CHIHUAHUA CAFE | EDINBURGH | WEEKEND WANDERING

Usually I love the train journey up to Edinburgh - its about 5.5 hours long but it gives me time to write, read and watch tv in comfortable, warm seats. Usually moments when I get to do these things are slotted in in between stressful ones and are therefore very rarely dedicated just to this; … Continue reading CHIHUAHUA CAFE | EDINBURGH | WEEKEND WANDERING

BEER AND BEACHES | DEVON | WEEKEND WANDERING

A few weeks back (when it was still pretty damn chilly), I went with my boyfriend, Fred to visit his parents down in Devon. He grew up there and absolutely loves it, so I'd heard a lot about it. I'd been down to that area of the country before (to Cornwall) but never to his … Continue reading BEER AND BEACHES | DEVON | WEEKEND WANDERING

OXFORD’S FREE MUSEUMS | WEEKEND WANDERING

Lately I've realised how strange it is that I often see more of other countries than my own - on Hamilton and I's road trip around Croatia, everyone marvelled at how many places we were going to explore; places they had never even been to even though they lived there. At the time, I thought … Continue reading OXFORD’S FREE MUSEUMS | WEEKEND WANDERING

UNIQUE BRIGHTON | WEEKEND WANDERING

It's home to two Universities, one pier (the other one burned down) and one incredibly unique, Royal Pavillion.  https://www.instagram.com/p/0CsjpxNbvG/?taken-by=abipageaustin   I lived in Brighton for about 4 years and loved it. I went to Sussex University, which is … Continue reading UNIQUE BRIGHTON | WEEKEND WANDERING

TATE MODERN | WEEKEND WANDERING

I've been to the Tate Modern a bunch of times. Once, I even had the joy of almost getting stuck in a stairwell there - it was 5 minutes before closing time. The lifts were super busy. We decided to walk down around 14 flights of stairs and when we got to the bottom, the … Continue reading TATE MODERN | WEEKEND WANDERING

A RAINY WEEKEND | THE LAKE DISTRICT | WEEKEND WANDERING

The Lake District is a gorgeous National Park in Northwestern England, home to (surprise surprise) beautiful lakes, lovely walks and plenty of activities for the whole family. I'd never stayed their before this trip and was very excited to experience all of these things. August is a great time to go to the Lake District, … Continue reading A RAINY WEEKEND | THE LAKE DISTRICT | WEEKEND WANDERING

TATE BRITAIN | WEEKEND WANDERING

I'm definitely one to struggle with wanderlust, but more recently I've made the effort to remind myself that you don't have to go far to find something new. I won't say it's a resolution to do this because they aren't really my thing, instead I'm thinking of it as more of a conscious effort that I … Continue reading TATE BRITAIN | WEEKEND WANDERING
