How To Get In The Holiday Spirit? || The Travel Tag

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. You’re probably surprised I have another blog post LOL. I made a promise that I will keep publishing again like I used to and I am going to make that happen. I have planned out so many interesting and fun blogs that I am looking forward to sharing with you in the next upcoming months. For those of you who don’t know, I have two mini holiday breaks coming up which is why I wanted to do this little holiday travel tag to help get me in the holiday spirit. I am going to Belfast on Thursday 26th July to Sunday 29th July and I am going to Budapest on Friday 3rd August to Monday 6th August. I am so happy to be going away. If you would like any specific travel posts regarding these places please comment below as I would love to do helpful travel posts. Now without further ado… let’s move straight on.

Which countries of the world have you already visited?

Unfortunately, I haven’t been to a lot of places as I didn’t begin going on holiday until I was 16 years old. The places I have been to in chronological order are Disney Land (Paris), Marsa Alam (Egypt), Manila (Philippines), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Belfast (Nothern Ireland) and a range of places in the United Kindom.

Which destination is the number one of your bucket list? 

This is very easy for me to answer as I have always dreamed of going to Australia… more specifically Melbourne and/or Sydney.

What is your most ideal holiday?

My most ideal holiday would definitely be something very spontaneous. I would love to go travelling unexpectedly… perhaps with a camper van and just see where the roads take me. I would love to do this will my boyfriend Kevin. It would be the best thing ever. It would be lovely. As long as we have a great time, I don’t even mind where we go. It would just be nice to explore, have fun and take a wild adventure.

Which place did you think was so special that you would love to go back there sometime?

Definitely, Disney Land Paris as it was mine and Kevin’s first day together in a relationship. I would absolutely love to go back there on one of our anniversary’s because it would mean a lot to me. I have always been one of those traditional people who treasure special moments like that. It would be nice to see Paris too as we never explored the city. We just stayed at Disney Land for our college trip. In February 2019 it will be mine and Kevin’s 5th year anniversary… hint hint hint LOL. I would love to go for our 5th year together.

Show us your nicest holiday photo:

Did you have to travel for work sometime? If yes, where?

Sadly… no! My job does not require me to travel around the world. Although, it would be amazing to travel and work at the same time. You would be able to learn so much, not just from working, but culturally.

With who are you mostly going on holiday? 

My boyfriend Kevin. Most of my holidays have been with Kevin. It was just Amsterdam that Kevin didn’t come to as it was my sister’s hen party weekend.

Would you rather go to an amusement park or zoo?

Personally, this is rather tricky for me. I don’t do either of them a lot and I have never thought about this question before. I think I would probably choose an amusement park as long as Kevin could come with me because we would have a lot of fun whilst spending a lot of money LOL.

Would you rather go on a sun or ski holiday?

A very easy question for me to answer… SKI!!!!! Of course, I would choose that. I have never been on a ski holiday. I would always choose something that I have not done or only done a little. I love trying new things and experimenting. I have been to a range of sunny holiday places, so I would definitely try a ski holiday if I had the chance too.

What holidays do you have planned this year?

I am soooooooo happy to share this with you. I have been so excited about going on holiday which is why I wanted to do a post like this to help get all the excitement out, as well as give you more information about myself. I only have two short city breaks this year for my holidays, although I do prefer going to places for a few days as I tend to miss home in 4 days anyway. Tomorrow, I will be travelling to Belfast in Northern Ireland for 3 days to visit my family over there and to do a little bit of sight-seeing with of course Kevin. My second short city break is happening on 3rd August until the 6th August and I am going to Budapest with Kevin and 3 other friends. I am looking forward to this a lot because we have planned out the whole holiday ensuring we make the most of the time in Budapest. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF FUN!

I am going to nominate 5 people who I think should do this blog post:

  1.  Emma 
  2. Isla
  3. Sophie
  4. Anne
  5. Life Travel Soul

Thank you so much for popping back onto my blog. It means so much to me. I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post. Now… I challenge YOU to do this tag if you are going on holiday anytime soon. It is definitely the perfect way to get you in the holiday spirit. If you would like me to do any blog posts specific to Belfast or Budapest please let me know. I would love to give you any advise and share my experiences with you. I hope you have a great end to the week and an amazing weekend!

From,

Visiting Marwell Zoo.

Last weekend, my partner and I thought it would be a nice idea to go to Marwell Zoo, in Winchester, for the very first time. I have never actually been to a zoo, so this was very interesting yet overwhelming for me at the same time. In this blog post, I will discuss my time there as well as show you the beautiful photographs that I captured. There are many discussions about whether or not zoos are good or bad, in regards to the welfare of the animals and the ideologies that they should be free and not ‘caged’. I am for the idea that animals should have as much freedom as possible and should live a healthy equal life.

Marwell Zoo was actually rather lovely and at the same time, I was thinking whether or not it’s cruel for them to be kept there. I have never been to a Zoo before so this was difficult for me to make a judgement on. I thought the animals seemed happy and had plenty of space to move around, as well as a lot of food and water. I think that zoos are a good idea if the animals are happy, cared for and have plenty of freedom. Every animal that I got to see had a lot of space to move around and were cared for at all times. The staff at Marwell are very compassionate and care about the welfare of the animals. I felt like the money I paid to visit the animals would be well distributed and that would care for the animals. It was really nice to see these animals in real life because I haven’t seen any of them before. Although I have only been to one zoo in my life, I can only talk about this from my own personal experience. Below are some photographs which I managed to capture so that you could see for yourselves the animals I saw.

I hope you enjoyed looking at the photographs I captured from Marwell Zoo. I honestly do not have a problem with this Zoo. It appeared to be well run and that the animals come first which is beautiful. It was so mesmerising to see all these fascinating animals and I hope that should I go to another zoo again, it would be just as equal and compassionate. Thank you so much for heading over to my blog. It does mean a lot to me and I am grateful to everyone who comes on. Don’t forget the have a look at my other blog posts and more importantly my photography pages. The full gallery of Marwell Zoo can be seen here. Don’t forget to comment below of what your opinions are on zoos and whether or not you have been to Marwell.
