It looks like I have competition! As many of my followers know I love traveling, one of my traveling friends sent me this instragram profile that I just had to share.

Meet Biddy, the hedgehog, his Instagram follwing is massive for his traveling antics, a lot of people now keep hedgehogs as pets but this little fella seems to have better advetures than me now!


Theres loads of cute photos of Biddy online, showcasing some fantastic places to visit, some of which have inspired me to take another trip to America.

You can follow Biddy’s adventures on Instragram, they can be found under the username “biddythehedgehog”.



Hiking is a great way to explore the world around us, and access places that are only accessible on foot.

But if you do plan to hiking you need to ensure you’ve got the right equipment, today I’m going though the top 3 hiking tents you can use on your next holiday.

  1. Easy Camp Go Shadow 200 Tent

    This lightweight, tunnel tent is ideal when on the move, this tent also features a sheltered porch for storage and a pocket to store small items such as torch’s or sunglasses.

  2. Vango Soul 100 Tent

    This solo tent is great for those hiking on your own, lightweight and breathable, these Vango tents are also a great all round tent and not just for hiking.
  3. KingCamp Holiday 3 Tent

    For larger groups, a KingCamp Holiday 3 tent is a great tent for group outings, with a porch to allow storage for muddy boots and other items.

Some great choices of tents for you to chose from, let me know if you choose any for your next hiking trip.



I’m a big lover of French wine, and on my bucket list of things to do before I die, visiting a French Vineyard was one of them.

In January I managed to get away for a short weekend break to La Grande Maison d’Arthenay in Loire.

I couldn’t recommend it enough, if you’ve yet to visit France, or if you’re a big wine lover like myself then you really do need to visit this place.

I loved it so much that I’ve already booked again to go in the Summer.
