The afterglow

An afternoon in the summer London sun is second to none. Especially when spent with friends and good food.

Surviving my first WNBR

Taking part in my first ever World Naked Bike Ride was exhilarating, freezing and hilarious...

“The Leaving”

I know I'm not alone in still having nightmares about the Leaving. But I like to think my route to university was even more stressful than most in Ireland...

WNBR: Another one for the bucket list?
