National science and media museum

When googling things to do in Yorkshire one website suggested the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford – a little further than we have ventured in the car but decided to try it out. Its free admission and pretty easy to get to – if you don’t take into consideration the crazy driving in…

The Royal Armouries

So we went for a date at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, my suggestion – I know, a funny place for a date but I had wanted to go for a while. So the museum was pretty easy to get to, even with virtually no parking on site. And as it is free admission I…

The Magical Kingdom

The most magical place on earth, we went to Disneyland Paris for a few days this summer and it was absolutely breath-taking. The castles and statues were beautiful and the characters were all full of energy and constantly bouncing. We decided to do the Disneyland park in the first day, we walked for miles and…

Madame Tussauds – madness in London

Madame Tussauds is both incredible and frustrating, you can see how popular it is by the hour long queues formed outside the front doors. I would definitely suggest that anyone who is wanting to visit should buy their tickets in advance and save themselves hours of waiting, especially if you only have a day or…

Harry Potter Studios

There’s not many films I really like, but the Harry Potter series is by far my favourite. I’ve watched them so many times I know them all word for word. A few months ago we decided to go to London for a weekend away, and in particular, the Harry Potter Studios. It was incredible. I’m…

The Greatest Showman

I’m not going to lie, when this film first came out I wasn’t interested at all. I remember being on the train with my mum and she asked what I wanted to see.. The Greatest Showman was not my suggestion, I had never seen the trailer and I’m not a fan of musicals so when…

The British Team Unite..

My experience in Thessaloniki taught me a lot, and I have memories that will last forever.. but my favourite thing about EVS is the friends I made when I was there. If it wasn’t for my time in Greece, I wouldn’t have met some amazing people, I wouldn’t have learned new languages or cultures. I…

Tropical Butterfly House

for £10 (student pricing) I was able to explore the Tropical Butterfly House, wildlife and Falconry centre near Sheffield, I went with my Brother, Sister and Nephew.. and the kids loved it. I suggest going in a warmer month because most of it is outside, yet the butterfly house is very hot, inside this building…

Shape of Water

The best thing about working in a theatre/cinema is that I get the chance to watch the movies and events being shown for free; although some are better than others. A few days ago I had a shift during the screening of the Shape of Water, a film I was sceptical about seeing due to…

Giving Blood

My first decision I made when arriving back in the UK was to help others in any way I can, and with that I registered with Anthony Nolan and as an organ donor. I then thought that even though this was going to be helpful (I’m hoping), it wasn’t something that would happen straight away,…

My Favourite Adventure

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved going to the zoo, I love animals and can spend hours just looking at them. My favourite place to visit is Yorkshire Wildlife Park, for one reason – the polar bears. I love polar bears. If I could I would spend all day just watching them,…

The Amsterdam Adventure

At the start of December I planned a mini cruise with my Best Friend to Amsterdam, somewhere I had always wanted to go but didn’t know what to expect. So, firstly I should mention that we went with P&O on a mini cruise, for £48 each we had a discounted upgrade for an outside cabin…
