Tea-Stained Photo Journal: Trail to the Train Tracks

I’ve always found train tracks to be very calming. They shouldn’t be really- I consider crossing train tracks the equivalent to standing at the edge of a cliff: one wrong step and you could be dead. Yet in most cases, train tracks tend to be surrounded by nature that (if you’re like me and barely Read More

Tea-Stained Photo Journal: Birmingham Canals

Birmingham generally isn’t known for its scenery. The majority of the city is smudged into a grey industrial fog that represents more of its history that its modernity. Its reputation tends to be focused on either the dislike of the Brummie accent or how the city is the most ethnically diverse area in Britain. However, Read More

Birmingham’s Bubbles: Finding the best Bubble Tea in Birmingham

The Mugnificent Microadventure: Why You Should Always Check Your Postcodes

We sit there and stare at our phones in confusion. How did we miss it? How did we end up in the middle of a housing estate in Bewdley when we were supposed to be in the middle of a graveyard in Claines? After 30 minutes’ worth of driving, my friend and I pull over Read More

Tea-Stained Photo Journal: Candyfloss Skies

Watching the sunrise or the sunset is one of the most beautiful views that no one actively needs to travel miles to see. It’s a free performance directed by Mother Nature herself, where the sky gradually turns from canvas to painting. The majority of these pictures are taken at sunset throughout summer, while I was either Read More

A Hidden Wonderland: The Custard Factory

Up the road from the bleak, crowded streets of Digbeth in the centre of Birmingham, lies a hidden, vibrant district to the wondering tourist: The Custard Factory. A renovated Victorian industrial business unit littered in artistic graffiti, it’s now the venue for the latest digital and creative district. Even on a dull day, the lively, Read More
