I’m writing this on the plane home, *sob*, heading back to the UK after a week in sunny Santorini. It’s a truly beautiful island, and there’s so much to see and do, so just a few quick facts before I get into it! We went on a package holiday with Thomson, which has its pros and cons. Transfers and everything sorted, but little say over timings etc. I think for our first time visiting Santorini, it was a good idea. Were we to go again,…Continue Reading “This is… Santorini, Greece”

Broadway is a small town in the Cotswolds with a ton of quaint gift shops and some of the best food known to man (just kidding, but it’s pretty damn good). I’ve visited three times in the last three months so that’s got to count for something! I really love visiting Broadway, and so I thought I’d take you guys on a little tour of the town, with some recommendations of where to go and, most importantly, what to eat! There really is just one main street…Continue Reading “This is… Broadway, UK”

A while back, I took a trip with my mum and my grandma to Bath for a night away. It was for my mum’s birthday so we had a bit of a celebration, and it was really lovely to spend some quality time just the three of us. As we were only there for one night, and we had previously made a day trip there, we didn’t see everything Bath has to offer. However, I’ll try to throw in recommendations where I can! After checking…Continue Reading “This is… Bath”

I thought it was about time that I wrote this post, as it has now unbelievably been a month since we travelled to Bled in January. I can’t believe the time has gone so quickly! These ‘This is…’ posts are going to be designed to cover both an overview of my trip, plus a travel guide-type element for any of you thinking about or planning on visiting. Over the next couple of months – before I jet off to Barcelona – I’m hoping to get…Continue Reading “This is… Bled”

This is a bit of a belated post, but it’s something I did want to write about. Last weekend, Matt and I went away on the Friday night for our anniversary, to a little hotel near Broadway, which isn’t that far away from where I live in the Cotswolds. It’s a cute little town, with some great cafes and pubs, and LOTS of super cute gift shops. Just my kind of place! We set off early in the afternoon, and the weather was actually okay when…Continue Reading “A Classic Cotswolds Escape”

  Apologies for my short absence, but I have once again been on holiday! This has been quite the year for holidays, one which I know I won’t get to recreate any time soon, and so I jumped at every opportunity to get out of the country (or sometimes just to other parts of the country). As you may be able to tell, this time Matt and I jetted off to Bratislava, in Slovakia. Most people, when told where I was going, would either reply…Continue Reading “Ďakujem, Bratislava”

Welcome to my new website! The same This is Lilli blog with a brand new domain name and snazzy new layout and design. Yay! I’ll be 100% writing the same kinds of posts, basically about anything and everything that interests me, plus all of my old posts have been transferred here so they’re all there for everyone to take a look at. This has all come about because it was mine and my boyfriend’s two year anniversary over the weekend (well, Friday, but we decided…Continue Reading “New Website, Anniversary, and Christmas – Updates #2”

The title of this post pretty much sums up what was most important to me on my recent holiday to Egypt. My boyfriend Matt and I stayed at a HUGE hotel complex in Sharm El Sheikh, and as expected it was absolutely gorgeous. and ridiculously hot. Weather like this… … unfortunately meant that our air conditioned room quickly became a cool haven at numerous points during the day, which only slightly cut into our tanning time. Okay, I could barely lie in the sun for more…Continue Reading “Sun, Pool, Cocktails, and Air Conditioning”
