July 2016 in pictures
This month is going to seem more like a big holiday photo collection – Tim and I went to Great Britain (and it was Tim’s first time there!). I’ll write a more detailed post about the trip, so for now you get an overview through a random selection of photos.
The first half of the month was spent in Frankfurt as usual. I had a couple of work trips, one in Hamburg and one in Kassel, meaning the first few weekends weren’t the most photogenic, but I also got chance to go to the Frankfurt Christopher Street Day.
So here are the photos of July 2016! (I realise I’m wearing the same T-shirt in a few photos but pleased be assured my mum did wash my clothes a couple of times while I was home during the two-week trip… (thanks, Mum!))

23/07 – I didn’t however enjoy the minor panic of this money coming out of the cash machine!

28/07 – Excited for our British picnic!
28/07 – A quick stop-off at Castleford for a coffee. Note how Tim’s walking off in embarrassment…
