Hello lovely people! How are you doing?
I’ve had such a lovely weekend in York with my friends walking around the city and trying out some street food. I also admired the birds of prey display in the Museum gardens and tried out a new cocktail bar on the river called Missoula – a definite must try if you visit this beautiful city! The pornstar martini’s are delicious and you get a shot of prosecco in with the 2-for-1 price 🙂 The birds are also super friendly and a good way of entertaining children for a short while (and adults too!), if you’re looking for that break away from everything.
Today I’m rewinding back to August when I received a new award created by the incredible Logan! As many of you my know, the majority of blogs post awards following a long line of people without ever knowing the creator of the award. Logan therefore created his own purely for travellers and its something I am super exited to receive! He has some amazing posts about his travels across America and has just reached the amazing achievement of 500 followers too – so congratulations Logan and thanks again for the nomination!

1. Where is the most amazing place you have ever been?
Still definitely St Pete’s beach, Florida. I had just finished my first year of university and went on this amazing holiday to an apartment on the beach. We got to watch the 4th of July fireworks from the balcony and I felt so relaxed considering I had just finished all of my exams.
2. How many continents have you been to?
Europe, Asia, North America and Oceania – the latter of which is technically not a continent, but I’ll include it for the sake of this question 🙂
3. Have you ever lived in a country other than your current one?
Unfortunately not no, but this is definitely something I am hoping for in the future. At the moment I don’t have enough money or a job abroad so it would be very difficult. Plus I think one of the hardest things for me would be being separated from my friends and family. The thought of being thousands of miles away would make me feel very lonely and isn’t something I want to experience anytime soon.
4. What is the worst native food that you have ever tasted on vacation?
On my last trip to France I had this absolutely awful bowl of seafood pasta at a restaurant near Mont Saint Michel. As the menu didn’t specify the seafood, I thought I would try it and surprise myself with what came out…. little did I know. The mussels were incredibly salty and to top that off the pasta and fish had been flavoured with additional salt, so it felt like I had poured a tub of salt down my throat! I had about 5 bites and couldn’t take it anymore! I couldn’t stop drinking water for the rest of the day then!
5. What is the best native food that you have ever tasted on vacation?
Okay, so considering I live in England, a trip to Northern Ireland may not seem like a such a big deal to anyone reading, but I had the best food I’ve ever tasted in my life there. It was this beautiful little restaurant on Valentine’s Day in the centre of Belfast and all of the waiters were dressed in red with romantic candles placed around the room. It was a stunning three-course meal with chocolate shards and pudding for desert – just amazing! To this day I can’t remember the name of the restaurant, but I’m making it my life-long mission to find out!
6. Where is the last place you vacationed?
Holland and Amsterdam just a few weeks ago. It was such a nice break away to see one of my friends and I loved every minute I spent there, even the 2 am trips to the beach 🙂
7. What is the longest vacation you have ever been on?
I went on a 4 and a half week vacation to New Zealand when I was 14 years old. Some of the scenery and experiences I had were breathtaking and it was one of the last holidays I had with my granddad before he passed. I will never forget it ❤
Sadly this is all I have time for at the moment as I have to get ready for work tomorrow now. I hope you all had a brilliant weekend and I will be posting the rest of this award soon so stay tuned for more!
What is your dream vacation? Who would you take with you?
