Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bristol

This is my favourite place to go for a walk in Bristol. A beautifully green hidden gem, this cemetery holds 170,000 of the departed in their final resting place. Most of which has been reclaimed by nature, making this cemetery so incredibly unique. Opened in 1837, the Arnos Vale was created as a spacious garden... Continue Reading →

Isolating when you’re already isolated

For four weeks the UK has been under lockdown. We have been told to self isolate with the exception of excercise and shopping for essentials. For many people this has lead to their career taking a drastic change or unfortunately, losing their job altogether. Given the circumstances, Mitch and I are very lucky to still...

The Coffin Works, Birmingham

Wowie I haven't wrote in a while, but then again, I haven't really been able to go any where in a while. You can guess what my new years resolution is! For my sister's birthday, we took the train to Birmingham to visit the Coffin Works and explore the area... Because what else do you... Continue Reading →

A brief afternoon in Brussels, Belgium

After leaving Amsterdam we rode to Brussels. It took us about three hours with a couple of stops along the way. Riding through the Netherlands is basically green fields, beautiful waterways, cows and the occasional windmill. It's stunning. We rode a long the motorway so I didn't really get any photos but here's one I... Continue Reading →

A rainy day in Amsterdam

As we've got some time off work and having recently bought a Harley Davidson, we decided we'd ride to Amsterdam. From Bristol, it takes just over eight hours. We were going to break this up into two, but as rain was forecast all day on Wednesday, we rode all the way there. I'm glad we... Continue Reading →

The Eiffel Tower, Paris

One of the first things that comes to mind when thinking of Paris, and France really, is the Eiffel Tower. Originally built in 1887, this sculpture was only meant to be temporary as part of the worldwide exhibition. The creator, Gustave Eiffel, had planned to destroy it twenty years after the exhibition ended. However, in... Continue Reading →

Montparnasse Cemetery, Paris

Okay so this is a little bit of an odd place to visit and perhaps a bit creepy, but beauty can be found any where, and there was a lot to be found at the Montparnasse Cemetery. I came across this cemetery whilst researching the area after visiting the catacombs. Well known for its abstract... Continue Reading →

Jeannot’s Floor, Paris

Standing outside of St. Anne's Hospital center in Paris, you will find Jeannots Floor. This controversial piece was taken from the farm house of Jeannot L'Bernais, in the south of France. Before it was gifted to the hospital in 2005, it was displayed at various art exhibitions. Both intrusive and intriguing, this was something I... Continue Reading →
