Lifestyle Review: Bristol Adventures

38 comments
 Hello, hello! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Today's post follows my long weekend in Bristol with my two best friends.With streets filled with art, fun shops, great food and amazing views - here's a little photo diary of my three day trip.

 This was my first time visiting Bristol but I imagine I'll be dropping in quite often now that my best friend has moved here. I loved how quirky all the little shops were; the cathedrals and historic buildings, the kooky art and the friendliness of all the people. It was very hot and sunny and so we spent a lot of time exploring, checking out the sights and with drinks by the harbour. 

Artist Banksy is actually from Bristol and so there was so much of his work around the city and the street art is amazing. I think it's good to visit new, nearby places sometimes - being from London, I tend to stick to anywhere within reach on the tube map, my old University town or leave the country all together but so glad I ventured out within the UK. I've honestly never been to a more diverse, crazy town (in a good way). Thanks Vanessa for having me and showing myself and Ash around all weekend!

What fun new places have you visited recently? How was your weekend?
