Trying to make a Youtube video!

As I have had a few days of lately I decided to have a play around and try to create a YouTube video while I was at Trimley Reservoir on Tuesday.

I have never made a video before but recently I have wanted to try and edit a video as it is something I have never tried to do so had no idea if it was something I would even be able to do. I watch a lot of YouTube videos and really enjoy watching videos where they go to places I have never been before. So I thought I would take some footage to show people what the reservoir was like as on a nice sunny day it it such a peaceful place to go.

I actually really enjoyed the process of making the video and would like to try to make some more in the future. I obviously have a lot of improve on as it was my first attempt but overall I am quite happy with how it turned out.

Here is the video I made from the clips that I managed to get:-

Take Bake Tuesday – Fraser Island

A few years ago when I was travelling in Australia I went one of their trips to Fraser Island. I went on my own and it was one of the last trips that I did before coming back to the UK. This was the first trip that I had done in Australia on my own and I was quite nervous because I did have to travel to a different part of Australia for the trip. Travelling around Australia is super easy though as there are loads of coach companies you can use.
The trip to Fraser island consisted of camping on the island with a group of people and driving around to different areas of the island using 4×4’s. I had seen pictures of the island and it looked amazing so I knew it was something I needed to do before I returned home. As I had gone on this trip on my own I was super nervous because I didn’t know anyone but I soon realised there was a lot of people in the same situation as me. We were split into groups of 8 and these were the people who you would be camping with and those who you would share the car with.
We went to the local supermarkets before we left to stock up of food for the next few days and then we set off to find Fraser island. We drove though the forests and along the beach. Our car did at one point get stuck in the sand but luckily we were able to get out. We visited Lake McKenzie, the champagne pools, Lake Wabby and Eli Creek. We also visited Indian Head where the views were amazing and we also stopped by the Maheno Shipwreck. We had BBQ’s on an evening and enjoyed watching the sun set and rise on the beach.
This was a once in a lifetime trip and It was truly an amazing experience and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.


It’s Saturday!!

The sun is shining and it’s Saturday…. What a perfect combination.

After a busy week I have had a fairly slow start to the weekend but now I am up and ready to go and enjoy the sunshine. I think we are going to go and explore Worcester today. I have been to Worcester quite a few times before and I always have a good time there. There is quite a few shops to look round and a lovely walk by the river. It’s that sunny today I might even have to myself to an ice cream 🙂

Last night I was reunited with an old friend and I really enjoyed catching up and laughing at all the funny stories we have from when we were younger. It’s funny how no matter how long it’s been since we last saw each other it is always the same and feels like it is back to how it was when we were teenagers. We were laughing at how times had changed because usually we would have gone on a night out when she comes back but yesterday we just went on a nice walk…. We must be getting older! It’s always nice having old friends back in your life even if it’s only for a couple of hours.
I feel quite motivated today so when I get home tonight I think I am going to get back onto the job hunting and see what jobs pop up. I am still waiting for an interview to be scheduled but I can’t keep waiting around for it as there is never any guarantee that I would even get that job and I could miss out on another opportunity while I wait. I’ve got to keep trying and then something will eventually appear that I am really interested in.

Anyway I am off to enjoy the sunshine…. so make sure you enjoy it too!

Saturday Feeling!

Saturday is my favourite day of the weekend…probably because I know I still have the whole of Sunday left off work too. I haven’t got anything special planned today so I can do whatever I fancy. I have had a nice chilled morning relaxing and now I am off in to town to have a walk and a mooch around a few shops.

I have heard that Wilkinson’s has got half price pic and mix so I might have to have a sneaky visit to investigate. Who doesn’t love pic and pic!!

I am then going to visit my nan as I usually do on a Saturday and have a catchup. Later I am off for a walk and a meal at a cosy pub with the boyfriend so it is quite a nice relaxing Saturday today.

The weather is a lot cooler today which is actually quite nice after how hot it has been all week and we can finally take the dogs out for a walk. We have had my sister’s dog staying all week and he loves his walk. I enjoy the walks as much as the dogs do as I love being outside and exploring.


I decided to dig through some of my old photos from a few years ago when I went travelling in Australia for 3 months after I finished university. Now that I am quite comfortable in my job the thought of quitting and going travelling like I did in 2014 just about sounds impossible. I would love to go travelling again and would tell anybody who is thinking about going to Australia to jump on a plane now. I love Australia and really enjoyed visiting new places and meeting people from all over the world, many of whom I still have on Facebook now.
I started off my travels by staying in Melbourne, I stayed in cheap hostels so that I could make our money last as long as possible. I stayed in Melbourne for 3 weeks and then decided to travel up the east coast staying in various places including Sydney and Brisbane. Each place left me with so many memories and experiences.
I love the chilled vibe in Melbourne and I think this might actually be my favourite place that we stayed in. Don’t get me wrong I loved everywhere that we stayed but that was just something about Melbourne.
I might do another blog at some point to show what I got up to in each area that I stayed in and what activities I got up too.
Here are a couple of my favourite pictures from the trip:-
