Clifton Suspension Bridge

Clifton Suspension Bridge

I knew that on my visit to Bristol, Clifton Suspension Bridge was one of the places I wanted to see. After watching quite a few of TV shows about Brunel, I knew I had to add it on my to-visit list. Because we’ve visited in November, we didn’t get the chance to get a free […]

The Shipwreck Museum & Heritage Centre

The Shipwreck Museum & Heritage Centre

You might wonder what can you see at The Shipwreck Museum? My husband and I did too, this is why we’ve decided to visit it. The one we went to is in Cornwall, in Charlestown. Charlestown is a lovely village, that is also the place where Poldark is filmed. Sadly I’ve lost some pictures, and […]

Wake-up Light Philips

Wake-up Light Philips

New Christmas Sandwiches at Co-op

New Christmas Sandwiches at Co-op

I was asked if I fancy trying the new Christmas Sandwiches from Co-op. Obviously, I said I will. It’s not too early to talk about Christmas. My husband bought a pack of mince pies, we talked about the day we’ll decorate the Christmas tree, so having some Christmas themed sandwiches was only appropriate. As my […]

Pendennis Castle

Pendennis Castle

Pendennis Castle is a lovely castle owned and managed by English Heritage in Cornwall. It was built by Henry VIII, between 1539 to 1545, when he was concerned about invasion from the Catholic kingdoms of Europe.
