10 things I’ll do once I am driving!

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I have *finally* booked my driving test in early November.

It’s safe to say I have a list as long as my arm of things I want to do once I pass and am finally on the road. 

Whilst most people would expect me to be off in Alice exploring the UK – there are so many things that have caught my eye in North Norfolk since I moved back in late 2016. Yes the world is my oyster, but I want to spend the winter getting to know Alice, and how she drives. I want to be confident in my driving ( I am doing a 40 hour beginner intensive course) and know I need to build these skills. Once I have spend some time behind the wheel we will be off. And I will be documenting it all on this blog and my Instagram!

But that doesn’t mean that I cant explore the local area in the time being. After all we are a tourist destination – there are SO many things to do.

Here is my top 10 – in no particular order…

This trip has really given me something special.

Miles of Sand and Seashells – Day Two of Walking the Norfolk Coast Path

When I rolled out of my cocoon on day two I was fully expecting to be the biggest ball of ache known to mankind. 

But all was good!!

(sometimes I forget that I cycle or walk 6 miles a day, 5 days a week, I am healthier than I think I am)

I decided on an early start so I could take my time and dawdle to my hearts content. I had had a fairly early night in the grand scheme of things so had plenty of sleep. The camp bed is such a cozy thing it was hard to get out.

I shuffled out of the campsite at 7:30 with just my backpack on my back.

Leaving the tent and my things behind. 

It was such an odd feeling just up and walking out – I felt like I had forgotten to do something. 

But magic was about to happen….

My tent was magically going to transport itself 14 miles down the coast!

I just had to walk it – and not get lost doing so.
