Thank you very much to you all for reading, sharing and commenting on my blog wherejogoes.com. My first full month of blogging saw me enjoying reading lots of other bloggers’ posts, which I sometimes share on my Facebook and Twitter pages as they are great for travel ideas! Thank you all so much for the great feedback on my own blog too.
My 3 most popular posts in February were:
- SPEND THE NIGHT IN A HAUNTED CASTLE – ST BRIAVELS YOUTH HOSTEL click here .
It’s a popular place so if you are feeling brave and fancy being haunted for a night or two you may need to book well ahead.
2.LACOCK – TOP 5 THINGS TO DO, click here to read.
Lacock is one of England’s prettiest villages and the location for filming of Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice, Cranford and many more. It’s a lovely place to visit at all times of year. Do look out for the doorstep shopping where locals sell their wares on their doorsteps with honesty boxes for money. It’s a charming place with plenty of tea rooms and pubs as well as Lacock Abbey and the Fox Talbot Museum of Photography.
3. HOW TO GET A BLUE PETER BADGE
If you haven’t got a Blue Peter Badge I tell you how to get one here for free entry for your kids to 200 attractions.
Taking a more luxurious turn, for Valentine’s Day I shared the most romantic place I have ever stayed, La Chevre D’Or in Eze Village, South of France. A hotel where the rooms are in a medieval village, the restaurant has 2 Michelin stars and the views are unbeatable. A perfect place for a honeymoon, anniversary or special occasion.
Celebrating World Book Day, I shared a visit to the British Library with kids. As a first time visitor I was enthralled by the sheer range of literary history in the Treasures exhibition. From the Magna Carta to Beatles lyrics scrawled on the back of envelopes, each vellumed, dog-eared, ink-stained page of history shared its story. Everything in the exhibition is the original, from Da Vinci’s notebook to Florence Nightingale’s letters. Later in the year the Library will host an exhibition celebrating 20 years of Harry Potter which will no doubt be a big hit with children.
If you are travelling to Florida, look beyond the theme parks to the fabulous wildlife and beaches of South Seas Resort, Captiva Island. Manatees swimming in the marina outside your room, dolphins playing in the waves, herons patrolling the sea front and the beaches made of shells make this a simply wonderful place to stay. Sunsets here are out of this world and the cocktails are pretty good as well!
If you are in the South West, seek out Sunday lunch at the Pig Restaurant with Rooms near Bath. If you are from outside the area, even better you get to stay overnight!
Thank you for sharing my travels in February, here’s looking forward to Spring!
