Walton-on-the-Naze is a small seaside town in Essex and it is where I spent a large proportion of my childhood. My Nan owned a caravan at the Naze Marine holiday park and so me and my family always had a place to stay. This week my family spent a week in Walton-on-the-Naze and the weather wasn’t brilliant however we managed to make the most of it. As it is a small town, it seems that there isn’t much to do, however there are plenty of things to do in Walton-on-the-Naze. I am going to tell you just how you can make the most of your time at the seaside. The Beach The main thing to do in Walton-on-the-Naze is to take advantage of the fact that you are at the seaside. This past week, although the weather has fluctuated, we managed to have one sunny day at the beach. From…

It has now been two years since I jetted off to the United States to spend an entire summer working as a lifeguard on a Girl Scout Camp. Thanks to Camp America I was able to have the summer of a lifetime and meet many incredible and brilliant people. Although it was two years ago, I still remember exactly how nervous I was boarding that plane wondering if I was making the right decision. Well, I did make the right decision, and so I thought I would share 5 of my fondest memories from my summer spent doing Camp America! 1) The Paint War One of my favourite memories about working on a summer camp in the United States was how random and bizarre some days would get. The activities for the kids are enjoyable not only for the campers but for the counsellors too. For two weeks over the…

The Hidden Gems of a location are a list of activities/ places to see that are not high on the radar of that area but are still well worth a visit.

After living in Manchester for the best part of three years, it now feels like home. That being said, when I first moved to Manchester from Essex, I found the city very daunting. I have lived very central to the city centre and so it feels like the city never sleeps (not that I’m saying that Manchester is in anyway on the same scale as New York City). Fortunately for me, my partner is from Manchester and so when I met him, I became more familiar with what to do in Manchester. There are so many different areas in Manchester to explore. So, I’ve compiled a guide to living in Manchester for the people who are thinking of moving to the city. This way you won’t be as clueless as me on my first day in Manchester and you’ll know what to expect. Everyone is extremely friendly When I first…

It’s that time of year when I begin to start thinking about where I want to be this summer. After a hard year of work, there is nothing I would want more than chilling on a beach with a cocktail in hand. But, before you can be relaxing in paradise you need to consider a few things. The first thing you need to do is actually book a holiday, which sounds easy enough but when there are thousands of hotels to choose from, it can be hard to make a decision. So, I’ve decided to write a post containing all the things you need to look for in a summer holiday. Budget The first thing you need to consider is how far your budget will take you. There’s no point thinking of booking a holiday in Barbados for two weeks from England if the flight alone would steal half of…
