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 way you could squeeze all the best bits of Newcastle in to 24 hours but this little guide should help visitors make the most of a flying visit.
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!
