Easter weekend had really nice weather so we were able to visit my sister's garden for my niece Arabella's 4th birthday and meet her new baby sister Betty. I haven't had the camera out for ages so today was the perfect opportunity to get some snaps.
Having moved into a new flat and Nadine using some annual leave to do so, we spent a couple of days in South Wales - Nadine, being a Dutchy hasn't visited Wales before so we made the drive west for a flying visit, stopping by in Cardiff on the way.
Following a busy few days preparing for and shooting Carly and Paul's wedding and having already made the journey way north of the border, Nadine and I extended our stay in Scotland and travelled north-west to stay in Fort William for New Year.
Paul has a close connection with Scotland, with both his parents being from Glasgow and coincidently his late grandparents living in Musselburgh just outside Edinburgh - where some of my family came to settle too. Carly had always dreamed of a castle wedding so Scotland was the obvious choice for them.
Give me a holiday in the mountains over a beach holiday. I love the ever-changing landscape in mountainous regions and the landscape of the Dolomites mountain range in South Tirol, Northern Italy was no exception.
Having two instagram accounts following hundreds of classic, sports and modified car related users, a name that has consistently popped up over the last few years has been 'Caffeine & Machine'. Home of cool cars, combustion and coffee.
This would be my third visit to Nice. I love the area, owing mostly to the variety in activities and scenery of the area. It also has fantastic and affordable transport links that can take you east and west along the southern coast of France and over the Italian border in less than an hour.
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.
A return visit to the Limburg region of the Netherlands and the Northern Westphalia area of Germany.
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.
