Cala Llonga Ibiza – about 5 days ago


It’s the Weekend!!

The best feeling has to be waking up on a Saturday morning and realising you don’t have to go to work.

This weekend I hope to go on a nice long walk; eat some nice food and just make the most of a couple of days away from work to have some fun.

Enjoy your weekend!

If I could go on one holiday again it would be______

To Cala Longa in Ibiza – I visited there last July and it was such a relaxing holiday and I really enjoyed it.

Where would yours be?

What is good about your day?

Today I have enjoyed a nice long walk in the countryside. During the week I am always itching to be outside and enjoy a walk but because of the dark cold night lately I haven’t been able to go out as much as I would like. But as it is the weekend I have been able to enjoy a nice relaxing walk and even had a coke in a cosy pub as well….perfect Sunday.

What is good about your day? 🙂

Take Back Tuesday – Exeter

Just before Christmas I visited Exeter for the day, I have never been to Exeter before, but my friend was born there and always said how nice it was, so I had always wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

The first thing that we did was going shopping – they have a massive amount of shops including my favourite Urban Outfitters so that instantly won me round. There are lots of mainstream shops but also a lot of independent ones so there is a good mix of shops available to look in. there was loads of café, bars and restaurants to go in all around the city.

The German Market was also on when we were there which made me like it even more as there was a great Christmassy feel to it. The city did not seem busy for a city if that makes sense which is why I think I enjoyed it so much. There is a lot to do but not the overwhelming business that puts you off cities, so it was very enjoyable.

We walked alongside Exeter Quayside and look in the cute little shops along the waterfront. I could only imagine how nice it must be down there in the summer.

The city is very vibrant and has a lot going on and if I had my choice again, I would definitely look at going there if I could as it seem like the perfect place for students.

I would highly recommend a trip to Exeter if you get the chance.

Take Back Tuesday – Dawlish

About a month ago I went down to Devon and visited a place called Dawlish. I stayed in a really cute hotel right next to the beach which was lovely. I had a lovely hotel room and the breakfast the next day was delicious. I only stayed in Dawlish for one night, but I managed to see all the sights and have a little wonder around the town and even have a go on the arcade.

The one strange thing about Dawlish is that there is a train track running along the beach separating the town from the beach. The beach is not massive, but it was so nice to see the sea at this time of year even if it did rain quite a lot. We walked along the beach and enjoyed throwing pebbles into the sea.

There are a few places to eat in Dawlish, we ate at a Chinese restaurant just of the beach front. The food was really nice and would recommend going there as the gave very generous portions.

I have never been to Dawlish before and I would like to go again in the Summer so I can see the town at its best. I really like Devon and I hope I get to go back in the summer to see more of the sights.

Autumn :)

The temperature has dropped and the leaves have started to fall so it only means one thing…. Autumn has arrived!
I think Autumn may be my favourite season; everything looks so pretty covered in the yellow, brown and red leaves.
I love being able to wear jumpers, hats and scarves and being wrapped up all warm and cosy. As you know I love going on walks anyway but being able to wear wellies and walk through puddles and mud in a forest is so much fun in Autumn.
As much as I love being outside in this weather I also love being inside when it is raining outside and being able to snuggle up and watch a film and watch the water trickle down the windows.
Autumn also involves bonfire night and Halloween so what is not to like about it. I especially love bonfire night as we have always gone to bonfire night displays with my dad. Also all the shops start to sell chocolate and Toffee apples at this time so I will have to make sure I treat us to one at some point over the next few weeks as they remind me of being a child.
As Autumn is only just beginning I am really forward to making the most of it.
