This was one of the first waterfalls we found in Iceland, and we found it somewhat by accident. We saw the infamous โ€˜attractionโ€™ sign (that led to most of our favourite spots) and pulled over to check it out. . The path up to the top is not for the faint of heart. Itโ€™s not marked or even remotely obvious. We just sort of clambered our way up there and hoped for the best. At the top you can feel the fresh water spraying you from the falls and admire views of the land stretching out in every direction. Walking back down was even more of a struggle. But thatโ€™s all part of the fun, right?! . This easily ranks as one of my favourite waterfalls in Iceland, largely due to the fact that it involved a little hike, we got up so close to it and we had it all to ourselves. Doesnโ€™t hurt that itโ€™s pretty too ๐Ÿ˜ . See more shots of this stunner on my stories! And find out about other amazing Icelandic falls on my blog ๐Ÿ’ฆ . Do you have a favourite waterfall? Iโ€™d love to know where it is! . #gochasewaterfalls #teamkaptainkenny #girlslovetravel at Bjarnafoss

Iโ€™ve just posted a new blog post about my favourite waterfalls in Iceland. The list could go on for ever and ever, but Iโ€™ve narrowed it down to my Top 5! Follow the link in my bio to have a browse. . This little stunner is not quite in my top 5, but itโ€™s still pretty, eh?! Itโ€™s like a river with endless waterfalls coming out of its sides! . Just up the river from here, thereโ€™s Barnafoss, a much smaller waterfall. While less strikingly beautiful, Barnafoss has an interesting (read: depressing) story behind it. In Icelandic, the name means "Children's Waterfall" named so because two children are said two have disappeared, presumbly drowned, here hundreds and hundreds of years ago. . Lots of spots around Iceland have tales or myths behind them. Usually, though, theyโ€™re a bit more mystical - involving trolls or giants or elves. . Have you been to Iceland? Did you love it as much as me?? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ . #gochasewaterfalls #teamkaptainkenny #girlslovetravel at Hraunfossar, Iceland

This is me, more than a year ago, loving life in Iceland! This was the first of many, many waterfalls I would eventually spot on my road trip round this stunning country. Iโ€™ll be sharing a blog post very soon about all my favourite waterfalls in Iceland - so prepare for a waterfall overload!!! ๐Ÿ’ฆ . You know what else I love?! SNOW! Itโ€™s been snowing almost all day in London and itโ€™s beeeaaauutiful โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ Check my stories for all the snowy adventures. . #gochasewaterfalls #teamkaptainkenny #girlslovetravel at Iceland

One last shot of Wales before I move on! Snowdonia is just sooo pretty ๐Ÿ˜ See more on my blog...link in bio. . I'm kinda having a love-hate relationship with winter at the moment. I love the Christmas vibes that London's got going on and the snow last week got me SO excited... But I seem to just be constantly ill in the winter. It's only the first week of December & already I've had two nasty cold/flus ๐Ÿคง . Any tips to get me through the winter over here?! . #gochasewaterfalls #girlslovetravel #teamkaptainkenny at Snowdon

Rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK ๐Ÿ˜ Not a bad spot for sunset! {See more about Wales on my blog. Link in bio} . Are you a sunrise person or a sunset person? Personally I love the quiet and stillness of a sunrise but I love my bed even more... So it's sunsets for me! . #gochasewaterfalls #teamkaptainkenny #girlslovetravel at Rhossili Beach

This was only a very quick photo stop on our road trip around Wales. I would have loved to stay longer and enjoy the view, maybe roam around, but my god it was FREEZING! โ„๏ธ {Read more about Wales on my blog} . Have you ever been somewhere it's just too cold to go exploring? . ...I think I need to toughen up for Norway - just a few weeks away now ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ . #gochasewaterfalls #teamkaptainkenny #girlslovetravel at Cregennan Lakes

This was as close as I got to the Peak of Mt Snowdon. From here, the walking became more like rock climbing and the ground was covered in snow and ice. My sister, Katie, wisely chose to head back. I, however, continued on for a little while. When Iโ€™d had a few minor slips and saw that everyone started putting on their cramp-onsโ€ฆI thought perhaps it was time to give up. So close..yet so far! . Apparently, the beautiful blue skies that day gave a lot of people too much confidence. Many people continued hiking all the way up to the peak without appropriate gear and it resulted in numerous helicopter rescues. So, good thing I turned around when I did, I guess! .

I just recently discovered that I have a few extra days off work at Christmas time...so I booked myself a few days in WALES!! . I did a little roadtrip around Wales almost a year ago with my sister and absolutely fell in love with it. The people are so friendly and their accents are just adorable (when comprehensible...๐Ÿ˜‰ I'm looking at you @lbeth91 ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰) Plus the scenery is phenomenal! . This shot was part way up the hike to Mt Snowdon - more on that soon. Blog post about my roadtrip around Wales is coming as soon as my brain is properly functioning again (seems I've got my *second* cold of the winter already...lucky me!) . #gochasewaterfalls #girlslovetravel #teamkaptainkenny at Snowdonia National Park

At the end of the Seven Sisters hike, you reach Beachy Heads. The white chalk cliffs are a bit dirtier and the grass not so green but I think it's got its own charm. This whole coast is just stunning ๐Ÿ˜ . Head to my blog to read more about Seven Sisters and other stunning walks around the UK. Link in bio. at Beachy Head

When I want to get away from London, I generally want to breathe in some fresh air and stroll around in big open spaces. I like to head to the good old English countryside: where a walk always ends at a pub. . So, with all this in mind, Iโ€™ve compiled a list of some of my favourite day trips and weekend getaway spots from London that involve a good hike. Here's one! See the link in my bio to read about them all. . The Seven Sisters is a series of white chalk cliffs on the south-eastern coast of England. Without a doubt, this is one of the most striking landscapes Iโ€™ve seen around the UK. The 21km hike from Seaford to Eastbourne follows the coast and takes you up on the cliff top, providing picture-perfect views all the way along. at Seven Sistors

Spent the evening with @phoebe_rose_robertson in the Flavour Gallery at @hoxtonbasement ... This little quirky, arty basement is full of scratch and sniff posters, neon lights, vibrating walls, music matched with perfume, edible cocktails and cocktails in spray form! Something for all the senses. A unique London experience - definitely recommend ๐Ÿ™Œ . In case you're wondering what on earth is going on in this pic... I'm awkwardly reaching up (on my tip toes - short girl problems!) to smell all the flavours on this colourful artwork by @anjaarts - every button released a different scent! .

Just an hour out of London ๐Ÿ˜ Read about this beautiful hiking spot on my blog - www.gochasewaterfalls.com link in bio ๐Ÿ™Œ at Box Hill, Surrey

How cute is this little river crossing? ๐Ÿ˜ The only downfall is that it's a one-way passage, so we had to wait for all the families with kids and dogs to get across before we could move... And the dogs kept falling off ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ . This was on a little hike just outside of London, near Box Hill. Click on the link in my bio to read more ๐Ÿ™Œ at Boxhill and the Stepping Stones

10 points if you can guess the British city that this pumba-like creation lives in! . I'll give you some hints: 1. This park is right next to a beautiful castle ๐Ÿฐ 2. The accent here is thick (and beautiful, if you ask me!) ๐Ÿ˜ 3. It's about 300km from London. ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™€๏ธ . Any guesses??!

Before I get into my countryside getaways across the UK - let me just say that London's not the only city worth visiting here. . Just an hour away on the train, Brighton sits on the South coast of England. It's colourful, lively and quirky! . In Brighton, you can spend your days roaming the boutique and vintage shops that fill the pedestrian walkways. You can stroll along the beach (albeit, pebble beach...but beach nonetheless) and have a play at a traditional British pier - full of arcade games and rides. You can eat at the hipster cafes or have fish and chips by the water. You can go absolutely nuts on a crazy night out. You can find live music all over the place. Brighton has something for everyone!! I absolutely love it. ๐Ÿ‘Œ . Do you have a favourite city in the UK? I think it'd be hard for me to pick just one, but for now it's probably still London โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง at Brighton

LONDON ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง I think London's great; itโ€™s diverse, lively and hectic. Most of the time, thatโ€™s what I love about this city. But itโ€™s also the thing I hate about it. Sometimes it exhausts me and I just need to get away from the chaos for a bit. . Of course, thereโ€™s an endless list of places you could go for a weekend getaway around Europe. But whatโ€™s often overlooked is that thereโ€™s plenty to do in the UK too. . When I want to get away from London, I generally want to breathe in some fresh air and stroll around in big open spaces. So I like to head to the good old English countryside: where a walk always ends at a pub. . I'm currently writing a blog post about my favourite day trips and weekend getaways into the English countryside - I'd love to know if you have any favourite spots around the UK? ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง . Obviously one spot that will feature is the Peak District - read about it on my blog. And stay tuned for more beautiful spots around the UK! at Sky Gardens

I'm the king of the castle! ๐Ÿฐ . This snap was from my half term trip to the Peak District but sadly, the holidays are no longer... I'm back in the classroom with my delightful little six year olds - and we're learning about castles! FUN FACT: there are 1500 castle sites in England. Castle 'sites' meaning that some of them are in fact completely ruined...but more than 800 have some remnants and around 300 are more or less still intact. Pretty impressive! .
