You all know I love a city break. Let’s walk 35 miles in three days and pretend we’re not tired? OK, cool! But seriously, city breaks are amazing, you cram so much into a long weekend and just like that, you’ve seen a whole new city, experienced new foods and had a load of fun with your favourite people. Here are my nine recommendations on what to do in Prague.
I’ve started travelling a lot more within the past few years and visiting loads of new cities, both in the UK and Europe. I’ve discovered how much I love being a ‘travel blogger’ and how useful it is to other people to be able to read reviews of places and see real-life images of hotels, resorts and places to eat and drink. We always, always read numerous reviews about hotels, cafes and things to do before we hit a new city or holiday destination! I follow so many travel bloggers, I’ll do a post on my favourites soon but, if you’re a travel blogger or Instagrammer, I’ve found the best hashtags to make sure your content is seen throughout the channels and profiles that you want it to be.
With the announcement that Nottingham might be getting its own street food market (yaaaas!), I thought it’d be sweet to round up some of the best street food markets and pop-ups in the UK right now. It’s safe to say that we’re definitely very excited to be getting our very own street food market because it’s something that we feel Notts has been missing for a while. We get the occasional pop-up here and there but nothing as monumental as some of the other street food markets in the UK’s other cities like Manchester and London! Here’s the run-down of the best out there at the moment…
I love finding new coffee shops and cafes when I head away because I love to recommend great places for people to go to when they travel, that’s one of the best things about being a travel and food blogger, the two go hand in hand!
My newest favourite is 3FE. 3FE Coffee were founded by Colin Harmon, an ex-trustee officer for a professional investment fund who worked in Dublin’s financial district. He realised that finance wasn’t really for him and in 2008, quit his job and got a job as a barista and now owns two coffee shops in Dublin city centre and creates some pretty tasty drinks and awesome food. 3FE have locations at Grand Canal St and Sussex Terrace.
Over numerous city breaks, holidays and sunshine-seeking trips I’ve learnt a few things about travelling that I’ve turned into some simple rules that I follow every time I go away to make the break run as smoothly as possible! We’ve recently been to Dublin which you would have seen if you follow me on Instagram and I definitely used all of these tips before and during the time that we were away.
London. Our crazy capital city! I love London in small chunks. A day trip, a weekend break or even just when I have to pop down for a working day occasionally. That’s enough for me! London is so busy that I can only take it in small-ish doses but I always enjoy it when I go because I’m always doing something new, seeing a different sight or eating at a recently-opened restaurant or coffee shop that we’ve spied on Instagram!
I headed to London this weekend to see some of my best friends, do some shopping and also attend a blogger networking event. I love a quick trip to a different city and I had the best time. Check out my Instagram with some snaps from the weekend if you fancy! I explored some new places and absolutely loved Hoxton & Hackney but definitely found that I was missing some essentials that would have made my trip a lot easier.
I only arrived home from Greece about two weeks ago but we’ve already booked a short break to Barcelona and I’m so excited. I’ve already been looking up the top things to do so if anyone’s got any recommendations for things to do, places to eat etc I’d love to hear them.
The latest series of MIC is over and it was pretty much the same as the other series, am I right? But, I still love it, I still watch it and it’s all about that little bit of escapism with reality TV that I love. But, the thing with Made In Chelsea (over others like TOWIE etc) is the fact that I always want to go to every bar, cafe, restaurant, and club that they head to in London because they always look amazing! Here are my top 3 spots that you can head to in London in order to have an MIC weekend.
