Autumnal Adventures

Saturday, 13 October 2018

Autumn is probably my favourite time of the year to be outside. Winter is far too cold to be exploring for long amounts of time, and in the summer it's far too hot to be venturing far (as you can see, I'm generally easily pleased..). Autumn mornings are fresh and frosty, highlighting all things pretty about our surroundings. Whether you live in a city, or deep in the countryside, I personally think that autumn brings out so much colour allowing anywhere to change into something beautiful. 

Callum, a uni friend of mine came down to visit and we took the trip to Ashton Court Estate. If you're from around the Bristol area, then you will be aware that Ashton Court is where the annual Bristol Balloon Fiesta is held every August. Other than attending the balloon fiesta, I haven't been to Ashton Court, and thought it would be the perfect place to explore. It was. The weather was beautiful, but still a little cold. 

I'd definitely recommend taking in all your surroundings as it transforms into an autumnal paradise. I know I have aged before my time (21 going on 71) admitting that I enjoy walking around stately homes and exploring National Trust locations. Especially when I can wrap up warm. Go collect all the pinecones, acorns and pretty leaves. I dare you.

Do you love autumn as much as I do?
