• Add a Little Awesome

    Anyone who knows me well will be used to regularly hearing about the weird adventure ideas I have come up with that specific week. This morning, I dragged one of my friends to cycle out to the beach before 7am to go swim in the freezing Tay at sunrise and then eat chocolate cake on […]

  • Camperdown, Templeton and Clatto

    Another blog post and once again I am taking you to the edge of Dundee, right to the north-western city boundary, to the area around Camperdown, Templeton and Clatto Reservoir. Rather than writing a lot, I just wanted to let a series of photos speak for why you should not give these a miss. To […]

  • The Sidlaws: Part 1 – The East

    Today I am taking you all along on another of my favourite local adventures from Dundee, or well actually the place for a multitude of adventures – the Sidlaws.

  • Bye 2020

    New year, a new chance at a better year? After a very unusual 2020, for many 2021 might seem like a chance to do all the things we could not this year. But really, looking back, to me 2020 was one of my favourite years yet. Either way, I still hope you have at least some […]

  • Things you can do without leaving your flat

    My flatmate is returning back from home next week (hopefully no more flight cancellations…) and will be sending us both into quarantine for ten days. As much as I hate the thought of staying inside despite not actually having managed to travel myself, it had me wondering what I could do for ten days and […]

  • How to spend Christmas alone

    With most of my friends starting to go home now, I am reminded of my lack of fixed plans for the holidays.

  • My Favourite Dundee Trails

    As much as I would love to be off adventuring somewhere new, tier 3 is keeping me around Dundee at the moment. While I cannot be scrambling up mountain trails right now, the city does have a few trails for small adventures that can still make you feel like you are miles away from uni. […]
