A Week In My Life: Spring Trip

Happy April, friends! How are you doing? How’s life? What’s new? The weather here in London is slowly warming up and spring has arrived for sure. I’ve done a few life updates recently but it’s been a hot min since I’ve shared a week in my life, and I think I mentioned recently that I’ve been wanting to bring back the lifestyle content, so here we are!

We’ve been off school this week and last and last week my fam took a trip to Yorkshire which was super lovely, we did a ton of walking and hiking which we all (especially the pup) enjoyed. We watched loads of movies, played lots of games, and relaxed a bunch… it was so nice to have a break from every day life and to be outside so much too! So here ya go, a week (away with me) in my life!

Sunday

Road trippin’! But okay I actually love car journeys… speeding down the motorway blasting Rhett (iykyk) only stopping for lunch and snacks haha! Didn’t get too many pictures but when we arrived at the cottage we unpacked and watched a movie. We were staying in the most stunning little cottage right on a river, surrounded by rolling fields and sheep… so pretty!

(Didn’t get any pictures from today)

Monday

Today was a super fun start to the week, we drove into the Lake District and walked around a little lake and through a pine forest. We made a pitt stop for coffee and food and then set off on a hike to some caves in an old quarry… we finally found them after over an hour, and they were absolutly stunning! We climbed up to another part of them and lifted up the dog, but then he couldn’t get down so we found a way out through some old mining tunnels which was quite an adventures. All together a pretty funny experience!

caves
oldest bridge in england??

Tuesday

Tuesday morning was a pretty chill one which was sweet. In the afternoon we hiked through a place called Swaledale which had all these old farming buildings that were kinda fun to find! We walked mostly along a river that wound through a valley, and the scenery was absolutly stunning.

Wednesday

Todays hike was a super wet one, but we thrived regardless lol. Again, beautiful scenery, we walked across a couple old viaducts through this valley we were in, which was pretty cool… it’s cray standing so high up in the middle of a valley… the wind was deafening! Cooper also had his first encounter with goats…

me pumped because i made it the whole walk without getting my hair wet
super wet walk

Thursday

By far my favourite day! We did a couple of hikes up hills and had the most breathtaking views over one of the lakes. The second of the two took about half an hour to get to the top but it was so high up that there was a tiny bit of snow… the first snow I’ve seen all year! The highlight of the day though… scroll for sunset pictures <33

yes we were hiding from the wind

Friday

To round up the week, my dad and I hiked out towards the summit of this hill which is known for having nine stacks of stone on top, known as the Nine Standards Rigg. We were short for time before we had to head back to London so we didn’t make it all the way, but it was a lovely walk, and the weather was the best it had been all week! We left the cottage around noon and were back home by sevenish, after having made an all essential trip to starbucks of course 😉

take 500… finally got him to look at the camera

And that’s about it, friends… pretty much everything I got up to last week. Let’s catch up down below… have you been away anywhere recently or gotten up to anything fun at all? I’d love to chat with you!
