10 things to do with your extra hour 

10 things to do with your extra hour 

We are so lucky as we gain an extra hour tomorrow, 25 October from 2:00 am. Here are some ideas of what to do with that extra hour 🙂

  1. Catch up on sleep. Sometimes a lie in is a luxury and much needed!
  2. Read a book! I just read I am Malala and would highly recommend it. 
  3. Do a good deed. Sign up for Curry for Change and plan a curry night, afternoon tea or cocktail party to raise money to help change the lives of rural families in Africa and Asia who suffer from hunger.
  4. Foster an elephant in Kenya from the  David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and help save the lives of elephants and support a fantastic cause. This makes a great gift for someone too.
  5. Alternatively, watch the Gardeners of Eden on Netflix UK or purchase it from iTunes. This was produced by Kristin Davis
  6.  Make a curry! Check out my blog posts for recipes.
  7. Go for a walk in the park and get some fresh air while admiring the beautiful change in season. Autumn is such a wonderful time.
  8. Do some Diwali or Christmas shopping or make your lists. (Yes I said the C word).
  9. Meditate – it does wonders and brings so much calmness.
  10. Start a new TV series or catch up on ones you have missed. My favourites at the moment are The Apprentice and Homeland. Any other TV show recommendations would be good!

What will you be doing with your extra hour? Do tell!

Hi, I’m Binny – a writer, dreamer, serial wanderluster and travel addict. I am originally from Kenya but now live in London. I set up this blog to share my experiences eating out as well as travelling.

I love packing my bags and going off on adventures as one of the best things about travelling is the ability to just get lost in it. To set aside the maps and itineraries and just see where the road takes you, learning and evolving and living in the moment along the way.

It’s my goal to get swept off my feet as often as possible.
