4 Hours in Brighton & A Beach Heavy Photo Diary

Despite it being one of the most popular seaside destinations in the UK, until 2 weeks ago I’d never hit the south coast town of Brighton. I’m not a big beach lover, despite the chilled out vibe of a seaside town, so I try to avoid them as much as possible. However, people rave about how much they love Brighton so I had to give it a shot, especially when I only paid £20 for a train!

2 Hours In Kirkby Lonsdale

Over the summer I spent around two weeks in Lancashire. Just touching distance from The Lake District, it always seems rude not to head into Cumbria for a day or two. Although if you ask Jack, South Lakes are still part of Lancashire (even though they haven’t been for his entire life). After being told multiple times by his mum that we had to spend an hour to two in Kirkby Lonsdale, we went for a wander one morning and if you’re around that area then you’ve got to take a peek.

11 Hours In Edinburgh

Whilst I feel that I am fairly well travelled, in reality that’s a total lie. I’ve spent a lot of time in Spain, a few weeks in America and, besides a few other trips to Europe over my 22 years, that’s it really. In fact, until last week I’d never even ventured north of Cumbria. That’s right, I’d never crossed the border into sister Scotland. But being invited to see An Act Of Kindness at the Edinburgh Fringe gave me the kick up the bum I needed to take a trip to the capital and spend a mere 11 hours in Edinburgh.

The Scotch Whisky Experience, Edinburgh

I’m going to start this post by saying I’m not a whisky drinker. I don’t like the smell, and the one time I tasted it I thought it tasting like I was eating a tree. I just don’t like whisky. However, Jack is. And whilst killing time in Edinburgh before we saw An Act Of Kindness, we popped into The Scotch Whisky Experience. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but boy am I glad we took the trip.

Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park

Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park

After yesterday’s post on my favourite things to do in London at Christmas, I thought I’d share one of the most iconic things to do in the city at this time of year over the last decade – Winter Wonderland. Jack had never been, and since we were in London, it seemed right to. We saved this part of our trip for the evening as despite knowing it would be busier in the dark, we’d be able to view the lights in all their glory. So we braved the 20 minute queue to get it (which was bizarre to me…
