Stephanie Fox: Newcastle and Travel
I’ve always taken photos, especially of Newcastle and travel destinations, and with so many photo collections I needed a place to put them which is why I originally created this blog. I love my city, Newcastle Upon Tyne, and love to show it off, so you’ll find a lot of coffee shops, cocktail bars and restaurants around Newcastle, as well as the beautiful streets and bridges that make up this fabulous place, all from the point of view of a 30 year old enjoying life in the Toon.
When it comes to travel I have my parents to thank for taking me to some amazing places for some very memorable family holidays. Nowadays I try to go to as many places as possible, mixing up long haul trips with European breaks and UK weekend getaways. I’m a big planner, and love researching anywhere I plan to go.
Having said that, I’m never going to be the stereotypical ‘traveller’, with a backpack, staying in hostels, and going to 50 places in 5 days type of thing. No thanks. I prefer a planned out trip, a nice hotel, researching the best restaurants and bars, and actually experiencing a place properly. I’d love to say I try to travel for as cheap as possible, but I’m a lot more likely to choose convenience over cost, throw a bit of luxury into every trip, and try to get as much authenticity out of it as possible – as well as the usual tourist stuff!
