It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane ride felt extremely long. Probably due to the fact that we were seated apart and I was placed in the middle of a family who proceeded to talk and pass tings across me but that’s another story) over to Florida was required as the ship was to set sail from Port Canaveral just outside of Orlando.
Everyone needs a holiday every so often. Of course, that ‘holiday’ can come in many forms, but I guess the key theme is that of a break from the norm. To do something different, to relax, to turn up, and to unwind. A short holiday I had this year was to Marrakech, and asides from being a much needed break from the norm and break away from the stresses of work I was going through, it was the chance to explore somewhere completely different and new to what I ever have before. Though the trip was short, it ended up being somewhere that left an imprint on me – visually and culturally. I took a few shots on the short trip and have a few recommendations for anyone thinking to check our the Moroccan city.
Summer is here, right? Who knows in London. Still, it’s that time of the year to enjoy this city to the most. By that we mean getting the hell out of here. Kidding… Kinda. This weekend we’re in Brighton covering WILD LIFE Festival. We count that as the kick start of summer. With that said, it gave us some time to look forward to the summer ahead and what we’re setting out for. We outchea.
It’s been a very long time since the site has seen a truly personal post, since one of us has shared how we’re really feeling. It’s been almost two years since Yin published, Losing Your Equilibrium, which I remember impacting me greatly when I first read it, one of the lessons he imparted upon us was to ‘Be energised by what you do.’ At a time when I don’t feel particularly energised, let’s return to that idea, hopefully this’ll be cathartic for me and in sharing my feelings I can put some other people at ease by letting them know they’re not alone.
While the name Jacob Anderson might not ring bells immediately, Raleigh Ritchie most likely does and if you’re a Game of Thrones fan then Grey Worm, commander of the Unsullied, might even be his most familiar alter ego. Fortunately Grey Worm was no where to be found and we met the man somewhere between Raleigh and Jacob to talk life, music, videos, acting and his debut album, You’re a Man Now, Boy.
Layovers/stop offs during a trip can sometimes be lengthy. Lengthy enough to actually go out and explore? Probably not. But on a rare occasion it can happen. That rarity meaning caught in a hurricane on a cruise ship in the Atlantic Ocean off of the Carolina coast, and having to turn back around to where you started – New York City. A story for the grandkids, but for now, here’s a shorter story of two half-day stop offs in NYC either side of a cruise from hell.
London has a massive running culture, you’ve probably seen local running groups jog past you as you drag yourself to the corner shop on a Sunday morning in need of milk and Honey Nut Cheerios. You’ve likely heard of illustrious groups such as Run Dem Crew, who regularly take over London’s streets and who’s popularity has snowballed since their inception. London’s passion for running culminates once a year with the world renowned London Marathon, a massive celebration that knows no boundaries and manages to generate excitement each and every year come rain or shine. While this 5km with Nike and Kevin Hart was far from a marathon, it was the longest distance Adam and I had ever run, so did we even make it to the finish line?
