Mother’s Day at Longleat Safari Park

Yesterday was Mother’s day in the UK so we took a trip to Longleat Safari Park. Mum had been hinting at wanting to go to their for weeks. 🙂 To keep the suspense we took a detour through Westonbirt but as soon as she saw the lion signs the secret was out We bought our discounted tickets online to benefit from the online discount. As I was going through the checkout we found out mum’s could get in free which I thought was a great idea. Nice one Longleat! 🙂 We headed for the Safari first and hopped on the […]

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. […]

Road Trip From Warsaw to Krakow, 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 […]

Mother’s Day trip to Bath

This past weekend Artur and I took my mum to the city of Bath to celebrate Mother’s Day. She had given us a few ideas for her Mother’s Day outing the week before including Bath Bourton-on-the-Water and Longleat Safari Park and Gardens. With its Roman history and the chance to explore a new city – Bath was an easy choice. To be honest I’m surprised we took so long to visit this beautiful city as it’s only an hour drive from us. Of course this meant we could have a little lie-in. 😉 Always a bonus. We opted for the scenic route down the […]

Travelling to Paris by Motorbike

This past weekend my boyfriend and I made a last-minute decision to go on a road trip to Paris! And since it was a bank holiday weekend we both had three days to play with. Instead of using my car, we decided travelling to Paris by motorbike would be a great new adventure for us. We started our trip early Friday morning with a 3-hour journey to The Channel Tunnel at Folkestone. Of course, we stopped on the way for snacks and restroom breaks. But I quickly found out that travelling by motorbike is a lot harder than by car. […]

Cologne and the Rise N’ Shine Convention Germany

If you’re a long time reader you’ll know that I’ve been to a fair few conventions over the years. But never abroad. That was until my friend Sarah – who I met through the Hallowhedon events – invited me to come to the Rise N’Shine convention in Cologne. Germany! Which was not only my first convention abroad but also my first holiday with friends. Cologne itself is a very beautiful city, the cathedral, the dock lands, the gardens, the fountains! I was only there a short time but I fell in love with this city. I went to Cologne with […]
