You have heard the saying, you can take a girl out of (name of place) but you can’t take (name of place) out of the girl! No matter how far and wide you travel, you always want to come back home and this is true of me and Yorkshire.
2016 will be something of a year of adventure for me. My blogging work has seen me taking on some fantastic travel ambassadorships and this year I will be going on holiday with both Carnival Cruise Lines and Canvas Holidays so that I can share my experiences and offer a blogging mum’s perspective on these companies for family travel. In addition I have a vacation planned with my nearest and dearest, and we also have two family weddings this year. The hen party for one of those weddings will see me taking a girls’ trip to Amsterdam (a place I have never been and always wanted to visit) and then later in the year the other family wedding takes place in Sicily.
There will be various weekend breaks along the way, some work related (like going to #BML16) and some just for fun. I’m blessed to have created a job for myself that gives me access to these fantastic opportunities and also to have such an awesome family around me where I can celebrate their fabulous weddings(!) But I also know that as much as I love travel, I also love being home.
Yorkshire may not always be the sunniest place on earth but it is green and beautiful. There is a lot of history in the walls – just stroll around the Georgian architecture of York, or the wide range of notable buildings and design styles on the street of Leeds. A day spent with your camera in one of these cities with no particular agenda is a day of luxury, and one I must indulge in soon- as I type, I’m reaching for my lens!
I wanted to share with you a video I created about some of my favourite places in Leeds.
Have you ever been to Leeds or Yorkshire in general? Where did you visit? Let me know in the comments. If you ever find yourself in my neck of the woods, do stop a while and enjoy Yorkshire hospitality. One thing we are excellent at is making a pot of tea!
