Gardens by the Bay — driftingvoyage

Gardens by the Bay in Singapore is a one place stop where every few steps you walk is a photo moment. The place has so many attractions one after other that it seems like a right fit for lazy people like me. Put me in one spot and too many sightseeing places off my checklist😀. The […]

The Scottish borderlands

I’ve been on holiday for the past few days in a Scottish border town called Yarrow.

Where I stayed literally had about five houses spread out across miles of fields, and it was completely surrounded by countryside, cows and hills. I’ve only ever lived in cities and am quite the londoner at heart, so the whole thing was a bit of a culture shock and I did wonder how someone could live that far away from people and buildings all the time without going a little mad, although I’m sure it does have its own benefits. The house I was staying in also happened to be attached to a cemetery and a church that had been around since at least the 1600s, so that combined with the endless nature was a little unnerving for me and I am pretty sure I heard some of the ghosts talking to each other at night. The cemetery was disturbingly compelling during the day and had some really interesting symbols on the graves (some that were also rather disturbing), but I don’t think I’ll be buying any cemetery adjacent houses anytime soon.

It was an awesome trip in spite of the ghosts though, I’ve never seen that much nature (and sheep!) before in my life and although it has definitely reinforced the fact that the UK is pretty un-populated and could easily increase their population without any real issues, it was a very unique experience and was incredibly beautiful.

London is beautiful

I’ve had a serious case of wanderlust recently (and the beautiful pictures of different cities that I keep seeing on wordpress are not helping!) However, no mater how much I want to travel and see other places, I will always love my lovely London with its fabulous architecture and mixture of massive penis shaped buildings and Victorian beauty. I love cities and buildings both old and new, and even though most of the time you walk past it all without appreciating it, sometimes you have to stop and go “jeez, I live in a really cool place.”.  On my way home from work I often walk to Westminster or Charing Cross, so I’ve been taking a few pictures over the last few days and here are the better ones, there’s also a few from Chichester because why not and its pretty.WP_20150630_18_18_33_Pro
