I needed a holiday so, so badly. After a tough half term at school I tentatively booked 5 days on Skye. This is a trip I had planned for the same time last year when my plans were scuppered by a broken collarbone and subsequent shoulder surgery.
It has been a year since my Granny passed away. To commemorate this, our family took a trip to Kew Gardens. This was a favourite place for both my grandparents who were keen gardeners.
Despite having lived in Ealing for over 2 years now, I am still discovering local areas and attractions.
I woke up early on Sunday for a 'risk assessment' visit to The Living Rainforest for a science school trip I am planning to take some of my pupils on. It was also a chance for me to get some photos of some exotic animals and plants.
Very rarely do I return to a country I have already visited but Norway is different. It is definitely my all time favourite country I have visited (so far) and will continue to visit in the future.
Unfortunately I didn't enter the Ealing Half this year, I could have but I've got this thing... I couldn't be bothered. The event is always well organised and I used the race as an opportunity to try out my brand new camera.
Of all the countries I've visited, the Scandinavian nations are by far and away my favourite. I'm a fan of colder climates and having already visited Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Denmark; the somewhat obscure allure of the Faroe Islands seemed to be the sensible choice for my next destination.
I have literally thousands of photos of these players on my computer from all the cup finals they have been in and more often than not, won. Here are some more photos of another cup win.
To celebrate mine and Nadine's 30th Birthdays we booked a long haul, activity packed trip to Banff National Park, Alberta. The trip would centre around visiting the world famous ski resorts in the area and be supplemented with a range of other outdoor winter activities.
I don't often return to places I have been before as I would prefer to invest my money and time in seeing new things, trying new foods and getting new photos, however I have a particular love for Norway since visiting Tromsø in 2014.
