Eating and Drinking in Trento, Trentino

Eating and Drinking in Trento, Trentino

Trento, Italy
Whether or not you’ve been to Italy, it’s no secret that the food is great. If we were playing a game of word association, I bet food would be the first word that comes to mind if someone were to say “Italy”. Well, last week I visited Trento and my tastebuds can confirm that the rumours are all true!
Crib Goch and Snowdon: Where to Stay, What to Expect, Where to Eat

Crib Goch and Snowdon: Where to Stay, What to Expect, Where to …

Wales
I'd never been to Wales before, but in preparation for our Italian High Level Route trip in a couple of months, daddy Miller suggested a sprint up Crib Goch and Snowdon. I was a little apprehensive because it was such a long way to travel from Leeds for one day of hiking, especially when the Yorkshire countryside is stunning enough for me, but I can now confirm that it was 100% worth it!

Sleeping on the Caledonian Sleeper: A Guest Post

Sleeping on the Caledonian Sleeper: A Guest Post

Did you know that blogging is actually a genetic trait? That's right, and today I'm publishing a guest post from my wonderful blogger mum, Christine. When mum mentioned that she was going on the Caledonian Sleeper to Shetland, I was mega intrigued and over the moon when she agreed to write a guest post for Adventures With Nell all about it. Enjoy!
My First Solo Trip: A Slow Weekend in Devon

My First Solo Trip: A Slow Weekend in Devon

Devon
As I was throwing myself into a slightly different type of holiday (i.e. solo), I decided that this was the perfect opportunity to adjust my travel mindset. Instead of cramming as much in as possible in a bid to see, eat and drink everything the area had to offer, my main focus would be to rest, relax and do exactly what I felt like doing. I made no plans whatsoever and simply played it by ear.
A Slightly Girlie Guide to Hiking Kit Essentials

A Slightly Girlie Guide to Hiking Kit Essentials

Leeds
Walking holidays are only enjoyable if a) you're fit enough (it's no fun if you're struggling up hills and longing for the end of the day so that you can rest your legs) and b) you have the right kit. The right kit will literally mean the difference between a multi-day hike being a challenge or a holiday. Here are my hiking essentials.

Cosy Places to Drink in Vilnius

Cosy Places to Drink in Vilnius

Vilnius
I visited Vilnius in January, meaning that it was very, very, very cold. Much to my distaste (I realise sarcasm doesn't really come across in writing), this meant spending a lot of our weekend warming up with a cup of mulled wine or two. Luckily, Vilnius turned out to have loads of places that were cosy, friendly and served fantastic mulled wine.
My Blogging Journey So Far: 5 Months In

My Blogging Journey So Far: 5 Months In

Leeds
Can you believe it's been over 5 months since I launched Adventures with Nell?! It took about two years of saying that I wanted to start a blog to actually give it a go, mainly because I didn't know how to set it up, maintain it or what the hell I'd actually write about. To be completely honest I still have no idea what I'm doing, but I'm enjoying the steep learning curve and hugely excited to continue to develop my skills and my writing style.
Workshop: The Most Creative Café in Leeds

Workshop: The Most Creative Café in Leeds

Leeds
My friend Aliss, owner of Workshop, is one of the most inspirational women I know - she is my ultimate role model and I’m so proud of her. She took the plunge and left her job as a designer to open her own business. She’s had to work unbelievably hard and make a hell of a lot of sacrifices, but she knew what she wanted and she went for it - what a woman! The result? Workshop. A gorgeous cafe, shop and creative space in the heart of Headingley.
Blue Sakura – The Best Sushi in Leeds?

Blue Sakura – The Best Sushi in Leeds?

Leeds
As I write this post I am completely and utterly content. I'm relaxing on my oh-so-comfy sofa in bunny PJs, with a stomach so full of sushi that I can hardly move. Sushi is my favourite food, so if I'm writing that somewhere does the best sushi in Leeds, I really have to mean it! Cue Blue Sakura, an all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant in the arena quarter of Leeds. When I found out that such a place had opened, I eagerly awaited the next time that a hangover, a sushi craving and a bottomless appetite would grace my presence.
What it’s Like to Stay at the Black Swan, Helmsley

What it’s Like to Stay at the Black Swan, Helmsley

Helmsley
On a cold February weekend last year, my boyfriend Billy and I treated ourselves to a night away in Helmsley, a quaint market town in North Yorkshire. We had originally planned to book a last minute trip to somewhere in Eastern Europe, but I was struggling with a bout of anxiety at the time and getting on a flight to an unknown country felt too much. At just the right moment, and email from Yorkshire Food Guide popped into my inbox offering an overnight stay at the Black Swan, Helmsley, with dinner and breakfast included for just £179. Here's how it all panned out.
