Birthday Trip to Bournemouth

I turned 20 last month, so to celebrate Chris and I decided to go down to Bournemouth for the weekend! We both love Bournemouth, and after going two years ago I was so ready to go back! We went from the Friday to the Sunday, and had a really relaxed fun time just exploring the town and being a bit touristy. Because, why not ;)

Here are a couple of snapshots of our weekend:

We couldn't go to Bournemouth without heading down to the beach front for a cocktail at one of my favourite bars- Hot Rocks. You can't beat an Electric Blue cocktail while sitting outside watching the ocean...

We were lucky enough to catch the end of the Bournemouth Food and Drink Festival, which finished that Sunday! Let's just say lunch was sorted for every single day! There was so much to choose from, and a couple of favourites were the chicken and chorizo paella (the best I've ever tasted, the combination of the chorizo and saffron were just incredible) and homemade Italian ice-cream (again, unlike anything I've ever tasted). Also, when a barman creates a strawberry flavoured cider for you, that's pretty something!

Alongside doing things like going up in the huge balloon in the Lower Gardens and exploring the pier, we also visited the Oceanarium. I'd never been before, but I'm a sucker for zoos and aquariums so couldn't resist!

I promise this was not staged, I genuinely got very excited about the sea horses!!
