This week (and for the next few weeks) I’m enjoying a well-deserved (in my opinion) break in Europe. I’ve returned to my home town of Manchester in the UK and am spending time catching up with my family and taking nostalgic tours around all my old haunts. Whilst I’m in the UK the fabulous students from LA14 are in the excellent care of Mrs Vandebroek and continue to blog in the usual way.
Yesterday I had gruelling 18km walk around the hills and countryside of the Hope Valley (apparently the village where all “Hopes” originated). The scenery was incredible and the climb up and down the hills punishing, but the reward was the great photos you see below. I’m sure our amazing art teacher, Ms Svein will enjoy these (sorry there’s so many of them).
