Hi, Hello and Welcome…
I am Robbo (she/her) and I am a Blogger, Podcaster, CrossFitter, Roller Derby player (and coach), and this is my blog.
I started blogging in 2010 for my Earthwatch expedition to Nova Scotia, Canada – Really this started as a travel blog more than a ‘everyday update’ kind of blog, but over the years it has developed and grown a mind of its own into what it is today, which is as titled MY ‘life in progress’.
I’ve always loved to write, from school poetry competitions, to short stories, heck I even have a book (which I will likely NEVER complete) that I’ve been writing since my undergrad, which I work on whenever I get five minutes inspiration.
My favourite areas to write about are Travel, Roller Derby, Fitness training or general life… I think that just about explains the blog but now to explain a little bit more about me.
I live in the North East of England, in a little place called Durham. I work full-time and spend my free time binging on Netflix, playing Roller Derby for Durham and I also make up part of the coaching team for the league. I now am an avid Crossfitter and although I enjoy a good WOD (workout of the day) I love to lift heavy barbells, in particular I love Olympic lifts and have a penchant for Powerlifting.
I love to travel and in recent years have made it a mission to cycle Europe – one country at a time, so be sure to check out my updates on those adventures!
