Hello Everyone! Liv and I have always loved travelling and exploring the UK's cities, and while we've been able to tick the majority of them off of our list, Bath has been one that has long evaded us. So in the new year, Liv finally put her foot down and demanded we go, so off we went!

The first thing that I noticed about Bath was just how beautiful the architecture is. Despite the city having some newer buildings (most of the city is a few hundred years old) all the building s follow the same aesthetic, so all of the areas flow into each other seamlessly.

Whenever we do city breaks, we always try to look on Airbnb for places, as the flexibility that one gives is always worthwhile. Particularly in cities with lots of Georgian housing, Airbnb will always be a good shout, and we found this beautiful flat about a 15 minute walk from the city centre. What was great about Bath was the the city centre was relatively small, meaning that despite being there for just 48 hours, we could tick off loads of recommendations and still have time to just wander round and enjoy the city.

When you're only in a city for a brief amount of time, the main issue can be that there are too many restaurants and cafes to try out, and not enough time to actually fit it in. We therefore end up essentially snacking throughout the day across a few places, but even then we were only able to go through half of our recommendations! Two of my favourite places we visited were Sam's Kitchen and Society Cafe.

What I loved the most about this trip was the amount of conversations that we had when walking about, and popping into shops. From talking about feminist witch magazines with the owner of Magalleria, Parisian hide-outs with the couple who own Found, anniversary celebrations with the waiter in (it wasn't our anniversary!) or talking with the bartender at Hunter & Sons about their newest pale ale, everyone was not only friendly, but had a genuinely passion and enthusiasm to talk about work. I always find that the people can make or break a trip, turning a fine trip into a bad trip, or a good trip into a great one, so when you can so easily talk to locals (even as a cold horrible city type like myself), it can really bring the places to life and make it that much more memorable
