We are big believers in the fact that you don’t actually have to travel out of the UK to find adventure and amazing experiences. Britain is home to some of the most beautiful coastlines, amazing historical sites and a plethora of rolling green hills.
Don’t want to miss out on having the ultimate Great British trip? Below are some of of recommendations of some of the most beautiful places that you can visit!
Location: New York City
As this was our third and fourth times visiting New York we wanted to find a few new places that were off the beaten track. After extensive research and stalking on Instagram we found a food market and knew that we had to go! Smorgasborg is a food market in Brooklyn that has two locations, Williamsburg on Saturdays and Prospect Park on Sundays. We visited the Prospect Park site. AND. IT. WAS. GREAT!
We have been to New York a few times now, having done all the tourists spots before, this time was a little more relaxed. From our research before going the main things we wanted to go to were restaurants. Literally all apart from two items were food related. So here are our recommendations for where to eat and drink, all are a little more off the beaten track but so worth it!
Ever since moving to London it feels like we have done more reading than ever. It has become part of our daily routine to read a book on the tube or the overground. Reading is also a large part of how we relax when we are away. Ever since we were children we have always been encouraged to read especially when we went on holiday. One of the best things about going away was visiting the book shop and deciding on a couple of new books to take with you! So here are our pick of books for the summer that we have either read or will be reading.
A couple of weeks ago when the weather was glorious we decided it was time for our first ever trip to Brighton. In typical British fashion the weather decided to be less than its best but that didn’t stop us from having an amazing time and gorging ourselves on some amazing food.
So last Monday Alice set off for the Greek island of Zakynthos, or some of you may know it as Zante! My first trip abroad of the year and my first ‘beach’ holiday in years (we tend to do a lot more city breaks). We have been to the Greek islands a couple of times with friends and many times with family. Zakynthos is one of the islands that we have never visited so this was a whole new experience. I was once again travelling with some old friends and we couldn’t wait to see the sun (especially after the cold spell we had in the UK) and relax.
