Just a few miles from my home, there’s a tiny Welsh town with a population of some 3,500. Normally it’s somewhere I go with my friends to sit by the river and chat, or take my little cousins to the park. But in the second week of July every year since 1947, Llangollen has welcomed … Continue reading Llangollen International Eisteddfod
This week I took yet another trip to Leeds. Having done nearly everything in this lovely city, Ffion and I decided to go to Leeds’ zoo, Tropical World. It’s not huge, more of a small attraction than a zoo, but we had a lovely day, took some nice photos and saw plenty of adorable exotic … Continue reading Tropical World Leeds
For a month and a half, Roundhay Park in Leeds is transformed into an illuminated garden of lights and colours. Not only that, there’s plenty to do and eat! It continues until January 1st – there’s still time to visit.
Ffion recently visited a Christmas Market in Leeds, here's why you should make a last minute trip to enjoy it!
Let’s be honest, Christmas Markets are great because of how they look. They’re cute, cosy and atmospheric. Cardiff looks lovely at Christmas, I just love it.

Here’s what I got up to. I arrived at Leeds and immediately grabbed a Pho. Am I really going anywhere … Continue reading Leeds at Christmas

Obviously, I was thrilled. Here’s what it was like. My first stop was to pick up … Continue reading Chester Christmas Market
Last month, I took a trip up to Leeds and decided to pop to York while I was up North. It’s been some time since I was there last, so I was looking forward to exploring the old city’s cobbled streets. It happened to be quite near December, so it turned out to be very Christmassy.
Leeds Light Night is an annual arts and light festival held across the city of Leeds. Held over two evenings, a variety of different sculptures, performances and projections are showcased among the city’s landmarks.
A couple of weeks ago, I went on a quiet little holiday to West Wales. It’s a nice, quiet place for a holiday away from it all. Pembrokeshire was a great, dog-friendly holiday – It’s especially nice at the end of the summer as it’s far less busy, and dogs are allowed on most beaches … Continue reading Pembrokeshire
