3 ways to be a tourist in your hometown this Christmas
The holidays are finally here! And I don’t know about you but I haven’t been home since September and have missed my hometown, Brighton, a LOT. Nottingham’s fab and all but every time I go back, I remember how much I take Brighton for granted?! This Christmas, I have plans to explore a bit more. And I reckon, even if you know your hometown inside out, there are still new, little experiences to be had that would also shake up your normal routine.
- Cycle around
Cycling is obviously a great to get some fresh air but why not pick a trail you haven’t done before and go exploring?! I also like to stop by some scenic sights and take photos.
- Go out for coffee and cake in a new café
Because honestly who even does that anymore?! Find an independent café tucked away somewhere and treat yo self. Coursework and revision can be both hard … and boring but honestly cake solves a lot of problems. I’ve actually done this at least 3 times this term in Notts … it’s been a tough term haha
- Find new events
I tend to do the same things when socialising with friends. It’s normally the cinema, a bit of lunch and a bit of window shopping. But there’s actually so much going on if you just give it a quick Google Search! I found out about some comedy shows, live jazz and a couple of spoken word nights too. So I’m definitely going to be mixing it up a bit. The best thing about events like these is that a lot of people go alone and don’t know anyone so it’s wouldn’t be too awkward if you wanted to just turn up by yourself either!
