The New Doctor Who is Female & The Internet Has Melted

The New Doctor Who is Female & The Internet Has Melted

I haven’t posted in a little while, but something happened today which caught my eye and demanded some attention here on the blog. The BBC have introduced a female Doctor Who, and the internet is currently going into meltdown over it. First of all, I hereby accuse the BBC of breaching basic human rights by subjecting thousands of ‘Whovians’ across the U.K to torture, by declaring that the 13th Doctor would be revealed (at an unspecified time might I add)…

Here’s Why You Need To Go To The U.K Games Expo

If you’re even remotely interested in board games, but have never been to a tabletop games expo or convention… I’m about to explain to you the error of your ways. Arriving at the NEC in Birmingham, I make my way down to Hall 1 where I am about to attend my first ever board game convention – The U.K Games Expo. The first clue that I’m in the right place is when a perfect cosplay of Sailor Moon walks right past me…

We Completed Land’s End to John O’Groats… And It Made Us Hate Each Other

We Completed Land’s End to John O’Groats… And It Made Us Hate Each Other

“We’re back HERE again!?” Mingz states the obvious from the passenger seat, with more than a hint of frustration in his voice as he twists and contorts the map in an effort to find the best route out of Sunderland. I’m about to enter my 6th hour of driving our old red Toyota Avensis that, quite frankly, has seen better days. In the back, Nick is leaning against the door holding the camera and proceeds to scream wildly out of…

The Drayton Manor Tragedy – What Happened & What Are The Consequences?

I’m going to take a break from my usual light-hearted blog to discuss an awful and truly horrific incident. An 11 year old girl named Evha Jannath tragically died on a water ride at Drayton Manor theme park in Staffordshire, England on Tuesday, 9th May. I’ve been following this news story all week, and I still have a few questions. How did this happen? Could it have been prevented? What is the impact of this on both the people involved and the theme…

What It’s REALLY Like To Visit Disney World As A Grown Up

It’s the dream of children everywhere, finally getting to visit Disney World. But what about when we stop being children and have to, you know, be an adult and stuff? I’m talking about dragging yourself to work, the crushing disappointment of spending most of your money on bills and the monotony of buying your own toilet roll. What happens when you, an actual real life adult, decide to visit Disney World, and no children are along for the ride? After…

Dumped at Walt Disney World: The Happiest Place on Earth?

Dumped at Walt Disney World: The Happiest Place on Earth?

My day has been almost completely consumed today by my morbid fascination with a Disney related tweet that has just gone viral. It has left me with so many questions. How can something like this happen at the happiest place on Earth? Last night @thedisneychef was kind enough to share with the internet something she witnessed at Walt Disney World in Florida. Brace yourselves, this story is just awful. After a great day watching Fantasmic and enjoying some rides at Disney’s…

Sharing Our Adventures With The World

Sharing Our Adventures With The World

“What’s that guy doing with our suitcase!?” Emma asks me with panic laced through her words. We’d arrived at Cancun airport and after stepping off the aircraft into the blistering Mexico heat and shuttling to the main terminal, we were greeted by an army of blue-shirted men waiting to carry all of our luggage in exchange for a small tip. The truth is, we’re British. We had just flown from the most miserable, unhelpful and obnoxious country I know of…
