Walking In A Winter Wonderland | Blogmas Day 10

Hey Guys,

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I think it is time to welcome back, for now at least, Stroll on Sunday.

I used to love writing these posts. Walking you through my days out using photography. It was always so fun.

So with the snow around, I thought it was the right time to bring back this style of post. I just hop you want it back as well, otherwise I apologise now.

Without further ado, welcome to the current Winter Wonderland which is the UK at the moment. Who would have thought we would have a December like this. It is usually February we have weather like this, but I love it so it doesn’t bother me. I say let it carry on!

I think it is safe to say I have become quite the poser these last few months. Oops. But oh well, I am just enjoying myself. I mean, why shouldn’t I?

Talking of enjoyment, I hope you enjoyed this post, because if you did, I might do it again next week for a special Christmas evening out we are having.

For now have a good evening and,

Happy Blogmas!

My Week In Suffolk | Photo Diary

Last week I was unable to post on this blog, and for that I have good reason. I was away on holiday. I was in Suffolk, specifically the coastal area of Suffolk, which for some reason was lacking in WiFi, so I was only able to use the internet for maybe 10 minutes a day, sometimes not even that.

If I’m honest, I wasn’t too keen on the cottage we stayed at, but the area we were staying in and the surrounding areas were great and the locals were so helpful and welcoming. Let’s just say, we had quite the week.

Here is an overview of what my parents and I did over the week:

Day 1: Travel and Fish and Chips in Lowestoft

After a six hour drive, we left our bags and cases in the cottage, and went looking for a supermarket to stock up for the week, as well as finding a place which sold Fish and Chips, and in an area where we could sit by the sea. We ended up finding Lowestoft, a very busy area with a lot going on. There was a lot of hustle and bustle, and not the place to relax when you are tired.

Day 2: Dunwhich Heath and Village

Owned by the National Trust, Dunwich Heath is an area filled with a lot of walk ways and gorgeous views, as well as a shingle beach at the bottom of the cliff. Actually, little know fact, Dunwich is known as Britain’s Atlantis, because of most of it, being underwater now. BAM! Who says this blog isn’t educational?

Day 3: The greatest Zoo I have ever been too – Africa Alive!

If you want to be up, close and personal with the animals. This the place to go. I have never seen a zoo so clean and the animals so well looked after. One of the best places I have ever visited. Not even an exaggeration. It made the entire holiday for me. Hands down!

Day 4 and 6: Visiting Southwold

(visited twice because it was lovely there)

Southwold was an interestingly wonderful little seaside town. We spent two whole days there, where we explored the town (having my stepdad splash the cash at Joules),  the beach as well as the infamous pier and beach huts.

Day 5: Visiting Aldeburgh

Finally, we have Aldeburgh, a town I was pronouncing wrong the entire trip. Someone had to correct me on that. Oops! Anyway, here we walked across yet another shingle beach, came across the AMAZING and UNFORGETTABLE work of Elizabeth Garret Anderson, someone everyone should familiarise themselves with, and even wrote our names on a pebble for artistic effect.

Although, yes we did complain more than we should have, some of the days out were actually rather good and surprisingly, there were some wonderful little hidden gems that I would recommend to anyone thinking about heading up to the Suffolk Coast in the future.

Like they say, there is always a silver lining, even in the darkness there is light, and gees I sound so cliché right now.  

Hope you all had a great week.

The Time To Run Wild And Free!

How are we already in November?

Before we know it, it will be Christmas, then the New Year, and then well into 2017, without even knowing where the time has gone.

I will tell you what though, Autumn is well under way. It is most definitely the right time to find yourself outside, exploring. I can’t imagine a better season to find yourself stuck in. It’s no too warm (which is important), and it’s not too cold, and the scenery is just perfect.

Leaves of all colours and sizes falling all around you,  whilst you walk, or if you prefer, run through. Let your inner child be wild. Seriously, how could you possibly resist?

Just look at this beauty, and tell me you can:

Convinced?

I thought so.

Get yourself out there. Enjoy Autumn. Be adventurous. Be inspired!

What’s your favourite season, and why?

Life On The Right Track

stroll

I am really excited about today’s Stroll on Sunday, because it was so good, but I am finding it difficult to find the right words to describe and tell you guys about it within the space of just one post. I will have to try. This is a journey you shouldn’t miss.

We basically did a day of traveling around, from the car to a train station, to getting on a steam train, to getting off to eat, then back on again, to then get back in a car to go home. I sure am tired after all of that. Tired in a good way though. I say that, as it was just a day filled with having a laugh, and exploring the train world. I have been on trains about three times in my life, but I can’t really remember those other two journeys I have taken, although I know one was in Austria. However, I think I am likely to remember this one for a long time, and definitely for the right reasons.

The photos above are the before shots which I took whilst waiting for the train to come into the station. Just standing there was a task because it was so warm, but I shouldn’t complain, not yet anyway, as the day was deemed to just keep getting warmer as the hours went on. Thankfully, I didn’t let that stand in my way. Not one bit.

I do have to say though, it is a very British thing to moan about the weather, whether it is hot or cold, we will always find a reason to moan. I am not sure why we do it, but it must give us some sort of satisfaction.

If you couldn’t tell, the two photos above are me trying to be artistic with my photography. I am trying to improve on how I take photos and seeing beauty and creativity from anything, even if it is my mother’s hands holding the brochure for the railways station, or different people boarding the train.

It was my stepdads idea for me to quickly run to get this picture. If it wasn’t for him, I probably wouldn’t have gotten the shot, which incidentally is my favourite from today. A round of applause to Ivan there for that one.

 

On the return journey we managed to nab a seat in a separate carriage. One where you can shut the door. I tell you now, it feels like you are on the train to Hogwarts, or at the very least someone of importance. Either way, it is such an amazing feeling.

Oh and yeah, it was my mom’s birthday as well. She had a great day, and that is all that matters to me. I am so glad today was such a success. Love you mom and I hope you enjoy your Gluten Free cake!
