Hello September: Bratwurst, Afternoon Tea and Birthday Giveaways

From Bratwurst in Nuremberg to Afternoon Tea in Birmingham, take a look at what’s coming up in September 2018.

Part of the Old Town in Nuremberg, Germany

Summer is drawing to a close and as my sons return to school, thoughts are drifting towards all things autumnal.

Here on SallyAkins.com, I’ve got masses of great content lined up for the month ahead. From travel to one of Germany’s great cities, to dining at some of Birmingham’s fabulous restaurants, there’s plenty planned for you to check out.

And you can also take part in some fantastic giveaways, because this month mark’s my blog’s 6th Blog Birthday. Yes, it’s now 6 years since I started blogging here at SallyAkins.com. I can hardly believe that I’ve reached that milestone already!

So here’s what’s coming up in the next month here on the blog.

In Travel

As this post goes live, I’ll be spending the weekend in Nuremberg, Germany, thanks to Nürnberg Tourismus. I’ll be exploring the Old Town and architecture, as well as looking at Nuremberg’s more recent history. And I can’t wait to try out the famous Nuremberg Bratwurst, Brezen and Lebküchen!

I’ve been looking forward to this trip for months, and you can follow along over on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

And once I’m back in the UK, I’ll be posting my suggestions on the best things to do and places to see in the city. As well as write ups here on the blog, I’ll also be sharing videos from my trip over on the SallyAkins.com YouTube channel.

I’ll also be posting my recommendations for the best things to do in the Scottish city of Dundee. The new V&A museum opens its doors this month, so it’s a great time to visit this amazing city.

Afternoon tea at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham, UK

Closer to home, I’ll be trying out the new season’s menu at the Aria restaurant in the Hyatt Regency Birmingham. I sampled the hotel’s Afternoon Tea a little earlier in the year, so I’m looking forward to trying out their menu.

And I’ll also be paying a visit to the Edwardian tearoom at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery for Sunday Lunch. Will it make my list of the best places for Sunday Lunch in Birmingham? You’ll have to wait and see!

At Home

Yes, it’s definitely celebration time here at SallyAkins.com, as I’m marking the blog’s 6th Birthday.

So that means a week of giveaways, starting with a £50 cash giveaway via PayPal which opens on Monday. You will also have the chance to win a fabulous chocolate gift, a personalised passport holder, and a great gadget for your kitchen. And there’s even cake to be won!

There’s so much to look forward to here on SallyAkins.com in September 2018. What plans do you have for the month ahead?
