Ahhhh, Leeds. I love this place! I mentioned in my first post when we originally explored it how much I enjoyed the city. I love how it feels fairly clean, (for a big city!), the shopping is awesome, there’s tonnes of places to eat and drink – from the chains that we all know and love if you need something to rely on to awesome independent places that you can discover and love forever.
Well, I say Leeds because technically it is in Leeds. But, it is not in the city centre. Only visit these guys if you’re driving or you’re going to the student-y side of Leeds anyway. Don’t take a £13 round trip in an Uber for one like we did. Doh. (Lol, just read that back, not an intentional doughnut pun, I’m just gonna leave that in there…). It was almost worth it though because these guys are insanely delicious.
Ok, ok, maybe a bit click bait-y but it’s totally true. Leeds is the only city I’ve been to on a city break that I could see myself living in. We’ve been to Amsterdam, Dublin, Barcelona (up there!), Manchester, London and loads more in the few years that we’ve been together and Leeds was definitely my favourite city break.
Located just around the corner from Trinity Leeds Mrs Atha’s is the absolute perfect place to cosy up with a coffee in the winter and hide from the rain or bask outside in the sunshine with an iced latte and a gorgeous cake in the summer time. Mrs Atha’s is an all year round, seriously cool, amazingly creative, mega tasty coffee shop smack bang in the centre of Leeds and you need to go there next time you’re in town.
Dry shampoo, baby wipes, a little bit of sea-salt spray, loads of anti-bacterial stuff and a little bit of Avene Eau Thermale is the perfect festival survival kit. Forget the tent, I just need my Toni & Guy Sea-Salt Spray! Sporks have been my favourite piece of cutlery ever since I was in the cadets and doing Duke of Edinburgh, they’re an ingenious bit of kit that house a spoon, fork and a serrated edge for choppin’ and cuttin’!
