On the 21st May to the 22nd, Solly and I stayed in Bournemouth for the night in The Ocean View Hotel – http://theoceanview.co.uk. I would recommend this hotel if you were staying for one or two nights, not for a long period of time. The venue was quite hard to find and was on a street with many other hotels. Breakfast at The Ocean View Hotel takes place in the hotel next door, which for some people is a bit of a pain. The room was nice, with a big bed, television and tea and coffee. Solly would not stop moaning about the television as it was quite small when we lay on the bed. This hotel is mainly a wedding venue so they concentrate more on the party than their other guests. Overall, we had a good nights stay there. In the 6th photo from the top, you can see a photo of the bed and the wallpaper.
Sol and I got there at about 3:00PM on the 21st of May as we had a lot of trouble getting down there, due to Solly’s car constantly breaking every time we had to go up a hill and my bad navigation. When we FINALLY got there we went and did a bit of shopping in the town centre and got some lunch. I love the speed of the city and all the noises but I don’t think Solly seemed to enjoy the big brass band playing the same song over and over again whilst we were sitting eating lunch. In the evening we went for a meal at an Italian just down the road from our hotel, and then went back to the hotel and watch TV.
The next day we spent pretty much our whole day in the arcade, waisting away all of our money and winning nothing back. We also went to Oceanarium aquarium which again I really enjoyed. We spent the rest of the day eating and in the arcade. We also tried the ‘best fish and chips in the world’ but I can defiantly say Somerset fish and chips are a lot nicer.
Funny enough, on our way home the sun came out when it had been raining most of the weekend. If anybody has any questions about our activities feel free to ask me!
As you will notice, I will be going back in time a little on my blog as I have lots of stuff to catch you up on. First of all, Love Saves The Day. I went to a festival at the end of May for the day and it was one of our best days ever. I went will Holly, Kelsey and George, although he left early, and we also knew a lot of people there, such as Solly (my boyfriend) and a lot of his friends. We watched Stormzy, Dizzee Rascal, Chase and Statuss DJ set and a lot more.
If anyone has ever heard of this day festival I defiantly recommend attending next year, even if it is just for the day. It is only a 2 day festival, you do not stay over night on the site, but the event takes place in Bristol. So people either find a lift home or get a hotel over night. People who attend both nights often get a hotel. There is also a motion after party that takes place when the festival ends at around 11:30. There is a main stage and other little dance tents that we spent most of our day in. It was also nice to go somewhere different with a different group of people.
