Birthday in Amsterdam

As an extra special treat for my birthday this year, Luke and I headed off for a couple of nights in Amsterdam. Fair warning, this post is very photo-heavy as it was impossible not to whip my camera out for every aesthetic bike on a canal in front of some buildings. Rude not to! After … Continue reading Birthday in Amsterdam

Colourful Capri

Checking the weather forecast on our first day in the Amalfi Coast, it didn't seem like we'd get that many full sunny days for our week. Bearing this in mind, we shuffled our vague plans for a day trip to Capri forwards to the Sunday, to make the most of the sun. We caught the … Continue reading Colourful Capri

Pretty Positano

I came away from Italy with nearly 2000 photos, even after deleting all the blurry/unflattering shots, so it's taken a couple of weeks to get the courage up to have a proper sort through. We actually only spent a few hours in Positano, from around 3pm to 9pm, so it's a good place to start … Continue reading Pretty Positano

We got our first fix over Easter at Coy Pond Gardens, which I remembered from last year had a bumper crop. Didn't disappoint this time round! Still, I'd heard … Continue reading Bluebell obsession

Sunny afternoon at Blue Pool

It feels like ages since we've been to Blue Pool - one of those places you forget a bit about when thinking of nice walks. In our heads we haven't been for years but we actually last went almost exactly a year ago. Synchronised swimmers! I love how every time the light changes, the colour … Continue reading Sunny afternoon at Blue Pool

April Flowers

It feels like spring has come around so suddenly this year. In reality of course it's been warming up for weeks and wild flowers have been popping up all over the place. I've been cracking my camera out at every opportunity, particularly since a week after I took this picture... https://www.instagram.com/p/BSRgA-xA8zk/?taken-by=annarayers ... all the little … Continue reading April Flowers
