Hey! My name is Coralie and I am so happy that you found your way here to this little corner of the internet! Here’s a little bit about me. I’m a 50-something mum to a rather fab teenage boy, a blogger, photographer and foodie lucky enough to have settled in glorious North Yorkshire (after moving house more than 30 times, so far…) I’m an expert at packing (houses and suitcases) and I simply LOVE to travel to new destinations.
I was blessed to grow up living in Jersey (only tourists say ‘on Jersey’!!) and I returned there when my son was little. Sadly, life throws a few curved balls and post separation I moved with the teen to Yorkshire to start afresh. It was a wrench to leave my favourite beaches behind, but Yorkshire countryside is a BIG compensation.
WHAT INSPIRED THE BLOG?
I started blogging as a much-needed creative antidote to a demanding corporate day job. I wanted an outlet to share my travel adventures and to helpand inspire other women to travel adventurously in midlife.
How fast they grow! It’s hard sometimes to believe he’s a teenager now (and towering above me).“I am going to keep having fun every day I have left, because there is no other way of life. You just have to decide whether you are a Tigger or an Eeyore”
I like to create content that appeals to busy women in midlife, inspiring them to try new travel experiences that make them feel good about life, with a few thought-provoking posts thrown in for good measure. That’s just how I roll…
WORKING WITH ME
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME
The teenage boy and I live in a higgledy-piggledy 100-year-old cottage, in beautiful Harrogate, with our two very vocal cats, Pook and Ganymede
My favourite colours are turquoise, cobalt and lime.
I love English weather and all the seasons, crisp white linens, woolly jumpers, flip-flops and scarves.
Ornaments are my enemy (they require dusting and life is too short…)
I’m a church bell-ringer so if you’re in Harrogate on a Sunday you might hear me even if you can’t see me!
While I have cats, I would dearly love a dog.
I remember most of the Dutch I learned in the Netherlands, but my French and German are pretty rusty now.
Did you guess? I like shiny, sparkly things and a glass (or two) of fizz.
Marmite is truly the nectar of the gods but tomato ketchup is the food of the devil.
Thanks for stopping by!
