Hello, I’m Nicola, aka Buttons. Welcome to my blog!

I started this blog as a post-dissertation project when the end of my degree was looming and I had no idea what was coming next. Since then I’ve lived in York, Cumbria and Bristol and am using this blog to track my adventures along the way.

I love exploring my local area and enjoy walks in the countryside or checking out a museum just as much as I enjoy travelling to places further afield.

When I’m not writing about travelling, I like to talk about other things I’m doing and enjoying. Usually it’s a restaurant I’ve visited, a book I’m reading or an event I’ve been to – all of which I class as treats!

I’ve been told you should do at least one thing out of your comfort zone every day. Starting this blog was my thing for that day and since then has provided ample opportunity for plenty more adventures! I hope that I can inspire you to try something new too.


I welcome any comments or feedback. All opinions are my own.
