Wander/lust – – (let me count the ways)

Vietnam – Hoi An

From Sapa, we caught a night bus down to Ha Noi, spent a couple more hours exploring the Old Quarter and then caught another night bus to Hue.  The Imperial citadel of Hue… Continue reading

We arrived in Kampot late in the afternoon and it was almost dark by the time we were settled in our hostel and on our way into town. We’d been told by numerous… Continue reading

We arrived in Battambang in the torrential rain and by the time we had finally made it to our hostel we were completely soaked through, it was dark, and we were starving. We… Continue reading

Cambodia – Phnom Penh (part two)

It hasn’t taken us long to feel at home here – we’re used to the dust, the stares and haggling with the tuk tuk drivers. I really really like Phnom Penh and would… Continue reading

52/52 – (my) Southbank

49/52 – The Sushi Eatery in Soho

Okay, I have a confession to make. As much as I love (obsess over/ fantasise about/ crave) sushi, I’m sort of a wimp when it comes to the whole raw fish thing. I’ve… Continue reading

Somewhere in the East, East end of London, (a minute’s walk from Homerton station), The NANA café serves up bottomless cups of tea, hearty breakfasts, comfort food and extra crispy bacon (just the… Continue reading

Am I the only person who wants to burst into that song from ‘Bedknobs and Broomsticks’ every time I hear the phrase ‘Portobello Rd’? Anything and everything a chap can unload, is sold by… Continue reading

20/52 – The Shard and The Tower of London

My housemate Tom invited me to a business breakfast event hosted by the Times. It was a debate about Britain’s place in the European Union hosted by Business Editor Richard Fletcher, with Roland… Continue reading

Brick Lane, deep in the heart of Shoreditch, is pretty much everything I love about living in East London. Even though I’ve visited quite a few times this semester to explore the famous… Continue reading

1/52 The British Library
