For anyone who hasn’t been or heard of it before i highly recommend you go there if you’re ever in North Texas. The Stockyards are a site of huge historic importance forContinue reading “Fort Worth Stockyards, Texas”
We recently took a trip East of Dallas to Lake Tawakoni State Park. It’s around 50 miles to the east of DFW and situated in serene countryside surroundings. The lake is named after the Tawakoni Indian people who lived in North Eastern Texas prior to the arrival of Europeans. At the park itself there’s aContinue reading “Lake Tawakoni State Park, Texas”
Thought i’d share a few random photos i’ve taken over the last 6 months of living here. All of these were taken in around the Downtown area of Dallas. Looking forward to being able to get back out and about again and hopefully take some more photos soon.

Depending on where you park you can also get a good view of some sites inContinue reading “Cedar Hill State Park”

If you haven’t been to Normandy I highly recommend going, particularly to the U.S military cemetery in Colleville Sur Mer. Before I moved to Texas I had no idea that in a small town just southContinue reading “Denison, Texas”

I took a trip in late 2018 to visit my fiancé in Nevada. I began my journey from Birmingham Airport in England, 25 hours and two rather exhausting changeovers later I finally made it to Salt Lake City. This trip would encompass three states Utah, Nevada & Idaho. I didn’t know what to expect havingContinue reading “Salt Lake City, Utah”
After leaving Utah behind we arrived in North Eastern Nevada. Despite travelling for around 4 hours we only encountered a few small towns before arriving in Elko.
