The title of the post gave it to you that this colourful piece of geography, Portmeirion, is in the UK otherwise most whether from UK or elsewhere would have struggled hard and in all probability said this place is in Italy or Greece.

We stopped at Portmeirion for 5-6 hours while visiting Wales. And i have to admit that i was absolutely awe struck and couldn't believe that such a vibrant, colourful and unique village that had Italy written all over it was actually part of the UK. The United Kingdom surprises you beyond bounds if you dare to explore. 
1. A bit of history - Portmeirion is a tourist village in Gwynedd, North Wales. It was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village

2. How to get to Potmeirion- Its a perched in so does not have its own train station. The nearest one is   Minffordd station which has connections from all parts of the UK.  From Minffordd, Portmeirion is a 20 min walk.  If staying in The Portmeirion hotel you can ask for a free shuttle from Minffordd station. You can easily find out the best route for your time of travel on Google maps or  Rome2rio.

3. There is an entry fee to get inside the village which i didn't expect. The village is maintained by a charity and the entry fees goes into the maintenance and welfare of the village. 

4. On the coastline of Wales it one of the best seaside places to holiday in the UK. A great place to honeymoon as well in the UK. The Portemeirion hotel is right on the waterfront but i am sure you can find fab airbnbs in the village. 

5. Their are a few open air small restaurants and tea rooms in the village. The food is good. Definitely satisfy the hungry tourist. We reached at about 12 and after a bit of exploring had an Italian lunch. Then explored a bit more and had tea. There are many gelato shops too.

6. Wander around the streets soaking into all the ornate Italian touches. Beautiful manicured gardens with the loveliest flowers. Rolling hills on one side and coastline on the other. One can spend hours and hours in this lovely paradise but just for reference,  at a stretch you can cover the whole village in about 2 hours or so. 

7. We also went on a group hiking trail further deep in the village. Surrounded by loads of fauna and ended it at a beautiful lake which seemed like in the middle of nowhere. 

8. Near the coastline is a beautiful structure of white and blue which reminded me of Greece actually. 

9. There is a cave trail as well near the coastline, quite fun for kids. 

10. Portmeirion is an absolute heaven for Instagrammers. Just look at the spots. 

11. You can also do some shopping of beautiful pottery when there.

We were in Portmeirion for 5-6 hours and were able to check out the whole village, take beautiful pictures and also have lunch plus tea. Definitely like a definite one to add to your itinerary when visiting wales. And A MUST VISIT PLACE in the UK that also deserves to be chosen for a night or two of relaxation.  Portmeirion, truly special, well deserves a spot in top colourful  places to visit in Europe.

Cant believe Valentines day is already here. Valentines day is almost a universal holiday of sorts celebrating love and as a person up for celebrations i do like it.  

Rising up to the challenge of finding a suitable gift on Valentine’s Day for the woman who seems to have everything, and if you have yet to decide upon a Valentine’s Day gift for the woman in your life, it isn’t too late. Here are a few great Valentine’s gift ideas that are guaranteed to please.


valentines day gift ideas, indian blogger, london blog, liberty flower, spring flower, gift ideas for busy career woman

 A Workplace Delivery – If you can be sure that she will be in the office at a given time, why not have your gift delivered to her office? If you have the gift delivered in the afternoon, she will probably think you have forgotten and will receive a lovely surprise when the package unexpectedly arrives, and for good effect, you can add a bunch of red roses and a romantic card.

 Sterling Silver Jewellery – No matter her style, sterling silver jewellery is a sound bet, and something stylish from an online design collection would be appropriate. There are stylish necklaces and bracelets you can get from Silver by Mail in the UK for a Valentine gift, and the items will arrive well in time for the big day. Buying from an online jeweller has many advantages, not least the lower prices, and they generally have a much wider selection of items, which makes selection that much easier. There are some great silver jewellery images online that might give you some inspiration.

  Power Bank – She probably has her phone to her ear constantly and would definitely appreciate having power on the move. There are several options, and choose one that allows for several full charges, which is more than enough for any business tycoon. Select a colour that she likes, and you could also buy her a smartphone case, if she doesn’t already have one.

  A Desk Organiser – If she hasn’t gone completely digital, she would no doubt love a desk organiser, which she can use to plan her busy week. You know her routine and her preferences, and if she would prefer something a little more romantic, why not book a special weekend getaway?


          A Relaxing Spa Day – This might be difficult to arrange, especially if she is always on the              move. Buy her a spa voucher that she can use whenever she has the time, and she will certainly appreciate a day of pampering, which will charge her batteries. If she’s the adventurous type, why not book her an experience gift? She can go skydiving or drive a Ferrari around a race track, and you can accompany her for the surprise of a lifetime.

          A Surprise Car Detail – If you can manage to borrow her car for the day, have it cleaned, waxed and detailed, then return it without saying a word. If you have a set of keys, then drive it away while she’s at work and have it returned before she leaves, which will be a nice surprise for any woman.

The above are just a few ideas and with the clock ticking, you shouldn’t leave to too long before making a decision. You still have time to order sterling silver jewellery online, and with a Google search, you can browse a wide range of designer jewellery, and with a secure online payment, your gift will be on its way. You can check this post for different ways to celebrate Valentines day and this post for some fun insights into valentines day.
