Exploring my hometown and surrounding areas

When I finished uni back in 2015, I dreaded the thought of moving back home. Every corner would be a reminder of something I didn't want to think about, and moving away made me feel like I'd just rather not return. How wrong I was, I loved being back home but almost three years on, I'm finally starting to truly appreciate my hometown. It's small, but incredibly pretty. It may not have the best shops, but it does have friends and family.

A few weeks ago, I headed into town with Georgia to take some outfit pictures. We wandered the pretty streets, and headed to a playing fields a mere walk from the town centre. A lot of time was spent there in our teens; playing games, drinking lambrini and building on our friendships that are still going strong ten years later.

Then, at the weekend my Mum and I took a trip to Wandlebury, a place we visited on occasion when we were younger. It is such a lovely country park, and it made me so grateful to live in such a gorgeous place in England. We have everything; from cities like Cambridge, to beautiful country parks and small market towns full of lovely memories. I'm so lucky to have grown up in such an idyllic place.

I've made a vow to explore more of my hometown and surrounding areas. Rather than spend my weekends snuggled up on the sofa, I want to get outside and explore more of my home town and the surrounding areas. My hometown is so gorgeous, and I should be making the most of the wonderful place I am lucky enough to live in!

Do you appreciate your hometown?


  1. It's always great exploring our home town and surrounding areas with friends and family. Until we explore we don't know the real beauty of that place. Hope to see you exploring more places.........

    1. Absolutely, I completely agree - it's really made me reevaluate the place I am lucky enough to call home xx
