The world is our oyster, but what about our own backyard? I often think about how many amazing places I’ve visited around the world but then how many places in my own country have I not seen? In my 28, nearly 29, years on this earth, there are still many places I want to visit in the UK. Some places I want to explore a little more. Hopefully I’ll get round to them in the next couple of years, just sometimes the temptation of the sunshine abroad is a little too much…
Dramatic scenes, iconic postcard picture spots and the potential to find dinosaur fossils. The Jurassic Coast has been somewhere I’ve wanted to go for a long time but it’s just so damn far away from Yorkshire. I’d like to visit Lulworth Cove and Durdle Dor, Chesil Bank and West Bay, take all the pretty photos and do all the coastal walks there are to do.
Chocolate box cottages and rolling hills of the countryside, the Cotswolds looks like such an idyllic part of the UK. I can imagine going down here for a long weekend and going on walks, drinking hot chocolate in little cafes and enjoying cake every day.
Consistently one of the best beaches in the UK, and in the world, Rhossili Bay has been on my radar for a while now and I’ve been dying to make the road-trip down there to spend a couple of days by the coast. I did have it in my mind that 2018 would be the year to go down but one of my best friends has recently got a job there with the National Trust so I’m thinking I might have to go down sooner rather than later!
Now Cornwall is somewhere where I’ve spent a lot of time and I’ve been lucky to do so. However, it’s been around 9 years since my last visit to this gorgeous county and I’m definitely keen to go down sometime and explore the quieter beaches, maybe try a bit of surfing and go back to some of my favourite places, including St Ives. If I could do this all in a VW Campervan, that would be awesome, and such a dream come true.
A huge forest that’s full of wild horses, that sounds lush right? Well that’s what the New Forest is. You can go horse-riding, walking, SUPing, along with a load of other activities and just really get away from it all. I think if I was to do a digital detox, it would be here, there’s no way I’d want to be distracted by technology with views as amazing as this…
