This past bank holiday weekend we headed to Hay-on-Wye on the border of Wales specifically for the purpose of obtaining a lot of books. If you’ve been reading along for a while now this will come as no surprise but for those who may have stumbled across the blog for the first time the secret’s now out… I am a huge bookworm. Not only is Hay renowned for its many vast and unique second-hand bookshops but it also plays home to the Hay Festival, which just so happened to also coincide with our visit.



On the weekend of 10th & 11th September I happened to be in Bristol during the annual Bristol Open Doors Day, a celebration of the city’s history, architecture and culture explored through events and attractions that are made available to the public for free for the two days. Having never been to the city before this was the perfect opportunity to get a glimpse at some quirky art venues and beautiful old buildings (two of my favourite past times) I’d probably have otherwise missed.
