Travel Wishlist #2

 Hello there! Following on from my original wish list (which if you missed you can read here), my second wish list will be places that I would like to visit within the UK. I for one love going away to different countries to experience different cultures, but I also love travelling throughout the UK and seeing what places it has to offer. Sure you can't guarantee what the weather will be like, but that's just part of the fun.

1. Brighton
 I've been to Southampton, and I've been somewhere where we could see Brighton in the distance (I can't quite remember where this was) but I've never actually been into Brighton. I love the seaside and it would be lovely to go to an area that is known for it's sea-sideiness. Also a lot of beauty youtubers that I watch have recently moved to Brighton- I want to see what all the fuss is about!

2. Blackpool
 I have been to Blackpool a couple of times, but this was a lot of years ago now. Tom has never been and I really want to take him so he can experience the vast amount of lights along the tramline. I would also like to go back up the Blackpool tower, but as Tom is scared of heights I doubt this will be happening any time soon!

3. York
 Again, I have been to York a lot of times throughout my life, but this is one of my favourite cities to visit. It's such a beautiful place, and has so much to do! The nerdy side of me absolutely loves the castle museum in the centre- it has a street in the middle set out exactly like it would have been in the Victorian era. If you ever get a chance to visit it, make sure you do! It's so interesting.

4. Edinburgh
 I'm sorry, but I'm now realising that in this list there is a lot of 'I've been here before but would like to go again' places. I went for my birthday when I think I was about 9, and we got a flight from Norwich! It rained, but when we went into a cafe and had chicken casserole, I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I have ever had- just because it was hot and I was freezing cold!

5. Liverpool
 Hurrah! One I've never been to! My parents went to Liverpool earlier in the year, and they recommended that I go one day. It would be nice to see a city that you hear so much about, plus there is a replica of 'Central Perk' from Friends that I really want to go to!

6. Bristol
 Bristol is one of those places that I've heard about, but never really thought that much of. Sheffield for me was one of these places before I came to visit, and I love it here, so I would like to give another city a go!

7. Oxford
 You always hear about the big two Universities of Cambridge and Oxford, and I have visited Cambridge, so I would like to visit Oxford one day and see what it has to offer! From what I have seen, it looks like a beautiful city, so I would love to see it in person.

8. Bath
 I have been to Bath. Once. But I can't really remember what it was like, as it was a few years ago now, so I would really like to go again. I think it's nice to re-visit places that you have been to as a child, as you have the previous memories but you are able to create new ones.

9. Cardiff
 I've never been to Wales, so why not start off with the Capital? It's always been too far to go to from Suffolk, but I need to look into see how long it would take to get from Sheffield. I'd really like to see what Wales has to offer!

10. Leeds
 Leeds is one of those cities that I had heard of, but I didn't really know where it was. It's only about 45 minutes away from Sheffield, and my flatmate from last year always had the loveliest clothes on, and whenever I asked where they were from she would always say 'rag traders' which is in Leeds!

As always this quote is from pinterest, and is another one that I have on my wall! I chose this quote as I think it's a good idea to explore what your own country has to offer- as well as what others have.
 I feel like I really need to take advantage of my discount railcard while I can, to visit as many places as possible. I think instead of going on holiday abroad next year, I'd like to go to away for a lot of long weekends (Tom take notice of this)

Is there anywhere that you would add to my list?

Love Jess xxx

  1. I would love to 're-visit Berwick on Tweed, Blackpool for a weekend. Definitely will re-visit York. Not been to Chester, that is a pretty town, love North Wales. Just being out in our caravan in Nofolk and Suffolk is the best :)
