Seeing Cheltenham From Above with Light Up Cheltenham *

AD, Gifted | Cheltenham is one of my favourite towns to visit in the Gloucestershire area. The town itself is home to some stunning Georgian architecture, lovely parks, an array of shopping streets and more than 25 different events and festivals held throughout the year. So you’re never short of things to do. And with its close proximity to the Cotswolds, it’s also perfect for those visiting the area. But while you may have heard of its more famous festivals such as the Cheltenham literature festival, which just so happens to be the world’s longest-running literary festival. Or The Cheltenham […]

Spending 24 Hours in Birmingham *

AD | Even though I only live an hour away from Birmingham (on a good journey), it’s not somewhere I’ve explored much of, besides its music venues and shopping streets. And of course their well known Christmas markets. So I was interested to see what other tourist attractions the city had to offer, but with only 24 hours in Birmingham, I knew we had to use our time wisely. We decided to travel to Birmingham by coach but it’s also easily accessible by car or other means of public transportation. Birmingham Airport is directly connected to the rail station by […]

Spending 48 hours in London

After a busy few days in Plymouth, and only one day actually spent at home(!), Aaron and I decided to hop on the National Express coach to spend a couple of days in London. There’s so much to see and do in the city, which is just one of the reasons why it’s one of my favourites to visit in the UK. I never fail to find something new every time I visit. We had planned to do a tandem bunjee jump alongside the 02 arena on this trip. But unfortunately they were sold out! 🙁 Instead we booked an […]

A Long Weekend Road Trip to Plymouth (UK)

It’s been a busy couple of weeks! First Aaron and I had a long weekend in Plymouth followed by an overnight stay in London. Then I celebrated my birthday with a couple of days out, and finally my sister’s hen weekend in Disneyland Paris. Needless to say my blog has taken a bit of a back seat! 😅 To get me back into the swing of things I thought I’d write a bit about all the trips I’ve been on recently. Starting with our road trip to Plymouth at the end of April – which seems so long ago now! […]
