My First Peak- Hiking Passage Peak on Hamilton Island

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.

Fun House- Brisbane Festival 2017

The first post from my amazing trip to Australia is about a theatre show- which was actually one of the last things I did whilst out there. BUT this show finishes on Sunday 24th September so I wanted to post this before then just in case it tempts anyone in and around Brisbane to go!

Fun House was created by Strut & Fret especially for this years Brisbane Festival. They are the same company who created “Limbo” and “Blanc de Blanc” ( both of which have been performed in the UK so fingers crossed for Fun House making the trip overseas.)

Shakespeare With The Handlebards

Last Friday I saw my first ( and sadly probably only) outdoor theatre of the summer.

Shakespeare’s As You Like It performed by brilliant company – The Handlebards.

The Handlebards started their journey in 2013 and are currently two troupes of cycling actors who carry all of the necessary set, props and costume to perform Shakespeare plays around the world.

On beautiful Pashely bicycles.

Sheringham to Cromer on Foot.

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-

No?

Nope?

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!)

Grand Canyon South Rim Tour 

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)

“Wild” Swimming, Patagonia & Theatre Cats!

June was quite the busy month!

I was working full on at both theatres, with two changes of  production too!

At the end of June Breakfast at Tiffany’s arrived after a national tour, starring Pixie Lott. We are its home for the next 12 weeks and it’s all looking rather good. I should hopefully be watching next week so keep an eye out for a review! And keep an eye out on my instagram, as there is a cat in the show and I am determined to meet him!
