Market Drayton video project (England)

Hi folks,

The 30th day of November of this glorious year was a very cold day, and it remained around the freezing point all day. But the weather was fantastic, blue sky, sunshine, there was no signs of clouds or chance for rain, so it was a perfect day for me to carry out a little sign hunting project, not far away from Shrewsbury where I live. My target was the relatively small market town called Market Drayton in Shropshire, England, simply because it was only an hour away on the bus and I had never been there before. 

It is a nice town, very English, it has some pretty, old, timber-framed buildings, and many many nice pubs - but all in all, it is not that very interesting (worth seeing it once). I, however, dedicate an entire blog post to Market Drayton because this sign hunting project marks a milestone in the life of our sign hunting activity: that was the first time when I documented the entire trip with a GoPro! It was more like a trial trip, so I could try out the camera in action and see how to work as a 'blogger'. Even though it was the first time I had ever done something like this, I think I did it well; but hey! Check my video out (only 7 minutes 23 seconds) and tell me what you think. I have also included some photos here, so at least it looks like I have got some proper content. 

Well, enjoy folks!
