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.
It was exactly a year ago today then I was hustling through the Souks in Marrakesh and exploring the Moroccan city. Every day I see, picture of people exploring Marrakesh, which has made me want to go back and explore more. Here’s what I regret not seeing/doing but I am 100% heading back and completing my list.
#1 Stay in a Riad
A Riad is a traditional Moroccan house centred on a courtyard. I have seen all the social media influencers stay in this Riad, and as popular as its become that it kind of puts me off going but it looks so darn beautiful.
I love a festival. Whether that be music, food or drink. I first went to a music fesival when I was quite young (legal to drink…I THINK) and I went to Reading Festival. It was back when the line-up didn’t get announced until the very moment the tickets got released and tickets were like gold dust. I didn’t shower for 4 days, did my business is a porta loo and drank until I was dehydrated and from there I caught the festival bug.
Every year I say I’m going to attend all the festivals and have an amazing time and every year I only attend at least 1 place on my list.
Although I have always have a serious urge to travel, these
past few weeks I have been itching to get away and to also get some
inspirations and content for you guys!
So last Sunday (it was supposed to have been Saturday, but
gin happened the night before) I went a on a solo mini adventure to Dyffryn
