Hello everyone and happy Monday! I hope you are all well, I’m currently in the middle of so much uni work I’m not sure where to begin tackling my never ending to-do list! As my last term is flying by, it has got me thinking about holidays and where I want to visit. So I thought I would make a mini Bucket List here and share with you a few of the places I’d love to visit!

Day Trip to Bristol | Travel Diary

Recently my parents and I went for a day trip to Bristol. Bristol isn’t far from where we live and so we took the train over, ending up at Bristol Train Station which isn’t far from the harbour, aquarium, we the curious and of course Cabot Circus shopping centre. When we went to Bristol Gromit Unleashed 2 was still running, which is a trail around Bristol of different Gromits, Wallace’s and Feathers McGraw. Which if you didn’t know are characters from a British cult classic Wallace and Gromit, an inventor and his dog! The trail raises money for charities with the help of the sculptures, with 60 to find dotted around.

The trail started in June and ended at the beginning of September. Whilst in Bristol with my parents we walked towards the harbour, passing St Mary Radcliffe Church as we went. We stopped outside to take a picture with Gromit and to go inside the church.

A Trip to Waterperry | Travel Diary

At the beginning of September the UK had a beautiful weekend, and to make the most of it I went with a friend to Waterperry, which is a village just outside of Oxford. I came across this little village whilst scrolling though Instagram, I don’t remember who posted a picture there, but I looked it up on the maps and it was just over an hours drive away. It has been on an open tab on my phone, along with many other things, reminding me of somewhere I wanted to visit.

Making the most of this beautiful weather we made our way over to the village, which has a garden centre and gardens. The garden centre wasn’t very busy and we set off on exploring. To get into the gardens you have to go through two shops and buy your tickets for the garden in the second. For £7.50 each to get into the gardens, which we didn’t realise before we got there, you got an all day pass to the gardens.

Summer 2018

This summer has been an eventful one, so I thought I would do a post I have never done before: summarising my summer. In the three months I had off for uni so much has happened in such a short space of time. I went from dating someone to being single again. I have travelled to the beaches of  Weymouth and visiting Scotland for the first time. I got a promotion at work, I have tried things I never thought I would and it has flown by!

Starting off with June I finished my HNC in the first week with final hand in for our assessments the week after. I have never been so stressed but also super proud of myself. I had such a great time with the end of year show, the theme was phobias so we really go to experiment and play with makeup. I absolutely loved my first year, which you can read more about my first year as an ‘older’ student here.
