When I think of Bristol, I, immediately have the image of one of the nicest and interesting cities in the UK. This city has such a positive vibe and so many things to offer that it’s impossible to don’t love it.
It was one of those days when I felt the need to get out of Exeter. As I was having a week off, I have decided to go to Cardiff and Bristol. My colleagues told me a lot about their experiences in Bristol so I have decided to give it a chance and visit it.
Packed everything, bought my coach ticket and the holiday started. Did the booking for the accommodation while I was on the road so I was ready for a new adventure.
When I finally arrived, the first impression was awful. The coach station was in the refurbishment process and the weather was absolute nightmare. Pouring. As there were no taxis available,I started to walk up to the hotel. And step by step, admiring the view and getting soaked (as I never have an umbrella with me) , I started to like the city. Even on bad weather was lovely. I stayed at Ibis city center hotel where the guys were fantastic. They gave me so much info about the city and what to do. I checked into my room and took a look at the map provided. I checked what is to see nearby and I went for a walk. The Aquarium(DEFINITELY A MUST SEE) and We The Curious were right next to the hotel. After a short walk ,I arrived at the harbor, where you can find restaurants and pubs. They have a really good variety in terms of food and drinks.
After getting lost on the streets of Bristol, I finally managed to find the city center with its shopping centers but as it was getting late and most of them were closing , went back to for a walk by the harbor to make an idea about what I can visit the next 3 days.
