Caves, Beaches and Watersports in Barbados


Last November myself, my partner and two good friends headed to Barbados to get some well deserved sunshine. With Thomas Cook now running direct flights from Glasgow, it seemed like too good an offer to give up. We were lucky to come across a private villa with pool in our price range, this proved to be the perfect base for our Barbados adventure!

Three Days in Budapest

Video shot and created by Ian Walmsley

I now consider Budapest, Hungary my second home, however making time to visit Budapest and fit in trips to see the rest of the world has been getting more difficult with work commitments.

I recently tried surfing for the first time a couple of weeks ago. It was something I had meant to try whilst in Australia, but due to a leg infection, I was unable to do so. Surfing in Scotland wasn’t something I had quite imagined for my first time, I had expected to try it somewhere a bit more exotic like Australia or Hawaii. The experience however was probably just as enjoyable as trying it in a sunnier climate. We were lucky to get a good day for our trip, and once we had our wetsuits on, you couldn’t tell we were in a much colder climate!
