Staying around campus during breaks? Do not worry.
Hooray, spring is coming, and good news follows. It is really great that now we have been able to meet friends outdoor (two different households with a maximum of 6 people). We have been waiting for months to socialize and meet friends. For those who are staying around campus this break, do not worry. I have some tips for enjoying the holidays.
Alright, it is time to spend breaks with some quality activity. Firstly, the Warwick sports Hub provides us with some outdoor sports, such as football and Tennis. You can spend time with friends while keeping your body fit. That is not all. Soon, by 12 April, the Warwick sports Hub will be reopened for indoor sports, such as Badminton (and hopefully, Squash will soon). If you are a badminton fan, we probably will meet on the court and see each other playing badminton. Hopefully, the league (including Badminton) will soon come back. I cannot wait to join it.
The next option is walking around our beloved campus. I am sure you agree that our campus has some nice spots to visit, and now spring has shown its magic. I can tell that near the Warwick Art center, and the old sports hub are lovely places where you can see the beautiful cherry blossoms and tulips. Also, spending time having lunch at Piazza with friends is a good choice. You will find a good vibe there, meeting other students enjoying the nice weather. However, well, remember to check the forecast before going there since a day it is shiny, and not surprisingly, it will be pretty cold the next day.
The next place I recommend is Canley Ford. It is a walking distance area near the Canon park shopping center. It took me around 6 minutes to get there by bike from the Charter Avenue area near Aldi. You will find a freshly environmental place with some rivers, excellent walking tracks, and green woods. I met some people walking their dogs and passed some children riding a bike around. It is worth visiting for sure. Also, some empty spaces where you can have a picnic with friends or do some outdoor games, such as frisbee.
Last but not least, a nice place to visit is the Chesterton Windmill. It is located around 4-5 miles from Parish church Leamington Spa. Unfortunately, I could not find a bus from Leamington Spa city centre. However, finding a taxi is easy and worth going to. The Windmill is in the middle of a field, and it is own private land. We are lucky, though. It is open for the public to visit the Windmill. Although I expected to see many windmills, it is only one Windmill, but it is beautiful. The surrounding area is a vast field as far as we can see. Do not forget to bring some food and drink since it is pretty far from any shop facility.
