Anxious Anxiety Part One

I might have touched on this topic before however if I haven’t I’ll discuss it now. I suffer from anxiety, mainly social and large crowd anxiety (particularly large crowds of small children; nothing puts me into a panic more than a pack of unruly, shouting children). I have developed coping methods for my anxiety as I travel a lot and need to make sure I can cope with packed airports, trains, buses etc. Read on if you want to know more about how I cope on a daily basis with anxiety.

Exploring Arran – Part Two

After a wonderful night’s sleep in twin beds! (This is the only room the hotel had left for a reasonable price!) we awoke and a wonderful breakfast at The Corrie Hotel.

This was soon rectified with a lovely vegetarian breakfast and we were soon on our way to explore the rest of Arran!

I just have to hop in my car and drive to explore some of the most stunning scenery in the UK. With this in mind last weekend my boyfriend and I hopped in the car and took a ferry over to the Isle of Arran.
