinner. Then today, GBK burgers with friends and watching the Wimbledon final on the big screen outside with ciders. .. I know I’m a travel blogger and all, but this weather has made me appreciate the adventures in my own back yard so much more. England is great, I just need to remember to take pics of it though, cos this here is me in Canada at Lake Louise. Honestly one of the most spectacular lakes I’ve ever, ever seen. Totally unrelated but I was equally as happy. .. See, still got that travel bug but I love home just as much 🏠. .. #reallifeandstyle #lakelouise #canadalakelouise #30plusblogs #chattycaptioncommunity #homeandaway #travelathome #newforest #trekamerica @trekamerica #canadawaterfalls #canadagram @albertaadventuregirls #livelovecanada #canadaswonderland #canada150 #canadalife  #igerscanada #lifeincanada #pocket_canada #enjoycanada #imagesofcanada #explorecanada #loves_canada #totescanadian #tourcanada #icu_canada #canadalife #explorealberta #snapshot_canada #ukbloggers
Today - Friday 13th July 2018 - was the day I ran a mile without stopping. For the first time, ever. .
🤸🏻‍♀️
.
I’ve tried before but huffing and puffing I’d give up. Easier to do that isn’t it? Today, with the help of @denissulta’s tunes, I just decided to do it. To not stop until the mile was done. And that was that, like the gym wall says, mind over matter. .
🏆
.
Totally gonna apply this to my life next week and smash some goals that’ve been hanging around for a while, or at least make a start. .
But first, THE WEEKEND. .

Canoeing the Emerald Lake, like all the best instagrammers 😂. —

Really was beaut though, especially with that sprinkling of snow on the mountain tops. — 
I’ve spent the last few days going through my Canada pics and vids, and even made a little YouTube guide to my Trek America trip (link in bio). Canada is INCREDIBLE: go. 🇨🇦 —

Practising my Reverse Warrior 💪🏼 // @fatbuddhayoga #antigua #antiguaybarbuda #yoga #reversewarrior // 📷 @eimearkellyyoga
Totally tropical. It's been an awesome 24 hours in Antigua. Two beachside yoga classes done with @fatbuddhayoga, one yellowfin tuna dinner, one spinach omelette breakfast, one beef and jalapeño tortilla lunch, one kayak race (lost it), two dips in the sea (one with inflatable watermelon ring) and one INCREDIBLE massage. The masseuse lady got *right* in there with my knotty back. Definitely going to like it here. // #antigua @galleybayresort #loveantiguabarbuda #antiguaybarbuda #antiguan #palmtrees #ilovepalmtrees🌴 #ilovepalmtrees #blueskiesfordays #Caribbean #fbyxeir
ANTIGUA! 💪🏼 I'm on my way to the Caribbean for a week of yoga, sun and relaxation. Needed after this hour long queue to drop my bag off 😭. I'm Joining the @fatbuddhayoga week at the super lush @galleybayresort. Lucky enough to have been to Antigua before, when I went up to Shirley Heights for this amazing view out to what was then, Antigua Sailing Week. Very excited to get back to the Caribbean! #fbyxeir #antigua #caribbean #loveantigua #lovecarribean @eliteisland #shirleyheights #loveantiguabarbuda #antiguaandbarbuda #visitantiguabarbuda #blueskies
On Wednesday I got to go and have cocktail and dinner on board the Zuiderdam, which was docked in Southampton. The ship was beautiful, it felt modern but still had that cruisey gilt. We explored, we drank and we ate  bouillabaisse and fresh perch with some interesting characters from the cruise world. Had a great evening. One of the highlights was seeing Southampton from a different view, on the upper deck. It's not my favourite place in the world but from there it looked kinda lush, with an interesting skyline and I loved imagining what people thought when they docked in to that big looming IKEA. Fun night, and a good transition from the highs of Canada to the norms of sitting at my desk. // #zuiderdam @halcruises #hollandamericaline #cruise #cruiselife #iliketocruise #cruising #southampton @four.travel_uk #halcruises
Aaaand that's a wrap on a crazy month of travel. Barcelona > Crete > Canada - three of my most favourite trips I've ever taken. I'm gonna spend the next ten days going through my pics and videos and reliving it all from the comfort of my home. If you're a subscriber, or follow my blog, expect a post a day until my next trip on July 1st. ✈️
Just a little sponsored travel tip for you: when you travel so much, it makes sense to sort your finances before you go. If you check out my YouTube you'll see my latest vid is all about the benefits of the Tandem credit card. I give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and it's now my main card for travelling. No international fees on spending abroad, and cash back 👍. And an easy to use, touch to check in, app for your phone to keep track. // #canada🇨🇦 #alberta #trekamerica @trekamerica #canada #travellife #tandem #tandemmoney #ad #ilovecanada // 📷@fordtography
