Swinging Through Nottingham

lacemarket-3
If you've been following my Instagram you might have noticed that last weekend I went on a whistle-stop tour of Nottingham. Between traveling and work I am quite behind on my blog posting, but now I have some lovely pictures of Nottingham to share over the week or so, which is especially nice since I don't find my own backyard quite as inspiring to photograph and explore in January and February! Nottingham in my opinion was the definition of a hidden gem--well maybe it isn't so hidden, but I hadn't thought about going there before! Which made for the whole visit being a pleasant surprise; it reminds me of one of my favorite lines in a movie where a character says, "I enjoy being half-educated. Makes everything so much more interesting." I was definitely only half-educated about Nottingham and now I'd even go back in a different season to discover more. I loved that we could walk almost everywhere we wanted to explore and the every break for food was always amazing. I mean, I might prefer to live in the countryside, but when it comes to dining cities have us country mice sorely beat; our address is so rural I have yet to find a pizza place that delivers to us! Needless to say this means we cook a lot at home, so one of my favorite indulgences when we travel is all the restaurants. I'm not really a foodie or anything, but I loved everything we had on this trip even the pub food. This trip makes me want to plan more weekends away!

  9. I love reading your blog. It’s so nice to see your photography & how much you enjoy traveling— & isn’t that a line from “Charade” with Audrey Hepburn & Carey Grant? That’s my favorite Hepburn!

    1. it's Samantha Pleet, but I just said old dress in the post b/c it is literally like 6 years old and I don't think it can be found anywhere online anymore. Although maybe used on ebay?

  11. Beautiful pictures. Nottingham looks great!

    If you haven’t already, you should really visit Norway - Oslo with its sculptures and art, Bergen with its old wooden houses by the sea, Fredrikstad with its beautiful, fortified town... Or somewhere more rough, like the mountain area of Jotunheimen or up north in the country. Recommended!
    The Czech Republic is also great - Prague is magical, and so is Cesky Krumlov. Well worth a visit:)
