Sarah Visits | Lake District & South Lakes Zoo

Last week I went on a girls night away with my bestie and it was just what I needed. I had been so stressed out with work and it came just at the right time. Sometimes some quality time with your mates is the best medicine right?!

Back in January for my Birthday, my friend Adele had bought me a Giraffe feeding experience and a Red Panda experience at South Lakes Safari Zoo in the Lake District and we had booked to do it last week so we decided to make the most of it and have a girls night there as well. We stayed in a gorgeous boutique hotel called Aphrodites Lodge which was a small cute hotel in Bowness-on-Windemere, just a short walk from Windemere Marina, and the ferry terminal on Lake Windemere. Our room we stayed in was called the Orchid Suite and was really big with a huge circular bed, a double bath and private hot tub just outside, which was under shelter in case it rained. A perfect touch as let's be honest it normally does in England! It's a spa hotel and has a big lovely pool and a pretty little bar (only open until 10:30pm though!), but we didn't really use any of the amenities in the hotel as we were only there for one night and were leaving early the next day.
The only thing I will fault about the hotel is that there wasn't a restaurant. They had bar snacks you could order as room service but this was more like nacho's, bread and oil, etc.. and nothing really for an evening meal. There are restaurants dotted around the local area but most restaurants/takeaways were a 20 minute walk from the hotel. Not ideal when we had already cracked open the gin and couldn't drive. We ended up ordering a pizza to the hotel and spending the night drinking in the hot tub and watching films. If that's not a good girls night then I don't know what is! Let's not talk about Adele screaming in the middle of the night that there was a girl floating above us though shall we... hahahaha! Actually nearly shit my pants! I think a mixture of lots of gin and an extremely warm room was to blame for that one though!

Before we spent hours turning into prunes in the hot tub, we went for a wander down to Lake Windemere and Windemere Marina and I have got to say, some of those boats docked in the Marina were impressive!! We spent about half an hour wandering around them all picking which one we will buy when we win the lottery! Because I swear it will happen one day. One day those "we have news about your ticket" emails will be telling me I have won more a couple million more than the usual £4.50 I am sure of it!

The Lake District is so beautiful. Look at those views!! When you live in a big city like Liverpool, sometimes a trip to somewhere so different like the Lakes and breathing in the fresh air is just so relaxing and chills you out so much. I love just getting away for a day or two to places like this, it honestly makes you feel a million miles away from the stress of the office! I really want to see more of the Lake District when the weathers a bit nicer as this was only the second time I had been. I really want to visit places like this more and be in the great outdoors a little more. As Belle once sang, "I want adventure in the great wide somewhere!"

The next day it was the day I had been excited for since my Birthday when I got the present and time to do something I had always wanted to do. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love animals and absolutely adore Giraffes and I had wanted to do Giraffe feeding experience with them for SO long. And today was the day I was finally going to live out that dream! I was so so excited I can't even begin to explain!

We had our experience with a lad called Simon who was so friendly, chatty and told us so much about the Giraffes. He told us all about the food they ate, about the actual Giraffes that lived there, some facts about Giraffes and how they do amazing work alongside other zoo's around the world to try and help prevent extinction. There was only me Adele and two others doing the experience that day so it felt so much more personal and made the experience so much better as we got so much more time each feeding them.
The feeding was amazing, I felt so overwhelmed and like my heart could have burst! They are such beautiful animals and were so gentle when they were taking the food, they let us stroke them and when we were talking, they kept popping their heads down to our group as if they wanted to be part of whatever we were talking about! We fed them carrots and in total we spent about 45 minutes with them. It was such an amazing experience and something I would highly recommend. I have loved Giraffes all my life and to finally get so up close and personal with them really was a dream come true!

As it was a weekday in March, the zoo was quite empty that day which meant we could go ages without seeing anyone and it was so much nicer than the usual crowds you have to fight through during Summer or weekends. As there wasn't many visitors, straight after our Giraffe experience, Simon asked us if we wanted to go and see the Rhinos. Obviously we weren't going to say no! He took us over and he spent around 15 mins with us talking about the Rhinos and he even let us stroke them! AS IF I have stroked an actual Rhino! They felt so strange, the body feels just like you would expect, hard and coarse, but their faces are so squashy and soft. It was such an amazing little extra we were so lucky to get!

The penguins are free to roam around their enclosure and the public are able to walk through and be so close to them which I have never seen in a zoo before. They do feeding experiences throughout the day for £3 but they only take cash and we only had our bank cards so unfortunately we didn't get to feed them. We did get to walk through and hang out with them for a little bit though and some of them even let me stroke them! Adele wasn't so lucky though and one did try and bite her finger off haha! They are such funny little characters waddling along! 

Our Red Panda feeding didn't go to plan but every cloud has a silver lining! We went over and they were in their mating season so they were more interested in each other than us and would't come out the tree they were in. The female Red Panda, Tinkerbell was asleep and the male Red Panda, Pan (how amazing are those names!), was too busy being a horny devil and trying to get his wicked way with her and unfortunately for us, at that time the food just wasn't as interesting as having some Panda fun with Tinkerbell! We decided to give it half an hour and try again as the other two people on our experience had a Sloth feeding experience booked too. We hadn't seen the sloth yet so we went over with them to see him while they were feeding him. We just sat to the side while they did their experience and half way through they asked us if we wanted a go of feeding him! We said no at first as they had paid for this experience and we didn't want to use some of their time when they had spent their money on it, but they insisted so we also got to have the amazing experience of feeding Stanley the Sloth as well! He was absolutely adorable and loved his grapes we fed him. I couldn't believe the kindness of the couple offering some of their experience to us. We were so grateful!

The second try of the feeding experience with Pan and Tinkerbell still didn't go to plan, however we did get to feed Pan even if he was still refusing to come out of his tree. We fed him their favourite food Bamboo and just seeing his little face looking down at me while he was chomping on his leaves was enough for me.

Thinking back I honestly can't believe how lucky we were to get so many little extras throughout the day. I highly recommend South Lakes Safari Zoo for a fun day out, it's not as big as other zoo's I've been to but the fact you can get so close to the animals was just the best experience! We had the best day there and I am so happy I had one of my dreams come true finally and fed my all time faves! Plus ticking things off my bucket list I didn't even know were on there!

Sarah Travels | Budapest

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away"

I was sitting on the top of an open top bus, next to my favourite person in the world, the sun shining down on us while the stunning Hungarian city flew past us, the Danube sparkling bright next to us in the sunshine, and seeing Craig sitting next to me beaming with happiness. It was then that I knew Budapest had stolen my heart. (Sorry Paris, I still love you!! This must be what cheating feels like haha!).

Those times in your life where you just feel so happy you could burst, Budapest was one of those times for me.

I'm currently having a lazy Sunday while the rain's pouring down outside so I thought today is the perfect day for a throwback to sunnier times strolling around a glorious city. Let's throw it back to Budapest, mine and Craig's first trip abroad together back in May 2018.

Budapest is somewhere I've wanted to go for a long time. I've never known too much about the place or country as a whole, and it's not the most common of city breaks, but something about it has always intrigued me and I have just felt drawn there and was desperate to go. Once I got there, it became so clear that I had made the right choice in wanting to go there. It's got such a magical feeling to it. It was also mine and Craig's first holiday abroad together, so it was always going to be special no matter where we were, but there was just something about that city. I felt so content, so comfortable and I can see why George Ezra wrote a song about the place.
Castle Hill Furnicular
Fisherman's Bastion & amazing views from the Bastion over the Danube

Fisherman's Bastion
Budapest is split into two sides, Buda and Pest which are separated by the Danube. Buda was definitely my favourite of the two, being home to the absolutely breathtaking Castle District. The Castle District is where you will find Buda Castle (which now houses Budapest History Museum and the Hungarian National Gallery) and Fisherman's Bastion. It was amazing and was completely different to anywhere I'd ever been or anything I'd seen in any other city break I had been on. 
We got the funicular up the hill which took about 5 minutes. I was expecting it to be a little bit longer to be honest but it was so cute! I swear down though, I have never seen Craig so excited. Even now to this day I haven't seen him as excited as he was getting on that funicular haha, whereas I hadn't even heard of a funicular before we went I'm not going to lie! 

The views of across Budapest from the Castle District, and in particular the Fisherman's Basiton are just unreal! 4 of my favourite things in the world, sunsets, rainbows, the sound of the ocean, and a good view!! You can see for miles right across the city and the Parliament building standing tall on the Pest riverside.
The Fisherman's Bastion is a must see while you are in Budapest. It reminded me of Hogwarts (massive Harry Potter fan over here, so more brownie points there!), and although it was extremely crowded it's definitely something I'd highly recommend going to have a look at. I just wanted to don a cloak and a wand and run around shouting Expelliarmus!
While we were there, there was a little market taking place in the Castle District where we tried some "chips on a stick" (not a fan), wandered around the cute little market stands, saw some traditional Hungarian dancers, and had the best pasta I have ever had in a restaurant called Arany Hordo Vendeglo just round the corner from the Fishermans Bastion. Budapest is really big on Paprika and we had the most gorgeous spaghetti with chicken and mushrooms in a creamy paprika sauce, ABSOLUTE HEAVEN! We also saw the changing of the guards in the Buda Castle take place and had the most gorgeous Gelato. It was perfect.

Budapest Eye & the most stunning sunset from the top of the Eye
Most amazing Pasta in the world at Arany Hordo Vendeglo & the best Pizza's ever at I Quattro Artisti

After we had left the Castle District we travelled back over to the Pest side of the River and went and climbed the millions of steps to the top of St Stephen's Basilica which was an absolute killer, I thought I was gonna have serious quads of steel on the go after climbing those stairs! It was well worth it though when you get to the top and are greeted with some incredible views! Again with the view I know but honestly, see it for yourself and you will understand! 
We ended the day with the nicest Pizza in the world at I Quattro Artisti, Budapest really know how to do good food! We also had some delicious wine, and then had a little ride on the Budapest Eye while the sun was setting. As far as first days on holiday go, it was pretty unbeatable!

The next day we visited the Szechenyi Thermal Baths which is an extravagant thermal outdoor baths and it was amazing. I know the name is thermal bath, but I did not expect the water to be as warm as it was. It was a toasty 26 degrees and I could have spent all day in there if we weren't on a strict timescale.  You can hire a cubicle which you can get changed in and then lock after you to store all your clothes and valuables in and you can hire towels as well which are extremely clean so if you have plans after like we did you don't have to worry about carrying around wet towels with you all day. The place itself is just stunning and although it was extremely busy, it was so relaxing. The only thing I wasn't impressed with was the amount of men who were rocking speedo's but nothing can be perfect I guess haha. It's definitely the number 1 thing I would recommend doing in Budapest along with visiting the Castle District and Fisherman's Bastion.

That day we also visited Margaret Island, a 1 and a half mile Island situated in the middle of the Danube which is covered in Parks and it just absolutely beautiful. We were meant to hire bikes and ride around but we ended up on a little golf style buggy and rode that around the Island which was SO fun! Only problem was, short arse Sarah over here couldn't reach the pedals on it so poor Craig ended up doing all the pedalling while I just steered and videoed us haha!  Again I wish we had longer to spend on there, we didn't plan our time as good on the second day and everything ended up being a bit rushed, but we still got a good hour there. 

We ended this day with a sunset cruise down the Danube which was just absolutely unbelievable and something I would highly recommend doing. We bought hop on hop off bus tickets and got the cruise included in the price for those but they also do more pricey options on more grand boats with meals and music which sounded amazing!

Parliament Building

On our last day before we went home, we managed to fit in a little trip to the Shoes on the Danube memorial on the Pest side of the River which was really beautiful but also extremely sad.  The Shoes on the Danube memorial was made to remember the thousands of people murdered by being made to remove their shoes and then line up on the River Bank before being shot dead into the River by the Arrow Cross Party during the War. It was extremely moving and such a beautiful way to remember all the innocent people killed in such an awful way. 

Shoes On the Danube Memorial

Budapest is such an amazing City, with absolutely loads to do. We had so much we wanted to see and do which we never got the chance to while we were there. We really want to go and see the Parliament building properly because we only saw it from afar, and we really want to go to Budapest Zoo, go and see Heroes Square and see Liberty Statue. But we also want to spend more time in the Thermal Baths and on Margaret Island. We will definitely be back at some point, hopefully sooner rather than later, to experience what other delights my new favourite city has to offer.

If you haven't been to Budapest before I would definitely add it to your bucket list of places to visit. You won't regret it! 

Once a year, go somewhere you've never been before

Sarah's City | City of Light, City of Sanctuary

Last week and through into the weekend, a floating city of light shone bright in a Liverpool park.

An amazing Liverpool based art company called the Lantern Company brought their magical art display to Sefton Park and of course, I had to go down and see it. I have been to a Halloween carnival created by the Lantern Company before and I knew how amazing their creations were and when I saw this advertised I knew I couldn't miss it! I mean, it's a floating city of lanterns! If it doesn't remind you of the lantern scene from Tangled, aka one of the best Disney scenes EVER than you have no soul!
I love how unique the Lantern Companies work is and how beautiful everything that they create is, and the fact that they are a home grown Scouse independent company just makes supporting them even better!

The event took place on Sefton Parks boating lake and was free to attend. Their was was another part to it which was the City of Sanctuary part in the Palm House which also looked brilliant, but that was ticketed and we didn't manage to get tickets unfortunately. Seeing this was enough for me though. Not every day you can say you saw something like this!

It was an absolutely beautiful art event and it blew me away how pretty and magical it was when the night time hit and the city of lanterns shone in all their glory. I love how much diversity there is in Liverpool and always something unique and exciting going on that really manages to bring the city together. If you can't tell, I am a very proud scouser ;) There was so many people there, it was absolutely rammed and over the 5 nights this event was on for, every night was the same. Liverpool just completely fell in love with the shining city on the boating lake and I certainly hope it's not the last time we see it, or something similar comes along soon. 

I just had to end this post with a shot of the gorgeous fire sky above the floating city at dusk while we were waiting for it to go dark. I just love me a good sunset!

Another amazing event Liverpool, well done! Cannot wait for the next one! Keep them coming!

Sarah Travels | The Amazon Rainforest

I have actually been into the Amazon Rainforest. I've been to the AMAZON RAINFOREST! Sorry just nearly 6 months later, it still hasn't quite sunk in.

This is going to be another long one, so get yourselves a cuppa, or maybe a glass of wine? A Pisco Sour to get in the Peruvian mood? ;) Whatever floats your boat, I do have a tendency to ramble haha.

Let's get the journey rant out the way, then the good stuff can start! The journey there was a stressful one to say the least. I'm not the greatest flier anyway, and landing in Cusco before the Inca Trail began was horrific and so bumpy because of the altitude so I was already a bit worried about having to take off from there. The day before we flew some of the "Assholes" had flown back to Lima to go home (see previous post if you're sitting there wondering why the hell I'm referring to assholes in a post haha). Anyway they had text our group whatsapp chat saying that they had to fly back to Lima without their luggage and they didn't think they were going to get it to them in time for their flights home the next day because the heat and air pressure from the altitude meant the plane had been too heavy to take off and they had to take loads of the luggage off the plane for it to be able to fly. Cue me and my anxious little brain starting to panic and worry.
The day of the flight, straight away the journey was a nightmare haha. We all got on the mini bus and just before we were going to leave I realised I didn't have my phone. I was back in the hotel frantically searching all over the reception, asking for the key to go back to my room to check it, begging the mini bus driver to open my suitcase so I could check inside. He wouldn't at first because he had struggled to get it into the bus (yes I am the person that took a 25kg suitcase on a backpacking and jungle holiday while everyone else had small sports bags hahahaha, "travelling light" doesn't exist in my vocabulary)  but I think he saw how upset I was and finally got it back out for me and when I opened it, there it was. It was like a light shone down, a choir sang and I had just set eyes on the holy grail! I actually dived onto my bus driver and hugged him, which he definitely wasn't impressed by hahaha! Finally after the phone fiasco, we could set off the airport. It is always me that these things happen to!!!

Once we got the airport all was going well until we actually boarded the plane then we had the same problem as the others. Our guide had left us, so we were travelling alone without a G-Adventures rep accompanying us, and then all of a sudden our suitcases started being taken back off the plane and back into the airport. Then the panic set in, I didn't want to fly to a remote part of the jungle without my suitcase! The stewards on the plane were an absolute joke. We were trying to ask where they were taking them, if they would fly on a different plane straight after us, if they didn't where would they go, when would we get them? Fair enough they didn't know anything, but they could see we were all panicking and they wouldn't even attempt to try and find out anything for us. There was even another group on the plane who were travelling with G-Adventures as well, and we were desperately trying to get their rep to help us, but she wouldn't even speak to us because we weren't the group she was assigned to and then went on to pretend to be asleep until we got to the jungle! None of us were impressed and then to add to the panic, after pretty much all the luggage had been removed from the plane, we were then told that the plane was still too heavy and 10 people had to get off and they would be compensated £50. If no-one volunteered, they would pick people at random. Thankfully some people did and the plane could still leave, and off we went, waving our luggage goodbye.

When we landed and got off the plane, there was still no G-Adventures rep there to pick us up, and again the other rep was absolutely no help and just left with her group while we were stood there like lemons with no luggage and absolutely no idea what was happening. Finally after what seemed like hours, two of the guides from our eco-lodge resort we were staying in turned up to get us, but completely unaware that we didn't have luggage. They were an absolute godsend though and finally got people in the airport to help us and got in touch with people who let us no that our suitcases would be arriving there and being sent to the G-Adventures office by the time we were travelling back home again. Most of our group had absolutely nothing with them, so the guides took us to some local shops so we could get some toiletries and clothes if we needed anything, which we were told we could claim back the expenses for once we were home. Luckily me and Stacey had packed most of our stuff we needed and clothes in our backpacks because we couldn't be bothered messing about in our suitcases once we got to the G-Adventures office, so we weren't too bad. Being lazy does pay off sometimes! About 2 hours later than expected, we were finally on our way to our lodge, and finally all our stresses seemed to start to disappear and everyone started to be excited again. Talk about the journey from hell!! Haha!
Once we were on the mini bus we got given our lunch and can I just say, it was the nicest lunch ever! Egg fried rice, served in a huge leaf! If that didn't make you feel like you were on your way to the middle of the Jungle then I don't know what would have! We were on the mini bus for about an hour until we got to the Amazon River, where we all boarded a speedboat to take us to our Eco-Lodge Resort and cruised down the river for 2 hours, while the sun was setting in front of us. Watching a sunset on a boat on the Amazon River in the middle of the Rainforest, how was that my life? I actually felt like I needed someone to pinch me and wake me up because it felt like I was dreaming. I have never seen anything so beautiful, and to make it even better, we even saw wild Capybaras on the river banks which were just absolutely adorable!
Our eco-lodge resort was amazing. It was called Cayman Lodge in the Tambopata National Reserve region of the Amazon and it was the prettiest place ever. There was a big dining space where all the groups staying there met for meals, there was a bar which served the nicest cocktails, there was an area with all hammocks in where you could lounge around and chill out, there was so many little huts everywhere, there was even an area where you could charge your phone or electronics. I know, electricity in the jungle! Who would have thought it?! We didn't have any signal at all, but at least we could charge them! Our lodges were like no where I'd ever stayed before. They were pretty little lodges made from wood, with grass roofs and little raised walkways leading to them which branched off all around the resort. They had mosquito nets around the beds, and no electricity or lights in the rooms so when the sun went down, the only light you could get was using a torch or candle light! Just so different from anywhere I had ever been before.  Not sure how much the mosquito nets worked though, the amount of bites I came home with was ridiculous, most of which I got in the jungle. They even bit me through my clothes! They tell you to take long sleeved tops and trousers but they still got their little sneaky selves through, and a few have scarred me on my arms and face. I am so so happy I took Malaria tablets because my repellent did nothing haha!
We stayed in the Cayman Lodge for 2 nights but only one full day as we arrived late on the first day and we were setting off early on the 3rd day. While we were there we did some amazing activities. I wasn't sure what to expect from this part of the holiday, in regards to where we would be staying, what the Amazon Rainforest itself would be like, or what we would be doing here, but it was all just so amazing!
We missed one of our activites because we were delayed getting there but the 1st night we did a night walk through the Jungle with one of our guides and we got to see a snake and some creepy crawlies and then at the end before we turned back, we saw a spider that I'm not even exaggerating, was the actual size of a dinner plate! Just as we started to look at it, it scurried away because of the light off the torches and hid under a log, so our guide told us all to turn our torches off and see if it would come back out. I was so scared stood there not even being able to see my hand in front of my face just incase we put our torches back on and the spider was on my foot hahaha! It stayed hidden tho thankfully and didn't use my foot as a pillow, so we left it alone in peace.
On the second day we did a jungle hike through the Tambopata National Reserve which was amazing but SO hot! The humidity was like nothing I had ever experienced (cue Monica Gellar hair and me having to wear my hair in a bun the whole time to keep it at bay!) and hiking through a jungle in crazy humidity was an experience I'll never forget, but I loved it. I felt like GI Jane or Lara Croft! It was a 10K hike, 5K there and 5K back and then halfway through we got to cruise around in another little boat around this huge lake in the middle of the reserve. This boat was tiny and the whole time I felt like it was going to topple and I would be a Caimans lunch, but my god it was worth it! While we were on the boat we saw wild monkeys swinging in the trees, a massive Anaconda curled up on the river bank, a little group of bats sleeping upside down, and so many different birds and butterflies. It was unreal! When we got off the boat and sat around for lunch, the rest of group brought in this huge anaconda skin which one had shed that they had fished out of the water. It was crazy! After the boat ride we hiked back and spent the afternoon chilling in hammocks, reading, chatting and drinking cocktails! It was hard to think that a few days before I had been hiking through the Andes Mountains and now here I was, swaying in a hammock with a cocktail in the middle of the jungle surrounded by animals and hundreds of species of birds and not a care in the world! It was nice to get an hour or two to ourselves and just sit and think of how crazy the adventure had been so far, and how much we had seen and done while we were in Peru :) After our hour or two of chilled bliss, we all went to the little hut overlooking the river and watched another stunning sunset over the Rainforest and the River. Everything about this place was just perfect.
That same day and the last of our activities was definitely my favourite. We went on a night time boat ride Caiman spotting! We all got back on a speedboat after it had gone dark and we floated up and down the Amazon trying to find some wild Caimans. The river was so silent other than the sound of birds and monkeys in the trees. On the night spotting, the guides have huge torches and they shine them onto the river banks, and when they are shone onto a Caiman, their eyes glow red so you can spot them. I was so happy, I thought I spotted one from so far away when the guide shone the torch onto the river bank and then a minute later she shouted we've spotted one and it was the one I had seen! Just call me Sarah Attenborough haha! We ended up seeing quite a few for the hour we were out, all of them little baby ones and we saw them both in the water and on the banks. It was absolutely amazing, seeing these animals in their natural environments and in their own habitats rather than a man made one like the zoo's I'm so used to going to. It was one of my favourite things I have ever done. I am such a huge animal lover and love wildlife documentaries and Sir David Attenborough is one of my heroes so this couple of days was just something else for me.
Aside from the activities we did and the animals we saw, the food was so nice in the resort! One of our meals was noodles with chicken and veg followed by bananas in a passion fruit sauce which was delicious, and another was steak with rice and veg followed by some sponge cake. My appetite still wasn't back after the Inca Trail and I still didn't manage to eat much, but I did manage to eat more than I had done and actually got to enjoy some of the food this time which felt amazing. The staff in the resort were just absolutely brilliant, especially our two guides, and I literally couldn't fault Cayman Lodge at all. I loved sitting round in the evening having a few drinks with the Assholes and spending some time relaxing, having drinks and having toothpaste parties! Haha! Yes we all did our teeth in the same room, waving our torches around as if they were glowsticks, and dancing round to absolutely nothing! It was the best teeth cleaning experience I've ever had that's for sure! Going to sleep at night as well with the sound of all the wildlife outside was strangely soothing and I had such good sleeps there, probably the best sleeps I had the whole holiday!  I just wish we had been able to stay a little bit longer because I absolutely loved every second that I was there.

The Amazon Rainforest is such a special place, and will always hold special memories for me now. I feel so lucky to have experienced such a unique and amazing couple of days and been able to see animals in their true form deep in the middle of the Rainforest. The trip was expensive, I had struggles along the way, but everything that went wrong or every obstacle I had to face throughout the two weeks was worth it for the experiences I had. Oh and on the way back, we got our suitcases! *insert party popper emoji here*
Thanks for having me Amazon and thanks for the memories you gave me <3
