Warning… May Cause Hunger

I have often sung the praises of Indian food on a plant based diet and this post will be no exception. I absolutely love going out for a curry because I know the variety of starters, mains and sides will be epic and very very tasty!

The Wonderful Weymouth Walkway

Yesterday Kerry and I went for a wander along the Weymouth Walkway, it’s a stunning coastal tramp a mere 10 minutes from where we’re currently staying. It’s steeped in natural beauty and native wildlife and the vistas across to Manukau Harbour are breath-taking. I took a few snaps on my iPhone (so I apologise for… Continue reading The Wonderful Weymouth Walkway
