Where Have I Been?

Where Have I Been?

The answer’s Mexico. It has been on my mind lately how little I’ve actually added to this blog. It’s the same old story with hundreds of bloggers around the world, a ton of half finished posts saved offline in a drafts folder and life just gets in the way! I thought I would just share a few videos from my Youtube channel to keep readers of this blog up to date with what Emma and I have been doing. For…

UK Games Expo 2018 – Sneak Preview

It’s that time of year again. That time of year where it is beautiful outside, the sun is shining and the birds are tweeting… And avid tabletop gaming fans like myself look forward to spending an entire weekend inside the Birmingham N.E.C’S Hall 1 exploring the UK Games Expo. I’ll be covering this year’s event in a press capacity, if you missed my article about last year’s expo, you can find it here. Otherwise, read on for a sneak preview…

Why Are We Going Back To Mexico?

Why Are We Going Back To Mexico?

Because it’s beautiful. There, I answered the question straight away (screw you click-bait dwelling bottom feeders!) and I’ve wanted to share this with you all for a while in all honesty. Mexico, a country known for drugs, violence and immigration issues, has stolen our hearts. The fact is, Mexico City and the North West may be pretty dodgy for your average tourist, but the Caribbean Coast is simply incredible. All one has to do is to fly into Cancun airport,…

London.

London.

London has endured a bit of bad rep lately with the likes of shocking terrorist incidents in the news, violent assaults and thefts by moped gangs in broad daylight and reports of sexual assaults on the underground. Even though I’ve ventured out to the big city many times before, this well travelled Devon born lad felt a little bit anxious when Emma and I visited recently for a day out. But allow me to tell you what actually happened when…

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

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…

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

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…

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…
