Eating My Way Around The Restaurants of Manchester

Eating My Way Around The Restaurants of Manchester

Manchester
Despite Manchester only being an hour away from home, I pretty much know nothing about it. So when Billy whisked me away for the weekend to see Jersey Boys at the theatre (which was great by the way, definitely recommend!) I took the opportunity to experience the city in the best way I know how... via my taste buds.
Coping With Mental Illness Abroad

Coping With Mental Illness Abroad

Leeds
I don't write about mental health. It's not because I'm ashamed or embarrassed by my experiences of it, it's just that it's not something I want to write about - I'd much rather share exciting travel stories and wonderful food experiences with you. And although I've struggled with quite severe depression in the past, my mental health is, most of the time, not too bad. So why on earth am I writing about it now?

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.

Where to Eat in Vilnius and Trakai

Where to Eat in Vilnius and Trakai

Vilnius
If you've read my most recent post, you'll already know that I spent my birthday weekend in Vilnius wandering snowy streets, eating constantly and drinking plenty of mulled wine. Having not done much research about Vilnius, I was surprised by how much there was to see and do, but also by the fantastic food scene. We ate a LOT on this trip, mainly because minus 11 is pretty cold so required plenty of stops to warm up! The below might look like a list of every single place I stopped, but honestly these are just the highlights!
Things to Do in Vilnius: A Snowy Weekend in the G-spot of Europe

Things to Do in Vilnius: A Snowy Weekend in the G-spot of …

Vilnius
One of my favourite things about this trip was that I didn't do much research, so had no idea what to expect. This meant discovering lots of lovely surprises as we wandered around the snowy streets, and allowed us to experience our own version of Vilnius - although I realise that in a small city you're pretty much guaranteed to do the same things you'd have done if you'd read up on it!
The Man Behind The Curtain: A Review

The Man Behind The Curtain: A Review

Leeds
Before I get into this post I have to admit that I don't have many pictures to share. As it was a once in a lifetime kind of meal, I wanted to fully immerse myself in the experience rather than worry about getting the right shot of each of the 14 (yes, 14!!!) courses. Sometimes you just have to enjoy the moment.
What to Expect on the GR20

What to Expect on the GR20

Corsica
I'm going to start this post of with a bold statement: the GR20 is the best hike I've done. I've loved the Spaghetti Tour in the Italian Alps, Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn, Hardrians Wall, the Coast to Coast, the West Highland Way, but the GR20 is the one that really takes my breath away whenever I think about it. It's absolutely not an easy walk, in fact it's the most difficult one I've done, but this post will tell you what to expect on the GR20 with the hope that you give it a go yourself.
A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Caves

A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Caves

Ingleborough
Yorkshire is perfect for a day out, whether you're entertaining the kids, spending time with a partner or having a solo adventure! There is so much beautiful countryside and a million things to do. This weekend Billy and I visited White Scar Cave in Ingleborough, North Yorkshire. My Christmas present to Billy this year was 'a year of fun', which has consisted of me planning a day out/activity/event to do together once a month for the next year. This was January's treat and an attraction that I would highly recommend to anyone. 
A Tapas Trail Through the Best Restaurants in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote

A Tapas Trail Through the Best Restaurants in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote

Lanzarote
Tapas. Perfect for those who, like me, are indecisive. Great for adventurous eaters who want to try something new but aren't sure if they'll like it. It suits those in search of either a snack or a feast, and it's the ultimate social meal, giving you the opportunity to bond with old and new friends over shared plates. Let me give you some context, before introducing to you the best tapas restaurants in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote.
5 Reasons To Love Leeds Market

5 Reasons To Love Leeds Market

Leeds
Whether I'm at home or travelling, I do my best to support the local economy by shopping with local businesses and eating at independent restaurants. If there's something in it for me too (a good bargain, great quality produce) then I'm even happier! On that note, let me introduce you to my favourite place in Leeds: Leeds Kirkgate Market.
A Day Out in London and Some Fabulous Dim Sum

A Day Out in London and Some Fabulous Dim Sum

London
After spending a few festive days with my family in Buckinghamshire, I took the opportunity to spend the day being a tourist in London on my way back up to Leeds. With so much to see and do in this wonderful (and somewhat overwhelming) city, the hardest part was actually planning the day and, of course, where to have lunch!
The Restaurant You Have To Visit in Budapest

The Restaurant You Have To Visit in Budapest

Budapest
We all know of Budapest as a fun city, full of must-see attractions such as the Fisherman's Bastion and the thermal baths, and with an exciting night life. But what really surprised me in Budapest was the food - from hearty comfort food in the markets to high end restaurant menus, it was all great quality grub. I loved everything I ate during my weekend in Budapest, but there was one particular meal that was unforgettable, at what must be one of the best restaurants in Budapest: KönyvBár.
