Stylish Bath tales

Every now and then you just need to get out of the city, town or village you live in and have an explore no matter how far or close it is to home. We both love Bristol/Somerset area and realised that even though we have both been to Bath we have not been together so it was time for a little family exploring to the beautiful city. First stop though was at Bristol Zoo for Mr A to see the Dino exhibition and also the monkeys which he loved. Since we are nearing moving house we had to do this short break on a budget and so we stayed at the basic but very central Travelodge on George street. Since we checked in on Sunday evening there was not that much open so we just decided to take a stroll into town and see what tickled our taste buds and John felt like a burger so we ended up at TGI Fridays and John not only had a burger but had the MEGABurger - it was huge! Mr A also won over the staff with his love for the TGI friday balloons.

In the morning John walked to a little deli and picked up some amazing coffee and pain au chocolat (love it) and we got ready to take on the day. We where very lucky with the weather - even though it wanted to rain it stayed dry all day. First of all we visited the Oxfam Boutique which had a really amazing DKNY jacket but alas it was far to big but I really want to visit this store again, there are a lot of finds to be had here. We then proceeded to the centre of town and to the large and very beautiful Cathedral where a busker played some really good spanish guitar and Mr A danced in the street while John ate a rustic sausage from the local stall. You could spend all weekend walking around the boutiques and little shops in bath - there is something around every corner and so many culinary treats to eat. We walked along the bridge and above the weir and through Bristol market where we picked up a yummy samosa from another deli. We then spent the rest of the day in the park by the weir - you have to pay to enter this park - only £1.20 but it is so well kept and has won loads of awards and it great for children to run around. Mr A loved chasing the ducks and they have a very cute little cafe were we had some more yummy treats. All in all it was a great short break and we really loved the relaxed street style in Bath with an edge of boho chic - would love to live there!
