“Oh I do love to be beside the seaside, oh I do love to be beside the seaaaaaa!”. I find it amazing that no matter where you are within the UK, you are never more than 70 miles away from the sea. Growing up in Essex it was always such a treat to spend a Saturday afternoon either in Clacton or Southend, me and my Sister used to beg to go! Granted, they aren’t the nicest seaside towns in Britain, there are some really lovely ones around the country, but they still had all the things that make British seaside towns great, even though they may be a little tacky and outdated, I love them.
As a part time traveller and living in the UK, Easter is a great time to travel as it means extra ‘public holiday’ days off work! It almost means that I’ve been able to experience how other cultures celebrate Easter and Iceland tops it when it comes to their AMAZING Icelandic Easter Eggs. Iceland has its own chocolate factory ‘Noi Sirius’ located just outside of Reykjavik. Noi Sirius were established in the 1920s and are the masters behind these eggs!
