Artists for oceans come to Gisborne

We have become a little obsessed about street art. Art is an incredibly strong medium and can contribute to amazing change in society and its relationship with the environment.

We particularly like the work of #nevercrew, the representation of mankind’s relationship with nature and the societal structure we function in, is very powerful.

The ability to enjoy such beautiful artwork in our urban environments is superb and its impact just very real.

The Best of Bath

Getting to Bath Somerset England

We’ve been lucky enough to spend time in Bath on four separate occasions. Our attraction to Bath was our  love of literature, history and architecture. 

It’s just a short hour and half train journey from London to Bath, which is a great way to travel. However, we’ve also travelled this journey by bus which is equally as comfortable but a slightly longer journey.

It’s so easy to get to and  such a compact wee city that no transport is required. Exploring on foot is easy and you can walk anywhere in 10 minutes. 

And so,  after all those trips we’ve picked our “Best of Bath” for you!
