Mostly photography and some other musings.

We visited Peak District couple of weeks ago. It was on my list of places to visit in the UK. There are several national parks in this country, and this has its very own history. Mostly, because it was the first area of land declared national park in UK! A bit tired of the landscapes surrounding Cambridge (flat, is completely flat), I was in need of some elevations, literally.

We stayed in a place in the Hope Valley. From there we visited Edale, Hope, Castleton, Buxton, and some other places along the way. We did walk a lot. One day it poured rain and we ended completely soaked. We even climbed a hill called Mam Tor, which means Mother Hill. If the weather is good, the views from the top are amazing. Apart from great landscapes, the villages and towns in the area have a special charm. Even some dirty alleyways…

I think I will return to this place.

    Seems like a green and lovely area. Great place for photos, but I’m afraid I would get bored pretty quickly at a place like that…

      One can get bored of everything if you give it enough time… This was my first time there and I liked it!
