Although I live relatively close to Birmingham and am there all the time, if I go for a night out then I can’t get home unless I leave before the last train which is at 23:15, which is pretty annoying, especially as I used to be just a 10 minute Uber ride away from the city centre! Luckily, Birmingham has a great selection of hotels in and around the city centre so there’s plenty of choice when I need to pick one to stay in.

Back in December, Rachel came down to Birmingham to see me and we went to the Clothes Show Live and then wanted to spend the evening wandering around the Frankfurt Christmas Market which meant that the best option was to stay in a hotel. We were lucky enough to get a room at one of Birmingham’s newest hotels based at the Mailbox, AC Hotel which is a part of the Marriott group. View Post

Walt Disney World is a very hyped up place – it seems as though everyone who has been has loved it and many people go again and again. As I’d never been before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’ve been to Disneyland Paris four times before and although I have always enjoyed it, the last time I went was for five days and I found myself getting bored of it.

The first park we visited in Walt Disney World was Magic Kingdom. We went here on my birthday so that I could have breakfast with Winnie The Pooh at Crystal Palace and also have dinner at Be Out Guest. Out of all of the parks, Magic Kingdom is the one that is most like Disneyland Paris as it has the castle (although Cinderella’s instead of Sleeping Beauty’s), it has similar rides and it also has Main Street USA. After a few hours in the park and once I had been on most of the rides, I found myself getting a bit bored as it was so similar to Disneyland Paris, so I headed back to the hotel room for a shower and a rest. Throughout the whole holiday, I only went to Magic Kingdom twice and didn’t ever do a full day there! View Post
