August has been a pretty crazy month in general. It was finally safe for me to come back to the UK, which meant saying goodbye and packing things up in South Africa. I had to go through 11 days of hotel quarantine which was not ideal but not too stressful thankfully (you can read about my quarantine experience here), and I did a holiday with my best friend from uni around some places in the UK. Would anyone be keen to read about our adventures? Hint… there was a Harry Potter theme!! So, with an eventful month just past, and what I think will be an eventful month going forward, here are my august reflections, highlights and favourites!
The start of August also marks my 8th eco-friendly monthly challenge. I’ve really had such fun with these challenges, and I can’t wait to implement them more in my life when I move into my flat in the UK. This month, I struggled to think of an idea. I finally settled on trying to size down my carbon footprint, particularly with travel, so here it goes!
