    I saw it in the Icelandic Fjords. It had been blowing water at the surface for a while before diving, flipping its tail up! Not my photo unfortunately, I was too busy in the moment to snap a picture :)

     Probably one of the most amazing waterfalls I've ever seen!

     During the final months of my degree, I was so miserable that I felt like I couldn't go on. I was terrified that my illness had gotten so bad, that I coundn't finish my degree. I'd sent an email to my uni about dropping out, and coming ...
  • The British Museum, Great Russell Street, London, UK
    Jun 1, 2018

     I've wanted to see this for a long time now :) It was very important in our understanding of Egypt and the ancient egyptian language. 
  • London, United Kingdom
    Jun 1, 2018

    It's an interesting city! A lot of the architecture is very familiar to me so it probably looks a lot more impressive to people from outside the UK.    (Not my photo) 
  • British Museum, Great Russell Street, London, United Kingdom
    Jun 1, 2018

    There is a lot of really amazing stuff here. The curators were definately going for quality over quantity. The Egyptian exhibit was great!  
  • St. Dunstan in the East Church Garden, Saint Dunstan's Hill, London, UK
    Jun 1, 2018

    There is a really cool ambience here. Very empty, for some reason tourists overlook this place. It is an over 900 year old church that was partially destroyed during the Blitz of London during WWII, that is now allowed to be taken by nat...
  • Bloody Tower, London, United Kingdom
    Jun 1, 2018

     It's cool to see something so old between glassy modern buildings. The history of this place is also extremely medieval, a must see if you are into medieval history.    (Not my photo, for some reason all mine looked terrible lol)
  • National Space Centre, Exploration Drive, Leicester, United Kingdom

    Basically exhibits about space, as well as collections of old space gear, rockets and uniforms.

    It can look pretty trippy...I'd love to see more shows in other planetariums <3  
  • Dec 21, 2017

    I have done this many times. It's best done where there is no light pollution at all though. Attached is a photo I took in a clear, unpolluted sky and then edited to show all the stuff it managed to pick up. Crazy to think of everything ...

    Dec 19, 2017

     It was so unbelievably beautiful.

    The photo is of a beautiful valley I saw from the peaks near Teno, Tenerife. I watched the sun set from there :)

  • Louvre Museum, Paris, France
    Aug 18, 2017

     Top tip: Get to the Louvre EARLY, and make the Mona Lisa the first thing you visit. She only gets harder to see as the museum fills up.  It took a minute or two for me to get right to the front to see her. I knew what to expect - I'd he...
  • Arc de Triomphe, Place Charles de Gaulle, Paris, France
    Aug 17, 2017

    I finally eased one of my biggest travel regrets by going here again. My first trip to Paris was via a high school trip, and my view of the Arc de Triomphe was through the back window of the bus between peoples heads. I barely saw anyth...
  • Aug 17, 2017

    A cute little chocolate macaron on top of my rose ice cream. I got this in the gardens just outside the Louvre. It tasted really nice, but be warned, they are very expensive in Paris! They are worth it though :)  
  • Louvre Museum, Paris, France
    Aug 17, 2017

    There is the main pyramid outside the Louvre, and then there is the inverted pyramid beneath the ground in the shopping centre. 
  • Aug 16, 2017

    I did it! And I'm so glad I did. I was never satisfied after my first visit because I only got a small taste of the city and didn't really get to explore. This time, I walked around the empty streets lined with beautiful houses with litt...
  • Aug 16, 2017

    This was 90% of my diet there. I don't tend to eat much when travelling, so I got a lot of baguettes from bakeries. Some of the Parisians were actually impressed with my French, even though I'm pretty sure it was a bit broken. When my mu...
  • Palace of Versailles, Versailles, France
    Aug 16, 2017

     It's a beautiful palace, but be warned; August is peak season and you will queue for hours to get in. Once inside, its full to the brim with people. Luckily the place I thought was most  interesting, the chapel, was off limits to touris...
  • Hôtel des Invalides, Rue de Grenelle, Paris, France
    Aug 16, 2017

    I always find it really interesting to see things like this. I was just meters away from a famous historical leader. I kept looking at it and thinking...'He's right there!'  His tomb/coffin was huge as well, it really was amazing to see...
  • Notre Dame Cathedral, Parvis Notre-Dame - place Jean-Paul-II, Paris, France
    Aug 15, 2017

    They we're doing a service when we went. The organ and singing was pretty eerie. I lit a candle there in memorial of my dad <3  
  • Aug 15, 2017

    Narrow streets with every kind of restaurant or cafe imaginable. Impossible to leave without a full stomach :)

  • Powis Castle and Garden, Welshpool, United Kingdom
    Jul 9, 2017

    The terraced gardens of this castle were the best part. I'm not sure why this place isn't more well known, it's really beautiful!
  • Jun 21, 2017

    I did this up in Scotland in front of the reflection of a rock pool. The results look pretty good!
  • Kilchoan, United Kingdom
    Jun 21, 2017

    It felt like a little cactus. But it was soooo cute! It crossed my mind to pick it up for a cuddle, but that would be a bit mean haha. Also the little white fluffs around its head and belly were really soft :) 
  • Jun 18, 2017

     I climbed up a mountain alone in Scotland on a really windy day. I had to cling to the sides of the rock in case I was blown off the side. When I got to the top, the wind was so strong it could easily blow me over. I spent a long time s...

    Some guys were making these in the streets of Reykjavik, and they lured me in with their friendliness and delicious smelling almonds. They let me sample some, and then I had to have them. I needed more!  All you need is almonds (obviou...

    Do not be fooled by the soup. I have to admit, when I received the tiny bowl of apparently 90% water I was preparing to be disappointed. But, it was actually delicious, and that tiny bowl barely left me room for dessert. It was Kjotsupa,...

     Geysir bread is a kind of bread that is baked using heat from a geyser. Quite a unique method!  I had some with butter that had a 'blueberry salt' in it. It was really nice!
  • Icelandic Phallological Museum, Laugavegur, Reykjavík, Iceland
    Dec 28, 2016

     This was one of the last things I did on my trip to Iceland. What can I say...it was a penis museum lol. You can get some pretty funny, albeit expensive gifts for people here too. 
  • Blue Lagoon, Southern Peninsula, Iceland
    Dec 27, 2016

    It's a milky blue geothermal pool powered by Iceland's volcanism. On the day I went, it was extremely windy and snowy, so huge waves thrashed along the surface. This may not sound relaxing, but the water was hot and comforting, and hones...

  • Dec 26, 2016

    The power of the falls was immense. In my profile picture you can see me standing in front of it, getting completely drenched by the spray. The icicles that had formed around it were enormous...I was quite weary of standing underneath th...
  • Dec 26, 2016

    A cute little village at the southernmost point of Iceland. It's a minutes walk from a black sand beach, where the waves were several meters high and Icelandic horses were being ridden down the shore.  
  • Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, Iceland
    Dec 26, 2016

     It was partially frozen in the middle of winter, and the wind blew the water out over us. We could have walked behind it, be opted not no because we would have been soaked and would have to walk around in -4 degrees. We found stairs com...
  • Dec 23, 2016

     They were quite short and chubby, but I suppose they need to be :) They were also really friendly. Not my photo unfortunately, it is pretty dark in Iceland during winter :)
  • Gullfoss Falls, Iceland
    Dec 23, 2016

     I didn't stand very close to the water because the ice had made the paths dangerous, but from a distance you could still hear the power of the water. It really is an amazing sight. I was lucky to have seen it at such a beautiful time, i...
  • Thingvellir National Park, Iceland
    Dec 23, 2016

     The wind could be brutal here in the winter. Take your hands out of your gloves for more than a few seconds and your fingers feel like shards of glass. It's a very dramatic landscape, where the continents are splitting apart.
  • Strokkur Geyser, Selfoss, Iceland
    Dec 23, 2016

    It erupted frequently; I saw it erupt about 6 times. It was unpredicatble though, and would sometimes only spout a little bit. Once it erupted massively, then a few seconds after erupted even higher. Don't stand downwind of it...while we...
  • Sólfarið - Sun Voyager, Sculpture & Shore Walk, Reykjavík, Iceland
    Dec 22, 2016

    This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life. My pictures don't tell the full story unfortunately, and aren't remotely as beautiful as what we saw. We were told that usually the aurora appears white to the naked eye, and tha...

  • Reykjavik, Capital Region, Iceland
    Dec 21, 2016

    Such a beautiful city. All the buildings had a coordinated theme, and everything was modern and pristine but still very cultural. On the sides of buildings was some really amazing street art. Along the front of the sea where the sun voy...
  • Hallgrimskirkja, Reykjavík, Iceland
    Dec 21, 2016

    It's a really interesting looking church in the heart of Reykjavik. You can see it from miles away, so I often found myself using it to determine where I was. The design looked as though it was meant to imitate the basalt columns you cou...
  • Harpa, Kalkofnsvegur, Reykjavík, Iceland
    Dec 21, 2016

    I was surprised by how open this building was to the public.  While waiting for the aurora on our first day in Iceland, we saw that this building was still open past 11 pm, so we sat inside to warm up. There were really nice lounge areas...
  • Dec 21, 2016

     It's a bright beam of light across the sea from Reykjavik. It was kinda cool, unfortunately it got in the way of a lot of my aurora photos :(
  • Dec 20, 2016

     I've been waiting to see this since the concept art came out. It's a really beautiful film. If you are the kind of person with a thirst for adventure and travel, it will probably resonate with you too :)

    We drank the coconut water, then Blue Lagoon and Pina Colada!

     This has happened many times. Sometimes I've seen a butterfly stuck in a web or in long grass and gave it some help, but occasionally I've had a butterfly decide to rest on me. We used to grow buddleia plants in our back garden, so we'd...
  • Sep 23, 2016

     This was so time consuming! Plus both of us messed up a lot along the way. I made the mistake of not buying enough ingredients, and terrible food dye that didn't work. My boyfriend frequently dropped everything. We were a disaster of a ...

    Aug 16, 2016

    I didn't expect it to turn out this well! When I went out, there was a full moon and a few wispy clouds, so it didn't turn out as that perfect dark sky with thousands of stars, but I really like the effect this had on the photo!
