A Day Trip To Dover

On the 5th July, my fabulous Uncle took me to the place he grew up - St Margaret's Bay in Kent. He actually has a house there, which he inherited from his parents and it's where he lived for many years. Although I had been there when I was a baby, I couldn't remember it at all and I hadn't properly visited the area or got any pictures of it for obvious reasons.

We had originally gone with a plan of visiting the tenant who currently resides there and then we were going to explore the bay, have lunch in a place overlooking it known as the Coastguard before later observing Dover Castle.

The pictures shown above show the variation in everything that we did that day. Although you're very high up when you're at the top of the cliffs, the views are honestly incredible. I was blown away, but at the same time, I had to be careful that I didn't literally fall about 300 feet off the edge into the sea!

I'm such a keen traveller and I'm the sort of person that loves exploring and I take photographs at every possible opportunity to make sure I have ways of documenting the places that I see. I was going to take History as a GCSE, but at the time, I wasn't able to take both humanities (Geography and History), so I chose Geography instead. I wouldn't say I regret that choice, as I am fascinated by the world and all of that, but learning about the past and important events is equally as meaningful and intriguing to me.

Dover Castle was just incredible. Since visiting Windsor Castle twice last year, I think that was what kick-started my obsession with ancient monuments and landmarks. I find the intricacy of the buildings, both the interior and the exterior like nothing else I've seen before. It's all so detailed and you can tell that these landmarks date back for hundreds or thousands of years, and naturally, many famous people, both deceased and alive have been in them. No wonder they are such iconic tourist attractions. They make the perfect days out!

Next up, I'm hoping to visit Hever Castle, which is also located in Kent, but just a different part of it and I'll be sure to take many more pictures and do a blog post at a later date of that trip too. It has the castle itself, which is the main attraction, rose gardens, a lake, and even a Japanese tea house. I'm really looking forward to checking out of all those things within the coming weeks.

I really hope you enjoyed this post. I'm trying to create different content, which actually reflects me as a person and documents my life, rather than just talking about past experiences all the time, even though I love that too. Let me know which posts are your favourite!

Lots of love always,
