sudden want to travel.
Hello I'm Clo!
First and foremost
my LULU Guinness sale suitcase has indeed sold out. Charming. Perfect, Bonzer aahhhhhh. #nightmare.
Last night I found
myself watching Eat, Pray, Love
#cry. I found myself getting lost in the
moment, encapsulated in the frame and wanting to be absorbed by the screen
into the foreign lands that oh so
many of us only dream of seeing with
our very own eyes, first hand, in the flesh.
I want to relax
more, see the world, travel and meet new people. It’s time to grab life by the balls and just
bloody go for it.
Funnily enough the
beauty / make up girls want to do a holiday this year before we all go of to
uni. I am totally all for it. Sand, sea
and sun, is just a must for me after the year I had last year. New
experiences have never been so close, with the internet everything is
accessible with just a click of a button and a plane ride away.
This year I’m doing
a few get-aways, trips and experiences. From girly spa days, to backpacking and
trekking up a mountain. I’m not just going abroad or a long way away either - Don’t
forget to explore your local towns as there is always something to explore
close to home. Holiday in your town with your own friends! Museums, points of
interest and concerts or stand up events.
These are some of
the places I quite fancy going to:
I’m thinking rail
travel. Old school but faster than 50 years ago. Hello Virgin travel!
I’m going to have a
good old wonder, museums, walks and castles. A few days away to wonder through
the shops, write and enjoy my own time and company. Alone time is really a
great character builder a little solitude if you will.
So I figured I can
soul search at anytime anywhere and as my research on Edinburgh lengthened I
figured I should have a travel companion to share the experience and history
So I made a call to
my best friend Lizzie. We’re going in March.
loving the look of the Grass Market hotel which is just so cool! They have
comic book wallpaper, books and is super modern, right in the heart of the city
and perfect for a chilled, laid back break.
Just take a look for yourself and tell me you don't fancy it...
Just look at that kettle!
It's right in the center of Edinburgh so an ideal location to go site seeing.
They even welcome you on your door.
Just fine and Dandy!
The entrance to the bathroom.
Check how they keep their keys!
This is the Grass Market's 'Chill' reception. They have WIFI. Need I say more?
I’ve loved Paris since day dot. Perhaps it’s
the fantasy that a handsome Frenchman will whisk me off my feet and wear garlic
and ride a bike or perhaps it’s because it’s where my parents really fell in
love in the early 90’s. A real vintage thought.
My French was always a little rocky
throughout school yet as soon as it wasn’t compulsory I started to lap it up
and take a real, true interest.
I’m old enough now at the grand old age of Drum
Roll eighteen that I can sight see solo or in a group. I don’t know if I’ll
make it to Paris this year, I hope so. I’d like to visit the museums, focus on
art and culture and perhaps even practice the language of lurrrve. What a
New York, New York. The big apple, Statue
of Liberty, all the skyscrapers.
This is a new addition to the list. I think
pretty much everyone wants to go to New York at some point or another. My Dad’s
sudden announcement last year was very out of character (I think he’s having an
old age crisis.) He announced:
“ Next year we’re going to America for three weeks.”
At the time my Mum and I just laughed,
however, his commitment to his word has not faltered and it looks like it is
going to happen, although I’ll only believe it when I’ve got the tickets in
hand. Standard thought process really.
super hot and sunny...
So for what should appear obvious reasons
my girly holiday is going to be sunny! Yes we’ll sip cocktails, dance, party as
well as chill, soak up those rays and sight see!
Whilst ill over the past couple of days I’ve
research places and possibilities. I’m thinking away from the busy places but
still accessible and not too far away.
I’m already bracing myself for god early
flights and cockroaches on the floors. What can I say? We’re on a budget!
I’m also turning to ‘Suitcase’ magazine for
guidance and inspiration. Talking of suitcase that's what I currently need...
Where are you off to this year – let me
know in the comments below and tell me where’s good to go and where to avoid!
Lots of love,
Clo : -)
