The news of backpacker Grace Millane in New Zealand broke my heart. I got really upset about it and how her family have lost their daughter, how she won’t be able to return home to them and share all her stories of her travels. Her amazing adventure was cut short by a sick individual who thought he had the right to end her life. Her solo travels ended by a tragedy. Continue reading
A lot can be said for the humble UK break. It was all I ever knew growing up. My Mum and Dad would pack us into the car, up to our eyeballs in suitcases and pillows, the windbreak and bucket and spades crammed between us, for the 5 hour drive down to Cornwall nearly every year until we were 16 – and we loved it. We knew no different. But we did know we were in for 2 weeks of relaxed parenting, ice cream on tap and pretty much an anything-goes attitude whilst away from our usual routine.

After our week of adventure touring the gorgeous Costa Rica, it was time for some R&R at the Riu Guanacaste, in Playa Matapolo.

Pura Vida you lovely lot! Something I’ve been hashtagging the sh*t out of these past two weeks whilst living it up in Costa Rica with my best friend Sally. It means ‘pure life’ or ‘simple life’ but is ultimately a way of life. The Costa Rican culture and people had us enthralled from the start, and visiting a new place never fails to get me excited and appreciating things outside my little bubble. I’ve put together a post about where we went and some tips for if you go yourself! Why not go and watch the video I created over on my YouTube channel HERE – and I’ll love you forever if you subscribe whilst you’re there 😊
With only 6 days until me and Sally jet off to Costa Rica for 2 weeks of sun, sea and plenty of exploring, I wanted to put together my tips for travelling long haul – a kind of tick list I’ve gone through prior to getting on that plane.
Life has got in the way of my blog lately, I’ve been very busy, my mind has been distracted and I’ve found it hard to conjure up enough positivity to write some good content for the Positiff Blog. However, a long weekend with my best friends has reignited my want to share the good with you all and there is nothing like a prosecco-fuelled life discussion in a hot tub to get my brain back in the game!
