In August of last year I finally got to visit the Black Country Living Museum near Birmingham. I say finally as this museum had been on my social-history-addict-museum-lover radar for quite some time and availed of a visit to a good friend to spend a day at the museum.
Following on from my last post about my trip to Palma, Mallorca last September let’s go on a walk through the back streets of the old town of Palma and explore the architectural gems of one of Spain’s most magical cities.
Last September when the leaves were falling of their branches and the weather was turning towards Autumn I took a quick weekend away to Palma, Mallorca to get the last of the summer sun. I love the sun, the heat and everything that goes with it BUT my skin does not. My skin burns, prickles and blisters in the heat – hence why I went to Mallorca in Septemer.
After a wonderful night’s sleep in twin beds! (This is the only room the hotel had left for a reasonable price!) we awoke and a wonderful breakfast at The Corrie Hotel. The only problem being that the waiter assumed I eat pork (which I don’t) and gave me a full Scottish breakfast! This was soon rectified with a lovely vegetarian breakfast and we were soon on our way to explore the rest of Arran!
Now that I’m living on the west coast of Scotland it means that I can explore this part of the world and further afield without having to worry about extortionate ferry and plane prices. I just have to hop in my car and drive to explore some of the most stunning scenery in the UK. With this in mind last weekend my boyfriend and I hopped in the car and took a ferry over to the Isle of Arran.
