2017 Travel Highlights

FEATURED

I’ve taken a moment to reflect on my highlights from 2017! I’ve taken a moment to look back at all the awesome day trips, holidays and adventures I’ve got to experience. So if you’re looking for things to do around London or places to visit for your next trip hopefully this blog will help you too

New York. Sigh. I love this city. The ever honking yellow taxis, the pretzel carts on every street corner and not knowing which street or avenue we were on but loving every minute of it. Given that it was my first time, we did frequent a lot of the typical tourist spots. So here are my top five places to visit in New York for first timers

Medieval, romantic and picturesque are just some of the words used to describe Bruges. And they’re pretty accurate. We visited the Belgium city in the summer of 2017 to celebrate Dan’s birthday. Find out what we got up to during our weekend in Bruges

  • Hall Place in Bexley is part of the #openhouselondon programme for this year. I visited last summer and it was such a nice place to visit. The gardens are beautiful and it makes for a great picnic spot too!
  • It’s @openhouselondon this weekend. Where are you going to explore? This was taken way back in 2017 when me and Dan visited City Hall in London. What a stunning building and a fantastic weekend if you’re looking to explore London in a way that you’re not always able.
  • I’ve only been an English Heritage member for a month but I already LOVE it! This is just some of the things they send you when you sign up, as well as giving you access to 400 sites around the England, free parking and other discounts too. All this for just £8.75 per month (for both me and Dan). Check out my latest blog post for more information on why you should become a member.
  • Happy Saturday! I’ve spent my day in Manchester attending my first #BlogAtTheBeach event. There were great talks, free rum punch, delicious food and a room full of travel bloggers I got to meet and catch up with! And hey, I even won at beer pong!
  • Touristing in Windsor this summer. We opted to not have a tour of Windsor Castle and instead walked the 2.65 miles down the Long Walk, through the Windsor Great Park to the Cooper Horse. The views of Windsor and the ancient trees lining the path were beautiful. The only downside? Walking the 2.65 miles back.
  • On the day this photo was taken @danm121 and I walked 14 miles. We wandered around Little Italy, Boston Harbour, Haymarket, Boston Common and Harvard Square. There’s a lot to see in the city and it’s so easy to navigate on foot. The best way to see a city in my opinion.
  • I’m back from Boston and feeling SUPER jet lagged. It was a productive work trip and I got to spend some time exploring at the weekend too! The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway is a lovely spot in the city. And the perfect location for browsing the street food and craft stalls in the sun.
  • Doing what we do best when in the USA... eating pizza! Stumbled across Monica’s Mercato Pizza whilst wandering the streets of Boston’s Little Italy! 🇮🇹 🍕 🇺🇸
  • Lovely day spent catching up with @cat_turley in Richmond. There was sun, free shots and a huge rubber duck! 🦆
  • (GIFTED) Birthday boating 🥳 🛥 💦 I was lucky enough to spend my birthday boating along the river around Kingston and Hampton Court. Such beautiful views, company and weather. Thank you to @goboatldn for the experience.
  • (GIFTED) Discovering the street art in Brooklyn’s Bushwick was one of my favourite parts of our New York trip. I got to learn more about the area and @thebushwickcollective whilst seeing pieces from both new and familiar artists. Thanks again @icelollyholiday for the experience and for @danm121 for snapping this photo!
  • (AD) Riding around the subway with my head buried in a book. And a pretty useful book at that! We were one our way to Brooklyn to visit @barcade all thanks to an insider tip from my @marcopologuides! We spent the afternoon playing arcade games, browsing record stores and wandering around thrift shops in Brooklyn. Thanks for the 📷 @danm121
