Get Snappy 1: London

Get Snappy 1: London

Today is an exciting day. So far my plans are to: lie on my sofa, write, play Mario Kart, read and maybe go out and photograph the sunset if it looks good. Despite this relaxed Sunday, it’s still an exciting day. This is because I’m debuting a new blog feature. Yay! Throughout this year, I’ll be posting a weekly photo feature on Sundays. I hope this will encourage me to take my camera out with me more often and will…

2018 goals review and 2019 plans

2018 goals review and 2019 plans

It will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that I am type-A. I am a planner. I am the organiser. I like lists and goals and ticking things off. This organisation tends not to extend to the management of my home – I am still only prompted to do my washing when I run out of underwear – but, in general, I like to keep my life and plans under control. If you met my parents, you’d…

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…

How to pose for photos

How to pose for photos

When you go somewhere new and exciting, you tend to take photographs. Some of these photos might be merely of the landscape, but, in order to prove that you were, you know, right there, it’s pretty common to take a snap or two of you in front of said landmark or vista, despite the fact that anyone looking at these photos has probably seen plenty of your face and very little of whatever area you were exploring. As you take…
