I’ve just typed laptop into my Google photos account and this is the result. Why’s this important? Well some of the photos of my laptop above (I realise there are a few duplicates) I took whilst travelling the world, but in each photo, I was working. I have decided to document places that I’ve opened my laptop and worked remotely,…

As part of Liverpool Music Week, Loved Ones (@wearelovedones) supported the London-based band Gengahr at the Magnet on Hardman Street on Saturday evening. Loved Ones formed on the Wirral a few years ago and have since performed in various locations throughout the UK and Europe. Their lineup consists of Nik Glover (Guitar/vocals), Ben Shooter (Piano/vocals), Dan Taylor (drums) and Richard…

On a recent trip to California I ventured into Ventura, a small surfer’s town just north of Los Angeles. Aside from being quintessentially surf-orientated (some of California’s best surf breaks are within a few miles), Ventura is also home to my favourite company in the world, Patagonia. I realise this is a bold statement, but there are fewer companies in…

Since I began visiting different countries, I have seen and been lucky enough to spend time with thousands people with very different lives to my own. They’ve often had less than I have, often had more. So what does this mean? It has given me perspective. I am fully aware of the opportunity I was given at birth to live…

In my 36 years on this earth I have had numerous jobs. Since my first paper-round at aged 11, I have experienced earning money in some varied and interesting means. I’ve approached each role with the same attitude, work hard and go over and above what is required of me. From the chicken farm to MacDonalds, vacuum cleaner salesman to…

I instantly regretted pickled fish over breakfast. After a quick transfer of luggage to our new hotel, we visited the imposing Northern Light Cathedral, Alta. This spiralling titanium-clad building was opened in 2013 and perfectly represents the Northern Lights inside and out. From the outside, the titanium tiles reflect whatever colours are in the sky, the spiralling concrete base curls…

I had an early flight to catch to Oslo, then a connecting flight north to Alta. I had been informed by the hotel receptionist that the airport bus left every 10 minutes, but I wandered out to the bus stop to realise that it didn't, and I would have to wait 20 minutes that I could've spent in bed. Determined…

A bus was waiting for us outside the hotel and John, our American expat guide from North Adventures, explained a little about what our afternoon and evening held in store. Apparently dog sledding can be undertaken throughout the year but in summer, sleds with suspension are used and the pace is far slower, but a unique experience nonetheless. We drove…

The day after my final day on the slopes of Chamonix, I drove to Calais and got the Eurotunnel back to the UK. I'd planned on staying longer in the Alps but had been invited by the Norwegian Tourism Board on a FAM trip to the north of Norway. Due to flight limitations, I was asked if I could fly…

As previously discussed, it’s tempting to take on every single role within a business, certainly when you’re first starting out. I think it’s a good idea to have a handle on each aspect of your business in the first instance because it prepares you for when you come round to then outsourcing different elements. There’s no doubt about it, having…
