Clink restaurant

Clink Cardiff

You might remember that a few months ago I went to Clink Café in Manchester. Clink is run by a charity that helps prisoners train for the hospitality sector and reduces reoffending. There are a few restaurants in UK, and one of them is Clink Cardiff. We’ve just had to go for lunch there because […]

Entrance to Tredegar House

Tredegar House

Tredegar House looked very impressive and I wanted to visit it. So, on our holiday in Wales, we stopped by. Unfortunately we didn’t allow for a long time to visit the house and we didn’t get to stay as long as we wanted to. The fact that the staff and volunteers there were so nice […]

Anna Loka - Restaurant inside

Anna Loka

Anna Loka is a vegan restaurant in Cardiff. I was excited to try vegan food, so I’ve added this restaurant to my to-go-to list in our holiday in Wales. I saw on their website that Anna means food and Loka means world in Sansksrit. They boast that this it the first vegan restaurant in Cardiff, […]

Ashmolean. Outside

Ashmolean

Ashmolean is University of Oxford’s museum of art and archaeology, founded in 1683. Is free to visit and is worth visiting it. If you want to see more about their special exhibitions and details about the museum, you can check the website. The museum hosts many fascinating artefacts and I picked a few to show […]

The Turnpike, Pub in Oxfordshire

The Turnpike

I’ve been to The Turnpike recently, a gorgeous old pub in Oxfordshire. I passed by it a few times and I was curious how it looks inside. We got there at 11am, too early to have lunch and we also had a big breakfast, as we always do. The Turnpike is over 200 years old, […]

Festus at Blenheim. Lots of Pictures

Festus loves walking on the Blenheim estates. There is a lovely park and on that day, we went a bit further than usual. Festus sometimes likes to get his toy with him and that was one of the days. As you can see in the pictures, he didn’t let go of his toy. Very similar […]

Dream Big Advent Calendar

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know that I love the Body Shop products and this year I bought the Dream Big Advent Calendar, well its full name is Dream Big This Christmas Ultimate Advent Calendar, but that seems like a very long title. I wanted to buy it and then I […]

Solar Farm

September

This month was very busy. My husband and I went to visit a few fascinating locations opened for Heritage Open Days. On top of that, I’ve started University last week with the first teaching session and a full day in which I had the chance of getting to know better my new colleagues and the […]

Kennington Primary School

Kennington Primary School

This is the last post on the places I’ve been to for Heritage Open Days this year. Kennington Primary School was one of the most unusual buildings I’ve seen. It was a bit far from us, but it was worth it. This classroom is called the “Bubble” and it was the first fully plastic building […]

Victorian Lecture Theatre

Liverpool Medical Institution

I went to the Liverpool Medical Institution many times since I moved here because they always seem to organize very interesting activities for events such as Light Night. This month I booked tickets for the tour they were offering with the Heritage Open Days event. They offer tours for groups at low prices, but that […]
