5 Places to Visit – UK

I think its safe to say that 2020 has not been the year for travel, and although I was lucky and got a couple of trips in before lockdown, I have definitely been suffering from wanderlust during the summer. With travel opportunities hopefully starting to open up again in the near future, I’ve decided to do a series of blogs covering places on my bucket list. This one has five places within the UK, and next week one will follow with five places in Europe.

A Day in Dover

Dover is one of the UK’s major ports, providing a vital connection across the narrow Straits of Dover to France & continental Europe. The town has been an important town since at least Roman times when it became a fortified port and has served as a key point in the defence of the nation during multiple conflicts from the Napoleonic Wars to World War 2.

Amsterdam Spotting

This is the third of three posts I’ve written covering our trip to The Netherlands back in February/March. The first, which you can find here, was all about our visits to two aviation museums and some of Flevoland’s oldest and highest bits of land. The second, here was all about our day in Amsterdam itself, whilst this post has a little bit of exploring the wider Netherlands but is mostly about the various spotting opportunities at Schiphol airport.

Ambling around Amsterdam

This is the second of three posts I’m planning covering our trip to The Netherlands back in February/March. The first, which you can find here, was all about our visits to two aviation museums and some of Flevoland’s oldest and highest bits of land. This post is all about our visit to the Dutch capital itself, whilst the final post will be about spotting at Schiphol airport with a few other bits of The Netherlands thrown in.
