The pinnacles are within a small national park, I wouldn't describe the… Continue reading Exploring Putangirua Pinnacles: LOTR film location

Wild Swimming: Pont d’Arc & Cascade du Sautadet

As we left Barcelona we headed towards Southern France, searching for some natural beauty.

Charlotte 0 / Paddle Board 1

I'm pathetic. I'm scared of paddle boarding. I've  been wanting to go paddle boarding for so long now, I've always thought it looked tranquil, relaxing and stress-free and for most people I'm sure it is. We decided to rent one board, €20 for 4 hours, with my boyfriend steering and myself sat on the front. Maybe… Continue reading Charlotte 0 / Paddle Board 1

As we drove through the Spanish boarder we headed straight to San Sebastian, being the first destination on the map we recognised. However, our time there was short.
