Winter Wanderland

Excuse the terrible titular pun, but I needed to find a way to express my ardour for the weather we’ve been having here in the UK for the last couple of days. Frosty and frozen and foggy and all sorts of delightful light have been taking place, and I’ve been making the most of the […]

Postcards from the Countryside

I’m fortunate enough to live in a relatively rural area, which I love, and to be honest I’ve been appreciating it a lot more since I’ve started commuting into London everyday. These photos are from a sunset country walk around my hometown the other day, and then from a wonderful weekend trip to visit a friend […]

Travels 2016: Wellington

Wellington was our last stop on New Zealand’s North Island, and asides from being a very small capital with only just more than 200,000 residents, we found it to be a very cool, relaxed and fun city. In our two days we did a walking tour of the city, took the cable car from Lambton […]

Travels 2016: Cairns & Cape Tribulation

Ah Cairns, I have such happy memories of you.

Travels 2016: Brisbane & the Gold Coast

Alas, I’m afraid to say that my dreams of learning to surf from a gorgeous Aussie instructor, and then miraculously discovering that I’m some kind of surfing prodigy – something like my namesake Bethany Hamilton – were well and truly foiled in Surfer’s Paradise. And by that I mean that we never got to live […]
