We will always have Dallas…

I’ve recently returned from what was a thoroughly excellent holiday to Texas with a brief stint in Mexico as a bonus. The main trip was as part of a relatively big group and I had the pleasure of meeting some excellent people along the way. I suspect I could talk for hours about the trip, […]

Everything’s bigger in…

So it’s getting towards the end of March, I’ve been writing this blog for almost three months now and I fly out to Texas in a few days. Yeehaw! This holiday was booked entirely on a whim. I’d seen a friend talking on social media about a music festival that was happening out there, but […]
