How to spend Christmas alone, visit a church nearby for a cuppa or simply for a chat to avoid loneliness. Loneliness can result in so many things such as depression, stress, anorexia, even leading to suicidal thoughts, which has proved to be costing the NHS millions of pounds each year.   Throughout this post, I am going to share about 10 different churches that I found about a mile radius of Bournemouth Town Centre. But why share churches though…? I chose to...

Bournemouth Christmas Tree Wonderland raised Bournemouth’s profile to another level this year. Thousands of people visited the Lower Gardens to witness the magical presentation including glittering teddy bears to smiling gingerbread people.   The Lower Gardens, Bournemouth’s coastal villages (Boscombe, Southbourne, Westbourne) and the rest of the town centre is dazzling with all assorts of colourful displays. The gardens are populated with keen visitors touring the town, day and night.   The rain was pouring as evidenced by some of my photos but the...

Russell-Cotes, a house turned Museum and Gallery is a beautiful Victorian house. In 1901, Merton Russell-Cotes gave his wife Annie, a birthday present in the form of a dream house on a cliff-top. The house overlooked the sea in the town of Bournemouth. Merton and Annie wanted to live in comfortable style, and it took them four years to build the house. Much more so, they also wanted to house their vastly growing exotic collections from worldwide travels.   I adore museums and...

Every time I go to a restaurant, to eat, or to just chill and drink, socialising e.t.c, the only thing that will be in my head is FOOD/DRINK. This time around, l took a step further. I came up with five things I like most about Hot Rocks Cocktail Bar & Restaurant, after people  kept recommending the place. 1. Hot Rocks supports local charities. Normally, small actions make big differences. Donating time to charities is considered good. Donating money is very great...

Relaxing at The Stable Bar & Restaurant was not our agenda. My friend Gemma, and I, planned to chill in town doing our usual therapeutic window-shopping. Sometimes being out, getting some fresh air is good for both our physical and mental state. Somehow, we ended up at Bournemouth’s Westover Gardens. Again, this was not on our to-do list. Our walk-unfriendly shoes restricted us as to how far we can walk around the gardens. [caption id="attachment_15881" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] Esther Tendai Burt and...

Had I weighed myself before and after the Easter weekend, results would have definitely shown lose of weight somehow. My husband and I walked most of the time. I never realised the intensity of the walks until I got back home and felt differently when doing my usual squats, feeling a bit of pain here and there. I know it sounds like I am 80/90 years old but trust me Liverpool walks were a bit extreme.   The Liverpool Museum was a...

The next couple of blog posts are going to be flashbacks. It finally turned out we went to Liverpool for the weekend. Really…??? Why Liverpool, of all the places? Well, Liverpool is full of undeniable history for our nation. To top it up, Liverpool also happens to have remarkably personal links with my husband and he wanted to share this with me. Mark’s great, grandfathers worked on the now called Britannia Adelphi Hotel. This was the hotel we stayed in...
