I’m someone who doesn’t like to stay in the same place for too long, so I’m constantly travelling between my home in Hertfordshire and Canterbury for University. I haven’t been in Canterbury since the end of May, when I finished second year of Uni, so it was lovely to make a trip down there for the bank holiday weekend. I went to stay with my boyfriend for a couple of days and we had a lovely time relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. On bank holiday Monday we went exploring in the countryside with one of our friends and it was such a nice and different way to spend the day. Usually university life gets busy with lots of assignments, societies and events, so it was great to just have a day enjoying the outdoors and sunshine.
We decided to go walking in Tyler Hill village, just behind our University campus. It felt like back home: pretty and peaceful; I could hardly believe this was only footsteps from busy Canterbury. I’m a country girl at heart: I love the outdoors, struggle with crowds and I really like open spaces, so this was the perfect way for me to spend the day. Minus the ‘eww I don’t want to walk in the muddy stream’, I felt right at home.
I’m so glad I took my camera with me, as there were so many scenic areas to photograph.
I had such a lovely day and weekend. It’s made me realise how much I’m looking forward to going back to Uni in September. Canterbury is such a beautiful city.
Thanks for reading my blog today.
How did you spend your bank holiday Monday?
