Sunday 17th April marked mine and Karl's 7 year anniversary. Yup, we've been putting up with each other for seven whole years - it's a hell of a long time! To mark the occasion, Karl surprised me with a night away glamping in Whitby and it was safe to say I was over the moon. I do love the outdoors and adventure but the thought of sleeping in the middle of a forest in a tent doesn't appeal to me much (too many spiders fo sho!) so staying in wooden hut or a "wig wam" as they're called sounded amazing. On Monday morning we got up early, got some food for the night away and took Luna with us to Grouse Hill Campsite and let me tell you we had such a great time away.
The wig wams are super cool and are actually a lot bigger inside than I thought they would be, with plugs, a kettle, lights, a fridge and a microwave. We had plenty of room to move around inside and the view of the forest from our decking was beautiful. We took Luna on a lovely long walk, settled down with some homemade afternoon tea when we got back to our hut (which didn't go quite to plan if you watch my vlog!) and had a lovely chilled evening in the middle of the countryside.
The next morning, we got up bright and early and headed into Whitby. Neither of us had ever been to Whitby before but it's such a beautiful place, with little traditional houses, the fresh smell of sea salt, the crisp sea breeze. It's exactly how you'd imagine a seaside town to be. We wandered along the beach with Luna, ate fish and chips (of course!), found some instagrammable beach huts (of course!) and we were well and truly worn out by the time we got home!
I think sometimes we spend so much time travelling to other countries we forget the beauty that's right on our doorstep. It's easy to overlook the cute little towns, beautiful beaches and amazing woodlands we have right here in England!
Have a little watch of my first ever vlog below too! I promise you it's got some laughs in, including a bit of a disaster with our afternoon tea and I might even trick Karl into thinking there's a snake in the grass on our walk!
