Spreading the Love for Geordieland

August 1, 2015 in Days Out 7

Life has been good to me in Newcastle, I met my gorgeous fella here, I have a job I really enjoy, a lovely home and some treasured friends. Even when times have been tough I have always felt that being in Newcastle has made life’s challenges slightly easier to handle, without going in to too much detail, the hospitals in the north east are flipping marvellous!

So, I kind of feel like I owe a lot to this amazing city and whenever I am asked for my thoughts on why people should visit, I’m more than happy to shine a light on the wonderfulness of Geordieland!

I’ve been doing a lot of that recently as requests for travel articles have been flooding in, it seems more and more people are waking up to the fact that there’s a lot more to Newcastle than meets the eye!

For today’s blog post I thought I would share with you some of the articles I’ve written for various websites. These will hopefully come in rather handy if you’re planning a visit of your own. If you’re already lucky enough to call this part of the world home then take a look and let me know if you share any of my favourite places or if you think I’ve missed anywhere special.

The Travel Hack is one of my favourite travel blogs so when Monica asked me to put together a city guide for Newcastle I jumped at the chance!

It annoys me that many people still think it’s grim up north! Newcastle gets it’s fair share of sunshine and when it does there are some really nice places to make the most of it while enjoying a delicious lunch.

There’s no doubt about it, Geordie’s love a drink and there’s an abundance of proper pubs to choose from. I did A LOT of research in order to put this list together, it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!

Firstly, I want to say how much I like your blog name! Secondly, I have not been to Newcastle, although I had spent 2 years living in the UK. So any time I am back, I will be sure to go over your amazing articles once more!

I am happy you are enjoying it! Keep up the positivity 🙂

I think Newcastle is one of the only cities I’ve never been to in the UK. I’m originally from the Falkland Islands and when I first came over with my parents we spent our lives going between Leeds and Kent so I travelled alot. Looking at this guide I’m going to have to visit!

I used to live in the London with my parents when I was little. We had taken a trip to Newcastle once to see a football game between England and Bulgaria. I don’t remember much of the city itself, but the journey there and the game at St James’ Park was something that remains as a sweet childhood memory. I hope I have the chance to visit once again and have a beer or two at the local pubs. Maybe I’ll visit “The Strawberry” next to the stadium 🙂
Great posts by the way!
