Day Trips With My Lover

Since being home from university, I’ve not been able to see my partner as much as we would like. As I met him while I was up in Cheshire, being back in Bedfordshire does make things a bit harder. Luckily we’ve been able to plan a few days out and for him to meet my family.

First place we was able to go was Country File Live which takes place at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, which was amazing. Countryfile has always been an important Sunday watch in mine and his household. As soon as you enter the grounds, you’re met with 1000s of different foods, drinks, vodka and gin. Everything I love!

Countryfile Live offers lots of shops, stalls and even places to purchase a brand new car. There was lots going out throughout day, like talks from Matt and the other presenters, camera crew filming and demonstrations, like the Duck and Dog.

And there is no visit to Country File Live without going to ‘Adam’s Farm’, where livestock was kept and there was a chance to speak to REAL farmers, which I think is important to help educate the public on farms.

My partner and I also visited London, which was brilliant. Even though I live so close to London, I’ve never been! (mostly because I hate the busyness of the city and prefer the country side) We visited the Palace, Parliament, Big Ben, London Eye, Marble Arch, Tower Bridge and all the other touristy places. We walked for miles down Regent Street and of course found Barbour! Where I purchased a lovely coat in the sale!

If you are ever in London I would recommend the museums, (free of charge) Science and Natural History. They are both huge places and you could really make a day of it! The kids will also love it! Very interactive and you’ll learn a lot.. I know I did!

We walked and we walked until we couldn’t walk anymore, sleepy and tired we jumped on the train home, got ourselves a Dominos and snuggled up in bed.

Perfect end to a perfect day!
