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 […]

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 […]
