A Weekend in the City


Kathventures, Uncategorized

Last weekend, Aaron and I had a booked-well-in-advance rarity: a weekend together. We stepped onto the train and towards the unknown; a whole Saturday in each other’s company with three-for-one-pound sweets and sweet chilli crisps in our bags. It was already too much… I slept the whole way. As soon as we arrived at London […]

Edinburgh’s Best Drinking Spots


Kathventures

Two English people walk into some Scottish bars… Aaron and I love checking out local bars and pubs when we are visiting a new place. And Edinburgh, I can confirm, has plenty of bars and pubs. We tested out local gins (of which are also plenty!), lager, wine and even tried an obligatory whisky. Over […]

The Ritz Edit


Kathventures

Wednesday hosted the day I’d been dreaming of ever since I first relished in the taste of a warm fruit scone, paired with the richness of clotted cream (which must¬†always¬†be spread first) and, of course, the sweetness of bright red strawberry jam. Yes, my mum and I finally experienced afternoon tea at The Ritz. It […]

Four Alternative Things to do in London


Kathventures

Whenever I visit London there is normally one of two reasons for the trip; to see someone (a friend/my brother) or to go to see a show (the theatre/a gig). While I adore both of these pastimes, London has far more to offer than just this (Who’d have thunk, eh?). Earlier this week I visited […]

A Sunday in Guildford


Kathventures

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to see my uni friends FAR more often. I didn’t do very well in the last half of last year but 2018 has already seen me reunited with some of my uni favourites twice! Callum and I got the chance to visit Neetu yesterday in her hometown, Guildford. […]

Why You Should Travel With a Friend


Kathventures

A couple of weeks ago I spent five days in New York City with my best friend, Tarryn. Travelling with a friend is something that seems to be underrated. When we’re younger we often holiday and explore the world with our families. When we’re a little older we may still get on a plane with […]

The Fourth Day | New York, New York


Kathventures

Last Saturday was mine and Tarryn’s final full day in New York. The city that’s so nice they named it twice. It was still chilly in The Big Apple but not quite as biting as the previous day. We had pre-booked tickets for the Ellis Island ferry and so we hopped on the Subway and, […]

The Second Day | New York, New York


Kathventures

After a busy and brilliant first day, our second day wasn’t looking any quieter. But who really goes to New York City to relax?! I was particularly excited for day two- the day of Central Park and the Empire State. And I assure you, it didn’t disappoint. The day went from a quiet park walk […]

The First Day | New York, New York


Kathventures

Last week I hopped on a plane with my best friend Tarryn to take on the Big Apple. The city of big lights, big skylines and big names. After Tarryn insisted we go to New York to see her favourite band, Tegan and Sara, we only had a few months to save up and plan […]
