Sightseeing in London

On Thursday morning, mum and I took the National Express coach to London to do some sightseeing and to watch Bat out of Hell the musical at the London Colesium. I had surprised her with the tickets for Christmas last year and, as it was a matinee performance, we decided to make a day of it and do some sightseeing as well. We both booked the day off work then decided to turn one day sightseeing into two and booked the Friday off too.  We stayed at the Easy Hotel in Victoria, it’s a budget hotel, no frills but is Read More…

Day trip to London

It was our 2 year dating anniversary yesterday and we took a trip to London for the day to celebrate and to see Wicked at the west end. I’ve been to London countless times in the past 9 years, mostly for comic con, sight seeing or for a concert. Most of the time I travelled with family or my partner but a few of them I travelled alone. The first time I travelled alone was to go to The WB Harry Potter set tour with my friend Sarah, I made a mistake when purchasing my tube ticket on that trip Read More…

Weymouth – a trip down memory laneĀ 

Weymouth is one of my favourite places to go on holiday in the UK, my family used to go here every year and either stay at a campsite here or down the road at Westbay. We’ve also stayed in The Bridport Arms, Westbay as well.  There are so many things to do in this part of the UK from fossil hunting in Lulworth Cove to the dinosaur museum in Lyme Regis. The lighthouse at Portman Bill to the beach at Weymouth itself. My parents often go to the Tank Museum at nearby Bovington. It’s a great part of the UK Read More…

The village of Sandford A.K.A. Wells

Ryan and I had the day off together, which is rare as he’s usually working at the weekend, so decided to take a road trip to Cheddar Gorge and on to Wells which is where a lot of Hot Fuzz was filmed. Sandford is the name of the fictional village in the film. We went to the pub (where they have a pint), the shop to get a cornetto (like they do in the film), saw a swan boat (the film references the villagers having issues with swans), saw the church where a killing happens in the movie, saw the Read More…

Cirencester : A Town Guide

Cirencester, Gloucestershire: The capital of the cotswolds. NB. I have also submitted a similar article at Cut Out + Keep. The best thing about Cirencester (or Corinium) is its history. It was the second largest Roman town and has a bunch of historical sites in the town and surrounding villages. On Cotswold Avenue is the site of a Roman amphitheatre. It’s still buried but retains its shape. It’s great for a walk and for taking photos from the top! The Corinium Museum in Cirencester is, as you’d expect, dedicated to the Roman history of the town but also national history. Read More…

Back to Poland!

We didn’t make it to the Zielona Gora Winobranie that I spoke about last year but made sure we attended this year. Winobranie is a wine and music festival in Artur’s home town. There are stalls, various places to eat and a lot of wine. His best friend from Zielona Gora was in the parade, which was also going on during the day.  We didn’t spend as much time in Zielona Gora this trip as our plan was for a road trip to Warsaw and then Krakow. My sister and her boyfriend would be joining us in Krakow. Warsaw was Read More…
