2020 was supposed to be my year of travel and concerts. I booked a trip to Manchester and Paris, and had to cancel both at a moments notice. I was most disappointed about the Paris trip because I’ve fantasized about going there since I was a little girl. I had everything ready to go, and then the virus got worse and I had to book a trip home instead. Although I was upset about it for a short while after, I began using this time to get excited about all of the travels I want to take when airports open again. Here are some places on my wishlist that I’m headed to (I HAVE to!!) as soon as I can.
Milano is one of the most magical places I’ve ever been to (especially during the holiday season). For as long as I could remember, I’ve dreamed of going to Italy and eating my favorite foods, drinking wine, and shopping. Sadly I only had a weekend to do all of that, but it was one of the best weekends of my life. A friend of mine was living there for a few months, so I bought a plane ticket, planned my trip, and left London on Black Friday weekend.
Everything just seemed oddly familiar to me, like I’d visited before. It was exactly what I thought it would be like, yet nothing like what I thought at the same time. But I must say, the food was EXACTLY what I thought it would be like. Fresh, flavorful and to DIE for. Best pasta and bruschette I’ve ever had.
There was so much culture and history everywhere that I went, and I could just feel it there. Everything was so beautiful and it sometimes felt like I stepped back in time.
It’s definitely a place I want to visit again in the future, and hopefully you and I both will get the change to tour the rest of Italy! And of course, eat all the food.
I recently spend 24 hours in Manchester visiting my sister, and I was so surprised by how my I enjoyed. First and foremost, let’s talk about the Intu Trafford Center shopping mall. THE most amazing mall I’ve ever seen/been to in my life. Not to mention, that I found a stall with the best candy floss I’ve tasted. My sister and I haven’t spent much time together before this trip, so it was nice to do a bit of retail therapy, get lunch, and take busses and ubers all over Manchester for a day.
Later that night, we went mini golfing at the Roxy Ballroom, which was one of the hardest mini golf coursed I’ve done, but it was so fun and I really enjoyed it.
took a quick day trip to Bristol and fell in love.. here are some things I saw there
I’ve never been to Bristol before this, and didn’t really know what to expect. It was suck a laid back and genuinely cool place and I loved the difference in the vibe compared to London. It was full of creative art and skateboarders all over town. Below are some of the places I explored!
Just a few snaps from my second trip to the British Museum x
The British Museum has the coolest ancient Egyptian collection I’ve ever seen at a museum. For those of you who don’t know, ancient Egyptian history has been a big interest of mine since I was a little kid. This is my second trip to the museum, so I decided to have a look at everything else they had to offer, outside of the Egyptian section. So here are a few snaps of what I saw.
I spent my Easter this year at this beautiful park I randomly came across while exploring. Regent’s Park is a popular leisure spot for Londoners on their holidays and days off. Because it’s spring, the beautiful flowers have bloomed and it was one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been to.
Cirque De Soleil shows are my favorite shows to go see live. I’ve only been to two, but they’re so much fun. My mom came up to London to visit me so I planned for us to see the Totem show. There was a lot going on, but to make a long story short it was about everything in the world. Animals, tribes, evolution, different cultures and everything in between. Here are some photos I took before the show.
Over my spring break I took a trip to Disney’s Magic Kingdom for the last time before I turn 20 (an official adult!) It was the most fun and I’m always so glad to go and live like I’m 10 years old again.
