Before I get into it, I have no idea how this post and my research into it even came about. As much as I am going to include information, I don’t want it to be a big ol’ dump but I also don’t want to make too much light of a serious topic. A few nights ago during a conversation with my mother, I remembered that during all of my school years (age 5, not including nursery up to age 15.) (I do know the average age of leaving school in the U.K. is 16 but I left a year and a half early due to medical issues) I only had one Sexual Education class which consisted of a dildo being presented ready to have a condom put on it but then one of my classmates proceeding to lob it at the teacher. The end.
This got me thinking about my follower’s experience with Sex Ed. Did they have regular classes? Did they cover everything you thought should be covered? I’m not a teacher but I can respect the fact that teaching a class of children about sex isn’t going to be a walk in the park, but I do think more should be done, especially after seeing the results I received on my pictured Twitter & Instagram poll.

So at the start of April, our first ever joint travel expedition took place and we settled on Austria. I put the idea out there when I saw the most beautiful photo of Fortress Hohensalzburg on Google (perhaps the most well-known feature of Salzburg.) Becky agreed that we definitely needed to visit. We spent two days in Salzburg and then travelled via train to Vienna, where we spent three days. We didn’t know how we were going to present all the photos we both took but we finally decided on splitting them between the two cities. So, in this first post, we hope you enjoy Salzburg through our eyes and we both agree when we say we would definitely recommend this city – it really is as beautiful as it looks.

So before we actually show you our generic tourist-esque photos from out trip to Austria (and there’s a lot) I decided to give you a teaser featuring my favourite things in the world, dogs! And yes, I’m one of those annoying people that shout ‘DOG!’ whenever I see one. These are some quick snaps I took of the ones we saw during our trip and an added extra. Let me know if you have dogs in the comments and if so, tell me a bit about them! For now, I hope you like these photos!

You may or may not remember us but we are back this time, I promise. I suppose I haven’t been updating because I have not read very much this year compared to 2017. I have so far only read 25 books out of my goal of 50. I’m disappointed with myself but at the same time, I don’t want to read just for the sake of it. However, out of the few books I’ve read, I have found some new favourites so I’m going to attempt the mid-year book tag! We are also going to be blogging about our joint trip to Austria in April so stay tuned for that and thank you for sticking with us! Continue reading “Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag”
So we’ve almost come to the end of February and after January decided to go on longer than a DFS sale, flying through this month has shook me. But for now, here are some more bloggers that I’ve been loving recently. Nothing inspires me more in the blogging community more than other bloggers and as I’ve said already, this is the year that we should all support each other! Continue reading “Bloggers I’m Currently Loving Part III”
Welcome to part II of the bloggers who I am obsessed with at the moment. I’ll just go ahead and say that bloggers are already smashing it in 2018 and I want to do whatever I can to promote them and congratulate their hard work because let’s face it, this game isn’t easy. In slightly unrelated news, you may have noticed that we now have our own domain name! We finally made this leap and now I can’t stop staring at it. I don’t miss the ‘wordpress.com’ at all. Anyway, back to the important people who have inspired me, made me laugh and even made me cry recently. Continue reading “Bloggers I’m Currently Loving Part II”
So today, January 15th, is what is officially known as Blue Monday – believed to be the most depressing day of the year. However, this can sometimes be used by the marketing bigwigs in the travel or sales industry to get a bit of money in the till. However, it also allows charities such as Mental Health UK to raise awareness for people who live with depression every day of the year. Becky and I have decided to do our bit by recommending some books that could benefit you, not just today, but any day when you’re feeling a bit shitty.
“Depression is a dark cloud passing across the sky, but – if that is the metaphor – you are the sky. You were there before it. And a cloud can’t exist without the sky, but the sky can exist without the cloud.”
– Matt Haig

Welcome to a new series we are starting at Two Book Thieves! We will be visiting and featuring independent bookshops around the U.K. (obviously over a period of time.) Becky and I both live in a big city and our first stop to buy books, other than online, is in mainstream shops such as Waterstones and WHSmith. However, we also realise that independent book shops do exist (albeit not a lot in my area) and they deserve a lot more credit and support and that is what we aim to do with this series. So without further ado, here is the first Independent Book Shop on our list! Continue reading “Independent Book Shop Series // Cover to Cover”
