The Case Of The Orangutans and Gibbons

My usual weekend trip the zoo recently left me feeling in awe, sad and amazed how animals communicate with each other. If anything it showed me animals have compassion. I know not every animal might have compassion or feelings. A spider or scorpion never would I have them down for emotions! Mammals and bees yes!It’s easy to see why apes and monkeys see smiles as threats. Maybe that’s why human’s evolutional smile is to be seen as not a threat?

One gibbon who caught my eye initially before I heard the screams did nothing. He was staying out of it. The other came running out to Continue reading “The Case Of The Orangutans and Gibbons”

Mid/Late Spring Zoo Photos Part 1

I’ve been keeping zoo photos to a minimum for a while. Mainly to avoid repeats, same old, does she ever take photos other than at the zoo. Sometimes!

Illa Fantasia Parc Aquatic And Weekend Catch Up

Do not wear cheeky bikini bottoms at water parks. Wedgies may occur on slides as you’re kicked off into the plunge pools. Just something I found out this weekend! Beach siesta

I hope you’re having a great week so far! The heat’s been turned up this week and I think that’s how it’s going to stay for the next 3-4 months. Absolutely fine with me!

This past weekend I completed my 3rd Spartan Race! The Super a 13-15km obstacle race, which once again left me contemplating if to run the Beast, Spartan’s 1/2 marathon again. 

I wasn’t sure if going to run. Spartan Race Espana weren’t putting on buses from Barcelona city centre as they have done in previous years and with no car or knowing Continue reading “Spartan Super Recap And Catch Up”

Weekend Catch Up and Randomness

Happy Wednesday!

If there’s one thing I learnt this past weekend there’s a reason why there are stylists. What might work and look good in the mirror when translated to a photo can leave you feeling WTF was I thinking. That was my outfit pick Sunday. My excuse it was a shower and go after a run with transport a motorbike. I need Cher’s infamous Clueless wardrobe  when a girl needs a little styling magic!

I hope you’re having a great week so far! I swear if it wasn’t for photos Continue reading “Weekend Catch Up and Randomness”
