An early morning, black coffee, vinyl records playing and a sleepy dog ♥. Recently, I've watched Boyhood at the picture house, written poetry, danced with the Champion folk, bid farewell to a workmate and worked plenty. Today is a much needed day of writing and listening to The Mamas & The Papas oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I am now in Leeds. On the last day of travel, I thought: I'm going to the seaside and I'm going to wear a blooming bathing suit, regardless of the weather. I walked into quicksand! There were a hundred or so statues of naked men along the beach so I was en route to one. I'm surprised there wasn't an assortment of stationary women trying in vain to reach it, ha. It was a brilliant adventure - many experiences and whatnot. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I've had peppermint tea on the beach, accidentally got lost in the Lake District when following cows (luckily, I found a campsite an hour before it turned dark), visited museums, written poems and watched bands at the Cavern Club. I return to Leeds in two days. Travel is whimsical and lonely and wonderful - it will be odd to be idle once again. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
The Lake District.

Currently in Northern Ireland. I am mostly assigned to dorms with no one else in them. It is almost as if they somehow know I imperatively need an empty 6-bed room to watch English comedic panel series and write poems in. Today I travelled to the Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. The majority of Game of Thrones is filmed (and Paul McCartney formed Wings) in the area - evidently, I am slowly introducing "fun fact" content for a more thought-provoking read. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
Belfast & Northern Ireland.

I am now in Cork, Ireland. Marty hitchhikes across Europe. He has wild stories - much more riveting than tales about chairs, ha. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
Cardiff with Marty.
Pembroke & Rosslare.

I travelled to Aberystwyth today. I've accidentally booked a couple's room which somewhat gives prominence to the fact I am alone. On a positive note, it means I have tea for two, coffee for two, two chairs. One chair would do, really (although, I do enjoy varied seating options). There is a window view of rooftops, the ocean and seabirds. Lana Del Rey's album is a diamond ♥ oxoxoxoxoxoxox
See him picking up flowers off the floor and drinking tea. But you don't love me, that's news to me.

I'm currently writing a poem in Wales. A few photographs from Chester yesterday - mainly plants. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I am in the common-room, accompanied by four goldfish. I left Errol's book in Leeds so need another as he has a few stories to tell. I toured the cathedral today with a roommate - after travelling, I will know the history of the United Kingdom back to front, ha. oxoxoxoxoxoxox
The dad pose.

Today I said farewell to family and travelled to Chester after wandering through old houses in Birmingham and watching Adam on stage in London. I typed a few words for Champion Up North here. Please do read! oxoxoxoxoxoxox
Angel Olsen & Jaye Bartell ♥
Bed socks ♥

I am once again a Wanderer - a decent time to leave as I started to grow fond of the Leeds folk. I know I cannot grow too fond or I will not return home! oxoxoxoxoxoxox
Birmingham & family ♥
Back to Backs tour.
