48 Hours In Cambridge

When Erin was maybe just over a year old we went on a last minute trip to Cambridge. We didn’t have the largest amount of time but we had a great visit and we’d said we would love to go back when Erin was a bit older. Now that Erin is nearly 4 we thought we would be in a better position to explore the city a bit more and to do more while we were there. This time, we managed to book our trip for John’s birthday so it was a great time to go away. Monday We have

A Family Getaway With YHA Cambridge

AD | Gifted stay Up until recently I will hold my hands up and admit that I was a bit of a snob when it came to travelling and where we stayed. A couple of years ago if you’d have asked me to stay in a caravan or a hotel I probably would have laughed at you. However, I’ve really become more open minded about staying in different kinds of accommodation that aren’t just a hotel room with a private bathroom. I want Erin to experience all different kinds of travel so on a recent trip we stayed at YHA

A Rainy Day In Cambridge

Yesterday you may have seen our review of Pint Shop in Cambridge. Katy from KatyKicker has been taking part in Greater Anglia’s #lettheadventurebegin campaign, as I did a couple of weeks ago when we took a trip to Lowestoft. We hadn’t seen each other since April at Blog On so I was looking forward to a catch up. Unfortunately, the started off pretty miserably as it was chucking it down with rain and showed no signs of stopping for the rest of the day. Erin was tired and grumpy on both trains we had to take to get to Cambridge

Restaurant Review: Pint Shop, Cambridge

AD | Gifted meal Last week I spent a day in Cambridge with Katy from KatyKicker and her gorgeous daughter Daisy. We both arrived at around 11am and after a couple of hours of travelling on the train I was getting pretty hungry. Thanks to Greater Anglia and their #lettheadventurebegin campaign, we already had somewhere booked for lunch. I couldn’t wait to get to Pint Shop, Cambridge. (There is another location in Oxford) Pint Shop is about a 20 minute walk from Cambridge Station and only a minutes walk from the market and the Grand Arcade Shopping Centre. Being in

Hotel Review: ibis Cambridge Central

At the beginning of April John, Erin and myself headed off to Cambridge for a last minute weekend away. When I say last minute, I mean I booked it the evening before we went. Not like me at all. Having never been to Cambridge before I had no idea where to stay by my sister recommended the ibis Cambridge Central. The ibis Cambridge Central can be found right at Cambridge Train Station so it’s in a fantastic location is this is how you’re traveling. From here you have about a 15 minute walk into the center of Cambridge. I didn’t

Last minute getaway to Cambridge

John and I were supposed to go to Cambridge for a weekend for my birthday/ Mother’s Day but it never happened due to illness. I managed to get a rare Saturday night off work though last minute so we decided to go away quite last minute. Travel Silly me didn’t think about checking trains before booking a hotel. It turned out that we happened to go on the one weekend where there was bus replacements part way, making our journey about 40 minutes longer than it should have been. Erin actually was quite good the whole way there but she
