Dare I say, the worst of the cold weather has gone, over 15 million brits have been vaccinated and the number of cases are definatley coming down. It looks like, we are coming to an end of this. And with that, we can start looking to the summer and planning things for when we are granted our freedom and safty.
Now then, I would be incredibly surprised if international travel was allowed at all this year. However, staycations and day trips will be incredibly popular. Personally, I cannot wait for the rule of six so me and my family can get some use out of our national trust passes and go and explore this incredible region!

I am in no way condonign or encouraging anyone to go traveling outside of their area to explore any of the places in this blog.
