For mine and Jess’s trip to Amsterdam we decided not to stay in a hotel but an Airbnb. I had stayed in several Airbnb’s before and I personally have had a great experience and all houses I have stayed in have been amazing. And this gem was no different.
Amsterdam is a foodies heaven! I think everywhere I looked there was yummy food from chips covered in sauces, waffles coated in chocolate, to big ice cream cones. But also nestled away there are healthier cafes and amazing coffee shops (and I mean coffee shops that sell coffee beans). I had seen some places online and had kept them in mind when on my little city break and I loved each and every one of the places we went too. Even my three euro pizza slice was INCREDIBLE!
Warning: This post may make you extremely hungry… Like I am now writing it!
During this snow apocalypse (thank you to the beast from the east) we are currently having, I find myself slipping off into a daydream of summer adventures.
We all need something to look forward to and this beautiful spot in Marazion, Cornwall is the perfect place in either spring or summer. You may have seen images of this historic castle perched on top of a hill out in the ocean and people wandering up a causeway through the sea! Basically walking on water…
So, if you want a fun day out to look forward too I suggest this gem.
Hello! And welcome to the first post of 2018! I hope you all had a lovely break over Christmas and new year full of eating, drinking and a lot of lazy days. I know I did, I think I wore PJs more than I wore clothes… But it was Christmas so it was allowed.
But back to reality now and I am back at university sitting in my room wrapped up in 100 layers typing this blog post. Yipee to student accommodation!
Now I absolutely loved Edinburgh and recently coming home from there after Hogmanay, I thought I would put together a little guide to the places I have loved. I have only been a few times so I do not have the super exclusive places but I am writing this to tell you all the little tourist spots and cool places to go if you do. As well as this, I have only been when it has been extremely cold so I cannot give tips about Fringe festival or beer gardens as that would be extremely cold! Hopefully, in the future when I visit again, of course, I will go in warmer months.
My trip to Cornwall now feels a lifetime ago now I am back at university but the sunny day in St Ives remains there in my memories! It was here I had my delicious Cornish pasty and got very red shoulders!
I have been to Cornwall a number of times but never before had I visited or even heard of Porthleven. I can’t believe I never had because it was so beautiful.
Porthleven is England’s most southerly port and is literally brimming with history. This quaint little port is so picturesque, with white cottages contrasting again the bright blue sea, and filled with shops and restaurants.
Thursday morning I was up bright eyed and bushy tailed standing on the platform at Paddington station ready to undertake my journey to Newquay, Cornwall. I had been to Cornwall previously and it is just one of the most beautiful parts of England and I urge everyone to go and visit at some point! You just would not believe you are even in England with the white sand beaches and turquoise sea!
