• Junkyard Golf, Leeds


    I live 35 miles away from Leeds and to say I live relatively close, I don’t spend nearly enough time there. Throughout my teenage years I practically lived in Leeds on a weekend and I still adore the city as much as I did then. I try and drag the husband there every couple of…

    Leeds // Absurd Bird and Escape Hunt: Our Finest Hour


    Hello friends! Today I’m sharing some snapshots from a leisurely day spent in Leeds with the husband. As usual, we parked at Hornbeam Park (Harrogate) and got the train into Leeds. At £8 for a return it just makes sense – We both hate driving in big cities and parking in one is never much…

  • It’s been two years since I came home from my travels…


    Today marks two years since I arrived home from my travels around Australia and Thailand. We had a gruelling journey from Thailand to Heathrow (we almost missed our connection into Abu Dhabi due to rain in Bangkok) then we had to hang around at Kings Cross for a few hours before catching a train back up…
