Holiday up north - North Sea

February

February was a very busy month, starting with a short holiday up north, where we’ve had a wonderful time. I’ve already blogged about the places we’ve been to, see the links for most of them in the round-up picture & details. We’ve played pool and foosball in the game room at the camping site. It […]

ASOS Boots

ASOS Boots

With the beautiful warm weather we have now, you might be surprised that I’m talking about my new pairs of ASOS Boots. Well, I just bought them and I wanted to share my finds on my blog. It’s been a while since I’ve made my last fashion blog post. I wanted to order these before […]

Vegan burger at Beefeater

Beefeater

I’ve been a vegetarian for more than 11 years and my husband eats meat-free as well. So you wouldn’t expect us to go to a place that is called Beefeater for dinner, would you? Well, it all started in our holiday up north last month, we were near a Beefeater and we had a look […]

Cutty Sark. Seen from outside

Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark is a well known ship, transformed into a museum at Greenwich, in London. I’ve seen it the first time I’ve been in London, back in 2012, but I didn’t visit the museum. After our recent holidays, where we’ve visited SS Great Britain in Bristol and the less known HMS Trincomalee up north, in […]

Russia, Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace

Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace

There are three different attractions that can be visited at Buckingham Palace: Queen’s Gallery, The Royal Mews, and The State Rooms. On the day, Sunday, we went to Buckingham Palace only the Queen’s Gallery was open. The State Rooms are open this year from 20 July to 29 September. As it happened, the Royal Mews […]

HMS Trincomalee

Museums in Hartlepool

My husband and I recently visited two museums in Hartlepool, National Museum of the Royal Navy & HMS Trincomalee and Museum of Hartlepool. The second one is free, but there is a fee for the first one. Even so, it’s worth it and, even more, you can have access to the museum for an year […]

Bag of Nails London. Outside

Bag of Nails London

Bag of Nails is a pub in London, a few minutes from Buckingham Palace. We’ve had lunch there before visiting the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham. I will talk about that in another post, in a few days. The pub is lovely and it was very busy, as one can imagine. The first historical record of […]

Axe throwing

Axe Throwing

What can be more romantic for Valentine’s Day than to go Axe Throwing in Manchester at Whistle Punks? Well, I imagine most women (and a lot of men) would reply with something else, but not us. I saw axe throwing in the south, when I was looking for things to do/see in our holiday, but […]

Transporter Bridge

Tees Transporter Bridge

After making a post about 3 Museums in Middlesborough, you might be curious why I’m dedicating an entire post to the Transporter Bridge over Tees. I do that because it’s a great piece of engineering. Before booking our short holiday in Middlesborough, I didn’t know about the bridge. I’ve seen it in a documentary, but […]

Preston Park Museum

3 Museums in Middlesborough

I’ve named my post 3 Museums in Middlesborough, but the truth is that only two are in Middlesborough and the other is in Stockton-on-Tees. I can’t imagine a better way to talk about these locations though, as 3 Museums in County Durham would have sounded a bit odd. Usually I would post about each museum […]
