A bit late on my August review but since being in Paris on the bank holiday weekend, I had little to no time to write this at the end of August.
Note to self.. Be more organised and write monthly reviews as you go and do no wait until the month is over to start..
I have lived in Dorset my entire life, yet it has taken me all these years to see Durdle Door, i’m not sure how and i’m not sure why but one Saturday, myself, my sister, boyfriend and our Australian friend (Hi Timika) set off on an adventure.
Visiting Tyneham Village, an WWII evacuated village which has been left completely abandoned since 1943 was spooky yet fascinating, then we drove to Durdle Door as it’s a few miles down the road. It was such a beautiful day, so chilling on a pebble beach and exploring the surroundings was a day well spent in Dorset.
The rest of the month was spent relaxing and organising for 5 days in Paris. I had always dream of returning to Paris after a school trip many years ago and I found cheap flights, a cheap Airbnb and booked it all without hesitation. Best. Decision. Ever.
Paris is so incredibly beautiful, we stayed in a little studio apartment and had the Eiffel Tower as soon as we looked out our window – what more could you ask for?
After five days I had convinced myself that I was ready for Parisian life, and already started planning our next trip back before our final day had ended.
I love the art, the culture, the food, the atmosphere and I’ve realised that no six words have ever been truer than when Audrey Hepburn said ‘Paris is always a good idea.’
(Posts and photographs will be coming soon, I got snap happy and took over 1000 photos, which are all waiting to be sorted through… Keep posted!)
I’m off to London and I can’t wait. I love London and can’t wait to explore with a new set of eyes. I believe that the last time I was in London, apart from airport trips; was Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park in December 2014. Nearly two years?!?!
I am also participating in Tough Mudder, excited yet nervous. The 12 mile obstacle course, with mud, fire, ice cold water and a hell of a lot of running.
With my training taken a back-seat since the summer has been so busy, a couple of circuits sessions here and there is pretty much all of the training I have done…
Have you taken part in Tough Mudder? Advice please!
What have you done this August?
Where is September taking you?
