(NEW POST) ROADTRIP ENGLAND. PART 2. Coventry. A very good Butcher& a famous Castle

After spending a very fun time in Birmingham we grabbed our bags on Wednesday and headed to the City of Coventry. Me and the boy don’t have a routine when we discover a new city we just parked the car and strolled around, well after we had some very tasty breakfast at The Flying Standard. ๐Ÿ™‚

I was amazed that there are so many timber-framed houses in the city. Looks very pretty and reminds me very much about a few German cities in which this old buildings are common as well.

One thing that was indeed a must as I worked out the route for our UK road trip was to visit @taylorsbutchers . If you are on Twitter please check him out. He is fun and friendly but what is more important he will make you drool over his pies, sausage rolls and all the goods he and his family produces since 1937ย  in theirย butcher’s shop located in Earlsdon, Coventry. So after we pretty much seen it all in the city center we head over to Earlsdon to “Taylors Butchers. We popped in and of course I hoped to see Stuart but unfortunately he was on his day off so we get to meet Stuarts dad, which is a very nice chap. Pretty much enjoyed having a small chat. I bet he was also quite impressed of the power of twitter. Thanks to twitter two Germans found their way into the Taylors Butcher. We bought a few small pies and also some family sized ones to take with us to @RaeMck @baxterglen to have for Dinner. As you must have guessed it Rachael and Glen are fans ofย  Taylors as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

ย 

We stored our goods carefully and continued our way to Bicester. Half way on the motorway we saw a huge castle on the left hand side and our spirit of discovery was roused. So we took the exit and found ourselves 20 minutes later in Britain’s Ultimate:ย  WARWICK CASTLE.

How I love to discover things without making plans in the first place!! We had an epic time at the castle. The weather was glorious and this castle is indeed amazing. Wouldnt be surprised to meet Merlin or King Arthur on the grounds. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sooo dont wanted to leave this cool place!

We met up with Rachael and Glen at around six at their place. Such a lovely evening we had. Munching Stuarts pies accompanied by a huge salad and some beverages! ๐Ÿ™‚ Fun talks and stories and the time was passing by so fast.

We had a coma- like rest in Rachael’s and Glen’s guest room and Rachael made us a yummy breakfast before we left the house. Glen was already at work and Rachael was about to head to her workplace . Thank you so much for having us over night!! We are looking so much forward to see you again soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Me and Kai on the other had were ready for our next stop: OXFORD! ๐Ÿ™‚

All about that in my next post! ๐Ÿ™‚

Lots of Love*Linn

(NEW POST) ROADTRIP ENGLAND. PART 1. “Birmingham. A famous Bull and an epic Curry!”

Monday October 1stย  was the day I was BACK IN LONDON! ๐Ÿ™‚ This time me and the Mister headed over via Ryan Air so we arrived very late at night. (From Bremen it is either very early in the morning or late in the night!)

After a good night rest at Travellodge Stanstead we were ready to start our first Roadtrip England!ย  Not only did we visit different Towns and Cities in the United Kingdom during the 5 days but we had the pleasure of meeting up with some lovely people from Twitter as well. Some we have already met back in May and some we met for the very first time.

First stop on our route was after 2,5h car ride the City ofย  Birmingham. aka Brum

We met up with the lovely Helen for the first time at her place. After we had some Tea and a bit of chit-chat we took our rented car and drove to the city center for some proper sightseeing ! Oh but before that we had the pleasure of driving through the famous “Spaghetti Junction”, which was really impressive. Take a look!

The weather was semi okay. Lots of rain but we had a lot of fun with our local Brum- Girl Helen aka @pinkgoddess strolling around Birmingham. We were really lucky as it was Helen’s day off so plenty of time to get to know each other beside typing all day long on Twitter! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Birmingham was after London and Manchester the third City I have visited in England. Really liked the mixture between the old and new buildings but more than that I love the accent!!!! Really like the sound and melody! ๐Ÿ™‚

Quite some time and a hearty lunch later we were back in the north of Brum.ย  Helen’s Mister Rhys aka @mauvedeity was about to come home from work so we dropped Helen of at home before we met up again. Me and the Mister checked into Travellodge, which was literally 3 minutes from their home! ๐Ÿ˜€

Half an hour later we four had the arms full of drinkies and walked up to the Curry Place “Balti Garden”. where we wanted to have Dinner. It was such a joyful time. Lots of yummy good food. Great laughter and stories to tell.ย  We continued the drinkies and the fun stories at the Wilkin’s Mannor! Nom nom. Always a pleasure to have PIMM’S with you Helen!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you so much Helen& Rhys for the brilliant time! We had so much fun with you and we cannot wait to see you again. Either in Hamburg or in Brum! ๐Ÿ™‚

Lots of Love*Linn

Stay tuned for ROADTRIP PART 2! ๐Ÿ™‚
