I am a Leodian, born and bred. Apart from a couple of failed attempts to live in Hull and Bangor, North Wales, and a year living in university accommodation in Huddersfield, I’ve never left Leeds. It seems to have this inexplicable pull on me, and I’ve been unable to leave.
However that will all change in November 2013, when I move just about as far away as is possible – to Australia. I’m embarking on a year-long adventure down under but, before I leave, I realised that I need to uncover just what it is that my hometown has to offer. I’ve resided in Leeds for 29 years, yet never truly appreciated it.
I aim to visit and write about as many cultural hotspots, fun attractions, and great leisure venues as I can, both in Leeds city centre and beyond.
