One of my favourite things to do when I visit my grandparents in Oregon is to go crabbing. My last meal would probably be something with crab in it as I love it that much. I don’t know if you have ever tried to go and buy some fresh (or not so fresh) crab, but it’s PRICEY. A crabbing license and some chicken legs to catch your own is cheaper, and a lot more fun.CONTINUE READING
One of my favourite places to go walking is Lady Bower reservoir, just on the outskirts of Sheffield. On sunny days it’s beautiful, and in the fall it’s one of the few places around where you can really see the leaves turn colours. There’s quite a few trails all over the area, but our favourite is to go all the way around the reservoir as the trail most of the time stays pretty close to the water. CONTINUE READING
A couple weekends ago it was our friend Michael’s birthday, so his lovely sister organised for us to go paint balling. Now I had never been before, but had been shot by my brothers in our backyard with paintballs (thanks bros) so was prepared for the pain of getting shot, or so I thought.
So you want to know what I eat while traveling? ALL of the food. When going to different places, it’s important to try the local cuisine, and while I do this with pleasure, I also eat the most indulgent things when traveling to a different country. My reasoning is always, well I wouldn’t do this at home, so I might as well take advantage of it here! Not to mention most places we go we walk enough to work all those calories off a little. That’s what we say to feel better about the massive amount of food we consume anyway.CONTINUE READING
I really enjoyed visiting The Workhouse, and learning more about England’s history, but I’ve struggled with coming up exactly how to write about it. It’s one of those places that seems like there is a good idea behind it, helping the poor, getting them off the street and giving them shelter and food. Yet the people who lived there hardly lived a life at all.
