Favourite place I've traveled to - New Zealand
I have too many great memories and photos to share of New Zealand. Living there for a year changed my entire perspective on traveling, and was one of the best years of my life. I made lasting friendships and saw the most amazing sights. It's a truly amazing country. New Zealand has it all, beaches, boats, mountains, hot springs, glaciers, and some really amazing people.

Place I can't wait to visit - Greece
I want to go to Greece SO BAD. To island hop and see pretty beaches and the architecture, it would be my perfect vacation. We keep having other places pop up though, so maybe next year. At least I will get my beach trip in the form of Cyprus for a week this year.
The place I live - Yorkshire
I haven't exactly landed in London like most people who move to England, instead I've been living in Yorkshire for the past three and a half years since I moved here. This would be because that boy of mine is from Yorkshire. There is no shortage of things to do though, and where we are situated in Doncaster gives us the perfect base for lots of day trips into the countryside and surrounding cities. Doncaster is known for it's horse races, and the St. Leger festival every year, which we've gone twice. I love it, the dressing up and even placing small bets on the races. It makes it more exciting.
We are surrounded by beautiful parks and countryside walks. One of our favourite places to head to is on the outskirts of Sheffield around the reservoirs.
There's no shortage of museums to visit, including the National Railway museum in York, which we went to and saw the Hogwarts express!
If you've been reading this little space for a while, you'll know we love visiting country houses and castles. There are sooo many near us, so we try to make it a point to go and visit as much as we can. We joined up with English Heritage the first couple years I lived here, and for the past year have had a National Trust membership. We've almost exhausted all the properties within a two hour radius! When we eventually move to the South, hopefully we can visit the dozens of properties down there as well.
While I don't live in London (yet) I have made it a point to make semi-frequent trips to keep up with friends and visit a city I love so much. I'm so thankful I've got to experience the beauty of Yorkshire first though, as I'll always be a country girl at heart.
