Photo Diary#11 A weekend in Bath

Hey kids,you all seemed to like the video I popped up from the weekend, so I thought I'd show you some snaps from Bath tonight.
Last weekend, Stef and I decided to escape the hectic London life, and head to the beautiful city of Bath.
Friday night ended up being a bit of an impromptu bar crawl, starting with chocolate martinis (yes, they do actually taste of chocolate) and a bottle of wine on the train, before we had even arrived, hiccup!
We dumped our things at the hotel and headed to a few of the bars I used to go to as a student in Bath.
Needless to say, after a bottle of prossecco and a few more cocktails, we woke up a little worse for ware on Saturday morning, we're such a bad influence on each other...

We had a lovely big lie in and headed to one of my favourite pubs, 'The Raven' for one of their famous home-made pies, just what you need with a beast of a hangover. We walked around by the weir, I showed Stef a couple of my old flats, The Cresant, The Circus, and The Abbey. As we sat down in the Abbey, there was an orchestra and choir rehearsing, it was so relaxing when we were feeling a little fragile from the night before. Perfect timing!

Oh, we also paid a trip to the famous Sally Lunns tea-rooms, for a famous Sally Lunn bun, a toasted brioche type bread with melted cinnamon butter on top, UH-MA-ZING! Seriously, the best thing you will ever taste. I am currently obsessed with all things cinnamon as a result.
On Saturday night, we dined in a gorgeous candle-lit, intimate little French bistro, the food was incredible.

We did the typical tourist thing today, and visited the Roman Baths, it's got to be done hasn't it? We headed up town for a warm winter veg soup in 'Same-Same but Different' before catching the train back to Paddington.

We were so lucky with the beautiful sunny crisp winter weather, it made for some gorgeous shots! I'll admit, I did feel rather nostalgic revisiting the city that I studied and lived in for 4 years, it's always going to be nice to go back.
