“Gorge”ous Cheddar and Bath – 17/10/2020 to 18/10/2020

To celebrate Emily’s birthday this year we took a trip to the Mendip Hills to meet some of her family. Heading out early in the morning, we made good time to Cheddar. After some cheese shopping (of course!) we ventured into the gorge for a day of rock climbing. Something neither Emily nor I have done before…

Cheddar is a really pretty place

Heart and Seoul – 11/11/2019 to 15/11/2019

Our final destination on this fabulous change of plan trip to Korea was the capital city, Seoul. We hopped off of the budget bus we took from Jeonju (which was still such a remarkably nice bus compared to the ones we’ve been taking recently) and headed straight to the Dongdaemun design plaza. A remarkable space located right on a metro line. The sleek and futuristic metal sheeted buildings and surrounding sculptures make a perfect playground for any photographer. So many different angles and lights to capture! There are places to eat and shop both inside and out of the buildings making it even more enticing to stick around this area for a while. A space also exists inside one of the buildings where designers can display their projects or set up shops to sell their goods. It’s an amazing place to find something unique and special. A center for arts and culture is one of the best things to have at the heart of any city and I’m glad we got to see this one in Seoul.

(Fall)ing for Gwangju – 07/11/2019 to 09/11/2019

We decided to come to Gwangju because it was a spot between Busan in the south where we had already been and Jeongju further north where we were heading next. Plus the flight from Jeju to Gwangju was £34 for the two of us. It was a no brainer. We weren’t expecting anything special really, but still did a quick search to find out what to see and do while we were here.

This looks straight out of a rom com movie set

Sandy Toes and Rugby Woes: Busan – 31/10/2019 to 4/11/2019

The first day in a new country is usually a tad hectic. You have to get through immigration, buy a new SIM card, figure out transit, find your accommodation, etc. It can be a challenge. Despite this and feeling pretty exhausted on our 1am flight, Liam and I took one look at the sunrise over Busan as we descended and were ready for it.
