Through the tunnel we go.
If you walk around the island you can find so many relics of the poison gas days. I swear to you in one of the spots I heard footsteps that weren’t my own despite no one else being there and no other reasonable explanation. I wasn’t scared, but it did catch me off guard.
Do you believe in spirits or residual energy at all? (Sorry if this is too *woooo* for some of my Instagram fam out there. I find the paranormal really fascinating).
💊 To take the pill or not to take the pill?
I’ve been on the birth control pill since I was 16, with only 2 breaks - the latest one started last Christmas.
Both times my body was literally screaming at me to stop taking it. 🤯 It felt like every cell in me was getting saturated with these “hormones” (in reality they’re enduring disruptors) and I started rejecting them. Funnily enough, one of my closest friends started feeling the same way at the same time so we both went through the transition together.
Back in the 50’s or so, research was underway on the use of synthetic hormones, at a time when natural female hormones were barely understood. 💉 The health implications were not comprehended. Only the fact that pregnancy could be averted was acknowledged. Even though we know so much more of the negatives now, it’s all brushed under the rug, and the anti-fertility impacts are applauded for good reason, but at what cost to a woman’s health?
💊 Birth control pills interfere with a woman’s key function - her ability to have natural hormonal production - stealing her inherent and necessary rhythms, and making her infertile, by substituting manufactured chemical mimics for her real hormones.
The consequences of the pill can be very grave. Some women develop life threatening blood clots, become depressed or even suicidal. But some potential effects can take years to manifest, including IBS, autoimmune diseases, heart disease, diabetes poor vaginal health and more. Loss of essential natural hormones caused by long-term use of contraceptive synthetic hormones can mean loss of health itself.
When I last went to the doctors she said that the first pill I was on for 10 years straight is now illegal in the UK due to too many problems😱, so why are we still taking something that we still know so little about? I stayed on it for so long due to peace of mind regarding pregnancy and also for my acne.
Now I’m determined to know more about my cycle and @naturalcycles has been a great app to use. It predicts my period based on my temperature and tells me when it’s safe to have unprotected sex.
🤔What are your thoughts on this subject?
A pochi chilometri da Siena si trova l’abbazia di San Galgano, uno dei luoghi più affascinanti della Toscana.
Ha una storia molto particolate, è il sito dove si trova la famosa spada nella roccia di San Galgano.
Il complesso è formato dall'eremo di Monte Siepi e da quest'imponente abbazia cistercense ormai completamente in rovina.
Man mano che si percorre il viale di cipressi infatti, ci si accorge che la sagoma quasi intatta delle mura, in realtà non ha il tetto. Quando l'edificio andò in declino il tetto in piombo fu venduto.
La Toscana è una terra meravigliosa, se vi capita di essere da queste parti non perdetevi questa bellezza.
A few kilometers from Siena is the abbey of San Galgano, one of the most fascinating places in Tuscany.
It has a very particular history, it is the site where the famous sword in the rock of San Galgano is located. The complex is formed by the hermitage of Monte Siepi and by this imposing Cistercian abbey now completely in ruins.
As you walk along the avenue of cypresses, in fact, you realize that the almost intact shape of the walls does not actually have a roof. When the building declined the lead roof was sold.
Tuscany is a wonderful land, if you happen to be around here don't miss this beauty.

| First trip out of London in 4+ months, and man was it needed. There’s only so long you can look at the same four walls of a tiny flat.
Our journey was made safely with face masks, hand sanitiser, and social distance and we travelled off peak to avoid crowds. Guildford was the destination and in the middle of it is a beautiful castle with great views of the city centre. Unfortunately, the castle was closed but tbh, I was just happy for a change of scenery.
🥳Today is the day!!
I’m excited to finally announce I’m launching my blog today. I’ve had a lot of fun building my website, and I’ve learned A LOT of what goes into building them (which I love!) and that there's MUCH MUCH more to blogging than just writing some stuff and posting it (which is 100% what I thought a few months ago🤣)
✨I am sharing my adventures from the last two years of backpacking the world, my current adventures that I’m up to here in Australia, and all of the tip, tricks, and resources I’ve learned along the way to help YOU on your own travel adventures.
✨I was able to travel for 12 months to 20 countries without working, all while exploring, eating, drinking, and seeing alllll the sights for less than I would spend at home on bills and regular life.
✨I want to share with you the must-sees, how to go about doing things, and my exact budget breakdown for each country visited. Along with everything I’ve learned along the way that I wish I knew years ago when it comes to traveling. There are actually a lot of ways to travel for even cheaper than I did, and even FREE if you’re up for it!
✨Travel really has never been easier, and it’s way more affordable than most realize! My goal is to help you see more of this beautiful world.
✨I don’t have anything published yet, but will start tomorrow! So the links will not work at first ♥ Let me know what you think of my site! XO - LINK IN THE BIO
