Hip update


So it has been just over 8 weeks since I had a hip operation, you can find out more about that here. I thought today I'd just give an update on how it has gone and how I am recovering. 

My hip is a lot better, I no longer need crutches and have had a physio to make my legs stronger again, being a sporty girl I have definitely noticed muscle loss from my legs, the struggle of lifting my right leg up now is reallll... luckily it's one of the exercises my physio gave me to do to strengthen my legs. I can drive and I am back at work which is good. 

This last week I have been able to start jogging on the treadmill and able to do lunges and squat walks. I can pretty much do most things no without pain, bending down and over still is slightly sore but I think it just needs to fully heal so that should come soon, 

Now...badminton. As some of may have read from my hobby post, my main hobby is Badminton and I play competitively. Not being able to play has been extremely hard and I miss playing immensely, I think without realising it I use badminton to destress, I have definitely struggled not playing. I am hoping I can be back playing by December but I'm not sure if I'm pushing it there! 

Hopefully when I start to run properly again I won't have any issues and the operation will have been a success! 

Thanks for reading

My Travel Bucket list!


Now, where should I start with my Travel bucket list?! Today I will give you my top 10 places I would love to visit. 

1) New York 
I have been wanting to visit NYC for years and years now but still haven't had the chance. I'd love to see the Empire State Building and have dinner in a fancy restaurant looking at the statue. If I got the chance to go to New York I would try to go to Watkins Glen, it's like a waterfall, its so pretty. Also the amount of restaurants and food places I have on my notes on my phone where I would love to try is crazy!

2) Australia 
Isn't Australia on everyones bucket list?! As much as I love to spend some in Australia I feel like the animals out there would scare the #&^% out of me!! I would love to see the Great Barrier Reef as well as go to Whitsunday Island. The pictures look soo beautiful, with perfectly blue seas and soft sand! Definitely somewhere I would love to visit. 

3) Maldives 
The Maldives looks such a relaxing place, with no one around just the sounds of sea and gentle winds. When I got with my boyfriend a couple of years ago he promised he would take me here for my 30th birthday... only 10 years to get saving babes!! 

4) Virgin Islands 
Trunk bay is in the Virgin Islands, the beach looks stunning and I can definitely see myself sunbathing on this beach all day. 

5) Hawaii 
Na Pali Coast Waterfall in Hawaii looks so amazing, Like all of these places I'd love to go, mainly for the memories and to say I visited there and seen in real life how amazing it was.

6) Iceland
Iceland has been on my list of places to go for a couple of years now also, I'd love to do the Blue Lagoon as it looks so much fun. Another place out there is the waterfall of gods, google this right now and tell me that doesn't look unbelievable!!! I would dream to visit somewhere like this. 

7) Thailand 
Krabi Island in Thailand looks so colourful! With the lovely blue sea to the white sand and then bright green trees in the sea. The water looks so clear and beautiful. 

8) Greece
Mykonos is also another place that has been on my list for a while now too, a few people on my Instagram have posted pictures from here and they look as if they were taken professionally! Melissani Cave is also in Greece, this place looks insane!!

9) Phillipines 
Corn Island and Kawasan Falls Cebu both look crazy!! Again the sea looks so blue and clear. I'd love to get a little boat and paddle around taking in the amazing views. 

10) Hidden beach Marieta Islands Mexico
This hidden beach in Mexico looks unreal!! The beach is covered by cave then it just a like a opening over the top! Great describing!! Check out this place if you haven't as its defo one to put on your bucket list!

Are any of these places on your bucket list? Let me know!
