Coombe on Over – Warwickshire Country Walks!

In a previous post I’ve harped on about how you do not have to travel far for the experience to be fabulous and I’m still a firm believer of this. MAYBE this is because I’m young, dumb and broke at the moment, trying to claw my way through my final year of university, and therefore do not have the time or funds to travel anywhere further… but MAYBE not.

Afternoon Tea – licious!

Following on from last week’s blog post, I got the pleasure of spending Saturday indulging with afternoon tea at Coombe Abbey, as a birthday treat from Poppy.

I’ve been to Coombe Abbey Country Park so many times, but this time it was nice to swap the muddy wellies and a wooly hat for a bit of sophistication (the place, not Poppy and me)…

Manchester – rific!

I’m back after a two-week posting hiatus…

It was mine and Joel’s three-year anniversary in November so, we decided to book a weekend away to Manchester – I cannot believe I’d never been before!

Leamington – s to Do!

Sometimes the nicest places are only on your door step! An impromptu Sunday trip to Leamington Spa shaped up to be the loveliest afternoon.

Joel and I were feeling a little fragile (putting it mildly) after a friend’s Halloween party the night before. So, on the agenda was fresh air, carbs and sugar…

Never London – e with this Place!

As a surprise for my sister, Katie’s, 25th birthday, my mum and I arranged a trip to London to watch a matinee performance of Lion King the musical. My sister is SO hard to buy for but I genuinely think we smashed it with this present!

Brighton Your Day

After a month away, it’s safe to say that funds were going to be pretty low for the rest of the summer. In a moment of madness, Joel and I decided to buy a tent and go camping…

Brighton was rated one of the best places in the UK to visit during the British summer, however, hotels and apartments were pricey. When researching well-reviewed campsites, Brighton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site hit top of the list and we were just a short walk from the Pier and town centre – and at the fraction of the price!

Un- Bali -evable

Bali was the final stop of our Asia trip and the week that we planned to treat ourselves after weeks of hostels! One thing that is so valuable for budget-travelling is how far your money goes in Asia, you can almost live like a king on a pauper’s wage – love it!

After hearing mixed reviews on places to visit in Bali, we landed on the most positively talked about… Ubud, Gili Trawangan and Seminyak.

How Good is your Wood?

I have been to Qatar Goodwood Horse Racing Festival in Chichester twice now, both completely different trips, but I loved them both!

2016

My mum was feeling bittersweet about turning 50, so wanted to celebrate in style, and with enough celebrations to last the whole month… There was 7 of us attending Goodwood and we couldn’t wait to celebrate my mum’s big day (and hopefully win a small fortune at the same time…)!
