Backyard Adventures 6 // Woolacombe

I’m sure many people can empathise with me when I say I don’t get to travel anywhere near as much as I would like. Due to university and money, I’m left with very little opportunity to travel abroad. But with every cloud there is a silver lining, which is why I’ve revived the Backyard Adventure series! I know, I know, it’s barely been gone! But I recently went to Woolacoombe and I realised how much of England I have left to show you…

The ULTIMATE South West of England Roadtrip

So it’s the end of the Backyard Adventures series, I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to conclude but I’ve been struggling with university deadlines and it’s been very hard to write any blog content! I thought a fitting conclusion would be planning an awesome road trip around all my favourite places surrounding my home. There are so many destinations that I wanted to include that I have created three different trips. A short one which can take place over a weekend, a medium trip which would take around a week and then a long one which I think would take around two weeks. So  whether you are aren’t able to go abroad this summer and still seeking adventure or for those of you who are looking to broaden your UK horizons outside of London then LOOK NO FURTHER! I am here to present you with what I believe to be the best of the South West.

Backyard Adventures 5 // Bristol

Bristol, one of my favourite cities in the world. I guess I’m not alone in my opinion considering it was voted number one city in the UK. I suppose I started loving Bristol in 2010 when I started working for Hollister. My 16 year old self was ecstatic about working in a city after spending the majority of my life in the sheltered countryside. Bristol held mystery, activity, anonymity. If any of you have ever lived in the countryside I’m sure you’ll be able to empathise, but in small towns and villages, everyone seems to know you and your business. Bristol was a completely new adventure to me, it’s kind of a London meets countryside city if you get me.

Backyard Adventures 3, St. Ives

Considering Charlie and I didn’t do so much for Valentine’s day and it’s our one year anniversary this weekend (yay!), we decided to take a weekend trip to St. Ives. St. Ives will be the third place to be featured in the backyard adventures series as it is located just two hours away from my home in the beautiful county of Cornwall.

Backyard Adventures 2, Bath

I don’t know if any of you will be able to empathise with me, but you know when a place is so close you don’t feel the need to explore it immediately? Well, with most of the places I am listing in Backyard Adventures, this is definitely the case. I keep postponing it, promising myself I will find the time to truly explore but I never do. This blog series has given me the perfect opportunity and motivation to go outside and explore where I live. For the first in the series, I wrote about my high school town Cheddar and next up is Bath, my university town.

Backyard Adventures 1, Cheddar.

I am a country girl, always have been and probably always will be. I live in the heart of Somerset amidst with the cows, sheep and tractors. So I am going to take you on a tour to the sights around my home, for the next couple of weeks I thought I’d write a series of beautiful places in England that you (yes, you) have to visit.

London; China Town and The Experimental Bar.

I love London! I always have and I take any opportunity I have to go back. My excuse last Thursday was my good friend Holly had come back from China for two weeks. Holly is maybe one of the best people I have ever met (that is for another post) and I had to see her. Due to her hectic schedule, we decided it would be best if I headed up to London for a night of adventures and fun.
