Oh my Goth! Holiday fun and pretty snaps (1)!

Hi everyone, I'm back! Did you miss me? I see I have gained lots of new followers while I've been away... also, thanks to everyone who has entered my giveaway so far, best of luck to all of you. <3

I probably don't need to warn you that this is going to be a very picture-heavy post!

Let us begin with a cheesy pic taken shortly after arrival... we had fish and chips just after we got off the train, and then began hiking to our hotel. This is an awful pic of me and I really hate how my fringe looks, but I just couldn't resist showing you my too-cute sunnies. ^^

Dan and I stayed at the Cleveland Hotel in Alum Chine, within walking distance of Bournemouth... our lovely host Clive didn't seem to know what to make of us to start with, but by the end of our stay he was entertaining us at breakfast with random Gothy tidbits... did you know that there is an area in both York and Scandinavia called 'Gothland?' Also, apparently Clive's daughter went up to bed, aged 13, a perfectly normal teen girl, and came downstairs in the morning clad all in black with blue-and-pink hair. Badass. ^^

So this is us chillin' our hotel room... me displaying the same sense of humour as a fifteen-year-old chavvy lad and Dan looking like a boss... (check out those biceps, ladies ^^).

I managed to fit my kit into a single backpack, mostly by limiting my wardrobe to skirts, T-shirts, tights and a handful of accessories. Of course, my make-up bag practically required a crane to transport it, but never mind...

The first thing we did after dumping our bags at the hotel was to go for a romantic walk... the weather had brightened up considerably so I could ditch my coat. The picture of us together on the bench is one of my favourites from the whole trip. =)

We visited the Bournemouth tropical gardens overlooking the beach. It was absolutely beautiful! <3
This one above is me enjoying a cup of tea in the pleasure gardens... shortly afterwards, we went into a vintage and eco fashion event at the Pavilion, where I picked up some bits and bobs for clothing customisation.
This is our hotel (spot me wearing Dan's jacket, bottom left). Our room was enormous - see that huge second-floor bay window above my head? Well, that window and the one next to it were both ours!

When we asked for directions to Tesco's to get an evening snack, this was what we found! What a beautiful building! First time I've ever wanted to have my picture taken in a supermarket... =D

I live in the area called "West Gothland", but trust me, it's not very goth at all. :P There are theories that the goths came from this region of Sweden/the island of Gotland because of these strikingly similar names.

Gothland? In York? I've been a regular visitor to York not being too far from it and have never heard of the place. I googled the name and didn't find anything but did find there is a place called Goathland in North Yorkshire.

That's cool about the teenage daughter transforming overnight. You obviously made an impression on her!

Wherever it was you went for a walk it looks lovely. The Pleasure Gardens look cool as well.
