How To Spend A Weekend In York

York was somewhere I had dreamed about going for a long time. It’s beautiful, historic and quintessentially English. To be completely honest, I’m not sure how I went this long without going. I’m so glad that I made it to York - it’s a really fun city with an amazing past; it was founded in … Continue reading How To Spend A Weekend In York

A DAY OUT IN LONDON | WEEKEND WANDERING

I wrote just the other day about an evening adventure my boyfriend and I had in London (going up St Paul's Cathedral / eating at Barbecoa). Well, the local fun did not stop with just that day. Only a week later, we both happened to have the same day off (a Thursday) so decided to … Continue reading A DAY OUT IN LONDON | WEEKEND WANDERING

ST PAUL’S CATHEDRAL AND BARBECOA | AN EVENING IN LONDON

I'm not intending on sounding like a broken record but I feel like I write quite regularly about how I've been so lucky to live in a city as amazing as London, with a million things to do at any one time yet while I'm here without anyone visiting to show around, I find myself … Continue reading ST PAUL’S CATHEDRAL AND BARBECOA | AN EVENING IN LONDON

A FEW DEVON DAYS | WEEKEND WANDERING

A few months again, I wrote this post about a trip down to Devon with my boyfriend to visit his family. It was such a nice weekend, that we decided to use some holiday days to go down there again (this time joined by my dog, Bonnie). It always feels a little bit funny writing … Continue reading A FEW DEVON DAYS | 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

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

THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS TRAIN | ORIENT EXPRESS

I tweeted about this a couple of weeks ago, but I'm still thinking about it. The TV show, 'The World's Most Famous Train' was (in the UK) on Channel 4 at 8pm on Monday 30th November, and was a one off behind the scenes look at the historical Orient Express train that travels from London to Venice. The trailer can … Continue reading THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS TRAIN | ORIENT EXPRESS

BONFIRE NIGHT | LEWES

One hell of a British tradition "Remember, remember the fifth of November Gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason, why gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot." Here in the UK, Bonfire Night is one of fireworks, fires and burning of effigies of Guy Fawkes; one out of a group of men that attempted to … Continue reading BONFIRE NIGHT | LEWES

END OF THE ROAD | EDINBURGH | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP

Our two final nights were spent in the unique and charming city of Edinburgh.    I'd always wanted to go and in all honesty had no idea how to go about planning our time there. The rest of our road trip in Scotland was mostly spent in rural areas, so I knew a city would … Continue reading END OF THE ROAD | EDINBURGH | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP
