Week 33: Last week in London

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 31 Oct 2011 | Views [369]

A couple of months ago I wrote about trying and trying again until you succeed and though the week had barely begun I felt like a hypocrite. Here in London they’ve had a number of film premieres and after my failed attempt at seeing the Harry Potter  ... Read more >

Week 32: Which is about nothing

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 28 Oct 2011 | Views [342]

The Queen wandered around my home country last week which I suppose it was only fair after I’ve been wandering around her home country for the last couple of months. Hearing about the Queen’s visit from a British point of view really makes me wish we ... Read more >

Week 31: Where I ironed tablecloths and folded napkins

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 23 Oct 2011 | Views [538]

London is very deceptive in autumn. When I see a sunny clear day where the leaves are still green on the trees I automatically think it’s warm outside but that is not always the case. After leaving the house several times with only a jacket and then ... Read more >

Week 30 which was spent being bored

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 14 Oct 2011 | Views [510]

The most brain power I use all week is thinking of what to write in this here journal. When I’m actually travelling  it’s quite easy to write about the places I visit but when I’m in London, well sadly enough London’s like base camp for me, and there’s ... Read more >

Week 29: Where I went to visit the Queen and to see a King

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 3 Oct 2011 | Views [431]

After whinging about how the weather always turns cold when I come back to London, the clouds decided to spite me and disappear for most of the week and the autumn weather was a lot warmer than it has been all summer. Now I finally understand what ... Read more >

Week 24: Come rain, hail or shine

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 28 Aug 2011 | Views [622]

It’s raining, it’s pouring and now it’s bright and sunny. Come rain, hail or shine is not a phrase I’m going to use again, especially in London because well, chances are it’s going to rain. When I got up early on Tuesday morning determined to get a ... Read more >

Week 20: If you don’t succeed try and try again

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 29 Jul 2011 | Views [474]

I started this week armed with my Royal Historical Palaces membership and my newly acquired National Trust membership determined to make use of them. So off I went on a surprisingly warm Monday to visit the first place on my list; Morden Hall Park.... Read more >

Week 18: Which was spent living in a slot like manner

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 19 Jul 2011 | Views [466]

This week I ate, slept and in between watched a whole heap of movies. The end. Haha! So easily one week of my life can be dismissed because that’s the way I want to remember it. I could start being philosophical again, as I tend to become when I have ... Read more >

Week 17: Coming back to cold grey London (in Summer)

WORLDWIDE | Wednesday, 13 Jul 2011 | Views [419]

So after almost four months I’ve flown in or out of nearly all of London’s airports (Heathrow, Stanstead, Gatwick and London City Airport), with Luton to expect me at the end of July. It’s quite a change from living in a city with only one airport where ... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 4 Jul 2011 | Views [630]

London to do list: Climb the dome at St Pauls – tick; visit Madame Tussaud’s – tick; watch a show in the West End – tick. And that was only one day. The week started off by waiting for over three hours in line for tickets to Wimbledon and we only ... Read more >

Week 11 – I need a holiday!!!

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 30 May 2011 | Views [933]

Before I left I read an article about how stressful it is to plan a holiday. ‘Stressful?’ I thought ‘All you need to do is book the flights and the accommodation. How on earth can that be stressful?’ Naive and inexperienced traveller that I was; the ... Read more >

Week 10 which was a rather uneventful week

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 23 May 2011 | Views [566]

On the rare occasion that I used to go away on holiday, or just away for the weekend, I used to really resent coming back to work, and I mean really resent it. I used to sit under a black cloud for weeks muttering under my breath, and if it wasn’t ... Read more >
