I love to walk. I walk a lot in Norfolk, but the thing about Norfolk is it is rather flat.
Ok- now that is a lie, I can safely attest that there are hills, but Beeston Bump aside there are no great inclines.
I have had the hiking bug for quite some time now, but it would be quite a journey to hike my first peak. I’d have to head inland and the two combined would turn into a multi- day trip, which at the moment isn’t really possible.
So when I discovered that the island in the Whitsundays I would be staying on had a peak I made a note in my notebook that I would be doing it.

Yesterday I finished work at 1pm and had “nothing to do.”
The weather was stunning so I decided to walk the 5(ish) miles along the coast from Sheringham to Cromer. It’s something I have been thinking about doing for a while – but as it says above, “travel procrastinator.” I should change that to “adventure and travel procrastinator” now, as I am always having ideas but no way to actually do them.
Sure this was a micro adventure- but it was an adventure none the less.
Before I left I did my checks!
Make a cup of tea- check!
Change into walking boots-check!
Check with local RNLI Crewmember if I was going to get cut off by the tide and down-
I was all good to go!
( I do work with the RNLI guy so when we changed over at work he was the one to ask- he has an app for tides and everything!)

As soon as we started talking about our trip to Las Vegas we all agreed there was no way we were not visiting the Grand Canyon. There were so many tour options out there, ranging through all sorts of prices, with helicopter rides, raft rides, MULE rides and bright pink hummers.
After much discussion and many a google, we went with the Platinum South Rim Tour of The Grand Canyon – booked through Papillon Tours but in the end the actual tour operator was Gray Line. Our tour came in at £140 but as you can see through the links above, it pays to shop about as the same tour can cost a lot less on different sites. (Especially if you were on a tight budget like I was)

I just realised that I have been back in North Norfolk now for 9 months! I can’t believe how much time has flown by.
I am really enjoying being back. Work is brilliant, and I have more time to try and organise and sort my life out… which after 7 years in London, seriously needs to happen.
This post is just a round up of some of the photography that has happened whilst I have been back. Norfolk truly is beautiful and I carry my camera around with me all the time now.
Expect a lot more on this blog over the coming months as adventures are a foot and I have a few past trips to write about too! I will also be nosing around the Norfolk and Norwich Festival in the next couple of weeks so keep an eye out for some blog posts about that!
But now- to the sea!

It’s been a quiet few weeks on the blog front. I had to put my blogging on hold to work on a project and now that’s all done and done I can get back to writing about my totally exciting London life.
Except (hopefully) it is going to get a little more exciting over the summer. I have a few workshops and events booked in, as well as the Star Trek Beyond premiere and quite a few theatre trips.
It’s looking up!
I found myself with a few days off from both jobs this weekend and so decided to head for the countryside.

Over the last few weeks the weather has been pretty amazing, we keep getting these little blasts of summer. This has been lovely as I am back working at Regents Park Open Air Theatre for the summer, and we need good weather for that!
