Solo Traveller

This post was originally published on 4th February 2019 and updated on 11th August 2019. The first time I travelled abroad on my own, I received a mixed reaction from friends and family.

Green Fingered Gingernut

I first fell in love with gardening when I moved into my first house. I was in my mid 20s, with my first mortgage, and my very own back garden. And it was awful. With the neighbours conifer trees blocking out all signs of sunlight, and the stickiest clay soil I had ever tried to…
