Smiling When Everything Goes Wrong

September 25, 2018

Right before I moved to Australia, I decided I wanted to create a British bucket list of all the things I wanted to do before I left. This list consisted of a Scottish road trip to see Loch Ness, the Isle of Skye, the Hogwarts Express and some reindeers. I wanted to hike Snowdon. I wanted to see the poison garden of Alnwick. I wanted to do a vegan cooking class in the world’s best vegetarian cooking school in Bath. I wanted to do the Harry Potter Warner Brothers tour in London. I wanted to do everything the UK had to offer! I mostly wanted to keep myself busy because my actual life was depressing me immensely. And yet I never got around to doing any of those things.

Why? Well, I was working. I hadn’t earned even a quarter of the amount I originally wanted to for my trip so I spent my last month in the UK hustling by making lattes.

If you’re coming here as a holiday, here are my top ten things to do. Continue Reading…

Vegan Activism at Notting Hill

February 18, 2016

This weekend I ventured down to London to visit a friend for her birthday. While I was there I decided to go to Notting Hill, I had no interest in the markets, I never saw the film and I couldn’t be bothered finding the banksy art work (it was cold, wet and crowded with tourists). I only wanted to see the colourful houses and get out of there. I have a thing for colourful places, if you didn’t already know. Continue Reading…

Bath’s Skyline Walk

January 24, 2016

Bath was the city where I spent my university years and subsequently it will always have a special place in my heart. Having lived away from Bath for almost half a year now, I can finally see it objectively. Although it’s a beautiful city I would happily visit again in a second, I’m glad that chapter in my life is over. Now, I can move on to bigger, better things. Continue Reading…
