3 best brunch spots in Manchester

EDIT: I wrote this post a while ago, last month in fact after heading up to the beautiful, vibrant city to meet friends. I had it scheduled this week and thought to remove it in light of recent events but then realised, no. Manchester is still a great place, full of kind people (more than any other place I’ve experienced in the UK) and still a wonderful place to travel to. So I’m going to post this because I had an amazing time in the warm city, eating my way through locally created and lovingly built cafes, from Brits to Aussies that are welcomed in the city, and I hope it inspires people to go and experience the place for themselves be it the first time or the fiftieth time. I also hope you enjoy it and can feel the love that I felt when I was there. And hey, nothing can stop us Brits from brunching and carrying on with our day as we power on and don’t let fear stop us doing what we love with people we love.)

I’ve heard Manchester be called the ‘Shoreditch of the North’. When I think of Shoreditch, I think of a modern place with forward-thinking people, as well as some of the most exciting and new places to eat. Manchester is definitely all that, especially when it comes to finding the perfect place for brunch.

This had its own benefits of stumbling upon the tiniest places to eat and grab a late coffee to soak up the culture. Continue Reading

Exploring my hometown through new eyes: 24 hours in Witney, Oxfordshire

A few months ago, as I was browsing the monthly magazines, I spotted a little guide to Witney in Glamour Magazine. As my hometown, I was both surprised and proud. When you grow up in a place, you take it for granted; I just saw it as the town where I went to the Odeon every Orange Wednesday, drank at the pub at the weekends and mooched around the Boots on my school lunch break.  Continue Reading
