A big hello and welcome to Scrapbook Adventures!
My name’s Rachel and I love to scrapbook! I recently moved from living in Cornwall to Devon to embark on my doctoral training to become a Clinical Psychologist for the NHS. When I’m not working or studying I like to plan adventures, explore and make memories.
I’m originally from Kent and have lived in various counties across the South of the country over the last few years. As you’ve probably guessed a favourite hobby of mine is scrapbooking – I have made countless scrapbooks of holidays, events and adventures I’ve been on. Whilst I love doing this it’s timely and costly and recently I’ve just not had the time to make them. I decided it would be cool to create my scrapbooks online so I can easily post what I’ve been doing and pictures of where I’ve been. I also thought it would be cool to be able to share these adventures with those that know me and maybe even those that don’t!
The basic plan is to share my adventures and any holidays I’m lucky enough to go on and one day I can look back and see them all.
Please feel free to comment on any of the posts – I’d love to hear from you! Let me know what you think about the places I’ve visited, whether you’ve been to them too and what you thought! Feel free to also share any of your favourite adventures, give me ideas about cool places to explore and any tips for exploring too!
Lots of love and happy adventuring!
