If you've been following some of my Instagram posts this week I've been posting some of my favourite photos of 2017 ( it's been a massive challenge to actually select 9 )
Following on from the picture here are the stories behind them
A few months ago I came across a tweet about an exhibition in Leeds featuring the puppets and crafts from Thunderbirds and other shows from Gerry Anderson. Being a massive Thunderbirds Fan it was a complete no brainer to book train tickets and head up there to have a look. I think if i could have reached an inner child geek level at any point in my life this was the day. Being offered the chance to operate Parker was so much fun.
I managed the ultimate selfie of the year. The photo challenge i'd given myself for Disney in LA was a picture with Mickey and Minnie which I was so happy to do but as it wasn't too busy I took the chance to grab this selfie as well.
Backstreet Boys in Vegas
What can I say this show was incredible. It came up in conversation towards the end of last year and not only did I make it to Vegas seeing the show really made the trip very special. It was a complete trip down memory lane but one I really enjoyed.
If you get a chance to see this show you wont regret it.
The Grand Canyon
This has been a place I've always wanted to visit. After a long coach journey the day was incredible. The view is something that looks incredible in pictures but when your actually there trust me when I say pictures don't do it justice. One thing I found baffling was how it was cooler there than in Vegas itself. It's a place I will always rate high up on my travel bucket list that I am so happy I got to do.
Girls Days Out
This year has been one thats bought a lot of laughter and great days out with friends. This was one of my favs of a get together with friends in London on a lovely summers afternoon.
Disney Land LA
This part of my USA trip was incredible. I've wanted to visit here since I can remember. Having visited Paris a few times to make it to the West Coast was another one off the Travel Bucket list. There is so much more I want to see there one day the parks are huge but so much fun.
Gymnastics World Cup London
I had so much fun watching the Gymnastics when the Olympics were on in London in 2012 I couldn't pass up the chance to see this take place. It was a long day but watching both the competitions that day was an incredible experience. Watching the second part of the day from the Sky Bar made the day that more special.
This next picture is one of my favourites of the year , it was taken at a friends wedding at the end of the summer. I don't often do getting dressed up often but I loved it for this day.
Last but not least was this years visit to Friends Fest in London. Last years was a lot of fun they took the feedback on board and made it better this year. We had a lot of fun taking pictures and sitting in the sun watching Friends.
I hope you've all enjoyed these pictures and the stories behind them
Have a great rest of the weekend on the run up to Christmas
