We landed in Budapest on a bright September day. The coldness of London was long forgotten as we exited our cramp RyanAir flight and stretched out into the fresh and warm central-European air. After a quick taxi into town, we dumped our bags at our stunning AirBnB and set off exploring.
It’s that time again. Time to lament that Glastonbury is once again over for another year. But it’s double sadness this year as my favourite festival will not return until 2019. Massively sad times.
I love the countryside. For me, there is nothing better than wrapping up warm with a hat, scarf, and boots on and crunching through the countryside on a winter’s day. I’m very lucky that I grew up surrounded by countryside and it’s something I cherish every time I’m back oop North.

It was whilst listening to a French conversation on an Austrian radio station when driving around the German-speaking region of Italy that I truly appreciated the wonderful diversity and homogeny of the European continent. South Tyrol is the northern-most region in Italy with a diverse culture and history, and visiting the region this autumn was an eye-opening experience to values of togetherness, collaboration, and the pure joy of different cultures merging. It’s something I cherish; no (wo)man is an island after all.
This weekend, myself and my friends went to Kent for the weekend and it was simply lovely.
We went on a bit of a tour around the county to get out of London (I know I’ve only just got back!), get into to the countryside, and see the sea. It was brilliant, even if the weather wasn’t.

Hello! Or should I say bonjour!
I have just returned from Val Thorens in the French Alps, home from my first skiing holiday!
It was amazing – I’m hooked. I’ve got the bug, and anyone who has been skiing will know exactly what I mean when I say that. This is a massively picture heavy post, so sit back, press play on the video below (song of the holiday!) and enjoy whilst I show you around Val Thorens…
And so we come to the final instalment of my year in photographs. December was amazing, I had such a good time in December, it was packed with fun things, all my friends and family and Christmas. A dream month. To celebrate this, I couldn’t pick just one photo for each day, so here are my highlights from December.
This project has been so much fun to so, and so rewarding to go back over my photos each month, which otherwise stay sat on my photo, rarely looked at again. I would highly recommend doing this next year if you’re interested in it. Leave me links below if you are and I’ll check out your photos – would love to see them!
Here’s to 2014, it’s been brilliant.
