As is often the case with my bucket list, I watch something on TV, think “that looks amazing”, do a bit of research and then, ta dah, it’s on my list! Last night on BBC2 was Amazing Hotels: Beyond the Lobby with Monica Galetti and Giles Coren, and they were exploring a stunning castle on the western coast of the Republic of Ireland……..and suddenly I thought “I haven’t slept in a castle!
So, later this year, my hubby and I will celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary and I’ve booked a suite at Hever Castle which is in Edenbridge, Kent. I went there a few years ago when the children were younger just for the afternoon and it’s a super place to hang out. But it turns out that you can sleep there too. Also, you get access to the gardens after the public have gone so a great opportunity to take some special photos. You can’t get more romantic than that!
3 days until I venture down to Somerset and write my 100th TripAdvisor review from the stunning city of Wells……oh and blog!
But tomorrow, I’m going to do my first Throwback Thursday when I’m going to tell you in more detail about the ’40 things I did before I turned 40′. Many of these are listed at the very bottom of my current bucketlist: current bucket list
I’m always keen to hear if other people have ideas for my list so feel free to get in touch if you or your friends have any thoughts! xx
