A letter to those going to Long Point Camp

Apologies if you’re coming to hear about my cycling trip around the world – I desperately tried to get it uploaded but the wifi was too slow to upload new pictures. It’ll be up asap! This one-off post is about one of my other adventures; Camp America. Hey there, On June 21st, you will be […]

Not returning to Camp in 2015 (probably)

I don’t mean to be melodramatic when I say that the decision whether or not to go back to Long Point Camp in 2015 has been one of the most difficult dilemmas I’ve faced. I can quite easily say that the 5 months I’ve spent in America over the past year and a half have […]

Travel Tale: The time we ran the bases!

Skydiving

Skydiving… Pretty high up nearly everyone’s bucket list eh? Well, mine included, for quite a while! It’s something I’ve long wanted to do, but always thought I’d just do another day.
