Day 24 – 30 Days Wild

Behind the Scenes: Video for the Wild I chose the mystery location for yesterdays' video, because I grew up a short walk away from it and was inspired by an episode of Countryfile where Anita Rani showcases rural Bradford 😛  Incase you've not seen the video, I'll not ruin the 'surprise' with naming it.  It's where I… Continue reading Day 24 – 30 Days Wild
