Stories of adventure #40

Another weekend is done and dusted. How do they go so quick when the week can go so slow… But I have had such a lovely weekend with my parents, spending the weekend exploring the beautiful city of York. The reason for our visit was my dad. It was his birthday last weekend and when we went to Edinburgh last year on the train, he saw a sign for the National Railway Museum and has always wanted to go ever since. So, just to show that dreams do come true we got back on the train and made a special visit to the museum.

To mine and my mums surprise the National Railway Museum was actually really good. From seeing the Mallard to the Royal carriages that Queen Victoria rode in, to the Eurostar – there was so much to see. Personally, I preferred the Royal carriages and I loved seeing how the inside of their carriages looked with opulent lampshades and plush sofas, as well as tiny little baths and narrow double beds.

Here are a few photos of our time at the museum.

St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall

St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall

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.

Blogmas Day 6: Christmas Shopping in London

Blogmas Day 6: Christmas Shopping in London

I love London and at Christmas, I love it even more if that is possible because of all the decorations and the atmosphere that London itself has around this time of year. I must say my favorite places to visit at Christmas is Selfridges and Carnaby street they just have the best decorations.

Throughout December Selfridges has tons of stuff going on to celebrate the time of year. Everything from Santa in the store, Christmas choir, and DJs, a party parade, breakfast with Santa and they have a whole floor dedicated to Christmas where you can even buy personalised Christmas crackers!! Only at Selfridges!
