When you’ve lived in the same country for your whole life, you sometimes forget about all of the beautiful places around you, and instead become fixated with other countries. Considering that I am still a university student, and don’t have the finances just yet to jet off to places each month, I have to make the most of what’s around me. The Peak District is not only an outstanding place to visit to see beautiful hills, greenery and wildlife, but it’s an adventure in its own right. A fun, challenging experience, with the option to indulge in a National Trust-standard cream tea at the end.
First off, I’d like to point out that this sort of thing is not my scene. We were going for my boyfriend’s mum – it was her birthday present.
My boyfriend has very kindly written a short piece on his time at Italian racetrack Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari. His enthusiasm has sparked my own obsession, not only with Formula 1, but also for the history of motorsport and cars in general. What makes it even more interesting, though, is the travel aspect that encompasses the sport, as it gives people the opportunity to visit countries all over the world while enjoying the Grand Prix, and they get a taste of culture along the way.
Want some Korean fast food in the heart of London? Look no further!
I live about an hour away from London on the train, but it’s rare that I take the time to go. I promised myself long ago that it would be the first capital city that I would visit, as it was my own, and I stuck to that promise on my first visit in 2012. Since then, I’ve worked out my favourite sights, stores, bars, restaurants and museums, and like to think of myself as one of those pretentious home-grown experts of the city (joking of course!)
