ABOUT ME

The Weekend Tourist is a blog written by Jess Friend Bartlett. Sometimes we only do touristy things on holiday - 25 days annual leave a year. That’s a shame, as we’ve 104 weekend days for exploring. This blog is all about discovering your local neighbourhood, attractions, historic places, local eateries and independents, which for me is in Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and the wider Cotswolds, UK. And when annual leave adds up, you'll find the occasional far flung adventure.
