If you are anything like my husband and I, you are normally counting down the days to the next bank holiday and a Monday of work. Nine times out of ten we start ours with a lie in, breakfast in bed and then we plan our day out.
In the last two years we have learnt to make the most of the places that have been right on our doorstep as there are some amazing views, sights and activities to do. So here are my top 5 things to do with your fiancé this bank holiday.
1. Sunset walk along Seapark, Holywood
Seapark is a beautiful beach in Holywood. With its own carpark, a play park for the kids and a walkway through to Bangor it is perfect for a walk with the kids or with your pets day or night. We love heading here at night time as it is very picturesque and extremely quiet helping to increase its romanticism.
Ritas and The Perch in Belfast City Centre are my two favourite locations for idealic cocktails. The quirky bars help to make your afternoon or evening more unique. They are the perfect place to relax and unwind with your other half – just enjoy each other’s company.
Carl and I are a little weird. We love something a little out there and from the minute I enter We are Vertigo to the minute I leave I laugh. As an adult you really aren’t meant to be bouncing on a trampoline but it’s hilarious!
In the world or work we often become so serious so a bank holiday is the perfect time to relax, unwind and remember your youth. Have you ever went to your favourite childhood place with your other half? Last year, we finally went together to Barry’s and it was fantastic trying out all the rides with my hubby. Big kids at heart!
5. Bake a cake
I love baking and Carl love eating! What better way to spend your holiday baking something together and then enjoying it with a cuppa. Sometimes the best days are those spent at home wrapped up warm eating things we really shouldn’t, so enjoy it together.
Whatever you end up doing I hope you have a fantastic Bank Holiday. Spend it with the ones you love and enjoy their company.
