One of my greatest pleasures in life, other than laying on my sofa and morphing into the comfy little potato I am, is going out for something to eat. Generally, I will always favour eating in a pub to a restaurant, I’m definitely more of a low-key, comfy venue lover rather than something a bit more swanky, so when I was asked to pop along to The George and Dragon pub in Mountnessing I jumped at the chance.
On my birthday last year I set myself a task to visit 12 new places by the same time this year and, with the striking of midnight and saying goodbye to the absolute mess that was 2017, I promised myself that 2018 would be full of happiness and adventure. So far, so good – 2018 has seen a lot of smiles, a lot of laughs and my calendar is full of exciting times ahead, the most recent of which was a weekend in Devon.
It’s the first payday weekend of the year and you can hear a collective sigh country-wide as everyone finally has a bit of cash in their pockets. With most of us getting paid prior to Christmas it felt like a long old month, but all of that’s in the past now and if you’re planning to spend some dollahhhhs this weekend and treat yourself to a night on the town DO I HAVE A RECOMMENDATION FOR YOU.
Within the past year or so I’ve found myself developing a hankering to see the world. I’m not the most travelled person, only having been abroad since I hit adulthood, but with each passing day it feels like I want to explore more and more of the world.
Being active on social media and regularly reading blogs definitely adds to this, and I now find myself with a long list of places I want to visit, although none of the budget to allow me to do this.
As you’ve probably gathered from the posts of this week, I absolutely loved Amsterdam but I’m all too aware that in the short space of time I was there, I only managed to scratch the surface of what the city has to offer and there is so much more to do.
With this in mind I’ve already started doing some research for a return trip, hopefully next year, and have put together a little list of things I want to do in Amsterdam when I’m next there.
