I recently read a book called 'Do Fly - Find your way. Make a living. Be your best self'. The author, Gavin Strange, talks about developing creative side projects. It was such a refreshing read and I felt totally inspired, so I set myself a project and this is the result. Hope you all enjoy it! Let me know what you think! Credit to: Rob Potter: />Simon Clements: />Josh Morgan (HighDrone Bristol): /> Bristol Colour Capital: />Gavin's Book: /> (P.S I know it says I uploaded it on the November 30th and the film says December 1st. I made it public on the 1st but uploaded it privately a day earlier, just to make sure all was good!) ☺Subscribe />☺Twitter: ☺Instagram: />☺Snapchat: ciarahillyer

I too didn't particularly appreciate just what a great place my hometown was, until I (foolishly) moved away back in 2004. I miss the place so much.

Left Bristol 18 yrs Ago.. It Has Never left My Heart. I moved to Southern Ireland ? After Running The One n Only MARDYKE MOTORCYCLE ROCK BAR! 😎. At least It Was Back Then! Got despondent..😢 ..Culture of England was Dying and Everybody was Paddy's Day Mad! So I embarked on Trying to Promote St George's Day from my Shop on The Christmas Steps and My Organic Veg Stall in The Glass Arcade St Nicks Market.. I handed out And Gave away Red Cross 'St George's' Flags.. I offered them To My Bank My Churches Establishments With Bare Flag poles Etc Etc Etc .. But To No Avail.. I heard The Waterboys singing Old ENGLAND Is Dying.. And I couldn't ve Have Agreed More.. I sadly came to The conclusion She Was lost and Spiritually Dying... So I embarked on A journey That Id've NEVER Believed..That I'd leave My Home Town Port of BRISTOL.. What a Religious trip I've Been On both Highs n Lows. But Now I see England Is Sinking even Deeper down The Tubes!😢 . Overcrowded Messy And Not A Red Cross Banner to be Seen??? Madness at Work.. I've spent More Times visiting Home.. Now I Carry My Red Cross And Raise It Where ever I Go!😇.No Other Flag Can Hold A Candle to It! So Get out and Join the Few! HallelUjah and Amen. Yours Sincerely Ozzy Osborne Aka BRISTOL IAN. Non Nobis Domini.

I just got to Bristol, I'm from South Africa. I would like to tour around the city. Do you perhaps know who I could contact to help show me around??

The first city to which I visit in Europe and the UK. All people whom I met in the city were funny, nice and kind. I still remember that I talked with a Bristolian guy who was really interested in the Northeastern Asia where I'm from. I do miss when I was in there so much. Thanks for uploading the viedo. Gert lush!

This is a great video - of such a lovely place! :) I lived there for just under a year and a half, but now live elsewhere, and I'm hoping to move back to Bristol or Cardiff asap as I love the Somerset/South East Wales part of the UK so much. x

Growing up in New Zealand to Bristolian parents I often got weird looks for my general attitude, accent (a unique hybrid Kiwi/Bristol accent) and outlook on the world, or generally considered an outsider, when I visited Bristol I learnt where everything that made me who I am came from and that I wasn't "a weird outsider" but that there was a place where I could fit in and not be judged. I've visited Bristol 3 times now in my adult life and still like to think of it as a kinda home away from home, or at least feels more homely than here at times. I love walking through St Nicholas Markets and checking out the stalls or just walking the city in general.
Simon Melon
Bristol is only up the motorway for me. I've always liked it more then any other English city.
Moved here 5 and a half years ago and I love it. Great film Ciara :)
does England still use british standards (BS) in engineering?

Hi there, we've been enjoying watching this. We film 4k walks in cities too, and have just filmed Bristol, so it's lovely to see someone doing something similar but from an informative viewpoint, thank you for taking the time to add your video. As we do a similar thing, perhaps we could subscribe to each other and share more? we'd like that.

I wish to visit Bristol and some cities in the South West! Thanks for your video Ciara I found it very interesting and you are such a charming lady!😀
You captured the City's atmosphere perfectly! It's a beautiful place which has so much on offer. I love a coffee in The Canteen, or a pint somewhere in Kings Street. My Sister moved there from Belfast last year, so I always get over with my Camera every couple months. Great Video, hope you're keeping well!
