At the start of August me and my boyfriend went on our first holiday together, just a little break to the North West of England with stops in Bolton, Manchester, Preston and Blackpool. I went to university in Preston and I loved living up north, so I thought it was about time I introduced Jamie to it. My favourite part of our little holiday was the time we spent in Blackpool, I love Blackpool it’s got everything a British seaside destination should have. Yes, it’s a bit tacky and it’s full of undesirables but it just has a bit of old school charm that captured my heart on my first visit. I used to pop to Blackpool all the time when I lived in Preston as it’s only a short train ride away, and I really miss it now that I live in the middle of nowhere again.
We had some lovely weather while we were there, it was sunny the whole time! This meant that we spent a lot of time walking up and down the beaches. We even had a little paddle in the sea, which wasn’t the nicest colour but was refreshing on tired feet. We went on adventures up and down the piers, trying to dodge the gaps in the wooden planks and spending too many pennies in the arcades trying to win my baby sister a teddy. It was so nice to just be carefree and enjoy being together whilst having lots of fun. Our hotel was a bit rubbish to be fair but we didn’t really spend much time there so it was fine, think it only cost us about £50 for 3 nights too!
Have you been on holiday this year?
