My Travels

When I'm not busy making things I'm usually going for a walk and taking photos, or hopping on a train somewhere to go look round a bunch of museums. I love visiting new-to-me places in the UK and (eventually) blogging about my visits, and I hope my posts will give you some inspiration for your own adventures!
