August flush...


What an amazing month! August has truly been incredible, with lovely sunshine, coastal ventures, fun photography and loads of dancing! Earlier this month I decided to go on a small expedition around the southern coasts of England to experience the various beaches under the summer sun. From shingles to golden sands, wild life to deep blue sea, lavenders to vintage planes, it has been absolutely marvellous, although with occasional breaks in between due to the unpredictable rain (and also, cause... England!). I haven't done the trip at a stretch but rather with breaks in between each, returning back to my own coastal abode in Southampton, after each trip. There are further trips in line that may involve a few camping and lodging in the places of venture.

Coming to the trips done so far, I have completed East Sussex, Hampshire and Dorset, making a special stop at the magnificent chalky hills of Seven Sisters, joining in with the fabulous Gay Parade at the Gay capital of UK, Brighton, trekking 4 miles on foot from Brockenhurst to Lyndhurst at the New Forest National Park, attending the spectacular annual air show of Bournemouth, having an evening stroll and tea at the sophisticated Quay side of Poole, and finally basking for a day at the beautiful Purbeck Coastal heritages, including Lulworth Cove and the ever popular Durdle Door, with their irresistible renowned Dorset ice cream under the sun. Please read the in-detail accounts of my summer ventures one by one in chronological order:
  1. Lulworth Cove, Dorset 
  2. Durdle Door, Dorset 
  3. Seven sisters, Eastbourne 
  4. New Forest
  5. Bournmouth Air Show 2015
Tracing my footsteps...

I have also done some inland venturings to places like Surrey and all the way to Yorkshire. I have had the amazing opportunity to do a brief but incredibly fun vintage photo shoot recreating the Jane Austen era at the most astounding farm of UK, Mayfield lavender farm, Surrey, and train for 6 hours with some of the best martial artists in UK up North in York. The immediate future plan in the coming months involves spending some quality time in Weymouth and Isle of Portland, before proceeding to the beautiful far west territory of Cornwall, sipping tea at the only english tea estate on UK at Tregothnan, finishing at the west end of the country, Penwith heritage coast, Penzance. I would also like to trace my way back east, all the way to Dover.

I must say, I have been quite fortunate this month, with some really awesome people as company, together with really good weather to enjoy it all! I have also started Ceroc classes that teach jive dancing 6 hours a week (YAY!) that would keep my happy dancing feet going and endorphins pumping... All in all, it has been a wonderful month. Will keep everyone posted :) Until next time, 

Love always :)
