It was my birthday on Thursday, so my parents took us on a mini holiday to Bristol. Tom surprised me with a box of macaroons on the train, so we munched them on the way as breakfast. After arriving at the very fancy Brunel-designed train station...
we caught a ferry to the city center. They also do booze cruises, which sound like fun!
Bristol is famous for it's pirates (can you tell by the accent?)...
and graffiti, though we failed to spot any Banksy :(
Knitten Kitten Jenny told us to check out the awesome exhibition at the City Art Gallery.
I love this display of books. We told my Mum to pitch the idea to her library when she gets back.
Tom liked the robots.
I liked the cupcakes.
There was an awesome gypsy caravan, I've been trying to win one in my boxes of muesli :(
We wandered around Clifton afterwards and went for a coffee at the Boston Tea Party - a cute coffee chain, which I've only seen in Bristol.
Tom spotted an awesome train tea pot in a shop window. If anyone's in Bristol and could do me a favour, send me a message!
We spent the rest of the day exploring, then my parents treated us to dinner at Carluccio's. It was raining too heavy in the evening to do anything, so we snuggled up in the cinema and watched Salt.
Bristol was only 2 hours away by train, so I'm sure we can nip back anytime for another visit.
