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 […]

The Mini Edinburgh City Guide


Kathventures

Edinburgh, it’s safe to say, stole my heart. It’s a grand but cosy, loud but content city that is easy to get lost in. Thankfully, though, it’s even easier to find a nice beer. The streets are hugged by buildings that exhale the city’s rich history and charming culture. If you’ve not been to Edinburgh […]

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 […]

A Foodie’s Edinburgh Itinerary


Kathventures

When Aaron and I go away, we make it our mission to try as much food as our tourist bellies will allow. While, like everyone else, we love sightseeing and learning about the cities we gatecrash, our favourite part of being on holiday is learning about a place’s culture via their cuisine. We always endeavour […]

April Eighteenth


Kathventures

Last Wednesday my mum and I slipped on our tea dresses and headed out into the sun for, essentially, our perfect day. It was the first day of spring that felt like summer; the day that would oversee our afternoon tea at The Ritz, our trip to see The Lion King and our dinner at Flat […]

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 […]
