Wonderful Wednesday #28

Wonderful Wednesdays have been a bit hit and miss as of late, something that I would usually apologise for, but ya know what? Sod it. Ya ain’t getting one! With coursework, revision and a sneaky booze filled three days in Poland, life has been pretty hectic lately which is just fine. I’ve decided I’m not going to keep up with the silly expectations that I put on myself, cause well, that wouldn’t be very wonderful, would it? So while these wonderful moments may be scarce on the blog, they aren’t in real life. Luckily, I have a little bit of time this week to share them with you, you lucky ducks. On with the wonderful!

Flying 

I recently took to the skies and I have to say it is an absolutely magical place to be. Being in the air, blue sky surrounding you and a blanket of clouds below you, I always feel amazed how it is even possible. Oh yes, airports and aeroplanes are my happy place, and I get extremely giddy and excitable whenever I’m about to head off on an adventure. I haven’t been to that many places yet, so the novelty of flying hasn’t worn off and I really hope it doesn’t.

Polish Wedding 

The adventure I mentioned was only short, a mini three day break to Poland for a close friends wedding. It was a bit slap-dash, very rushed and completely bonkers (all they do is drink), but it has made me yearn to go back and visit later on in the year.  The night we arrived, we had an impromptu party, with the biggest pizza I have EVER seen in my life and lots of vodka. I woke up the next day with a hangover, having no idea how I was going to survive the next two days.

Turns out, the hangover on the first day was NOTHING compared to the hangover on the second and third days. My goodness. Kids, do not fly on a hangover. It will destroy you.

The wedding itself was gorgeous. Obviously, the ceremony was in Polish (so I didn’t have a clue what was going on), but the church was beautiful, as were the newly-weds.  After the church, we got taken to the venue where we were told we wouldn’t get picked up again until 3am (this was at 5pm). We ate lots of amazing food, drank too much vodka and danced all night.

Polish weddings have completely ruined English weddings for me now. They are so good. If I ever get married, I am going to do it in the spirit of the Polish; lots of food, lots of vodka and lots of dancing!

Modern Family 

Revision has had me going a little bit stir-crazy, and the only thing that is getting me through the sheer mind-numbingly boringness of it all, is binge-watching modern family. At this moment of time, Phil Dunphy is the only thing keeping me sane right now.

Rooftop Sunsets 

When you picture rooftop sunsets you’re probably picturing an exotic location, with perhaps a cocktail in hand?? Well, this rooftop sunset involved me being in my jimjams, sitting on the rooftop of my boyfriends work van, sat in the middle of a country lane watching the sunset go down over some sheep-filled fields.

To provide a bit of context, we were driving back home after getting a Mcflurry and I asked Dave to stop, so I could appreciate the sunset. He suggested that we got on top of the van so we could get a better look, so we did! It was spontaneous, beautiful and kinda romantic, despite it being not so glam. 

Evening Strolls 

Close to where I live, about a 10-minute drive away is a little-hidden place called Bucks Mills, a pebble ‘beach’ that only the locals know about. One evening this week, we took a little drive out there to clear the cobwebs away and get some fresh air. It has a cute little waterfall and a stunning rugged coastline. One of Devons best kept secrets!

  • I’d love to go to a wedding in a different country, I bet it’s so interesting! My friend went to one in Norway recently and she said people kept getting up and singing songs everyone seemed to know the words to!

    • It was definitely an experience, even if I had a permanent three-day hangover as a result! xx

  • That sounds like a great wedding, and a lovely evening walk. I haven’t ever visited Poland, but it looks like one to add to the list! x

  • Helen

    What stunning scenery you’ve got on your doorstep! I LOVE an evening stroll – and the beach is the perfect place for it 🙂

    • Yeah, I’m very lucky! I always complain about living in Devon and being so far away from anything, but it does have its perks! xx

  • Laura Torninoja

    That wedding sounds like so much fun! I’ve heard stories about Polish weddings and it sounds like they are everything I imagined them to be and more :’D And just thinking about having to fly on a third day hangover makes me feel ill so I salute you for braving it, haha! x

    • You need to befriend someone Polish who is about to get married, honestly it was crazy! Hahah. Thank you, it was horrible at the time but a funny story to look back on! xx

  • How refreshing to not apologise for being absent for real life! I am training myself to do the same because you know, if you miss a post it isn’t the end of the world.

    It sounds like the wedding was really lovely and that dress is gorgeous!! Glad to hear you had a good time even if you were nursing a headache for 3 days 😀

    I really love the idea of an evening stroll and will be starting these up in our own neighbourhood when the weather improved a bit.

    Oh my goodness that beach is stunning! Devon has so many hidden treasures that I can’t wait to explore.
    This is such a fab list. I totally agree with flying. I’ve only been on one plane, but it comepletely blew my mind with how amazing it was to be above the clouds. The wedding sounds amazing. You should treasure that sunset memory forever. It sounds just lovely!

    Have a wonderful rest of your week
