Travel Timehop #12 – Bristol 2009

I love having holidays planned out months in advance – it’s something to look forward to, especially during the colder months.

However, not all of our breaks are that well planned. This Travel Timehop destination was chosen at the last minute and by pure chance, but ended up being a firm favourite with myself and Mr Tin Box.


When are we time-hopping to?

This Travel Timehop moment is from August 2009 – exactly a year after Mr Tin Box and I got married.

Where in the world?

We had no idea where to celebrate our first wedding anniversary but wanted to go somewhere in the UK that was new to us. So out came the map and Bristol caught our collective eyes.

By shear luck we managed to arrive in Bristol during its annual Harbour Festival – a long weekend of free music, dance and performance events across the city.

This photo was taken late in the afternoon on our first day after a few hours of watching live bands and drinking cider in Queen Square and at the Cascade Steps. The weather was gorgeous and Mr TB couldn’t resist having a paddle in the fountains on St Augustine’s Parade on the way back to our hotel.

We had a fantastic few days in Bristol enjoying the festival, eating out at some of the fab city centre restaurants and reflecting on our first year as a married couple. We loved it so much that we made a point of revisiting Bristol and the Harbour Festival for our second anniversary!
