That is the magic of travel. You leave your home secure in your own knowledge and identity. But as you travel, the world in all it’s richness intervenes. You meet people you could never invent; you see scenes you could not imagine. Your own world, which was so large as to consume your whole life, becomes smaller and smaller until it’s only one tiny dot in time and space. You return a different person. Kent Nerburn. . . You return a different person. . . Reverse culture shock is almost more displacing because your worldview has now shifted. When you leave.. you don’t know what to expect yet when you return to your own country; you don’t see life through the same lens. I am still processing that what looks like for me. . . What I do know: I miss England so much and I am beyond grateful to be back in America. Looking forward to how the summer unfolds.

Repost from @bean_nighe . . Check out the link in my bio for my latest blog about a recent stay at @thepierhousehotel, Port Appin.  It was a wet and misty trip but it didn’t dampen our spirits any.  Scotland looks beautiful when it rains - fair weather travellers miss so much.  This photo was snapped in Glen Etive (one of a number of scenic stops we made en route to Port Appin). Rain drops falling in a crystal clear loch and sea pinks blooming.  Oh Scotland, ya wee beauty. 😍🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 (Ad) . . . . . . . #letsgoeverywhere #bbcbritain #bbctravel #guardiantravelsnaps #lonelyplanet #lovegreatbritain #outandaboutscotland #visitbritain #photosofbritain  #loves_scotland #instascotland #omgb #ukpotd #britains_talent #mybritain  #hiddenscotland #visualsofbritain #capturingbritain #scottishblogger #scottishbloggers

Brockhampton Estate (National Trust) - At the heart of this 687-hectare (1700-acre) farmed estate lies a romantic timber-framed manor house dating back to the late 14th century.  #nationaltrust #uk #explore #england #nt #nationaltrustmember #manorhouse #mybritain #capturingbritain #ukexplore #gloriousbritain #osmaps #visualsofbritain #thisprettyengland #travelimonium #earthfuse #greatphoto #uk_greatshots #greatbritain #travelblog #traveling_uk #travelling #trip #instago #travelpics
Ultima giornata a #edimburgo trascorsa nell’East Lothian alla scoperta di North Berwick.  La mi classica colazione da campioni al @motel_one “Edinburgh-Royal” e poi trasferimento in treno con #scotrail (40 minuti di viaggio). Salita in cima alla collina di The Law per godermi il panorama di North Berwick ed il Firth of Forth, quindi visita del Tantallon Castle ed infine un po’ di relax nella Seacliff Beach ✨🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 . . #scotlandisnow #northberwick #eastlothian #lovegreatbritain #ioviaggioper #motelone #scozia #scotspirit #checkinscozia #foodporn #visitscotland #firthofforth #lovescotland #mybritain #travelgram #travelwriter #tantalloncastle #historicscotland #seacliffbeach #landscape_capture #landscapephotography #scottishlandscape #igersscotland #natgeotravelpic #unlimitedscotland @motel_one @visitscotland @lovegreatbritain_it @northberwickk

Lady Lumleys Almshouses -  These are the almshouses of Thornton-le-Dale, in North Yorkshire. Asside from knowing that the secondary school in nearby Pickering is called Lady Lumleys School I know nothing about her or these almshouses. Or I didn't until I looked it up. -  These particular almshouses were built in 1670 (ish). Sixteen seventy! They're looking mighty good for a building established 349 years ago! Maybe the renovations completed in 2014 have something to do with this? -  The history of almshouses stretches back to medieval times when religious orders cared for the poor.  Originally called hospitals or bede houses, in the sense of hospitality and shelter. By the middle of 1500s, there were about 800 medieval hospitals spread across the country but the dissolution of the monasteries (that pesky King Henry VIII again) meant that many  were either sold off to landowners or left to ruin.  It was during the late sixteenth century that the medieval craft guilds founded many hospitals to provide care for the “elderly decayed” members in their declining years.  Benefactors came from all walks of life; Kings and Queens, Archbishops and clergy, the aristocracy, merchants and liverymen.  Undoubtedly, many benefactors were driven by conscience and the needs of their fellow men, and perhaps a less charitable explanation was the possibility of securing their own salvation! In the case of Thorton-le-Dale, it was Lady Elizabeth Lumley. If you look closely the plaque on the building says they were built in 1656, but as Lady Lumley died in 1657 and the land upon which the almshouses were built was left in her will this is clearly incorrect. She also bequeathed the land fora  grammar school, which closed and the name is now carried by the secondary school in Pickering, and for further almshouses in London - however those were demolished some 200 years ago.
Oh my did we have a treat today! We spent a luxurious morning at @thermae_bath_spa. It’s such a beautiful space and we’ve popped lots of pictures on our stories! We felt well and truly spoilt relaxing in the rooftop pool before heading off for facials! And did you know it’s fine pregnant ladies to use? Such a great way to pamper yourself if you’re expecting ❤️ | #gifted @socialightapp #igersbath #bathspa #visitbath #spaday #pamperyourself #beautifuldestinations #bodenbyme
Pebbled Brighton Beach is a hot spot for day trippers and locals alike to swim, sunbathe, and picnic. 🏖 . It has a promenade lined with beach huts and restaurants, but the real fun starts on the 200-year-old Brighton Pier where you can ride rides and amusements 🎠, or see sharks and seahorses at the Sea Life Brighton aquarium.🐡 . You'd have access to all this and more if you were to attend @uniofbrighton - Ask your advisor if this uni has any programs that might be a good fit for you! 📖 . . . . . #studyacrossthepond #wanderlust #uk #london #travel #beach #globetrotter #england #unitedkingdom #summer #visitbritain #mybritain #capturingbritain #visitengland #greatbritain #photosofengland #brightonpier #sunshine #lovegreatbritain #studyabroad #studyinitheuk #studyinlondon #studyinengland #summertime #summer #uni #university #collegelife #passionpassport

Each year we always make sure to take a day off of work after the convention, so we can spend time together reflecting on what we've learnt. This was one of those days. Floating down a little River in Canterbury, Kent.  Looking forward to this year's convention now! Ours is in August. When's yours? • • • #scenicbritain#ukpotd#ukpotd_jun19#bestukpics#ukshots#uk_shots#lovegreatbritain#yourbritain#discoverearth#bestlifeever#roamtheplanet#earth_shots#visitengland#bbctravel#earthoutdoors#igersuk#mybritain#ukscenery#capturingbritain#gloriousbritain#genuinebritain#ukreal#1ukshot#ig_daily#visualart#map_of_europe#photosofbritain#wanderlust#jw#explorediscoverinspire
Excited to be arriving on site tomorrow morning and enjoying the quiet before the storm with my lovely @oxfamfestivals @oxfamgb #oxfamily. // Drifting back over the many years I've had here: To the corners of the night where I've lost and discovered myself, counted stars lay on strangers' chests, watched the sunlit haze settle among the hills, laughed and sweated and danced and loved, followed blinding lights and hypnotic calls, felt rain that has washed me clean, and stomped the mud that has welcomed me home. Ten years of wonderful, chaotic, cherished memories at @glastofest. #glastonbury #glastonbury2019 • • • • • #glasto #glastonburyfestival #festival #glastonburyfestival2019 #party #swisbest #somerset #coldplay #festivalchasers #pyramidstage #aheadfullofdreams #myloxyloto #festivallife #ukfestival #worthyfarm #concertseries #ribbontower #adventureinspired #capturingbritain #mybritain #lovegreatbritain #createexploretakeover #icu_britain #uk_greatshots

Seeing My Work Put To Use. . I'm back in North Yorkshire for a weeks break. It's a kind of a strange feeling having a weeks Holiday in your own home. I have been away for some time now so it's good to be back home with fresh eyes to look over my local landscape. Yesterday we had a drive through the @northyorkmoors National Park. One place I wanted to visit was the National Park centre at Danby. I knew some of my work was on display and this one is one huge print of Water Arc Foss. Want to know how to find the area. Check out my location guide on my website with maps and details of how to find it. . The Moors National Park centre at Danby is undergoing some work at the moment in the exhibition area which hopefully will be completed by the next time I return. I'm so looking forward to seeing the results. Hopefully the North York Moors can comment on its completion date and information as to what may be in the pipeline.  ______________________________  www.markbulmerphotography.com ______________________________  Settings. ⚙️ 4s  @f13.0 ISO 100 ⚫ Lee Circular Polariser Gear 📷 Canon 5d mk 3 🔎 Canon 24-70 f2.8L USM mk2 @24mm 🏋️ Gitzo GT3542XLSY 🎒 @F-Stop Ajna Backpack 🖥️ Lightroom CC 🖥️ Photoshop CC  _________________________ . . . . . #landscapephoto  #landscape_lover  #landscapelover #landscape_hunter #landscaper  #landscape_capture #landscape_perfection #landscapestyle_gf #landscape_collection #landscape_kings  #landscape_perfection #landscape_gf  #landscape_photo  #landscaperid  #landscape_prime #landscape_features #landscapealma #landscapes_obsessions #landscapecapture  #landscapelove #landscapeview  #mybritain #yourbritain #ukscenery #capturingbritain #ordanancesurvey #bbcengland #northyorkmoors #northyorkshire #yorkshire
King Charles stayed here during the English Civil War. Hopefully it was comfortable and warm, as he stayed here near his downfall.  Now it is a hotel, and it is exceptionally comfortable, warm, and the food is lovely.
The Market Square in Millom, Cumbria, and the statue which commemorates the industry which made the town famous.  Before the discovery of iron ore at Hodbarrow, Millom was made up of just a few villages and farms. After the discovery in 1855, Millom became a prosperous town with a population of more than 10,000 people.  Today, little evidence remains of that iron and steel activity which ceased in 1969, although it had been amongst the largest industrial sites of its type in the world.  The mining itself took place in Hodbarrow, which is a now a major RSPB nature reserve bordering an artificial lagoon - a legacy of the iron ore workings.  The statue is called ‘The Scutcher’; he was the man who stopped the iron ore tubs with an iron bar and just his own strength!  My grandparents moved to Millom in 1929, and owned a bakers’ and confectioners’ shop on Wellington Steet - which is still a bakers’ shop today. My Dad was born here the year after and although I wasn’t born in Millom, we all moved back to the area in 1970, and the rest is history...!! • #millom #cumbria #fiftyshades_of_history #familyhistory #ironoremining #thescutcher #igerscumbria #southlakes #capturethemoment #southlakedistrict #capturingbritain #total_uk #mybritain #explore_britain #loves_britain #loves_england #capturingbritain #englandsbigpicture #gloriousbritain #total_united_kingdom #britains_talent #thisprettyengland #ig_united_kingdom #ali_cumbria_2019 #loves_united_kingdom #visitcumbria #bestunitedkingdom #visitbritain

Waddesdon Manor build by one of the  Rothschild’s ,the richest family in the world going face to face with Rockefeller’s clan.  The place is full of slander and display of art and so on. They donated the property to national Trust in 1957. Just a little gift to the Trust.

CORNISH PASTY 😍  A quick cycle from Wadebridge to Padstow on the @cameltrail today was rewarded with a Cornish pasty from @thechoughbakery which was delicious although slightly stressful to eat due to hungry seagulls! 😥😂 I was pleased to see that they offered gluten free, dairy free and vegan options and can therefore hopefully cater for anyone who visits!  This trip was something we did every year when coming to Cornwall as children and is just as much fun, tasty and very nostalgic to do as adults! ☺️😊

Oxford is the county town of Oxfordshire and famous worldwide for its prestigious university; the oldest in the Englishspeaking world. Prime Purchase Director, James Shaw has lived in Oxford for 8 years. We asked James what he loved about Oxford and for him it’s all about the history, “I am a huge fan of the city, from historic pubs to a number of theatres and everything in between. The  @pittriversmuseum and @ashmoleanmuseum are among two of my favourite places to visit.” #primepurchaseplaces #primepurchaseoxford

Stratford-upon-Avon is the birth place of William Shakespeare. It’s a place where his story began.  John Shakespeare, William's father, was a glove maker and wool dealer, and the house was originally divided in two parts which allowed him to sell goods right out of the window. And that is where “Window shopping” expression comes from.  The house was typical of the times and was constructed in wattle and daub around a wooden frame. The house had a long history of ownership (mostly within its family members) but with the family line end the house was forgotten until 18th century when famous people started visiting it and even leaving their signatures on the window.  Isaac Watts, Charles Dickens, Sir Walter Scott and Thomas Carlyle were among the notables that visited the birthplace and autographed the walls and windows.  The window with many signatures can be seeing inside the museum. ———————————————————————— #shakespeare  #stratforduponavon  #instahouse  #shakespearehouse  #ig_united_kingdom  #ischuttsphotography  #ig_united_kingdom  #warwickshire  #ig_houses  #travelphotography #englandtourism  #bestofengland #photosofbritain  #worldshotz  #ig_travel #visituk  #special_shotz  #explore_destinations  #insta_travel #living_europe  #ig_england  #travel_drops  #photosofengland  #capturingbritain #greatshotz  #explore_britain  #greatbritain  #global_hotshotz  #bestukpics #mybritain
