Thinking of Taking up Bicycle Touring?
We are currently on our first bicycle tour. So far our journey has taken us from Nuorgam, on the Finnish-Norwegian border to the north of Germany.
A Treasure Chest Of Traditional Tales
I fell in love with the written word when my parents would read me bedtime stories. The Disneyfied versions of Cinderella and Snow White were fine, but when I discovered the collection of traditional Finnish fairy tales, I was hooked.
The Safe House
Emily stared at the waves lapping the shore. The rising tide inched closer, and she had to avoid contact with the toxic water. Soon the passageway would close, cutting her off the mainland. With no food and only a two litre bottle of clean water left, she had to leave the island where she had hid since the discovery of their safe house.
Ride to Raise Awareness
If you hadn’t heard yet that one in two people will get cancer in their lifetime, I apologise for being the one to deliver the news. That’s 50% of the population. But how many of us think it won’t happen to me?
Is Dorothy Home?
There are few unsolved cases that are more chilling than the disappearance and death of Dorothy Jane Scott. She was only 32-years old when she disappeared on May 28th 1980 in Anaheim, California.
The Mysterious Disappearance
This unsolved crime might not have made the headlines, but it has nonetheless kept my friends and I guessing for many, many years.
My Happy Place
For some a happy place is hiking through the woods, climbing a mountain or chilling out on a beautiful beach. While all of those things are wonderful, I have a happy place closer to home. I find my happy place through knitting and crocheting.
Not So Wild But Still Beautiful
Living in a city like London, I am often surrounded by a concrete jungle. When I look out of my window, the brick wall of the opposite block looks back at me. I do my best to shut out the noise of the traffic and the far too frequent blaring sirens of police, fire engines, and ambulances.
