An eclectic mix of the weird stuff I’m in the mood to write about, this blog is a notice board for my ramblings and musings. Whether it’s travel, lifestyle, poetry or personal posts, you can explore by clicking one of the category’s above the Venetian rooftops or check out my most recent posts on the left. Happy reading!

I´m currently writing a book titled ¨I choose love¨ that is about the journey I went through before, during and after coming out as a lesbian. It´s about how I navigated life up until the first time I fell in love at 24 years old. How I navigated eating disorders, moving country, travelling, alcohol, trauma, gender, university, crushes, sex and love. It´s an intimate and very detailed look into my past, describing some of the events that shaped me in the most crucial of ways and led to the day I cancelled my appointment with the sexual health clinic in Manchester to get the coil fitted and threw out all the condoms that had remained, untouched, in my draw since I was 16. The day I finally embraced that I was a lesbian and drew a big sigh of relief at the fact that I would never have to sleep with a guy again.

The book is in the editing stages of its life, I have no publishing date, I have no plan apart from to do my absolute best in each stage of this process.

A bit about me..

I was born in Kuwait, lived in Bahrain until I was 8, then moved to the Isle Of Wight in England. Then moved back to Bahrain when I was 13, then moved back to the Isle of Wight when I was 15. As you can imagine, a back and forth life was hard but taught me an invaluable amount about people and culture. I finished school with an insatiable appetite for travel and knowledge, so at 18 moved to Tunisia for 4 months working as an activity’s rep coordinating kids club sessions and poolside/beach activities at a Holiday Village. I then moved over to Australia with a working holiday visa, and spent the year partly working around Sydney and WA, and traveled my way up both the East and West coasts. Following Aus, I backpacked around Asia for 6 months having a whale of a time. Would recommend to everyone on the traveling fence (read some of my blog posts under travel, hopefully they will push you over the edge… into Asia or somewhere). Then I started Uni September 2015. I spent a couple of months in Europe in Easter and Summer 2016 and I loved getting to know my European neighbors a little better. I spent a year in Ecuador working at the Timburi Cocha Research Station in the Amazon Rainforest, completing a research project. Finishing the last year of my degree felt like a breeze compared to second year. Moved to Spain almost 2 years ago and have been working as an English Language teacher in an academy in Seville.  

Any other questions you have about me, feel free to ask at the bottom.

  1. I have just read your article on alcohol and, like you said towards the end of your article, I am a believer in everything in moderation. I am a huge advocate for integrative health, having been a nurse for 38 years, a massage practitioner for 14 and more recently have taken to a specific interest in nutrition especially in relation to prevention and treatment of disease…. mental health is also an area I am extremely interested in.
    Your gorgeous Auntie, Sara, is a dear friend of mine and I believe we almost met when you were staying with her recently in San Pedro. What a pity we missed one another. Anyway I am going to follow you on face book and look forward eagerly to your articles!! Well done. Clare (Webster)

    1. Ahh Clare it’s so lovely to hear from you!!
      Words from a true expert thank you!
      My dissertation at uni is using nutrition to prevent the 5 deadliest diseases in the western world so there will be a lot of posts about that over the next few months, I find it all fascinating!
      This is, of course, the beginning of my career and I’m excited to keep writing about what I love and learn as much as possible!
      Thanks for your support it’s really appreciated 🙂


  2. You went and done it. You went and followed Uncle Bardie’s Stories & Such. You are now one of Uncle Bardie’s Band of Merry Followers. Just so you know, Uncle Bardie’s a hoot, and he’s got quite a few whoppers in his bag of stories. Some funny, some not so funny. But all told for your entertainment. Thank you for following his blog.
