Exploring Glastonbury

Hello beauties, so today’s post is a bit of a chatty one so a big coffee is definitely needed. Follow me around posts are one of my favourite things to read and definitely my favourite to write and I am lucky that me and Tom get the opportunity to visit lots of cute towns and do a bit of exploring. This weekend was spent in Glastonbury and I freaking love it there, so of course, I got to share it with you guys.

Glastonbury is just under an hours drive away from mine and after a very lazy morning we set off on our journey. A couple parking meltdowns later, we finally made it and of course, food was the first thing on our agenda and we found the cutest and most Glastonbury cafe ever, The Lazy Gecko.  The walls were covered in an assortment of paintings, a hand-painted car bonnet, jewellery, and other little figurines. It was so freaking cool. I don’t want to offend anyone by labelling the locals as ‘hippies’, but it was so alternative (aka right up my street). Me and Tom have a tradition that wherever we go, our first bev has to be a Peroni, because it was the first drink we ordered when we started dating so it’s basically set in stone now haha! So we ordered two Peroni’s and two portions of cheesy chips and it was the best thing ever.

After lunch, we had a look around all of the independent shops and everyone is SO friendly its unbelievable and the customer service is so much better than some shops that I regularly go in. All of the shops have a bit of theme, incense sticks, crystals, handmade jewellery, and Wicca products, so definitely something you don’t often see in Bristol or Bath.

Once I have refrained from spending all of my money we went on a cute walk up the Tor, or should I say what I thought would be a cute walk. So I could paint this picture nicely and say how romantic and cute it was, but let us be honest, that’s something I never do on this blog. I am probably a little too real at times haha. For those who aren’t familiar Glastonbury Tor is a huge hill with St Michaels Tower on the top, and when I say hill, I mean a bloody big hill. I thought I was fit until I walked this haha, so Tom being Tom walks up it like it’s normal whilst I am on the verge of having an asthma attack, with my hair blowing everywhere and a runny nose. Why am I so uncool, I am sorry Tom, the honeymoon phase is a distant memory (sorry for catfishing you). But after three breaks we made it and it was so worth it, the views are beyond beautiful.

After a much-deserved coffee break, we made our way home. Glastonbury is such a gorgeous town and I recommend it to everyone. Now onto a super exciting part of the post- last week this little blog reached two milestones.

    I have never been to Glastonbury before and only know it because of the festival. I wonder if the hippie theme is because of the festival or the festival is there because of the theme? Either way, it looks beautiful and just be glad Tom did not drag you up a mountain because my Tom did!!! xx
