Spending 24 Hours in Bath: Travel Diaries...

1 Apr 2019

Hello everyone, 

At the weekend, myself and Sam took a trip down to Bath, as Sam was DJing at one of my lovely friend Hannah's Charity Ball. Sam drove us down on Friday afternoon and we set up his kit at Bath racecourse, which was such a lovely venue. By the time we got there and had set up it was almost time to go out. So we got ready for the ball. I actually wore one of my mums dresses which she kindly let me borrow. It was such a great night and Hannah did such a great job of organising the event. 

On Saturday we went to possibly one of the cutest cafes I have ever been to. If you have ever been to Peggy Porschen, you will absolutely love this place. It is called Sweet Little Things, and sells anything from coffee, to cake to breakfast and brunch. It is such a lovely place and the decor is just beautiful. It very much so reminded me of the Peggy porschen Bakery in London, however, the best thing about it was that it was so affordable. I was expecting it to be very pricey as the place was so cute and Instagrammable, however, it was really well priced. I had the avocado on toast and Sam had the full english breakfast and the food was so good. Sam also had the green super smoothie and I had the chai latte which was also amazing. This is the perfect place to go for coffee and cake as they do some incredible cake...

We then took a stroll around Bath and I must say it is such a beautiful place. If you ever get the chance to go there I would highly recommend and I would highly reccomened the Sweet Little Things Cafe. 

My Outfit

I thought I would also share with you where my outfit is from as I had quite a few questions about it on my Instagram. So my trousers are from Zara, my top is from Primark and was just £4, wow. My sunnies were also just £2 from Primark and my shoes are from New Look, and my bag is from Topshop. My watch is also from Miss Selfridge.

I also vlogged my trip with Sam, if you would like to watch, here is the link to my YouTube channel...

I really hope you enjoyed this little Travel diary. Have you ever been to Bath, if so where would you reccomened?

A Guide To visiting Venice- Travel Diaries

17 Mar 2019

Hello everyone,

I have been wanting to share with you my tips/ guide to visiting Venice for a while now. I did share a few photos from the trip a while back on my blog, however I didn't really go into too much detail. But I thought it would be a great idea to share with you a little travel log/guide every time I go on a trip and make this like a little series, which I think I am going to call 'Travel Diaries'. I really hope these help you and give you some useful tips if you are planing a trip to Venice...

1. Plan your Route 

Now this is one of the major tips I would definitely reccomened doing. Venice has so many side streets and narrow walk ways that all look very similar, so myself and sam had to use our phones a lot to navigate our way around. I would suggest having your phone fully charged just in case you get lost or can't find your way back to your accommodation. Planning your route would also be another great way to not get lost in the side streets, make a little plan of where you want to go, how long it takes and take a little look at the route, this will make it so much easier.

2.  Plan your spending funds

This is one way that you can save money and also make sure you don't over spend. Venice is often seen to be very expensive, which it definitely can be. However, it depends on where abouts you decide to eat. The closer you are to San Marco Square, the more expensive it can be. However, if you find some places/ restaurants down the side streets, they can actually be relatively well priced and you will find you are not spending too much money. Giving your self an allowance a day will definitely make it easier to not spend too much money. I would reccomened 50 Euros a day, for Breakfast, lunch and dinner, and possibly coffee and cake included in this. However, if you plan to go on a Gondola ride, I would definitely plan a little more. 

3.  Walk Everywhere

Now there is an opportunity to get the water taxis, However, myself and Sam found it easiest to walk everywhere. This was what worked for us as often you would have to wait for the water taxis to arrive which could mean you are waiting around when you could actually just use this time to walk to your destination. It is surprising how quickly it takes to walk to where you want to go. I wouldn't advice getting the water taxi's unless you can afford it or you need the service. Also, if you are walking everywhere, definitely wear comfortable shoes, I wore sandals and these proved to be quite comfortable

4. Treat yourself

If you are travelling to Venice, I would 100% reccomened to treat yourself, maybe just one night for a nice meal with beautiful views. Myself and Sam had a wonderful meal on our first night over looking the Rialto Bridge, which is one of the oldest bridges in Venice, the Gondolas were riding past on the grand canal and it was just a beautiful moment, I had honestly never experienced anything like it. I would definitely recommend treating yourself one night. 

5. Be weary and Look on Trip Advisor before you eat

Now your probably wondering why on earth this is one of my tips. This may not apply to everyone who has visited Venice, however myself and Sam encountered a little trouble which I wanted to share with you just to make those aware. We ordered fish from the specials board which we believed to be around 12 euros, however, the bill came and it was 66 euros just for Sam's fish. We did not see that on the specials board it said per pound, so be careful that you may have added extras onto your bill when you eat, including bread, olives and service charge. I 1000000% would say to look on trip advisor before you eat anywhere, myself and Sam made this mistake and went to this restaurant without looking it up first, and it turns out it is one of the worst restaurants in Venice.

6. Ride A gondola

This is one thing myself and Sam did not get round to doing, which I really wish we had done, and to be honest this was me being my indecisive self. If I were to go again I would 100% go on a gondola. They are pretty expensive but it is so worth the money and you can also share with other people to make it cheaper. But it would be such a magical experience and I would highly reccomened doing it.

I really hope you enjoyed this first edition of the Travel Diaries, myself and Sam had the best time in Venice and I would highly reccomened visiting as it is just a beautiful experience, unlike anything I have experienced before...

See you next time
