Adventures in Bristol - Part 1

Architecture, Craft, TravelKate Marsden

Over half term, the little man and I spent a few days in Bristol. We did so much, and took so many photos that I've decided to split our trip into two posts - the second will follow in a couple of weeks' time.

So here's the first part...

I'd been to Bristol before but the little man hadn't so it was a bit of an adventure as far as he was concerned. We also took the train so needed something to keep us occupied. As he'd received an origami set for this birthday, I hit on the idea of making a heap of origami flowers on the train and then leaving them all over the place once we got there. Something nice and colourful to make people smile (and fewer things in my house so win win!).

We added a hashtag to them #happyorigamibristol but sadly none of the people who picked them up joined in with that. However when we wandered back around later they'd all gone so we were pleased!

We also took in the SS Great Britain which, while it wasn't a cheap attraction, was brilliant - and if you go back (the ticket is valid for 12 months) it's actually pretty good value. The little man got to do all sorts of things - shovelling coal, sweeping the decks - useful skills for putting him to work at home!!!

Keep your eyes peeled for my second Bristol post which will be full of street art, pretty doors and independent shops!
