Finding The One

Everyone searches for the one.

I’ve been searching for the last few years now.

I thought I had found the one in Merlin. I met him stuck in a muddy field when I moved back to Norfolk in 2016. I fell in love instantly.

Born in 1987 like me, he was a little quirky and needed some love. But sadly it wasn’t meant to be. He was perfect for now, but not for the long term.

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.

Sunday at the Stanfords Travel Writers Festival.

The Destinations Travel Show was held at Kensington Olympia from the 4th till the 7th of February. The vast hall contained over 550 travel brands for you to peruse at your hearts content. That’s if you weren’t distracted by the plethora of talks, performances and food.

The main reason I attended was to go to as many talks as possible at the Stanfords Travel Writers Festival. I am a travel procrastinator extraordinaire. I love reading about people’s adventures into the unknown. I dream about doing these things myself. At the moment I am working on getting my fitness up to a good level so that it’s one less thing to worry about should I ever venture out my door when I find a ‘thing’ I want to do. (more like decide which of many ‘things’ I will do.)

That Bug Called Wanderlust.

These last few weeks (pah – years) I have been suffering from a horrible problem. It’s been on my brain constantly and with it being fairly quiet at work, it’s all I’ve been thinking about.

I have a case of chronic wanderlust.

With this year’s holiday coming up, I am starting to think about 2016 and beyond. Because you always need holidays planned, I personally need something to look forward each year.

For 2016 I have been jumping between the idea of India and Japan, then I think about how much of Europe there is to see. Then there is the US and Canada.

I can’t make up my mind – I just want to go everywhere.

So why don’t I?
