I am so ashamed that I have never been to the Royal Welsh Show. I am 100% welsh, and I know that’s no important but growing up in such a small country, I’m ashamed that I’ve never been to the biggest agricultural festival not only in the country but in Europe.
Anyway, I had the opportunity with work to head up to the show for the day and showcase some of the work that we do. Although I was technically working, I manged to go out and about and wonder around.
How to spend a few hours in a city is a tricky task to overcome, and although I can spend a lot longer in Bath, but I managed to see everything on my list. Bath, England is on my 2018 bucket list and last weekend I managed to tick it off. Although I have been before, but it was for something I can’t remember what for and didn’t even get a change to take any photos.
Bath is a city in the South West England countryside and known for its famous Roman bath ruins. The honey coloured city is known for its Roman archaeological sites all over the city.
On a day to day basis I sit on Pinterest and see all these beautiful places that I have never heard of and add them to my never ending travel bucket list, so here are 7 European cities I’d love to explore.
I follow so many travel accounts on Instagram, and whenever I see a picture of Slovenia it just makes me want to go more and more. The Julian Alps stretch from Italy to Slovenia, and has a little town called Bled situated within the Alps. Lake Bled is one of those destinations where you see a picture and you know immediately where it is (a bit like Lake Louise, Alberta)
Last month, I travelled the long 4 hour car journey to Leeds for the 4th time in 3 years. Leeds is such amazing and vibrant city. It reminds me so much of Cardiff which I why I love it so much.
As much as I love the freedom of staying in an AirBnB, I love staying in hotels. Even if it is just one nice relaxing night but the thought of having the bedding changed for me and food only down a few floors is bloody great (always thinking about food, standard.)
When we first arrived at the Marriot Hotel, the reception area was very grand and the staff were incredibly friendly and funny. Although the hotel looked amazing, the location was perfect.
The outside of the hotel is beautiful, there’s a lovely grass area to sit with a dog fountain. Yup, you heard correctly, a dog fountain. The area is lovely to sit around if the weather is nice.The reason we travelled to Leeds for the weekend was for a festival that was in the city centre, so it was basically on the door step and again it was a 2 minute walk to Yates. (Also always thinking about alcohol.)
I like to think I’m a pretty organised person, but it is no secret that I am an over packer. So when it comes to weekend breaks
/nights away I pack a lot.
I have always struggled with putting outfits together in my head before I travel and always end having a top that doesn’t go with any bottoms or vice versus, but I’ve learnt a few tips along the way.
For Christmas my mum bought me Packing Cubes. I have seen a few posts about these but never really crossed my mind to purchase. But if you do one thing after you read this post, please let it be buying some cubes.
Does anyone else attend a new
city and think you’ve ticked everything off the list and seen all that you wanted to
see but then get home and see shit loads of photos of things you wish you had
done? No, just me? Well here’s a list of things I want to do the next time I visit
This may seem like a weird things to want to visit but Skogskyrkogarden is
a cemetery located in the south of Stockholm. The woodlands has 5 chapels and
thousands of graves. It is a popular tourist/local destination for its beautiful
Spending 2 days in Brighton is not nearly enough time to explore the entire city, but we gave it a good go. From the Sea front to the main train station, the city is very walkable but public transport it also
Brighton has been on my list for so long, and I finally got to explore the colourful sea side city as part of my birthday celebrations with the gals.
