Bouncing Back from Failure

So this post is not about where I've been, something I reviewed, travel, hotels or anything like that. This is a far more personal post that I've been wanting to write for a while but just haven't felt the motivation to do so. It's about bouncing back from failure. There are lots of lessons that can be taken from this post. It's helped me with some clarity first writing it, but it's also about looking on the positive side of things. It's about coming back from somewhere when you think you're at your lowest point - but actually you can bounce back from it.   So why I am bouncing back from failure? Back in 2015 I produced a winter…

Route 66 Hotels

One of the key ingredients of Route 66 is all the classic Hotels you can stay at. Of course there are many of the normal chains like Holiday Inn which you can stay at but that's not really the point to getting the full on Route 66 experience! There are a load of great Route 66 Hotels to stay at and by no means is this a full on comprehensive list but these are the ones that are worth it. Whilst some people like to just travel Route 66 and stop where they want, these hotels are the popular ones and with that I recommend that you book in advance. They only have a few rooms so it doesn't take…

The Muscle Food company gives many different options and food types to cater for different people and tastes. One of the products on offer that I love is their Prepped Pots range.

Not only are they really tasty they are also a brilliant source of healthy food. With them being all sub 400 calories they are really helping with my daily food intake.

My love for Ted Baker!

It's funny how tastes change over time with your working environment, your financial situation, your peer group. When I was younger I tried to shop at a few brands like Top Shop or River Island but as I've got older I've found more and more that those brands don't appeal to my taste or the style that i want. I'm now a Senior Manager in the business I work at and as such I'm working with Managing Directors, Owners and high level people. I bought myself a Tag Heuer watch about 18 months ago and now I'm adding to my love and my collection of Ted Baker. The love of Ted Baker started a few years ago now when I…

Route 66 Budget

If you've read my Tips and Tricks for Route 66 there is a section about the budget needed for your trip. However this doesn't touch on the details for the money you might spend. It's easy to spend loads and loads - but also do it on a bit of a budget as well. Although we did it the way below it's not a prescription of "how to do it" but just trying to give you an idea of what you might face on the road trip. This trip was taken in 2019 and all prices are based on these rates. You can find my master Route 66 information page here. This is going to be your biggest expense. We…
