What makes my heart beat faster
Guest post by Poppy Blake

What makes my heart beat faster? Well, that’s a great question to start off a blog post. For me, it would have to be travel. I love exploring new places, whether that be a hidden part of the city where I live, a seaside town I haven’t visited before, or somewhere much further afield.

This year I went to Tuscany, Florence to be precise – it was an amazing experience. Of course, I spent some time touring the world-famous museums and art galleries, the food markets and the spectacular gardens of the Pitti Palace, but the best days were the ones I spent simply meandering the cobbled streets, exploring the shady alleyways, stopping occasionally for a saffron-flavoured ice cream, a rich, dark espresso, or a delicious home-made pastry. Every nook offered an architectural surprise, every cranny a floral masterpiece. I’d love to go back with my sketch pad!

One of the best travel experiences I had was a trip to New York for a milestone birthday. It was an awe-inspiring place and the few days we had there didn’t do it justice – there was just so much to see! We took in a show, Mama Mia, boarded a boat trip up the Hudson River, rode the elevator to the top of the Rockefeller center, and spent an amazing day at the American Natural History museum. For me, though, the best thing was the visit to Tiffany’s. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favourite films and it was a ‘bucket list’ moment having my photo taken outside the iconic store.

However, I have to say that the best holiday I’ve ever had was when I went with my family to Walt Disney World in Florida. It was just such a magical place to visit with something for everyone, no matter what age! Just to see the expression on my family’s faces when they saw the daily parades with their favourite Disney characters taking centre stage, or the spectacular nightly firework displays, was worth the eighteen-hour journey to get there. It’s another place I’d like to go back to. Those rides certainly did make my heart beat faster!
