Our Adventurous Holiday in Timor-Laste

“We are off to Timor-Laste for a 10 day holiday”, said Hayley and Phil. The typical response would would be “What? Where?” Or as my mum put it “is that a random country in the Middle East that is with war with the Americans?” The answer is it’s a small country that is in between…

Exploring Cymer Abbey at the Snowdonia National Park in a Summer Morning

In August, Hayley and I went to the UK to see the family and friends. It had been a long time since we visited and we really enjoyed it very much despite it was really a whirlwind trip.
