Who is behind This Bristol Brood?
I’m Angharad, mama of three, an expert on Bristol, blogger, travel writer, neon obsessive, sun worshipper and gin ‘enthusiast’. I am happiest outside in the sunshine and I do a mean velociraptor impression. Did I mention my most favourite drink on this Earth is gin? I am extremely hazardous on a bicycle, which has nothing to do with the gin…well, not always.
A bona fide West Country lass, I lived in Bristol for 17 years under various guises – as a University of Bristol Student, a ‘young professional’ and as a mama with young kids to entertain. On top of that, I’ve also written endlessly on every subject you could imagine about the city for Visit Bristol, so I’ve got some serious Bristol-loving credentials under my belt. You can read more about my Bristol life story here.
Travel writing credentials
During a 4-month ‘Wandermoon’ travelling across Africa in 2012, I started a travel blog so family and friends could keep up with our adventures, when it started to garner good feedback, I continued sharing my travel tales and tips, hoping to inspire readers to explore. My passion for travel, engaging writing and staying in exciting characterful places, led me to Sawday’s, where I became Editor of the ‘French Special Places to stay’ guides. Since 2014, I’ve been employed to shout from the cyber rooftops, writing about Bristol, Bath and surrounding area for the past 4 years as Content Editor for Visit Bristol, and then Digital Project Coordinator for Go Bath Bristol.
About this Bristol blog
This Bristol Brood blog is a resource for local parents and visitors to the city and draws on my expert local knowledge of the area. I regularly share round-ups of things to do in Bristol at various times of year, easy day trips from Bristol and the numerous ways to entertain children in Bristol.
I also write about family-friendly microadventures in the UK and abroad, which includes long-haul travel, staycation weekends away and trips during the school holidays.
