A trip to Fowey

I recently became a tour guide in Cornwall for a week whilst my family were down for my graduation. I tell you what, you think you know loads of places for when people come and visit however you soon realise you basically spend your time going to the same places?! Seems pretty sad considering I…

GRADUATION

I’VE DONE IT!! 3 years of University is complete and now it’s time to enter the real world… It was honestly the most challenging 3 years of my life. The amount of times I wanted to quit, go back home and return to my old life where everything was familiar was far too often but…

St Ives Food Festival

A couple of weeks back I helped out at St Ives Food Festival selling ‘pic n mix’ fudge for my boyfriends business, The Cornish Larder (TCL). It was an exhausting 3 days with early morning starts and late night finishes with my other job however it was so worth it getting TCL name out there….

Australia…Part 2

Now for part 2 of this mammoth blog! Good luck as you’re about to read (potentially) just under 4000 words. It was FINALLY time to pick up our campervan. We were using a company called Travellers Autobarn and I was absolutely buzzing! This was our lil van that would be taking us (hopefully) all the…

March 28th we headed off. Starting at Heathrow Airport, we made our way through numerous time zones, 3 lots of airport security…

Bissoe Valley Nature Reserve

As part of my 2nd year course at Falmouth University, we have been set an assignment to write a magazine article on a local habitat called Bissoe. Bissoe was once home to arsenic works from the early 19th century. Mining began there around 1812 with its main market being the Lancashire cotton industry which used…

ICELAND

At the end of March,¬†myself and some of the other Marine and Natural History photography students from Falmouth Uni took a trip to Iceland. It was one of the best trips of my life. Day 1 We flew with Icelandair (who I thought were a brilliant airline with charging sockets and film screens available even…

Microscopy

Am I actually sat here writing another blog post?! It’s about time! If I’m honest i’ve been in a bit of a lazy and unimaginative state¬†over the past couple of months with a lack of motivation to do anything other than sit on my laptop and procrastinate for hours on end… However… … times are…
