As of recently I have had a serious case of travel withdrawal. I have been sat combing the pages of instagram and blogs from my room in a very rainy England longing for an adventure. Alas I have to wait for the summer to even contemplate going anywhere. However, I decided to embrace the wet weather and go for a short walk to blow away the cobwebs. It's been years since I've been the Etherow Country Park and it was a really nostalgic trip, even though the walk seemed a lot shorter now than it did when I was 10 years old! I took my new Nikon lens along too to see how well it did shooting landscapes and outdoor scenes. With boyfriend in tow we walked the entirety of the park before stopping off for some well deserved Cointreau hot chocolates just as the heavens opened again.
