Bol, Brac

This was the first island we visited from split and got on the ferry at 7:30am so we arrived there super early. We jumped into the supermarket at the pier and grabbed some water and snacks for the day.

As it was so early we thought we would top off and have some coffee in a cute little bar on the edge of the sea. It was lovely and we sat for quite a while just enjoying the view. We ended up popping back in the afternoon for a cocktail as well!

We saw an amazing beach from the ferry which turned out to be Bol so we walked along the path to find that. It was only about a 20 minute walk from the ferry port snd the walk was so beautiful. You could see the sea along the whole path and there were some amazing viewpoints along the way, as you can see from below.

When we got there the beach was empty so we got our choice if where to sit. None of the stalls were open at this point so we went for a swim and sat and sunbathed for a while. The stalls began to open and there was an amazing fruit stall which we got beautiful fresh fruit from which was so refreshing whilst sunbathing.

The beach was rocky so I think it would have been easier to get in and out of the sea if we had bought rock shoes which were on sale everywhere and now we know why! The water was beautiful here and throughout the day lots of yachts docked at the beach as well.

We came back to the town to get some lunch which was mediocre but had a lovely view so we weren’t complaining too much!

We had to head back for the ferry so we stopped off and had some coffee at the pier where the ferry would come in and ended up having so much coffee because it’s just so nice in Croatia! Where is it not nice though?!

There were a few resorts on the island that we saw and we would definitely have went back to Bol and elsewhere on Bra─Ź if we had been staying longer so I would definitely recommend it. It was a bit more expensive than split but we had expected that with it being an island.

London

Okay so a few weekends ago my friends came down to visit and we spent a day in London. I’ve been to London before a few times but some of the others hadn’t so we made our way round as tourists for the day!

after getting the train from Leamington we jumped on the underground and went straight to Camden Lock to grab some lunch in the markets! We all went in different directions to try out different food and the nicest looking one was definitely the loaded fries!

Sorry about the photo quality had to screenshot from a video! But how amazing do they look?!

After filling our bellies we continued on to Buckingham Palace. We stopped off and took some snaps and chilled out on the stairs for a while. It was really busy so we walked on towards Westminster along the edge of the park which was so nice to see such a beautiful park right in the centre of busy London!

We reached Big Ben and Westminster and went on to see the London eye. So many tourist spots in the one area so Westminster bridge was really busy!

We went down and booked in for the London dungeons but had a bit of a wait so we IMG_0442walked along the riverside and came across an area called the underbelly festival which was amazing! We went in not really knowing what to expect and were met with a garden with massive flowers, picnic benches and food and drink stalls. We grabbed a drink and chilled in the sun playing cards for a while it was great!
We went to the dungeons and had the best time it was such a laugh and we all got a fright at one point (or more!) which made it hilarious for everyone else!

After the dungeons our day was pretty much done. We walked up to Trafalgar Square and sat by the fountains for a while to chat about where to go for dinner. We decided on prezzo as they have so many options and a fab range of gluten free as well! After dinner it was home time so time to head for the train and get ourselves back to Leamington.

We definitely managed to cram a lot in to our day but you would ideally need at least two days to get round everything! We all got home and fell asleep pretty soon after which was well deserved after the amount of walking we done! I might have had sore feet at the end of the day but I’ll definitely be back!
