Photography Journal: The North York Moors

A few months ago, we spent a lovely wintery weekend around the North York Moors…. and I completely forgot about the photos that I took! Most of the moors are quite flat, and so as someone who loves a good hike up a mountain, it wasn’t my favourite national park the U.K. has to offer. […]

Visiting my bestie in Brighton

Last weekend I went to visit one of my closest friends in her not-so-new home, Brighton. I had been to Brighton before, years ago, but I had mainly stuck to the beach and the pier.
