Wales!

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Whale whale whale.... What have we got here? A road trip that's what!
Working in Derby this summer, I was able to explore more of the UK, which happens to be rather stunning! On today's agenda: Wales.
  
                       

First stop: Snowdonia. Dramatic mountains, windy roads, waterfalls and sheep seem to be the common denominators of this part of the world. 
The roads are beautifully windy and admittedly quite scary at times but before you know it you are crossing the bridge onto Anglesey!
      
   

On the way there, we stopped to explore a closed down copper mine that was converted into a museum of sorts. They do a good job at making things interesting and you'll learn a lot if you pay them a visit! You can find them here.

                                             
      


If you do make it to Anglesey, try to go to the South Stack Lighthouse near Holyhead, especially for sunset! Waves crashing into cliffs below and the constant howling of the wind will make you forget anything happening back in London, guaranteed.
      

Next up, discovering Anglesey! The drive back to England along the coast is just as grand, and car hiking is always more relaxing than actual hiking, am I right? 
    

 
 


That's all for now! Stay tuned for more adventures coming to a screen near you...
     


Back in Business

Today is the day! This year has been pretty quiet for me to write on the blogosphere, but things have come and gone, I am freshly graduated, moving to Oxford and ready to Gabalot! (see what I did there?)

Let me treat this post as a catchup, we are all old friends after all (because lets not pretend I have anyone but my friends following this blog), and show you what's been going on!

First things first... Oxford. I'm moving there in a month! It's been such a whirlwind of a year, but I will soon begin the long journey that is a PhD! Madness.

                          


                         
      
Before moving however, I've been enjoying my last free summer as a student.... Before I become a professional student! This mostly involves traveling, and well avocado on toast. 

                         
   
                         
     
    

I'm really excited to be sharing all my travels with you this month, so until then.... Au revoir!
