I have recently been scouring the area where I live for lovely places to drive to on a weekend. Last weekend I spent an hour in the little village of Spofforth, North Yorkshire.
Spofforht is a small village 3 miles outside of Knaresborough. There is not a lot to do there but it does have the ruins of a 13th century fortified manor house which was partially carved into the rocks. Although not a great deal of the building remains, it feels nice to be right inside it with it’s tall turrets and beautiful layout. It was also good as there was nobody there when we went and it was a perfect little suntrap to sit down and have a picnic.
There is also an undercroft cut into the rocks and no, I don’t know what this meant either but apparently it is a basement-come-storeroom! This is one of the only ones of its kind anywhere, cut into the rocky outcrop. It is a lovely, peaceful place to go and take photos, I will be going back with an SLR to do some portraits I think.
The village is a nice place for a sedentary walk around in the spring sun and also has a picturesque little viaduct beside the ruins.

With my visit to the polar station of Ny Ålesund I already got a taste for the far north. But eventually I wanted to get a piece of the real thing. So I went on a journey straight to the North Pole, 90° latitude and a point, where every compass goes cuckoo crazy. It was remarkable.
"I have been living in Portland for about 8 years now, off and on and it does feel like home. It is a great place to come back to after traveling. But I think I am happiest on the road or traveling, it feels kind of second nature to me," explains Portland-based photographer Jeff Luker.

I like to think, that every location I have been writing about in the past years was a discovery of some sort. This story will be about the discovery somebody else made. Wendy Sloboda is maybe the coolest dino hunter of our time. She has tattoos, dreads and she found a new species of dinosaur, that now carries her name: the Wendiceratops Pinhornensis.
