1. Take an early morning train to Bristol’s Temple Meads station, which is within walking distance of the city centre.
2. Walk down to the recently-renovated Broadmead for a spot of shopping and to grab lunch. Alternatively, check out the [Bristol Food & Wine Fair](http://www.bristolwineandfoodfair.co.uk/) which opens, happily, on the very day that I am in Bristol! It’s also within walking distance.
3. Walk up the hill to see my University. Take photos. Buy mementos.
4. Walk further up the hill to see my old residence, the Hawthorns. (If I have time and strength, I may visit my earlier residence, Clifton Hill House)
5. Cross the Clifton Suspension Bridge and walk all the way to Ashton Park, lie on the grass and relax.
6. Pop over to Clifton Village for a spot of tea. Take more photos.
7. Grab a cab back to Temple Meads and take the next train back to London. Ahh…
Along the way, if possible, I may do the following:
1. Ogle at the cool furniture at Habitat and take a catalogue, if they have any. I used to collect the annual catalogues religiously.
2. Buy a copy of The Big Issue to support homeless people who are trying to help themselves by doing honest work.
I am too early for the annual Balloon Festival.
This post may be updated as more things are discovered.
Plans for my Bristol day trip
How lovely to be able to go back to out haunts. Have a great time.
