Wishing I was back on a boat in the middle of the sea
On Friday I went to explore Glastonbury; I have always wanted to go to Glastonbury festival but so far have not been lucky enough to go. A family member suggested going there when the festival was not on as the town is such a lovely place and there are quite a few unique shops to look around.
So we planned to travel down on Friday and see what Glastonbury was all about. We got there about 10.00am and we were instantly met with really cute unique shops to look in. There are definite hippie vibes in Glastonbury and it is such a welcoming environment. There are quite a few differently places to get food and sit outside and just enjoy the lively town. There are load of alley ways off the main street with lots of craft shop and crystal shops. Glastonbury is quite a spiritual place and there are lots of places you can go for psychics readings or healing readings. There is a goddess temple which we went in and it was quite a unique experience.
After looking round the shops and enjoying some food we decided to walk and go and find The Tor. Here is a picture of The Tor:-
From the town it looking really far away but once we started walking and found directions to it we realised it wasn’t far at all. Once we made it to the top the view was amazing and we spent a good hour at the top admiring the view and enjoying the sunshine. At the Top of The Tor there was swarms of ladybirds flying around. I have never seen anything like it, there was literally 1000’s of them flying around. At one point I think there was about 25 of them on me. It was an amazing sight to see but I have no idea what makes them all gather up there or whether there are always a number of them up there or whether it had just happened that day.
Afterwards we enjoyed some lovely food in a nice cosy pub before heading back home. I absolutely loved Glastonbury and would recommend going to have a look around. I now would like to go even more when the festival is on so hopefully one day I will manage to get some tickets.
So this week I was lucky to have the week off work. I didn’t have much planed but I knew I needed a break so I book a week of annual leave. Work has been really busy this last month and I knew it was only likely to get busier so it was the perfect time to escape and have some me time. I was thinking of going away but instead decided to stay in the UK and go on a few little road trips but also just take some time to relax and try to figure out what my next step was going to be.
I did have an interview towards the start of the week which I was quite nervous about so I was glad to get it out of the way early on in the week. I am one of those people who get ridiculously nervous for an interview so I thought this interview would help to give me a bit more experience. The job was for a similar job to what I do know just in a different location. The interview went really well but I didn’t really get any significant vibes about the position and the way it was portrayed to me made me realise that If I was offered it I would decline it this time because it just didn’t feel right. I am glad that I went however because it has given me a little bit more confidence with interviews and has helped me to figure out what it is I am looking for in employment.
It has been nice to take this week as it comes and not have to rush around every day to make sure everything is done. I have been able to fully relax and enjoy my week off. Luckily my boyfriend had the same week off so we have been able to spend a lot more time together that what we usually do which has been really nice.
I am back to work on Monday which at this very moment I am not looking forward to but I know by the time Monday is here I will be raring to go. I will be back full of energy ready to tackle the week ahead.
I was lucky enough to spend a couple of weeks in Sydney a few years ago and it was so much more than I was expecting. We stayed slightly outside the main city but we were close enough to walk in everyday and explore. Getting to see the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge was so exciting because they are such iconic sights to see in Sydney.
I stayed in a couple of different hostels during my stay here and got to meet load of different people from around the world.
I went on an excursion to the Blue Mountains which was really cool and the sights were amazing. It was so surreal one minute being in the middle of Sydney and the next up the Blue Mountains. I really enjoyed walking through the mountains and seeing the views. Although I was quite worried I would come across a massive spider but luckily this did not happen.
I used the hop on and off boat rides so that I could go and visit Bondi and Manley Beaches. I have always wanted to go to Bondi beach as I have seen it on so many tv shows. It really was amazing and being there really made me want to learn to surf as I spent most of the day watching the surfers showing off in the sea.
I also enjoyed visiting the Sydney Botanical Garden…one thing Australia does really well is their botanical gardens. Every city that I went to had amazing gardens which I really enjoyed because I am more of a country girl than a city girl so it was really nice to be able to escape the city and relax in the botanical gardens.
I was lucky enough to be there when the Sydney Vivid Lights were there and on the evening you could wonder around the city and there was lots of different light displays and water displays. It was a really enjoyable event and I have never seen anything quite like it before in my life so it was really special.
