Arundel Day Trip

Went on a quick dad trip with Mom and Dad (Kirsten and Matt not my parents 😂) and baby Bennett! We met at Heathrow to pick up the rental car for the day- the trains for some reason weren’t running so we got a car instead. It took about 1.5hrs to drive down to Arundel….

2 Days in Albufeira

Stay: Sao Rafael Suites – All Inclusive Day 0 Our flight from London left about 5pm. We got our covid test to get into Portugal at the airport so we had to arrive a bit early, but thankfully got our results quickly and could relax in the airport! It was a 3hour flight to Faro,…

Porto Rafti

I had a full day in Greece by myself! (Nate left in the morning and my flight wasn’t until 8pm). I’ve already been to Athens so I decided to spend my day relaxing at the beach! A girl I played volleyball with in London is from Athens and recommended Porto Rafti for a nice beach…

2.5 Days in Santorini

Stay: Prime Suites, Oia (would not recommend) Day 0.5 Our ferry was supposed to leave Paros around 11am, however there was a strike that morning so it was 2hrs delayed! Unforunately, we were not made aware of the delay until we went and asked someone where the ferry was. If we’d known we could’ve tried…

2.5 Days in Paros

Stay: Sunset View Hotel Day 0.5 We arrived in Paros around 7pm. Our hotel was a little less than a mile from town, but took a bit longer to walk because we had our bags with us! The hotel is very nice though and has a great view of the sunset. We almost went into…

3 Days in Mykonos

Stayed: Constantina Zorz Xydakis (definitely recommend!) Day 1 We left Athens on an early ferry (7am). Thankfully we had no issues finding the boat so we boarded with plenty of time. The ferry ride was 2hrs 35mins so at 9:20 people started getting up to get off the ferry. Naturally we joined and disembarked the…

3 Days in Dorset

Airbnb- Wareham, Dorset: https://abnb.me/bR7z4ki7Xfb Tom picked Alyssa and I up from the Uxbridge tube station in London to drive down to our Airbnb in Wareham, Dorset. We arrived around 8pm and cooked some pasta before relaxing and going to bed. Day 1 I woke up around 8am and laid in bed for 30mins before I…

Exeter & Glastonbury

We planned a few stops for the day on our way back to London. We left the Wigwam around 9:30am and drove about 1.5hrs to get to Exeter. Exeter seemed like a decently big city- we went mostly to see the cathedral, but ended up walking along this pretty waterfront for a bit, which have…

Pendennis Castle & St. Michael’s Mont

The weather was not good or projected to get any better when we woke up. Strong winds, lots of rain – just the perfect outdoor weather! The area I had hoped to go (some ruins on an “island” you had to cross a bridge to get to) was closed due to the strong winds. So…

Sennen Cove – Minack Theater Coastal Walk

The Cornwall area is known for it’s many coastal walks. The coast is gorgeous with lots of little coves to explore. We decided to do the coastal walk from Sennen Cove to Minack Theater (around 7 miles), then get a cab back to Sennen Cove (where our car was parked). While it was a bit…

Stonehenge, Salisbury & Nunney Castle

We picked up the rental car from Heathrow in the morning to drive down to Cornwall. Since the drive is quite long, we decided to make a few stops on the way! I’ve lived in England for almost 2 years and still have not seen Stonehenge- so now seemed like the perfect time! I did…

Peak District

We drove up to our airbnb in Buxton after work Friday night (about 3.5hrs). We got in around 10pm and had some wine to cap off our night. Day 1 We had brekkie at our airbnb and then headed out around 10am to our “walk” for the day – Kinder Scout. I don’t really know…
