Tregardock beach, 2018

Tregardock beach, 2018

I read a lot of travel blogs, and one thing you come to realise is that every blogger has certain places they love, that they return to over and over and over again. One of those places for me is Tregardock beach. If you’ve read a few posts on this blog, you may have come across some glorious Tregardock photos. This beach is gorgeous. I took a host of photos at Tregardock last year, as I managed to visit five…

Ninety-seven photos from the Seychelles

Ninety-seven photos from the Seychelles

It’s interesting to look back, months after the fact, and see which images and words I chose to share about a place. I was looking through my Seychelles photos and realised that I’d shared a pitiful number of them, with most of them only there to accompany blogs about the islands we visited or the overall nature of paradise. Don’t get me wrong, words matter too. This is a blog, not an Instagram page (though I do have one of…

Magic mountains

Magic mountains

Mountains are just extremely majestic. I feel like that’s as close to a fact as an opinion can ever be. When you’re just a tiny human and you stand next to a colossal hunk of rock that makes you an ant at its feet, it’s hard not to be wowed. Snow-covered mountains are even more magical, because they possess all the awesome qualities of your average mountain except instead of being dull grey and covered in dirt they are bright…

13th January, Brockwell Park, London

13th January, Brockwell Park, London

You can do almost anything in London. There’s a 24-hour bagel shop, a different West End show for every day of the week and numerous restaurants serving the kind of freakshakes that might stop your heart. When people talk about why they love London, they talk about the food, the theatre, the mass of people to meet and the never-ending list of things to do. There are art galleries and flower markets and even a museum filled with body parts…

Christmas in Cornwall: walking, swimming, cake and more walking

Christmas in Cornwall: walking, swimming, cake and more walking

Weekend city breaks suit me because 2-3 days of hardcore tourism is probably my ideal amount of city exploration to do in one stretch. For longer trips, I definitely prefer getting out into nature and doing something active. I – and probably many others – don’t have the stamina for weeks of walking around for hours every day, visiting multiple museums and churches and often spending money all the time. Even though travelling is fun and exciting, it can also…

My best photos of 2018

My best photos of 2018

Learning how to use a camera has been one of the best things about this year. My parents bought me a camera for Christmas last year, and as 2018 progressed, I found myself using it more and more. Case in point: two weeks in Australia left me with around 500 photographs, whereas, a mere six months later, a week in the Seychelles saw me walk away with almost 3000 pictures to sift through. I’ve started viewing places – both abroad…

27th December, Cornwall, UK

27th December, Cornwall, UK

I’ve already written a whole blog about Tregardock beach. It’s probably totally unnecessary to write another one, and yet, I don’t care. Too beautiful to not share the amazing afternoon we spent on this beach today. In a year that took me from the UK to Australia to the south of France to the Seychelles, this beach is without a doubt my favourite spot of 2018. Technically, I first visited Tregardock during the summer of 2017, but I feel that…

What happened in Kraków

What happened in Kraków

After Wrocław we took the train to Kraków. Kraków was cold. That did mean, however, that the clouds cleared and snow started to fall.   I don’t always like snow. I like snow when you can ski on it, or have the time to make a snowman and have a snowball fight, followed by an indoor hot chocolate to warm up. Snow when you have to go to work is a whole different snowball game (I’m so lame, I’m sorry). Especially in…

Tregardock beach, Cornwall

Tregardock beach, Cornwall

I haven’t written anything about Cornwall yet. This is a huge tragedy. Due to Jake’s family having a place near Bodmin moor, we’ve popped down to Cornwall maybe five or so times this year. When I say popped down, I mean it. Last Christmas we spent five hours driving there and five hours back for only one night of West Country family time. Is it family or the prospect of pasties and clotted cream that made this appealing? Who can…

Looking up: Prague’s St Vitus Cathedral

Looking up: Prague’s St Vitus Cathedral

St Vitus Cathedral is an impressive structure. It’s not exactly ground-breaking that I would suggest you visit here, given that it’s part of the castle complex that tops every ‘what to do in Prague’ list. It’s full name is The Metropolitan Cathedral of Saints Vitus, Wenceslaus and Adalbert, so bum deal for Wenceslaus and Adalbert whose names get dropped most of the time (though with a name like Wenceslaus, he’s probably used to it). This is a massive Gothic cathedral,…
