Eats & Explores: 3 Nights in Athens, Greece

Bestie @jen.on.tour and I recently enjoyed a mini break to the Greek Capital, Athens. We had a brilliant trip and it was super convenient (and cheap) to visit from Bristol, so here are some of my (our!) recommendations… Transport Flights from Bristol are very reasonable, depending on the time of year. We booked in October…

Explores: Kinky Boots UK Tour, Bristol Hippodrome

I love musicals. One of my earliest memories is going to the Gwyn Hall in Neath (where I’m from) and watching the local amateur dramatic society performing South Pacific,  afterwards singing ‘I’m going to wash that man right out my hair’ for weeks on end. (Getting some strange looks, being only five). I’ve seen Wicked…

Eats & Explores: A Night in Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire

Accomodation: The Cawdor Hotel Where: Rhosmaen St, Llandeilo SA19 6EN The Cawdor came onto my radar a few years ago when my mum stayed there – she raved about a free upgrade to a four poster bed and the exceptional food. So when I spotted a special offer on their Facebook page just before Christmas,…

Eats: Lido Spa & Restaurant, Bristol

We had a voucher (shock!) that we had purchased during their Advent event in December, which for £30 per couple entitled us…

Eats: The Ox, Clifton

Last month I went for a birthday meal with @jen.on.tour to The Ox on Whiteladies Road, Bristol. We had previously purchased an incredible voucher – £70 for three courses for two inc a bottle of wine – which was available over Christmas, and as there were no restrictions as to when it could be used…

Eats: Sfoglina Rina, Bologna

I’m lucky enough to have a close Italian friend that went to university in the foodie heaven that is Bologna (which also happens to be the oldest continually operating university in the world), so when I knew we would be going there on our Italian summer road trip, I had to ask for recommendations. Sfoglina…

Eats: Bottomless Pizza and Prosecco @ Sup & Chow, Cheltenham

Last weekend, I went to Cheltenham for a belated birthday meal for bestie @jen.on.tour.  As a fellow pizza fiend, she’d been wanting to try the ‘Unlimited Pizza and Prosecco’ deal at self styled community pub Sup & Chow for quite some time – and what better excuse to go than a birthday?! The Deal It’s…
