And by “make the most”, I don’t mean how to stuff as many pastries into your knickers as possible at breakfast time!
Nestled in the heart of Yorkshire, Harrogate is the ideal place to go for a weekend of relaxation, or an afternoon of retail therapy. This picturesque spa town was popular among Edwardian and Victorian high society and has continued to be a top tourist spot ever since. I recently visited the town for a couple of days, so thought I’d share my best finds with you.
Just a short train ride from both York and Hull, Beverley is the perfect escape from the bustling city. The historic market town is full of cute cobbled streets, yummy eateries and tonnes of character.
I’ve rounded up some of the best bits of Beverley, from the cultural hotspots to traditional sweet shops and quirky pubs.
I finally did it. I finally did the ‘Dutch Dash’ from Hull to Amsterdam. Or rather, Hull to Rotterdam, then to Amsterdam.
Aaron and I went on our first ever mini-cruise, with P&O Ferries from Hull to Amsterdam. And it was fantastic, but not for the reasons that you’d think.
Here are 7 things I learnt when I visited Amsterdam, plus some photos that I took with my new 50mm lens.
Today I visited my first ever pumpkin patch. Well, it was more like one of those ‘pick your own’ fruit and veg farm that are commonplace in the English countryside. It was lovely to wander around the fairly peaceful surroundings and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, which I have seem to have grown accustomed to since moving to Hull. Although I also grew up in a city, my parents would often take drives out into the country on weekends and I never realise how much I miss it until I venture out of the concrete jungle.
