In June 2014 I took a road trip with two of my friends from London. We set off to Bath but traveled via the Cotswolds to soak in some of the countryside. Leaving London we went north in a rental car and spent the day experiencing some of the delightful villages and towns that the Cotswolds has to offer. The whole area is beautiful in June and I suspect they would be nice to visit any time of year. For somebody like myself who grew up on a farm and is now living in a big city it was a welcome break to the countryside - filled with rolling hills and quaint houses.
One of the earlier villages that we stopped at - I think it was Bibury - had an art sale happening in the local church so we popped in for a look around and a cup of tea.
In April 2013 I took a weekend trip to Dover and Canterbury with a friend of mine. It makes a great short break from London if you want to cram in the sight seeing into two or three days. Canterbury is easily accessible by train from London and there are plenty of B&Bs that are close enough to the historical center. There’s a lot to do both inside and outside at Canterbury - we spent the majority of our time here. We also spent a day by taking the short train to Dover and exploring Dover Castle, the secret wartime tunnels, and the White Cliffs.
Until recently I had never been to either Hungary or Greece, so I was quite excited to go on a short trip spending 5 days in Budapest and then 4 days in Athens. I brought along my Nikon FM2N that I acquired from last year’s Photographica Fair in London as well as two Nikon Series E lenses (the 50mm f/1.8 and 35mm f/2.5) and some Kodak Portra 400 and Fuji Superia 200. Below is a selection of photos from the trip with some short descriptions.
Heroes’ Square is at the end of a long road leading away from the river on the Pest side of the city in City Park. It’s a huge landmark and was filled with tourists, myself included.
