Happy 5 years to the blog! It’s been a wonderful 5 years of sharing and traveling — and here’s my yearly travel reflections and favourite moments of the year.
United Kingdom: Mynn’s Top 10 Things to Do in Edinburgh, Scotland
Once upon a time in my life, Edinburgh was home for about 3 years. I went back again one summer more than 30 years later — and rediscovered the city. Here is a list of the 10 things I remembered most on that visit.
United Kingdom: A Quick Getaway to Llandudno, Wales
A lovely time in this Welsh seaside town — I got to sit on a 100-year-old tram, got a bird’s eye view of rolling meadows, and explored a bronze-age mine.
United Kingdom: A Weekend in Bakewell, Derbyshire (Peak District)
My weekend visit to UK’s Peak District town of Bakewell — where you can find the famous pie, walk along a peaceful river and visit a stately home.
Exploring Newcastle in 24 Hours
A mix of old and new, medieval and urban; the city of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne exudes elegance and strength. With only 24 hours to explore the city, I wanted to take a walk into its olden times, while exploring its modern elements.
Mynn’s Top 10 Things to do in York
York is filled with an abundance of historical and cultural heritage; and it can be seen in every corner, every building and every street. It is like walking back into the medieval times.
My Day in Liverpool
Looking beneath its aging exterior, Liverpool is a vibrant city that is filled with cultural heritage; known for its strong love of football and for being the home of the world-wide sensation, the Beatles.
Road Trip: The Cotswolds and the English Countryside
I love road trips! So while spending my summer in the UK, I went on a road trip of the English countryside with my family. We chose to explore the rolling fields, green meadows and farm fields of the Cotswolds.
The Home of Shakespeare
Stratford-Upon-Avon is often associated with William Shakespeare. It was his birthplace, so the town is practically dedicated to him. We spent 2 days exploring Stratford-Upon-Avon, learning and getting to know his true genius.
A Day in Oxford
I visited Oxford as a 3-year-old and told my parents that I wanted to study here one day. That dream is long gone; but fast forward 20-odd years later, I am back with them again in the same city– to visit for a day.
