Snapshots: Hexham in the Autumn

This is my favourite season and not because it also happens to include my birthday. The colours, freshness and frankly beautiful sunrises as I drive to university make me want to whip out my camera along the dual-carriageway.

I’ve not managed to get out an about as much as I’d like but here a couple of my favourite photos from the last month or so.

SnapShots: Gdansk, Poland

Poland was never somewhere high on my list of places to visit but after me and my best friend booked a cheap flight to celebrate our dissertation hand in I fell in love with it.

Gdansk has a beautiful old town and a huge amount of history to discover. I could easily have spent longer than a weekend there. We also had some hilarious nights out in the town, the locals are incredible friendly if not slightly puzzled as to why two English girls where out there in winter!

 

SnapShots: Helvellyn via Striding Edge, UK

This weekend I decided it would be fun to take a stroll up Helvellyn. It’s the 3rd highest peak in England and a really fun walk to do via Striding edge.

The route up Striding Edge is a dramatic one. The views are beautiful. It gets very narrow at points, with long drops either side it’s so not one for those scared of heights! Bit of rock climbing needed in places to scramble down bits but a very fun walk to do in good weather.

Snapshots: Lake District, UK

The Lake District has long been a family favourite. It is truly stunning, one of the most picturesque places in the UK.

Even if your not a fan of fell walking, the valleys and lake side paths mean everyone can enjoy its beauty. My favourite time to go walking is winter. Walking along the tops trudging through knee deep snow with frozen eyebrows is fantastic.

Here are some of my favourite pictures taken from one Christmas we spent there.

Snapshots: Indian Adventures

Continuing with the Indian theme I thought I’d share some of my favourite pictures taken during my volunteer placement.

I was placed in Tamil Nadu from January-March 2014, working with a youth led development agency. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I am re-visiting them!
