Visiting Bury St Edmunds

Bury St Edmunds

Right after I just said that I want my blog to be about long-form educational pieces, here I am writing a travel-y post. I just don’t make sense, do I?!

I stayed as a guest of Ibis Styles, a gorgeous hotel with perfect location in the city. The whole hotel is styled perfectly, with a big helping of humour to go along with it (much like the people of Leeds, I found). [Read more…]
