Brunch at Rocotillos

In Bristol we had brunch in a lovely dinner where I ate the most delicious nachos and veggie burger that I have ever tried. The pancakes with vanilla ice cream were just the icing on the cake.

Journeys inside the Journey: Bristol

Bristol totally surprised me with its energy and artsy vibe. We spend the day walking and trying not to spend all of our money in the countless all kind of shops around the city. And when we were on our way to catch the train back home, we run into a street festival in honour of Banksy, full of young people chatting, painting graffities, dancing and having fun! It was incredible! Bristol is now on my places-where-I-would-like-to-live-some-day list.

Journeys inside the Journey: BATH

A few weeks ago we went to Bath. After two hours and fifteen we arrived to what is known as the most beautiful city of England. And the truth is that it’s amazing: honey-coloured stone Georgian beautiful buildings, elegant streets, narrow passages, parks and gardens full of people, all kind of shops, charming restaurants and bakeries… it seems a fairy tale town.  We spend all day walking and walking… but we didn’t have enough time to visit some museums or do some shopping (I just went to an incredible three floor’s library). So, I hope that I have a free Saturday before I have to leave to come back to Bath to: go with a boat along the canal, take a tea in a cafĂ© that I saw with views over the canal, visit The Postal Museum and the Jane Austin Centre and maybe do some shopping.
