Is it just me or does it feel like an incredibly long time since I last posted a lifestyle blog?
It’s been a busy couple of months and I feel like my weekends have been rather booked up, however, this weekend has been spent relaxing and getting odd jobs done that I haven’t had the chance to do in the week after work.
Thankfully I’m not going to bore you with the list of jobs that I’ve been completing, instead, I want to share the lovely trip I had to Bath last weekend.
As COVID is no longer impeding our everyday life, I was finally able to use my Thermae Bath Spa tickets that I received two years ago for my 21st birthday from Will’s parents.
Having not really ever explored the city that is actually quite close to home (only a 40 min drive), I wanted to make an occasion of it and spend the night and dedicate time to exploring and walking around the streets of Bath.
Having been a fan of Bridgerton which was filmed in Bath, I had a couple of locations in mind that I wanted to wander past, as well as my Dad’s recommendation of walking to Pulteney Bridge.
We arrived late Saturday afternoon and started our exploration on Bath’s beautiful streets.
We then had a lovely dinner in Bill’s followed by a hot chocolate there, and an early night in prep for our relaxing spa trip the following morning.
Sadly we couldn’t take photographs in the spa, but oh wow I can’t even begin to tell you how spectacular the rooftop pool was.
As a big bath lover (not to be mistaken with Bath the city- although I do now love the city too), sitting in glorious warm water and looking out across Bath’s scenery was a dream come true!
Since when was it socially acceptable to sit in a bath for so long? The only reason I would normally get out of the bath is if it had gone off cold!
The spa also had jacuzzis, saunas, and steam rooms (although it turns out I really don’t like steam rooms as I am unable to breathe in them… not sure why they are so popular?!).
We were both very relaxed after this so decided we need lunch and a coffee to wake ourselves up. We returned to Pulteney Bridge and ate some delish paninis at Pulteney Kitchen.
From here we walked to the Royal Crescent and pottered around slowly making the most of the sunshine before heading home.
I’m incredibly grateful for the gorgeous sun, and the tickets I received 2 years ago to go to the spa, AND the hotel points that my Dad let me use to pay for the room– thanks Dad.
Weekend breaks are something I rarely do but having been to Bath this month, and London in January, staycations and city breaks are something I definitely want to make time to do more of.
The trip was a lovely pre 23rd birthday and late 21st Birthday treat.
Thanks to Will for the excellent company as always.
