It has been a long time since my last blog, mainly due to a rather annoying holiday ban at work, boo! But fear not travel fans, restrictions have been lifted and come the end of September I will be off to a wild and exotic location for a very exciting adventure.

So in preparation for my next trip I have treated myself to a fancy pants new camera and since summer has finally arrived in Ye Olde London Town, I've been faffing around with said new toy and here are a few sample shots for your perusal, think I may need to keep practicing...
