  • 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 […]

  • Covid Can’t Stop Me – Tier 3 Adventuring

    I may have gotten stuck in Dundee for all. of 2020 thanks to Covid, but there is no way I could let that mess up my year. And while proper multi-day adventure trips may not really be a possibility right now, my adventurer heart decided it was time for some Covid defiance and I spent […]

  • 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. […]

  • Fall Hike up Ben Vrackie

    Reaching the outdoors from Dundee can sometimes seem a little difficult without a car, especially with current circumstances not allowing for car-sharing or SU buses for club sessions.

Started off in Scotland and had to make it to Southend airport, almost missed our bus to London, got stopped at the gate while boarding (I […]

  • Highlands Trip

    On November 17th I took a trip with the International Society up into the highlands of Scotland.  It was worth every penny, and it would have been worth every penny if it had been twice the amount.  To recap, we traveled with Nory from Heartland Travels (https://www.heartlandtravel.co.uk/) and it was absolutely fantastic. Our nights were […]

  • Bargain Adventures

    As someone who tries to travel as much as I can, having a budget is integral. I also ignore it a lot, but that’s a separate issue. I was lucky enough to grow up in a fairly transient household, so the idea of moving around is high on my list of priorities, but with the […]

  • The Hobbit!

    One of the highlights of my holiday so far has been going to see the Hobbit. I went to see it in HFR 3D at the Vue cinema at Westfield. This is also where I saw the first The Hobbit film! This is no coincidence; my boyfriend lives nearby (ish) and this is one of the […]
