Why we have chosen to go to Spain this summer

We have started thinking about summer already and if you are anything like us you will have started thinking too! Spain is one of our favourite destinations and that is why we have chosen to visit twice this summer! There is so much to see and do that it leaves you spoilt for choice.

IT’S CLOSE
A flight from London to Barcelona or malaga is only a two hours away, so you don’t have to worry about being bored and restless on a long haul flight for a whole day. It’s simply like watching a movie – and then you’re there. This is also why things are so cheap, because it’s not far to get to. Just think in the time it takes to drive to the seaside in the UK you could be in Barcelona!

THERE IS SUN
Let’s face it, isn’t this the whole point of a holiday? The sun! Leaving the miserable weather of Britain behind and working on a tan and sip on Sangria all day long. Spain is one of Europe’s sunniest countries as it’s on the border of the Mediterranean – you can expect more than 300 days of sunshine every single year far into the winter season.

IT’S CHEAP
Spain is by far one of the best value destinations when looking in Europe. So when thinking about spending money as well as having to pay for accommodation, you could actually be saving a lot more than if you were looking to go somewhere else. You can look at Spain Villa Rentals on Interhome.co.uk for some ideas on the cost as well as the ratings. Essentially you can book somewhere of luxury for an affordable price without having to worry about it breaking the bank.

THE BEACHES
Spain has over five thousand miles of coastline, and that means that it has thousands of magical beaches that vary from golden sands and sapphire seas, to hidden rocky coves that allow you to explore the mystical marine life. Spain has been said to have the best beaches on the whole planet, so you won’t be disappointed.

CYCLING ROUTES
A place in Spain called Majorca (we visited last summer) has one of the best routes for cyclists to ride thanks to terrain that suits all kinds of cycling, as well as people’s different abilities and skill sets. Even if you’ve never ridden before, you can hire a bike and set off all around the town – we love cycling and even more so in a hot country!

THE MOUNTAINS
Spain offers you the rare mix of magnificent mountains with hidden beaches, all in the same proximity. You can expect to see lofty limestone peaks and high altitude pastures within a mere thirty minutes from the main beaches. There is so much to see as you drive down the bendy roads through the middle of mountains.

THE DANCING
Nightlife in Spain is an awfully exciting one. You can walk up the strip with the warm evening air brushing against your skin, browsing over all the different bars as well as the music coming out of them. You have a selection of the kind of vibe you would like to have each night. If you feel like having a go at a little flamenco or salsa, go to the local bar and within a matter of minutes, you’ll be pulled up onto the dancefloor!

THE FOOD
Other than the delicious Spanish wine, you can expect salty Parma ham wrapped around beautiful slices of sweet fresh melon that gives you a combination of the best tastes in your mouth. Don’t forget the array of over fourty artisan cheeses that have all been produced within the area, as well as freshly caught seafood every day and of course paella. If you’re a foodie, then you will be in your element in Spain.

THE SURFING
If you like to catch a wave, then surfing is a very popular activity in Spain because there is so much life in the waters. People travel down for that reason alone, because with hidden coves comes various winds, giving the water something to talk about. And this provides you with tremendous waves to fly on.

So what more are you waiting for? Book your holiday in Spain and have one of the best holidays you could ever imagine!

Amazing Places to Enjoy the Great Outdoors

If you’re a lover of the outdoors, there are literally endless opportunities for you to go glamping, enjoy the scenery as you go for a run, or explore clear waters whilst you recline on the beach. So, it can sometimes be difficult to choose the perfect place for your exploits, which is why we’ve decided to narrow it down for you by selecting some of the locations we would love to visit for incredible outdoor adventures (guess we better start saving)…

GLAMPING IN BALI

Glamping, as you will probably know is a combination of ‘glamourous’ and ‘camping’. Basically, it’s camping with all of the luxuries you don’t usually get when you’re just plain old camping.

One of the best places to go glamping has to be at the Sandat Glamping Tents in Ubud, Bali. Why? Because the weather is amazing, as are the views, Located in pretty paddy fields, this glamping site looks perfect for quiet relaxation in natural surroundings. There’s a communal swimming pool and a shuttle service to nearby cities, that’s if you can drag yourself away from the amazing massages.

CAMPING IN AUSTRALIA

If you prefer the normal, rougher sort of camping, then before you shop for camping gear, be sure to book a space at the Broken Hill Tourist Park in New South Wales, Why? Because you’ll get the authentic outback experience in this rather rustic location! It looks so incredible!

HIKING IN CHILE

If you’re a lover of active holidays and hiking is your thing (we love hiking) but there is nothing worse than hiking with a backpack that doesn’t fit you properly or is slightly on the old side! Why not treat yourself to a new backpack before heading to Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. This location is home to a globally-renowned trail where you will see exotic landscapes, as well as some incredible wildlife. Lay your head at the EcoCamp in Patagonia – the first sustainable dome hotel on the planet, for amazing views of the starry night sky and an experience that you will never forget.

DIVING IN THE PHILIPPINES

If you prefer to spend most of your travel time in the water than on the beach, then you’ll fall in love with the island of Malapascua just like we have. The waters are clear and blue, and you can even swim with thresher sharks wow! An idyllic paradise island in the Philippines, which we have read has incredible exotic marine life and the prettiest coral gardens. We have also been advised to go diving at night as it’s even more magical and exciting.

ROCK CLIMBING IN ENGLAND

If it’s rock climbing that floats your boat, then you don’t have to look any further than England – the Lake District to be Specific. As well as being known for its spectacular and romantic views, there are more than a few challenging mountain climbs to be found in the lake district. We would love to climb the Hardknott Pass and have been advised this is the best place to start!

GLAMPING IN SCOTLAND

It may not be as exciting as some of the above but we are going Glamping in May in Edinburgh and we are so excited. A full blog post of our review will be coming your way soon. We love the idea of Glamping especially when there is a delicious breakfast hamper to wake up to in the morning!

What are your favourite locations for enjoying the great outdoors?

Why we are going to Make Broadbeach Our Next Holiday Destination

If you’re looking for your next holiday destination, but you can’t seem to find any inspiration, let us help you out by suggesting Broadbeach in Queensland, Australia.

We visited Australia in 2016 and still look back at the pictures from our time there and wish we could teleport back to this amazing country.

Australia is always a popular destination due to its inviting tropical climate, enchanting wildlife and beautiful beaches, and it is fair to say that Broadbeach is one of the best parts of Australia, especially for travellers from the UK. Here’s why:

AMAZING BEACHES

Broadbeach is home to some 50 miles of pristine golden beaches right on the Gold Coast. Whether you live for lounging on the beach topping up your tan or you love the surf, you will not be disappointed by the offering there.

LUXURY ACCOMMODATION

The Gold Coast, which is where Broadbeach is located, is home to many luxury apartments and holiday homes, which you can find out more about now. If you’re looking to get away from it all in style, it is the perfect place to be.

THE SUN (almost) always shining

Broadbeach gets approximately 245 days of sunshine each year, which means that your holiday is unlikely to be a washout if you travel there. We have been on so many holidays expecting amazing weather and it’s just rained and been a disappointment. However in Broadbeach you’ll certainly be able to work on your tan, explore the local beaches or check out the Australian wildlife at your leisure.

THE THEME PARKS ARE FUN

The area in and around Broadbeach is home to several extremely fun and thrilling theme parks, including Dreamworld and Infinity Attraction, as you can see here. We love to be active on holiday as well as chilling so if you’re like us and looking for thrills and spills, it really is the perfect place to base yourself in Australia.

THE BLUES ON BROADBEACH FESTIVAL

The Blues on Broadbeach Festival is held each May in the suburb, and it is a fantastic party with some of the best music. The most chilled out people and the biggest spectacles you’ll see all year, oh and it’s completely free too, we love anything that’s free!

THEY LOVE THE NIGHTLIFE

Broadbeach is also home to a vast array of bars and nightclubs catering to every possible taste. Whether you prefer to sip posh cocktails in a chilled environment or you prefer to dance the night away in a dark club, Broadbeach has you covered and what’s better than drinking a cocktail in the warm weather!

EVERYTHING IS NEARBY

Whether you’re looking for cafes, nightclubs, restaurants or grocery stores, if you’re based in Broadbeach, you can find it all within easy walking distance which means that it is a very convenient destination for the average traveller. As you already know we love walking so anywhere that allows us to walk to places it’s a yes from us!

THE SEA FOOD

Eat at any beachside cafe or restaurant in Broadbeach, and you won’t be disappointed by the freshness of the seafood on offer. Seafood always tastes better on holiday and it’s no different when visiting Australia!

DESIGNER GOODS ARE IN ABUNDANCE

Broadbeach is quite an affluent suburb of Queensland, and as a result, there are lots of designer shops located there. So, if shopping is your thing, you really couldn’t find a better place to be, not in Australia anyway. Make sure you leave space in your suitcase to bring stuff back!

ITS PEACEFUL

Because it is in the suburbs, Broadbeach is also a pretty chilled out, relaxing place to be, especially if you head there off-season. So, if you’re looking for relaxation with all of the home comforts, it will outdo itself.

Put simply Broadbeach is the place to be!

Give Your Holiday Some Get Up And Go!

For a lot of people, the perfect holiday is relaxing doing nothing and getting rid of the stress of everyday life! However for us we like to do a bit of both. We sure do love a good chill day by the pool or reading on a sofa but we also love to things and start to go stir crazy otherwise! We love that a holiday is the chance to explore somewhere new and experience things we wouldn’t do on a daily basis and it is of course a chance to take some epic pictures too!

Even if you’re the kind of person who normally spends their holidays on a sun lounger doing nothing, after a while that can lose its charm. With that in mind, here are some things that you can do to give your next vacation a little get up and go!

GET OFF THE GRID

If you want something a little bit different for your next holiday, why not banish things like resorts and hotels altogether and get off the grid for a little while. This can be a wonderful way to escape from all of the constant noise that has become a part of all of our everyday lives. Leave your phone, tablet, and laptop behind and just get out and enjoy nature for a while. Sure, it might not be for everyone, but there really is nothing like getting out into the wilderness and escaping from every day life for a little while.

FIND SOMEWHERE NEW

One of the most common reasons that a lot of people end up getting bored with their holidays is that they go to the same places over and over, year after year. So why not break that pattern and find somewhere a little bit different instead? Maybe try somewhere that you’ve always been curious about but never got round to visiting, or maybe you could just head to the airport and book a flight to the first destination you see (this is on our bucket list). Sure, you could end up somewhere that you would never normally choose, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing! It just helps you get out of your comfort zone and experience some new things!

HIT THE SLOPES

If you want to find the perfect balance between pure excitement and getting to put your feet up and relax, hitting the slopes might well be your idea of heaven. Andorra ski holidays let you spend your days gliding down the sides of mountains and in the afternoons and evenings, you can just put your feet up at the lodge with a blanket and a hot drink which sounds like our idea of heaven.

Now, this isn’t to say that a super active, adrenaline-fueled holiday is somehow superior to any other, it’s just a matter of personal preference. But if you’re starting to feel as though your vacations are getting a little bit stale, then why not take a chance on something a little more exciting next time?

Four Ways To Choose The Perfect Weekend Break

If you could read our texts to each other you would see that we both just want to go away again. Christmas is over now, January blues have passed and we have finally got rid of the snow. We are now in that limbo time where we want to fast track to holiday season.

With easter breaks coming up, may bank holiday weekends and, of course, the summer months ahead it’s time to start planning quality time away with our friends, family and loved ones. How do we choose the perfect weekend away? We thought we would share with you some of the ways to choose the perfect weekend away.

Are you going to stay at home or go abroad? One of the first things to consider when it comes to your break away would be to decide whether or not you want to stay at home or go abroad. There are major benefits to both, and there can be a cost and time difference. The things to consider would be how long you plan on going away for. For one night you may want to stay a little close to home, but the Easter bank holiday or another bank holiday weekend may give you those extra days and nights to enjoy somewhere further afield.

What do you want to do with your time there? The next thing to think about would be to think about exactly what you want to do with your time away. You may only have one thing on your mind, some rest and relaxation, and staying closer to home means that hotels like The Wood Norton could be the ideal escape. If you want something more energetic and active, there are some great hotels and resorts that you can consider that offer an array of sporting facilities and walking opportunities to enjoy.

What is your budget? Knowing where you want to go and what you want to do will then help you decipher your budget and how much you want to spend on the break away. You can figure out how much you want to spend and then looking online at various websites will help you determine the best deal. There are some great websites that offer last minute deals, so you may want to think about waiting a while before booking. If you can’t wait, then checking out a few different sites before booking would help you to determine the best deal. If you are traveling abroad, you may want to think about booking a hotel and plane separately so that you get a better deal.

Who are you going to go away with? Finally, you might want to think about who you want to go away with. Is it a couples escape, a weekend with your friends or even just some time away by yourself. There are many different types of breaks away you could do that would suit the company you are going to have, but sometimes just having your closest with you or your family is enough to make the break away magical.

We hope that this helps you book the perfect weekend break away soon, we have started planning ours already so let us know where you are planning on going too!

Don’t Let Your Budget Make You Stay at Home

Living in London is so expensive and so we don’t have as much spare income as we would like. We both just want to travel the world and our bucket list of places to visit is getting longer and longer, however sometimes wonder if we can afford to go on so many holidays, but there are quite a few things we can do to make foreign travel a little bit more affordable.

We thought we would share a couple of tips with you so you too can start looking into some very cheap travel for the summer. Here is what you need to do:

Travel Out Of High Season- Every destination will have its high and low seasons. For instance, South East Asia’s peak tourist season is once the rainy season is over. Summer is the high season for the majority of European countries. During these popular times, the costs of flights and accommodation will greatly increase. So, in order to find the best bargains, it’s worth travelling during the low season. Not only will it be cheaper, but you will also beat the crowds!

We also advise you try to avoid travelling in the school holidays as this is when prices rocket too, make sure you research when the summer holidays begin or when October half term is and you’ll save yourself a lot of money.

Negotiate With Operators- When you are looking in a travel agent’s for their best deals, the prices that they show you won’t always be set in stone. Many people assume that they are, though, and simply pay the price that they are told. But, you might find that it pays off to try and negotiate some further discount. It’s also worth asking if the agent’s run any credit schemes or payment plans to make it easier to pay off their bill. This will probably only be open to those with good credit. If your credit rating needs some improvement, you can always find out how to build credit with a credit card before you go shopping for holidays. Repairing credit can take time, but it’s worth it!

Don’t Fly Direct- If you don’t mind changing flights, it’s worth looking for indirect flights to your destination. Direct flights are often the most expensive options as they are the most convenient and popular. Of course, flying indirectly will mean you are travelling for longer, but the lower price should make it worth it. You might even want to find a flight that has a long layover so that you get the chance to get out of the airport and explore the city you have to change in.

Take A Guidebook- Using tour guides and tour groups to look around a city and discover everything it has to offer can end up very expensive. Instead, it’s worth buying a guidebook and using that as your guide around the destination. Make sure you buy one online or in a bookshop before you leave as they can be very expensive in airports! Top top is go to a charity shop as they always have so many guidebooks for sale.

Take Your Own Food- Cafes and food stands in airports are notorious for being extortionately priced. To make sure you don’t pay over £5 for a measly sandwich, you should pack some food to take with you. Just remember that you won’t be allowed to take liquids through security but you can take an empty bottle. More and more airports have water fountains just as you get through security so we always make sure we take an empty bottle with us.

As you can see then, travel doesn’t always have to be too expensive. There are ways you can afford a holiday this year even on your tight budget!

Travelling The World Top 5 Bucket Lists

Our travel bucket list gets longer and longer by the day, we dream about visiting and exploring so many beautiful countries. Gradually we are ticking destinations off of our bucket list but at the same time we are adding more every single day.

We thought we would write a blog place about all the different locations we want to visit, brace yourselves this list could be long AND it may leave you really wanting a holiday we know it did us.

Maldives- Is anyone elses Instagram feed full of bloggers in Maldives? Ours certainly is and we are so JEALOUS! Maldives is definitely up there with being one of the top countries we would love to visit, those water bungalows are just too dreamy. The sea is crystal clear and they have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, we better get saving!

Sri Lanka- We are already swooning over Sri Lanka; The wildlife, the scenery and the heritage is enough to make us jump on a plane tomorrow. We would love to visit the Sigiriya Rock Fortress and the Cave Temples because they look absolutely stunning. We would also visit the Yala National Park in the hope that we would see some of our favourite animals. Dalawella beach is a definite must visit as well we would love to have a go jumping from the palm tree swing!

Bangkok- Rach has briefly visited Thailand before but would love to go back and explore but this time with Annie!

We would of course visit The Grand Palace – you cannot go to Bangkok and visit the Grand Palace, the name kinda describes what it is and the picture Rach took when she was there makes it look very opulent and beautiful.

We have heard so many things about the Khaosan Road, good and bad, but we really want to see what it’s all about! Apparently the shops are really good and you can buy souvenirs and the famous elephant pants for really cheap! Not to mention eat crickets, worms and whatever else tickles your fancy and enjoy an alcoholic beverage or two at one of the many bars. Damnoen Sadua (floating market) is also very popular in south east Asia and we visited one in Vietnam, so would love to go to the famous Damnoen Sadua in Bangkok.

Bahamas- Okay so we will be honest with you ever since we watched the Mary-Kate and Ashley film ‘Holiday In The Sun’ we have wanted to visit the Bahamas! The Bahamas has the worlds third largest barrier reef so we would of course have to go diving during our visit. The Bahamas as made up of lots of different islands 700 to be precise so we would definitely need to do a bit of research to ensure we pick the best, although we are sure none of them would disappoint!

Abu Dhabi- We have wanted to visit Abu Dhabi ever since we watched the Sex & The City movie- how incredible did it look! We have both been to Dubai and absolutely loved it so we have a cheeky feeling we will also love Abu Dhabi and a bonus is it doesn’t matter when in the year we visit because they have sunshine all year round. We would love to visit the desert.

This is a sponsored post with destination 2, All views are our own.

The only regret you will make is wishing you started sooner

We will be completely honest with you here, we have a regret about our blog and Instagram and that is not starting it sooner. I mean maybe it wasn’t the right time for us if we had started earlier, it wasn’t like we sat around for ages pondering on whether or not to create a blog, it’s probably best that we take you back to the begging and where this crazy journey begun.

In October 2015 we decided to start a blog, we don’t remember why and we really cannot remember the conversation we had around it, which is really unlike us because we both have incredible memories for things like that but it’s been erased from both of our memories. Maybe we cannot remember because we didn’t see it as being a significant conversation or decision in our lives at the time, it was just meant to be a hobby where we documented some of our lives.

Fast forward 2 and a bit years and we absolutely love it, we don’t know what we used to do before our blog like seriously we must have been so bored. We spend every spare hour of the day we have working on our blog; writing blog posts, creating Instagram content, filming YouTube videos, answering emails and the list could really go on and on and on.

Our dream is to work full time on our blog we want to earn enough money so we don’t have to have a standard 9-5 job, we know this is also so many other bloggers dreams but you know what we think if we work hard enough our dreams can come true. No dream is too big if you put your mind to it, after all the only adventure you will regret is the one you didn’t take.

If you haven’t started a dream that you have been dreaming of doing whether that is a starting a blog, going travelling, moving in with someone or changing jobs you can do it!

So bring on the late nights, early mornings, copious amounts of coffee and constant hard work! We are ready to work harder than ever on our blog in 2018 and you know what we are already off to a good start and it’s only mid Jan, bring on the rest of the year.

A Tourist Guide to Alcudia

Alcudia is one of the main tourist towns in the North of Majorca on the Eastern Coast and we can see why it is so popular with tourists and we can especially see why families are attracted.  We visited Alcudia in July 2017 and had a great time, we had been in Palma De Majorca the capital of Majorca for a few days before so it was the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

If you are looking to book a holiday to Alcudia this year why not book it through Holiday Gems who sell amazing holidays to Alcudia!

Old Town- Many tourists visit Port De Alcudia and don’t realise Alcudia has an Old Town which in our eyes is the best thing about Alcudia.  Alcudia Old Town is surrounded by a Medieval Wall which is absolutely stunning. We wondered around the Old Town for hours weaving in and out of the quaint streets admiring the 13th century houses.

We stayed in Port De Alcudia in a hotel called EIX Alcudia (Adults only) it was a 2 minute walk from the beach, shops and restaurants. We walked to Alcudia Old Town for dinner a couple of times in the evening as it was only a 30 minute walk and by then the temperatures had dropped.

Eating dinner in Port De Alcudia- Port De Alcudia has a great selection of restaurants we were never stuck for choice and in fact we never had a bad meal. We would recommend eating by the Port the restaurants are great and you also get to look out at the port and if you are anything like us you will be dreaming about owning one of the incredible yachts that is mooring. Many of the restaurants will offer you a free jug of Sangria if you go to their restaurant which is a nice added bonus.

There are also a couple of bars along the port that have a relaxed atmosphere and a great cocktail menu. We enjoyed a couple of gin & tonics and the odd pint of beer (there is something about drinking beer in holiday) which we have to say were delicious and very refreshing in the hot July heat.

Bike Hire- We had a cloudy day in the middle of our holiday so we decided to hire bikes for the day, there are lots of places in Alcudia that you can hire bikes from so you won’t have any problems locating a bike hire shop. It was ridiculously cheap and only cost us 10 euros for the entire day, bargain! We cycled from Alcudia to Port De Pollenca which is a 6 mile cycle along the see front, we were really impressed as they had wide cycle lanes on the side of the road (much wider than in the UK) which made us feel safe whilst cycling on the road.

Port De Pollenca is a small town that again attracts thousands of tourists every summer, we wondered around and stopped off for an iced coffee which was delicious, we are glad we visited Port De Pollenca and we would definitely consider staying here if we were to visit Majorca again. It’s was definitely our favourite day of the holiday we love keeping active on holiday whilst exploring new places so this ticked both boxes.

Boat Trip- We love going on a boat trip and almost every holiday we make sure we fit one in so that’s exactly what we did when we were in Alcudia. We paid for the cheapest boat trip because it looked great but on hindsight we wish we had splashed out a bit and either hired our own boat or upgraded to the more expensive boat trip. The boat trip we went on was incredibly busy there wasn’t even enough space for everyone to sit down which was just mad, we felt like sardines. It’s important to note that Alcudia isn’t the first pick up point so when you get on the boat there are already guests on board so it really was a mad rush to find a space.

Palma De Majorca- If you are staying in Majorca for a couple of weeks we would definitely recommend a day trip to Palma De Majorca. We stayed here for 3 days before arriving in Alcudia and absolutely loved it. There is so much to do there you definitely won’t be bored.

If you do manage a trip to Palma then definitely try our Ice Wave they do the most delicious frozen yoghurt!

Enjoy your holiday, let us know if you have any questions about Alcudia, as always we are happy to answer!

We also vlogged our trip and you can watch all our videos! We have linked them below.

5 UK Cities We Want to Visit in 2018

We do love to write about the places we have visited, but this time, we thought we would write a post about the cities we want to visit in the UK. City breaks are great because you can go away for a long weekend, and it can feel like you have been away for ages.

York

We have wanted to visit York for a while not only to see the beautiful cobbled streets but also to visit Betty’s. Of course, with us, it’s always food-related, but Betty’s Tea Rooms are famous in York, plus the food looks divine. However, we would be torn whether to go for brunch in the morning or for tea and cake in the afternoon because they both look so yummy — guess we could go for both.

We would also like to walk down The Shambles, which is the maze of twisting lanes that we have seen in lots of pictures. Of course, we would also visit the famous York Minister, which is the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe.

Canterbury

Canterbury is only an hour’s train ride away from London so it’s easily accessible and a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of London.

Someone recommended we do a walking tour that takes 90 minutes, so we would definitely take part in that. We often go on walking tours when visiting a new city as firstly, we love walking, and secondly, it’s a great way to see all the city and learn about it. The tours leave twice a day, so you’ll be able to join one of them!

Manchester

We stumbled across a blog post about Manchester once, and ever since then, we have wanted to visit! It seems like there is so much to do there, and it is so easy for us to get to Manchester from London!  We would start our day with a run through Heaton Park like we do with any trip we go on!

We would head down to the quays at night to grab some dinner along the waterfront. We feel like when in Manchester, you have to do something football-related, so we would do a football stadium tour.

Newcastle

Newcastle is another city in the north of the UK, and although it may be famous for that crazy TV show called Geordie Shore, it’s also a City we would love to visit!  Newcastle sure does have a crazy night out (including a treble vodka mixer for £5), but there’s much more to the city than that. We would  choose to walk over the Tyne Bridge, as we feel like that is a must if you ever visit Newcastle.

Edinburgh

We have only ever heard good things about Edinburgh, so a visit will definitely be on the cards for 2018. As you probably already know, we love walking, so this would be the perfect city break, as we could visit Arthur’s Seat and challenge ourselves to climb the main mountain in Edinburgh. It wouldn’t be a trip to Edinburgh without a visit to the famous Edinburgh Castle.

Have we left any cities off our list that you think we should visit? We would love to hear your recommendations; there are so many beautiful cities in the UK that we need to explore.
