Tasting The Festive Menu at Dakota Deluxe Leeds

Is it too early to be talking about Christmas? It might only be October but the Festive season seems to be creeping upon us already. On Wednesday, Stefan and I went across to Leeds to the Dakota Deluxe to taste their new Festive menu which will be launching on the 23rd November until Christmas Eve. The Dakota Deluxe which is located on Russell Street in Leeds City Centre is an absolutely stunning hotel. We’ve stayed here earlier in the year and the rooms are to die for, the whole decor is just beautiful. Given that the weather was in the…

How I Got Tickets to Visit The White House, Washington DC

One of my first stops whilst on my American Road Trip last October was Washington DC. Obviously DC is the US Capital City steeped in so much cultural and political history. To tell you the truth, DC was never on my list of places to visit. However, I quickly fell in love with the city. We spent two nights in the city (you can read about everything we got up to here) but one of the most memorable parts of the trip was visiting The White House and actually making it inside the grounds! One of our first port of…

My Stay At The Hotel Indigo, York

A couple of weeks ago, I turned the grand age of 24 and to mark the occasion, my boyfriend and I went on a little road trip. We started off in York before heading over to Liverpool, Chester and then on to Manchester. York is basically my second home, it’s about an hour away making it the perfect place for a stop off. The Hotel Indigo York had also invited us for a stay and we couldn’t wait to check out the hotel. I’ve previously visited the hotel which is on Walmgate; a short walk from the city centre for…

How to spend the day in Lucerne, Switzerland On a Budget

I can’t believe I’ve not written at all about my trip to Switzerland earlier this year. I was visiting a friend in Zurich but decided to take the train over to Lucerne for the day. The train cost 52 Swiss Francs which is about £40 for a 45-minute journey, quite expensive but Switzerland is a very expensive country. I had quite a few options of places to visit from Zurich on a day trip such as Bern or The Rhine Falls but decided Lucerne was the place to be. As I said Switzerland isn’t the cheapest of places but a…
