My dream UK adventure #ULDadventure

My dream UK adventure #ULDadventure

‘What would you do if you had £500 to spend on a UK adventure?’

This is the question put to all of us by UNIQLO for their latest #ULDadventure competition. (More about the competition at the end of this post)

I’m a big fan of a good old staycation and I really believe we have so many amazing places to discover in the UK.

If I had £500 to spend on a UK adventure I’d want to discover more of the quirky glamping available. I’d take a road trip and pack up the car with my boyfriend, the pooch and plenty of warm clothes and set off on an adventure! I’d want to get lost in the countryside, climb mountains and discover quaint little villages with thatched roofs and cafes serving afternoon tea. I wouldn’t want a map, I’d just want to drive and get lost and see what we discover.

Cool places to stay in the UK

I’d stay in a vintage airstream trailer or a gypsy caravan. I’d opt for another treehouse or stay in a woodcutter’s cottage to enjoy the simple life. I’d even love to stay in something like this horsebox in Surrey! It looks so cozy inside and who else can say they’ve stayed in a luxury horsebox!?

I’d love to stay in a couple of places that are quirky and unusual and as close to nature as possible during my adventure. Who knows, when little baby comes along maybe this will be the perfect adventure for his first trip.

Of course, on my UK adventure I’d have to pack enough winter woolies, wellies and a warm coat for our unpredictable weather. UNIQLO have sent me this quilted jacket from their Ultra Light Down range to keep me warm this winter (and probably all spring and summer too). What do you think?

I’m a little bit in love with it because it’s so thin but so warm. It also folds up really small so it’s great for travelling – especially in spring an autumn in the UK when you have no idea what the weather is going to do!

OMG how cute are you and Louis frolicking in the Autumn leaves?! Great comp!

Haha, I was frolicking but Lou was just getting mad at me for stopping all the time. He's not much of an outdoor dog, no matter how many times a day I drag him through the woods! He sat down like this every time I stopped to take a photo.
