Landy Travels! Twatt!

Hi everyone! I'd like to apologise for not posting in a while, I have been planning some great new content and gathering props and photos and everything I need. Ive also got a few new segments I would actually like to my blog. I have always loved cars and trucks etc and when I was on a recent holiday in Orkney I started taking photos of landy and I thought because I love travelling and trucks I thought it would make a bit of a diverse thing for me to make a segment on within my blog!
Now I know some of you might not like trucks and landies, so for you  I aim to travel all around the UK and maybe abroad, to attractions and places and I will be sharing Landies footsteps all around!

 I've recently passed my driving test so now I'm able to travel so much more freely. I recently went on holiday to Orkney with my family as we do every year. However this year we had a few new additions! 

We took my dogs and they loved it! Anyway, after watching Top Gear years ago I'd always wanted to find the Twatt sign; you ever saw the episode on rudest place names in the UK? Well this one was harder to find than any of us thought.. 
The day we decided to go out and find this sign we actually spent over half of the day driving in and out of Twatt from every road we could find. You see, apparently tourists like to steal these Twatt signs; probably just because they saw them on Top Gear. At the end of the day though, what are you going you do with a sign that big?! Anyway, we stopped and asked several people, I think one lady thought I was insulting her but oh well :')  
When the day was coming to an end, we headed back o our cottage and called it a day, I took to Facebook to ask everyone where exactly was there a sign left? Many local replied with pinpoints or locations on Google Maps which made things so much easier - So thanks to you bunch!




So the next day we set back off.. We may have ended up following someone for guidance but we still got there! :') Me and Will jumped straight out and was pulling faces and doing stupid poses - I'm afraid those photos are too embarrassing to release but I'm sure you get the jist haha. Ohhh and that's Will by the way, You might see him more around here if he doesnt get too annoyed with the cameras!

We was there a while as you may have guessed.. Guess what?! The sign is still there! We didn't steal it, so more tourists can enjoy it - If you get the chance to see this sign I would love to see the photos!

We spent about ten days in Orkney, my nanny was born in Orkney so we go up every year to walk in her footsteps and to see the family. I have a fair few photos of her at Happy Valley, that's where I am in the photo above. Probably one of my favourite places there, the other is a beach by the barriers that didnt have any waves and its the most beautiful shade of turquoise like the see in Tenerife.. All thats missing is the sun and it would be brilliant if the wind stopped too, because that is so cold blowing n your face it really hurts the brows!

  7. It think you sharing trucks and cars would make for a unique spin on a blog! I'm actually into cars myself, my husband is in the auto industry, so I naturally took a liking to it. Thanks for sharing and I hope you're having a great day so far!
