Hi! Welcome to Adventures with Nell.

I’m Ellen, also known as Nell. Here’s a little bit about me:

I’m a Leeds based blogger in my twenties, originally from Buckinghamshire but now a total Yorkshire convert. I live in Leeds city centre with my boyfriend and incredibly beautiful and comfortable new (ish) sofa, and work nearby as a Senior Account Manager at a marketing agency.

I adore city breaks where I can aimlessly wander cobbled streets, explore hidden corners and, most importantly, enjoy local food and drink (I’m an avid wine enthusiast). Short trips are my favourite, as I like having multiple adventures to look forward to and it means that I can explore more places with limited budget and annual leave – travel isn’t easy with a full time job!

As well as city breaks, I also love walking and look forward to a hiking holiday with my dad once a year. This is when we enjoy some quality daddy-daughter time whilst enjoying our shared passion for mountains and talking about life’s important mysteries.

So what can you expect from my blog?

My motivation for blogging is pure enjoyment: I love sharing the things I’m passionate about with others and I love to tell a story! Writing is not only a creative outlet, but also a huge stress-reliever and something that I want to really focus on and improve in.

I hope my blog serves as a helpful resource to anyone reading whether you’re looking for inspiration for your next city break, are ready to explore the world on foot or want to find out where to eat and drink locally in Leeds or abroad.


I’m always open to collaborations with brands that I’m passionate about and relate to my blog – be it travel, food or booze! If you’d like to work with me please contact me by email:
