What “stupid tourist” moment have you had recently?
One of the highlights of Bristol is its Clifton Observatory and its similarly named suspension bridge.
We first scaled the hill on this particularly spectacular day to take in the views of the bridge and the gorge below. Many residents were picnicking atop the rise, and we just enjoyed the sun in the otherwise cloudy UK for a bit.
Have you ever been to a cat cafe? Which is your favorite?
One of the first things we did upon entering the vibrant city of Bristol was hit up their cat cafe, You and Meow. We’re obviously a little obsessed with cats, as we dote on ours back at home and let those abroad dictate where we travel next. (Not to mention, we have a dedicated Instagram account for crocheted duplicates of our kitties at home who travel the world with us!)
The UK and Ireland were not originally on our list for our world tour, as we knew they would be expensive countries. However, with enough house-sitting, we made the trip very affordable. Thankfully, this allowed us to stay for about a month and a half while seeing some top sites and even getting out into the countryside. Being in some English-speaking locations for a bit was refreshing. Seeing what felt like America’s great uncle was also fascinating as there were so many similarities. Here is a sampling of some places we visited and a short video with the highlights from this part of our world trip.
