A day out in Gravesend, Kent.

15th June, 2018
After living in Gravesend for a good few years now I have finally decided to take a little tour around my town and capture some of it's lovely places. This was an awesome experience for me as I never truly realised how beautiful this town is as I am always in a rush, caught up in mummy responsibilities and duties trying to get from A to B.
  
Gravesend, a lovely, historical town, full of stories and happy faces, located in north west Kent, England. This place has so much to offer from creative souls, beautiful parks such as Promanade by the river Thames, Jeskyn's park also known as the doggy park, The Shorne Country Park to number of landmarked buildings and places such as The Pocahontas Grave. What I love about Kent is that majority of it's towns slightly remind me of the Eastern European architecture such as Poland, Czech or Slovakia. I don't often go back to my country therefore these little accents make me feel home more than I already do. Nothing better than a nice stroll down the river side or through town streets with a cup of iced caramel latte on a sunny day.
   
  
My top places to dine...

Sultan Sofarasi
An Anatolian and Mediterranean grill restaurant that offers truly one of the most amazing food I have possibly tried in my entire life. Their meat dishes are cooked over hot coal and fused with rich flavours all in front of your eyes! My number one dish are charcoal chicken wings which come with the tastiest couscous and perfectly cooked rice along with a giant portion of salad and bread.
