Nineteen, Reflecting on Eighteen.

So there was no post on Friday for one main reason. editing software. I was at my sister's for the wee catsitting, which was lovely and relaxing I binge watched Netflix a lot,  and I'd downloaded a trial of premier pro to use. But I couldn't use it because it's so laggy and frustrating so now I have to find a new software to edit videos on; any suggestions? Then my train home got cancelled and I just didn't have the energy to edit when I got home so I decided to give up on a Friday post and just leaev it to today. I don't normally post on a Monday but given no Friday post and it being my Birthday I thought screw my schedule's write. And that's where I am now.

Right now that's up to date onto my actual post. Firstly with a little Happy Birthday to me!

So I've known I've wanted to make a post like this for a few months. I always do my reflective New Year post and talk about all the wonderful things the year had brought me but this one is different. This is more about how I've changed this year which is definitely significantly and very positively.
When i was at pride lat week I was really just thinking about how much I'd changed, how much confidence I'd gained how much anxiety and worry about general every day stuff I'd gotten rid of and it was just a wonderful feeling. So here's to looking back at my first year as an "adult".

Pride Cymru 2016

So Saturday was Pride Cymru and as usual it was a pretty amazing day, but I got none of the photos or video that I wanted really. And that was mostly because I was enjoying myself too much. I spent most of my day lying in the grass chilling out (and getting sunburnt) and most of the time the last thing on my mind was photos and videos, what a great blogger I am. But that being the reason I don't mind. The day and the night were both great and I was thinking back on how much I have changed as a person from last years pride and it is seriously crazy how much has changed. I look different for a start but also I was so much more confident and chilled out. I actually had the confidence to vlog myself talking this year and that is the first time I've ever done that so yay for me.
Last year I was so nervous the whole time and scared to ask for anyone photos and videos. Ok I didn't get anyone's this year but I had the confidence to get them just not the right motivation.
And i have to say it was a lot bigger this year and the atmosphere was better (though the parade wasn't quite as good).
Oh and you can see last year's post here

Jaipur: Colourful Markets, Garage Dining and Hot Days

This is what I'd call a very random assortment of pictures, Jaipur was the second place we went on our India-Nepal trip and I still wasn't quite used to shooting on the go. Some good pictures came out of it but a lot were lost thanks to a huuge smudge on my lense, which I didn't notice. I could edit it out of some pictures but it was massive and it caused me a lot of pain when editing. Buut I did get some decent pictures out of it, plus of course there's still a lot to write about. This first picture is the gate into Jaipur old city.

Just keep swimming

This is a slightly random post, being that it's pretty much just pictures of fish so if you don't like fish then you can go to this post of sloths or this post of baby animals instead.
I feel like I should explain, I was at a garden centre that just happened to have a little aquarium attached. Now I've never been to a proper aquarium and even with this little one it was more fish than I'd ever really seen, and I had my camera with me so I just took loads of pictures of the fish. It was a lot of fun, though I really wish these poor fish were in bigger tanks... or just the wild but, yeah, pictures of fish.

Delhi and Pushkar, Camel Rides and Beautiful views.

The first instalment of my travels is here! It all started in Delhi, which when I first got there the pollution was what struck me, or rather my lungs. It was so hazy and busy as expected. The taxi I got from the air port was a taxi for women by women which I think is an excellent idea, I haven't felt safer in a taxi before (and I think it's only my second time being driven by a female taxi driver).
