Austria: I’ll be back!

Austria: I’ll be back!

After Bratislava, I caught the short train to Vienna for the rest of my Central European weekender. Talk about contrasts. Vienna goes on my list of places I could happily live forever (and is on a lot of other people’s lists as well). Elegant and unassuming yet so jam packed full of attractions, I wish I’d … Continue reading

Tired of London…

Tired of London…

…tired of life! This week I have done a range of London activities with my Naomi that have reminded me I will probably always be a tourist here, which is a wonderful thing.

I’ve been traveling for a while now and this has been my first, true 9-5 day for over 11 months. New work does not involve … Continue reading

Driving in the Cotswolds

The weekend flew by once again, particularly since we spent a large chunk of it out and about in the Cotswolds, a group of gorgeous villages to the west of the capital. Apparently it is the most popular tourist destination in England after London (mainly Oxford Street, I have come to realise!) and so a … Continue reading

Pain in East London

Pain in East London

Firstly, where are all the squirrels? I’ve been in London just over a week now and…WHERE ARE THEY? I have been carrying a packet of Tesco’s unsalted nut mix in my handbag every day and I’ve only seen two. And one of those was very, traumatisingly dead. In a city that has been dubbed the least … Continue reading
