Lead up to a Big Announcement…

The idea of getting on a plane on my own, making a transfer in an unknown place and then landing somewhere knew scared the hell out of me. The whole thing is alien to me and the fact that I did a responsible adult thing like other people without being awkward or being super duper nervous, impresses me greatly. (This is coming from the person … Continue reading Lead up to a Big Announcement…

Travel Bug #1: Toronto

This post is a throwback to my time in toronto written in 2015… enjoy! “Urban sprawl” is a predictable description for the bulk of major cities whether you go around the globe. The vivacious undertone that the description should possessive is snuffed out by the disdained manor the two words are delivered with.

In these series of photos I … Continue reading Photography Tips #8: Golden Landscapes

Snapshots #5: Break from the Bubble

Aberystwyth is often portrayed as a Bubble, being a small community with all your needs on the edge of the world, a windy way from any larger towns or cities that are inland. Luckily for me I took a break and went over to see my parents in the beautiful Normandy. After posting about it before as my summer holiday, Normandy’s beauty only increases with … Continue reading Snapshots #5: Break from the Bubble
