Towns have names, villages have names, headlands have names, hills have names, in fact most things have names……but how often is a gap given a name? 864 more words

Fish, chips and cream tea

Cztery miesiące w Anglii. Pod stosem papierów, referencji i niezliczonej ilości formularzy, nie wiem kiedy minęły. Miało być prosto. Miało być na chwilę. Dzisiaj trzymam w ręku dwadzieścia siedem stron kontraktu na roczny wynajem mieszkania i z niedowierzaniem przechadzam się po jego jasnych dywanach. 293 more words

Snapshot in time: The sun awakens over Dorset

With miles of historic coastline to its name, Dorset offers myriad uninterrupted opportunities to watch the dawn break.

One of the most iconic locations is Old Harry Rocks: three chalk formations marking the most easterly point of the Jurassic Coast between Swanage and Studland, the site offers an atmospheric setting to watch the sun make its appearance and bathe the neighbouring towns of Bournemouth and Poole in a whole new light.

Snapshot In Time

Swanning off to Swanage

The other day I had the chance of a lift down to Bournemouth for the day so I grabbed my stuff and jumped in. It wasn’t the town itself that was the attraction so much as what there is on the doorstep. 1,009 more words

Learning to sail in Poole Harbour

I love where I live. You have everything you could possibly wish for in easy reach – the beautiful sandy beaches of Sandbanks and Canford Cliffs, the rolling Purbeck hills, even the New Forest National Park is less than an hour away. 277 more words

Lifestyle

Hartland Moor Cycle

A beautiful ride indeed. I cycled along Bournemouth seafront and then across on the chain ferry to Studland. First stop on the ride was to try and find Old Harry Rocks, I tried in first year but kept seeing them on a different cliff to the one I was on (it got very frustrating). 170 more words
