    Manchester

    Our nearest BIG city is Manchester so we do pop over there occasionally, but being an honourary Scouser I have to say it’s not my favourite place. I’ve heard a lot of people say you have to live in the city in order to really love it and once you do it becomes the most amazing place, but I’ve always felt it was just a bit… grey? Anyway, we have found a few fab places we go to for food and this time we obviously had to find something transport-related to do as well, so here is a round-up of our latest trip. Shoryu Ramen This is the main reason…

    Nottingham

    I’ve spent a bit of time in Nottingham as I did an interior design course at the NDA for a couple of weeks and during this time I found some fun places to go in the city centre, but this time we stayed a little further outside the city and it was LOVELY. We did something called Home Exchange which I will tell you all about another time, but basically we stayed in a family’s home (for free) and in return someone stayed in our home. As part of the exchange we had to look after the family’s house which included their pets – it was epic. They had three…

    Prestatyn – Where to Eat!

    We had brought tons of food with us to make in our little AirBnB, but the guidebook left for us to look through was filled with delicious restaurant options, so instead we splurged and had a fabulous few days! Patagonia Welsh Roots Our first night was the biggest treat – we saw a listing for steak and just turned up. It was delicious, lovely staff, everyone loved Alfie even when he mostly just sang the alphabet on repeat and it was just a really nice evening out. If you don’t know what type of steak you want the staff are really helpful too and we got exactly what we wanted…

    Prestatyn

    Prestatyn is just over an hours drive from Liverpool, so perfect for a quick getaway. We spent four days here and this is what we saw: Rhuddlan castle Well this is definitely where I took the most photos on our holiday – wow! We were the only ones here even though it was a Sunday morning in the summer holidays. It’s only the outer wall of the castle left and we weren’t allowed to go up the stairs to the top of the turrets, but the grounds are lush and Alfie just ran around, playing hide and seek and generally living his best life. Apparently… King Edward I liked his…

    Glasgow – Where to Eat!

    Here’s the post you’ve all been waiting for… We got a few takeaways as it was easier with our toddler to eat in our accommodation, plus we had friends come over and join us so it worked out perfectly. Here’s what we recommend: Maki and Ramen We are obviously obsessed with Japanese food and always give it a try. We were very surprised at how amazing this was – we got a takeaway and put the contents in a bowl, poured the soup stock over the top and it was delicious! I was drooling over my black garlic tonkotsu ramen so Glas-GO-GO-GO get them! An authentic Japanese experience in the…

    Glasgow

    Glasgow? More like Glas- GO GO GO! I haven’t been to Glasgow in twenty years. I have to admit it was the most scary place I’ve ever been to and I’ve been to a lot of scary places… We were followed, threatened and generally it felt unsafe. But recently a whole load of people have been raving about how it’s changed and so we just had to find out what they were on about. And they were right. Our first trip outside of England with our little human Alfie was a great success. He’s 20 months old now and we’ve not been ABEL to get him anywhere because of Covid.…
