New cocktail menu at The Pen and Pencil

This week I’ve been invited to sample the new cocktail menu at The Pen and Pencil in Northern Quarter, Manchester. It was the first time I’ve been to The Pen and Pencil and the place looks great. I liked the decor and it was busy on a weekday. Hubby and I had no issues finding […]

It sounded great and I was eager to attend the event. It took place on the rooftop terrace bar at Black Dog Ballroom NWS. Black Dog Ballroom NWS is their […]

Vapiano Manchester

I attended a blogger event at Vapiano Manchester a few days ago. It involved tasting different dishes while blind folded. It was so much fun! I’ve been to Vapiano before, but in Stuttgart, while visiting a friend in Germany a few years ago. He liked their food a lot, as he is vegetarian too and […]

Imperial War Museum, Manchester

Although Manchester is close to us, we didn’t visit the museums as we tend to go further on our road trips or days out. Finally we went to see the Imperial War Museum and I like it. I should say I liked most of it, as you’ll see at the end of the post. The […]

The chef is vegetarian and opened the restaurant in Manchester in 2011. It was a success and he opened a […]

Museums At Night, Manchester

Is the first time I’m going to Manchester for the Museums at Night. There were a lot of venues involved, but there isn’t enough time to see more than 2-3 venues. We’ve been to Manchester Museum and Whitworth. I never been to this museums, so all was new. We’ve stopped at Manchester Museum. I liked […]


Yesterday we should have been in Glasgow, but the car battery died the night before. All the stores were closed at that time and we had  to wait to get the new battery in the morning. As we had to be there early for an event, we’ve cancelled the trip to Glasgow. We’ve ended up […]
