A weekend in Nottingham

On an important note, travelling on a budget in the UK starts with planning in advance. You can use Trainline and setup email alerts for early released tickets to any destination you would like to travel, at least 4 weeks in advance. Disclaimer: I am in love with Nottingham. I spent a long weekend there and I am absolutely charmed by the whole atmosphere that surrounds this cute city in the UK. I tried to do as many things as possible and in this post I will tell you on which day what I’ve been up to. This should give … Continue reading A weekend in Nottingham

Sunday Roast – London

Okay, so here is the thing. I am not a huge fan of Sunday Roasts and this is mainly due to me believing that there is a bigger hype around it as it should be. Some of the roast I have tried, were not the best to say the least…no flavours, questionable quality of the meat, boring side dishes… But, then I went to Hack and Hop last weekend and my faith was restored a little bit. The place is hidden in a little street close to Blackfriars station and St. Paul’s Cathedral. They have amazing selection of ales, beers … Continue reading Sunday Roast – London

Brits 2019 – P!nk & Hugh Jackman

Okay, I don’t know if you are into award shows, but if you are into quality music and mind-blowing performances, the Brits 2019 is a must watch. What a night! What a show! Let’s talk about two of my absolute favourite people and artists on this planet whom opened and closed this wonderful night at the O2 Arena, in London; P!ink đź’ž who is the winner of ‘Outstanding Contribution to Music’ Award. If you would question why, just watch her performance and get ready to be blown away. She is absolutely fantastic. Her vocals are perfect, the visual was out … Continue reading Brits 2019 – P!nk & Hugh Jackman

Seadragon Backpackers, Brighton

This hostel was such a relief after the first shock of the B&B Guest-house. The first thing you’ll notice when entering the place that it is tiny and cute. Reception is basically just a little desk in the living room area. It’s all very bright, colourful and tidy. The staff is very nice and approachable. It’s not a big hostel, maybe around 25-30 people, which makes it quite cosy & quiet. The rooms are very nice, there is enough space and natural light. It looks like it’s been recently renovated. There are showers in each floor. They are clean, there is space … Continue reading Seadragon Backpackers, Brighton

Sobo Guest House, Brighton & Hove

I’ve stayed at this place for two nights and hopefully I will never stay here again. This place is on the cheap side of the hostels but there are certainly many reasons to that. First, it is in Hove, not Brighton and is far from the centre. Second, it stinks. You heard me. Upon entering the hostel, the only thing you will smell, is this disgusting odour…and when you look around you realise that everything is dirty, old and it’s just not inviting at all. You might even get discouraged, but then you meet the staff. They are very nice … Continue reading Sobo Guest House, Brighton & Hove

London weekend – January 2018

Tips for a London Trip; Hostel – Pride of Paddington Restaurant – Yori, Korean BBQ All about Eve with Gillian Anderson and Lily James, Noel Coward Theatre Sightseeing – Brick Lane This is the first time I’ve stayed in a hostel when visiting London and it’s been an absolute pleasure. The Pride of Paddington is centrally located, 2 minutes walk from Paddington station. Bakerloo, Circle, District, Hammersmith and City lines are all stop here. It’s very easily reachable even just by taking buses, few of them are conveniently running 24/7. I’ve stayed in a 4 bed female dormitory (breakfast included) … Continue reading London weekend – January 2018
