Boeing’s Museum of Flight

For my 24th birthday I decided to have a low key day with the family at one of my favorite places, the Museum of Flight. The Boeing plant in Seattle and Everett are just amazing and definitely one of the places that inspired me to start flying.

If you plan on visiting the area clear your whole schedule cause there’s a LOT to do. There’s planes and prototypes from when flight was first imagined, a Boeing 747, and you can even tour the Air Force One during Eisenhower’s presidency. There’s simulators, #-D cinema, and tours.

Boeing field is also a public airport so at their cafe you can sit outside and watch planes, jets, and Cessnas take-off and land. The whole family enjoyed it, especially my grandfather who is a fanatic.

There’s also quite a few events going on at this place so make sure you check out their website to see when you want to go.

The museum is located just outside of Seattle so you don’t really have to worry about traffic either and theres tons of parking.

The ‘Big Stud’ airplane was quite a favorite among the men in my family.

Festive times

Being away from my family in England has been absolute torture, so when Christmas time was just around the corner I was literally bouncing off the walls with excitement. Although the English weather is nothing to be anticipated whilst I’ve enjoyed my days in the Spanish sun, I felt like I needed the cold to complete the festive season. I treated my family to real presents this year compared to trying my hand at DIY presents last year. Whilst I was spoilt rotten with a MacBook laptop which I’m in love with!!!! I also missed the food and indulged a little too much with the cheeseboards 😀

CHEESE!

As for the New Year’s my friend Joanna and I hit the Puerto Banus bars along the coast. I enjoyed the evening drinking several (oh hell, a bucket load) Caiprinas. Yum! I got a fabulous dress from a boutique on Catherine Hill in Frome, England called Boho. It was a gorgeous red and flowed beautifully. Paired with my white and gold heels I was ready for the evening. We met a lovely photographer and fashion designer whom we partied with till 8am.
