Despite being scared of heights, I discovered on our visit to Paris that I absolutely adore getting up high for those good views. During a recent visit to my parents, Ali and I hopped in the elevator and headed to Cloud 23 on the 23rd floor of Beetham Tower on Deansgate to enjoy an afternoon tea in the sky.
This year, aged 24 and a half I spent my very first Christmas away from home.
I know that many people have spent Christmas in various different places, split between different branches of family. For some it may be the norm, for many nothing out of the ordinary. Myself, well I’ve never had a Christmas morning without my parents and my sister, so it was pretty weird.
If you follow me on Instagram you have probably already seen a million and one photos from my trip to Paris at the start of August. Ali and I went for four days for our anniversary, and for both of us it was our first time visiting the capital of France. It was only when I posted a picture on Instagram this weekend of the Eiffel Tower that I realised it’s been two months since our trip and I still hadn’t got my butt into gear and shared the trip on here. So without further ado here’s my Paris photo diary…
Prepare yourself for a photo heavy post! At the start of May the boyfriend and I set off on a sunny drive up the A1 to Scarborough to stay at Ox Pasture Hall, a beautiful country hotel in Yorkshire. We’d settled on May with the hope that the weather would have improved, though I was worrying that maybe it wouldn’t as we moved through April and all that unseasonal snow! However, we totally lucked out and there was something of a heat wave the weekend we went to the seaside – couldn’t have planned it better!
