Hi everyone! Something a lil different from my usual art related blog posts, I’ve just returned from a weekend away to Liverpool with my dad and gran. I abseiled 150ft free hang down the West door of Liverpool Anglican Cathedral to raise money for the Children’s Air Ambulance – and I’ve been sponsored way over £500 and counting,which I think is a massive achievement, go me,hehe..Please enjoy my trip photos and descriptions of travels:
We stayed at the Hampton by Hilton Hotel near Albert Dock. To be honest, we weren’t particularly impressed with the hotel. There was hardly any storage space for clothes and hardly any complimentary tea and coffee. Also their oven had broke, so there was limited choice for food. The best thing about the hotel was the location, I wouldn’t recommend or go there myself again.
We spent the Saturday morning casually wandering around Albert Dock taking pretty photos and admiring the scenery.
I convinced my dad and gran to come Tate Liverpool with me, it was free admission except for an exhibition at the top. They said they found it boring, haha! I must be the cultured one enjoying art galleries lol 🎨
I did a tandem skydive from 10,000ft in Bridlington on my 21st birthday to raise money for mitochondrial disease (I was caring for a man with the awful disease in York when I lived there many moons ago) This was scarier! It was the leap of faith of leaning backwards at the top which was the worst. I was a quivering wreck, trembling at the top, pleading please don’t let me fall, ha! It was that initial sensation, I almost backed out. Going down I had a firm grip of the rope. I was as slow as a sloth, it took me 7 mins to descend, but I’m so proud of myself for completing the challenge. It was on my 30 things to do in my 30s bucket list, woop woop. I won’t be doing it again any time soon though!
We celebrated in the evening by having a fancy meal at Panum restaurant. I had a gorgeous vegan burger (I’m a vegetarian) and mocktails, yum yum 😋😋
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my latest travel post. I hope you like it 😁
You still have time to sponsor me: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/lauren-parr1?utm_source=facebook
