The Best Thing to Do in Leeds: Leeds Food Tours

The Best Thing to Do in Leeds: Leeds Food Tours

Leeds
This is a very exciting blog post for me, because I'm introducing my own business - Leeds Food Tours. Those of you who follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook will probably already be aware of Leeds Food Tours as I haven't shut up about it, but if you're new to Adventures with Nell or finding this on Google then let me proudly introduce you the newest (and best!) thing to do in Leeds.
Falling in Love With Venice

Falling in Love With Venice

Venice
Opinions on Venice seem to be pretty mixed. Some people are charmed by it’s romantic canals and inspired by it’s grand architecture, whilst others find it overcrowded and overpriced. Venice had always been on my bucket list, but I'd also heard negative things about it, so I was quite nervous about visiting incase I disliked the place that was so perfect in my head! Would the tens of thousands of tourists cramming onto bridges to take selfies and the extortionate price of a coffee in St Marks’ square make me hate Venice?

Hi, I'm Nell. I’m a Leeds based travel blogger creating content to inspire you to make the most of your weekends, limited annual leave and hard-earned cash by writing about part-time, mid-budget travel. Here you'll find posts about city breaks, hiking trips and tales of food and wine.

Foodie Doesn’t Equal Greedy: Why I Love Food

Foodie Doesn’t Equal Greedy: Why I Love Food

Leeds
We catch up with friends over food - whether that's updating each other on our lives over a long lunch or inviting the girls over for some home cooked food and a bottle of wine. Beautiful romances start with first dates over dinner, families celebrate birthdays, graduations and anniversaries in their favourite restaurants, whole communities come together to celebrate their heritage over traditional foods at carnivals and festivals.
How to Spend 24 Hours in Ljubljana if You Love Food and Wine

How to Spend 24 Hours in Ljubljana if You Love Food and Wine

Ljubljana
Despite being more excited about Ljubljana than any other city on my Balkan trip, I ended up with just one full day there. This meant that I had to spend my 24 hours in Ljubljana wisely, which meant getting through a lot of food and wine! Here's what I got up to, hopefully inspiring you to visit Ljubljana and giving you some ideas of what to do whilst there.
Why Kamnik is the Perfect Base to Explore Ljubljana and Velika Planina

Why Kamnik is the Perfect Base to Explore Ljubljana and Velika Planina

Slovenia
I'd not actually heard of Kamnik before, but when the Ljubljana tourism board offered me an overnight stay in Kamnik and cable car tickets to visit Velika planina, I discovered that these were places that I didn't know I was desperate to visit! Furthermore, I found that Kamnik was the perfect base to explore not only Velika planina but also Ljubljana, offering a much quieter spot just 30-40 minutes away from the city.

Hands up if you constantly crave a weekend away but have neither the time nor the money?! Well this is where the day trip comes into it's own. Just head over to a new city bright and early, spend the day exploring the tourist attractions, stop for a long lunch and a glass of wine or two, and get to know the city's personality in just a few hours. This weekend I did exactly that, with a day trip to Liverpool with National Express. Let me tell you a little about my experience with National Express, before giving you a few ideas of what to do if you're taking a trip to Liverpool.
Where A Year of Blogging Has Taken Me

Where A Year of Blogging Has Taken Me

Leeds
It's been a year since I published my first blog post on Adventures with Nell, so of course I had to write a little anniversary post. I know it's a bit of a cliché to write one of these posts, and it's even more of a cliché to say what I'm about to say, but it's so true and has to be done: I can't believe what a difference my blog has made to my life! So let me have this cliché and waffle on about how blogging has changed my life (if you read on you'll see that it has literally changed my life) over the last twelve months.
A Glamping Paradise on a Vineyard in Slovenia

A Glamping Paradise on a Vineyard in Slovenia

Maribor
Whilst travelling through the Balkans I stayed in a range of accommodation types from AirBnb apartments to hotels to hostels. We mainly chose where to stay based on our budget - even the more luxurious AirBnBs were significantly cheaper than staying in a hotel or even a hostel in many cases. Everywhere we stayed was lovely, but nothing compared to one particular night of pure luxury... glamping at Chateau Ramsak. This place is absolutely incredible and was a true highlight of our trip (particularly the breakfast), so read on and let me tell you all about it.
The Swankiest Hostel in Zagreb? A Review of Swanky Mint Hostel

The Swankiest Hostel in Zagreb? A Review of Swanky Mint Hostel

Zagreb
I'm going to start this blog post by admitting that I'm not really a hostel traveller. I like my own space and I mostly stay in AirBnbs, with a few hotels thrown in to the mix as well. Oh and the odd mountain hut if I'm hiking! However, I was travelling through the Balkans with a backpack and as a result I felt compelled to give the hostel thing a go. So let me introduce to Swanky Mint Hostel.
Pizza Making With Leeds Cookery School And Why They Can’t be Topped

Pizza Making With Leeds Cookery School And Why They Can’t be …

Leeds
I'd wanted to take a cooking class with Leeds Cookery School for a long time, ever since I found out about them, but hadn't quite gotten around to it. So when I was offered the chance to take part in their Pizza and Prosecco Cocktails class in return for a blog post I was ridiculously excited! Not was the class amazing, but they play a key role in the local community and I'm all for that. So let me tell you a little about Leeds Cookery School, their location and the Pizza and Prosecco Cocktails class that I took part in.
