Next Stop: Whitby, England

IMG_0350

The beautiful seaside town of Whitby is situated on the east coast of Yorkshire in the Borough of Scarborough. With a beautiful historic Abbey located on the high ground of the North York Moors, the seaside town is surrounded by a gorgeous harbour and alluring fishing port that emerged during the Middle Ages. I visited Whitby on an incredibly sunny and warm March afternoon and I firmly believe that it is a fantastic town to visit for a day trip or getaway weekend trip during superb weather. Traveling to Whitby for the day was just the thing I needed to relax and enjoy the beautiful seaside landscape of England. From walking along the pier and extended fishing port to eating traditional British fish and chips from vast amount of “Voted England’s #1 Best Fish and Chips” venues, Whitby is just one of those tourist locations in England that everyone should see and experience.

How To Get There: There is a train station as well as coach services located in the heart of Whitby, so getting there isn’t that difficult through this sort of transportation. If you plan to drive, the best place to park your vehicle for the day would be the car park near the Whitby Abbey situated on the high grounds of the city. I paid £4 for 6 hours of parking, which was enough for me to see the Abbey, walk along the harbour and beach, shop throughout the shambles, grab some traditional fish and chips while sitting along the water enjoying the views, and experiencing a variety of other activities and sights. Beware of seagulls.

Falling For Autumn ❤ Fall Music Playlist

It’s that time of year where all you want to do is go on nature walks, watch the leaves change colour and cozy up to a warm cup of pumpkin spice latte.

Yes, ladies and gentleman, it is indeed the Fall season.

This is a change of season like no other, and it is indeed, my most favourite time of the year.

A time for cool, crisp weather, the crunchy sounds and feelings of leaves between your hands and feet. Days like these call for a jog through the park or nature walks with your family, dogs, or friends.

Personally, along with the change of colours and weather, comes a change in musical tastes; a autumn playlist if you will.
