It’s been 3 weeks since I posted here, and honestly, it feels like 3 months instead. It’s been a super busy month, and I’m not exaggerating when I say this might be the busiest I’ve been in the last 2.5 years. What with moving house, parents’ visit and a bit of traveling, and dealing with documents and bureaucracy, it’s really hard to find time to sit back and relax. I used to wonder when people told me they were so busy they didn’t have time to read, how could that be? But now that’s the case with me.
This blog has taken a back seat for the last few weeks, but this morning I woke up with a sudden itch to blog, and so here I am writing this post.
Two weeks ago, we made a stop at Bath on our way from Rhayader to Southampton, to show this beautiful city to my parents. Bath is one of my favorite cities in the UK, and it didn’t disappoint!
While my mom and sister went inside the abbey, H and I sat on the bench outside, listening to a busker singing pop songs.
It was a gorgeous day, and the city was packed! I don’t think I’d seen Bath that crowded before.
It was beautiful, nonetheless.
I strolled around by myself for about half an hour, walking away from the crowd and the busker singing Don’t Look Back in Anger, through the cobbled alleyways. Things were much calmer here. I didn’t expect much from this wandering, but as usual, Bath always had surprises, even in the tiniest, dingiest corners.
Have I told you Bath has the prettiest independent shops? My favorite kind.
In the late afternoons, as my parents retreated to the hotel for a quick nap, my sister, H, and I went to a park nearby. They charged 1.5 quids per person (“Heinous!” H claimed, and I agree), but it was a beautiful park so we paid, despite feeling robbed.
And so that was Bath trip for the parents! I kept forgetting that we had to slow down and not squeeze too many places on the itinerary when we travel with the parents.
If you’d like to see more photos of Bath, I wrote another post back then (with more pictures, and during Christmas time!), so have a read here: Christmas 2014 and A Bit About Bath
Postcards for the readers
And now, I have some postcards that I picked up in Bath for my lovely blog readers! I LOVE postcards more than fridge magnets or any other souvenirs, mainly because I can write something on it.
I’ve never had a giveaway on this blog (not that I think these postcards can be counted as a giveaway, anyway), but I want to share a snippet of my favorite city with you. Maybe someday I’ll have a proper giveaway, but for now, I hope this is not too shabby ;)
If you’d like to receive a postcard, write a comment below, answering this question (hope you don’t mind!): what do you like about this blog, and what would you like to see more in here?
The lucky 4 will be chosen randomly.
Looking forward to hearing your answers! :)
Update: the giveaway is now closed as the winners have been chosen (thanks, random generator!). Thank you everyone for taking part, and congrats Nerissa, Christa, Okky, & Inly!
