Edinbrugh Fringe Festival

When Adam and I booked to go to Edinburgh for the Foodies Festival last August, it happened to fall conveniently on the first weekend of the world’s largest arts festival – Fringe Festival. The month-long event celebrates the arts in every way you can think of, displaying the most diverse performances of comedy, dance, music and exhibitions you will ever see. View Post

A luxury, central stay at Sycamore Suites | St Peter’s Close, Sheffield

Part of Adam’s birthday present in February was tickets to see the Kell Brook vs Sergey Rabchenko fight at the FlyDSA arena in Sheffield. Due to lots of snow and many train cancellations, we very nearly couldn’t make it but after travelling to Northallerton on the Saturday morning our last minute train detour seemed to go pretty smoothly. I booked an apartment for the night using Booking.com now called Sycamore Suites (it was Eskrine Apartments when we visited) which is located in the city centre of Sheffield, a short tram ride away from our venue for the evening.  View Post

If you’re planning your own trip to New York, I hope this post inspires you.  View Post
