London (Let me count the ways)

This past weekend my friend Kati came to stay with me in London and I got to spend two whole days running around Bethnal Green, Shoreditch and Covent Garden, taking photos, shopping in Brick Lane, eating… Continue reading

Vietnam – Ha Noi

After Kati left us to go back to England (sad times) Abs and I flew straight from Ho Chi Minh (which is in the southern end of Vietnam) to Ha Noi, right up… 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

25/52 – Portobello Road Market

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

23/52 – Borough Market

2/52 Brick Lane

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

Sun Baby

I’m in Turkey! This is it; my final sunny, relaxing holiday, and then my feet will be on English soil for the forseeable future. The money I saved before April has done its… Continue reading

4.2 (Tokyo), Osaka and Nara

After a final day in Tokyo checking out the Shibuya district (100¥ shops, the best ever Katsu curry and the famous scramble crossing), we took a bullet train south to Kansai province, Osaka.… Continue reading

3.6 Napoli

“We’re going to Naples!” Is, in my experience, a statement most often followed by a severe warning about thievery, mugging, or violent crime. (Except in one instance; “hehe, Naples sounds like nipples…”) Following… Continue reading

3.2 Florence

We arrived in Florence after a long and uncomfortable train journey, most of which was spent hunkered down on our rucksacks in the hot and stuffy cargo hold of an old and alarmingly… Continue reading

(1.6 Sex and el Ciudad)

Okay, a quick update… We have moved out of Lourdes´house! At this point, we would have happily moved back to the accomodation that originally fell down, even if it was still partially collapsed,… Continue reading

1.5 Sun Temple, sun and temples.

I would like to retract my previous statement of “Ola” I of course meant to say “Hola!”. How embarassing. Anyway, Los Neñosssss! I am enjoying them. They are fun to hang out with,… Continue reading
