Spending a Month at the Edinburgh Fringe

Hey, all! This August I spent the month in Edinburgh as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Once a month the city is filled with people all rushing to see as many shows as possible. The Fringe is famous for being somewhere where all manner of new writing, experimental theatre, and up and coming artists…

My Trip to Torino

Hey, everyone! It’s been a while since I last posted but I’m here now to tell you all about my trip to Torino in July. Located in Northern Italy, Torino is one of Italy’s most beautiful, historic city. There are so many beautiful plazas and cafes all through the streets, making wandering the streets a…

Visiting Dole in June

There are many beautiful towns and cities in France, but Dole was one that I hadn’t heard of until I was fortunate enough to make the trip there myself. Famous for being the birthplace of Louis Pasteur, Dole is steeped in history. When walking through the streets its remarkable to see how many of the…

Making the most of summer days…

This summer Britain has experienced a very rare thing indeed: warmth. There has been sunshine and hot days, which are aspects of summer which normally bypass the British Isles. My friend and I have been joking for over a year that we should have a day where we go rowing on the lake. Neither of…

Snow Day!!!

As anyone currently in the U.K. will have noticed, there has been a lot of snow over the past few days. Snow can cause inconvenience for some people. Anyone who relies on public transport will tell you the negative points involved. And yes, it is cold. But Britain is no stranger to cold at this…

Situated near other attractions such as Brandenburger Tor, Checkpoint Charlie is ideally located to mix in with the rest of your sightseeing.

Ice cream for two…

Although it’s the middle of February right now, I’m going to look back to a slightly sunnier time. In Berlin’s Tiergarten there are tons of little cafes and restaurants. In the heat of summer, there are few things better than indulging in some ice cream. Surrounded by leafy trees and tranquil ponds, this is the…

A View of Alexanderplatz

Here is a view of Alexanderplatz from the windows of the TV Tower in Berlin, Germany. Alexanderplatz holds a key place in Berlin’s history, having beenĀ  a centre of nightlife in the 1920s before becoming part of the German Democratic Republic. This photo itself was taken from the windows of the Fernsehturm, the TV Tower…

Saturday Market in Sallanches…

One of the charming features of a small town is the weekly market. While we all take ourselves off to the supermarket or a big department store when we need something, it can be far more fun to spend an hour meandering around a local market. People from across the town and beyond come together…

Looking back to Berlin Beer Festival…

January can arguably be one of the worst months of the year. It’s cold, dark, Christmas is over, and the promise of sunshine and summer seems impossibly far away. But that’s not to say that there aren’t beautiful things to be found in this month. Signs of beauty can be found all year round, and…
