Good Evening All.
I hope you are all ok , sorry i haven’t blogged a lot during the last few days but i have been taking some time away from everyday life.
Living in the North West i feel so lucky to live by some amazing places to visit.
Growing up in the West Midlands we always had to travel along way to be by the seaside now i have it on my doorstep and i feel so lucky to be where i am in this present moment in my life.
So let me tell you about my two day break and how Covid 19 impacted it.
So a few weeks ago i decided that i was in need of a break away from home life , work and daily routines just so we could try and relax and recharge and actually spend some time together.
So I booked to go to the (Vegas of the North ) Blackpool ,Lancashire ( Fylde Coast)
Its not everyone’s cup of tea i couldn’t even get my dad there even if i bribed him but its something about its traditional seaside experience that draws millions of people to visit every year.
There is plenty to do in Blackpool but I’m going to be honest unless you need to pre plan and pre book tickets to attractions , otherwise you may need a small bank loan its always best to pre book for the best deals on tickets.
During my trip the weather wasn’t fantastic was windy but I’m not complaining its a break away.
Now lets get the Covid 19 experience out the way .
I have very mixed feelings as ive worked all through the pandemic like most key workers have , we have been used to a lot of changes on a daily basis.
Anyone who is still traveling during Covid will understand what I’m about to say.
The messages are mixed and what you need to understand is that as long as you do your bit and stick within the guidelines set by the venue and location you cant go wrong of course there is a risk in doing anything in life.
Wear a mask when stated , Sanitize Hands , use track and trace guidelines for each venue that’s how you can do you bit.
There will be queuing wherever you go within One or two meter rule depending on the company policies possible temperature checks to as long as you understand the procedure’s and do your part you can still enjoy your break.
But what you all need to know is that life must go on.
Lets get on with the fun part Blackpool Attractions.
The Golden Mile is the stretch of Promenade between the North and South pier full of attractions such as…
