In 2009 I left school and spent three weeks of my summer volunteering in Nicaragua in Central America. Unlike a lot of my trips which are focused on seeing the attractions and landscapes, these early photos from when I was just getting interested in photography contain many faces of the people I met in Nicaragua.

Bletchley Park - the home of British codebreakers who cracked the enigma machine in World War II. As both a history and computer nerd, I've been wanting to go for a while. After watching The Imitation Game and Hidden Figures, I finally got round to organising a visit as the March / April destination for my 'explore the UK' [...]

From my trip to Japan in April/May 2016 - a compilation of short clips taken around Tokyo and Kyoto including taiko drumming, a dance festival and several temples (including my favourite - the light show at Kodaiji Temple that I found by chance).
In 2010/11 I spent a year studying in Georgia, USA as part of my degree. At the end of that year I had 7 weeks before my visa expired - so of course I spent that time doing a loop of the country (plus a bit of Canada) via Greyhound bus. My memories of this [...]
On either end of my trip to Japan I had a day in Budapest. It's actually two cities divided by the river - Buda and Pest - so I spent one night in each location to best explore the different areas on foot. Tuesday 19th April 2016: Flight into Budapest Flight into Budapest from Birmingham [...]
