Yayyy for WIAW this week! I love Wednesday’s just for this special foodie party.
This week I have some sights and food from my recent trip to Bath to share with you.
We were very lucky by the fact that we had this beautiful view of the River Avon from our hotel room. It was great seeing the sunrise over the river everyday during our stay. Alfie loved the view so much that on Monday he suggested that we went for a run along the river. After getting over the shock of Alfie actually wanting to go for a run we headed out one early morning for a short stint. We did 1.82 miles in 15 minutes with a pace of 8.25. Although it was only a short distance it was great to get out there amongst the gorgeous scenery. I also added some lunges, squats, push ups, tricep dips and an ab workout to the mix once we to back to the hotel room.
I had never even thought of visiting Bath before now, but it one amazing place steeped with history, quaint shops and houses and lots of greenery. All of the buildings are built out of a creamy coloured Bath stone with some gorgeous architecture. It was like walking through a Jane Austen novel.
Despite all of the sight seeing and walking I did manage to sneak in some outfit snapshots for you too:

And of course lots of tasty eats were consumed at some lovely restaurants:
In the end I settled for fried pumpkin ravioli with parmesan cheese and a tomato sauce for my starter and some salmon and caper fish cakes for my main…
On Monday whilst exploring the town we headed in to the M&S Kitchen looking for something to warm us up as it was a little chilly outside. The seasonal soup sounded perfect, especially because it was Halloween and the seasonal soup that day was made from butternut squash.
That evening we headed to a lovely hidden Moroccan restaurant. It was gorgeous inside with wooden carvings and lanterns. The menu was full of Eastern promise and I decided to order two starters of falafel that came with hummus and a tahini dip and also chargrilled vegetables with haloumi cheese.
Alfie got stuck right in with a lamb tagine with saffron rice:
On Tuesday, our final day in Bath I was completely spoilt. Alfie got me some gorgeous roses delivered to our hotel:
He also took me to The Bath Priory for a mega lunch. This meal was probably the best meal of my life. The food was simply stunning and so beautiful, so much so I will be writing a full post about it soon, but until then I will leave you with this…
…and they say romance is dead…obviously not!
🙂 Happy WIAW everyone 🙂
