Goose Fair is a tradition in Nottingham that I’ve been going to ever since I can remember. The first weekend of October brings… autumn leaves falling from the trees, cold weather, wrapping up in scarves and hats and gloves, hot cups of tea and… the fair!
This year I went with my family including my 6 year old sister, which made it all the more magical. When we were younger the fair seemed the size of the city and as high as mountains. Never ending lights, screams of joy, smells, lovely food, dark but enchanting… when we’re older it definately seems smaller (because we are bigger?!), full of weirdos if I’m honest… but it still has the same nostalgic pull (and I still love it).
This time was also particularly nice for me as it’ll be the last time I go for a while, with my travels looming (3 weeks!!!). We ate mushy peas and mint sauce and peanut brittle (not all at once). Walked around in the cold for hours, went on some sketchy rides… and it was still really great at age 24.
What would a mojito be without the mint?

A few from my recent trip to Bournemouth. Objective: despite who you’re with or what you’re doing or what the weather is, make your own imagery.
Long exposure shot in Prague – this shot was a quick set, it was raining but I really wanted it done!
I recently took a little trip with my boyfriend to Prague. It was an Easyjet deal, fairly cheap and we only got 2 full days – but it was defiantely worth it.
WE STAYED: In a hotel that goes by the name of PRAGA 1. Although the tripadvisor reviews were all good, we were a little disappointed. The room had 2 singles together instead of a double (and I kept getting vertigo in the night as the bed was uneven!) However despite the hotel being a little drab, the location was PERFECT. Everything was in walking distance and breakfast was lovely.
WE VISITED: Charles bridge, we walked around both the old and the new town, went to both the toy museum and the national museum. Prague is a city full of beautiful architecture and history, and theres chance to learn about the Austia-Hungary/Chezch independance at the naitional history museum – which I would highly recommend.
WE DRANK: So much beer. Beer is cheap in prague, at 300-400 Kronas a pint, which is around £1/£1.50. I’m not a massive fan of beer, however I discovered a bizzare beer cocktail by the name of Diesel, which is actually beer and coke. It was GREAT. And we spent many hours in a pub by the name of Hoppollaaa … good for bohemian styling and 90s techno music – a strange mix but it definately worked.
Also a great place for photography!
Autumn colours, falling leaves, a winding road, a good camera and good company. A great way to spend a saturday.
