"Get Unbored"

...and get screwed over by the Fringe festival box office! Never book online ahead of time if you’re heading to the fringe. And never give your money to a bunch of wankers like the Fringe festival organisers. The free shows are among some of the best entertainment you’ll see anyway. Being a… Read

A healthy change!

Jul 25

The Heathrow injection, it ain't no joke. Since arriving here a mere 9 months ago I have certainly noticed my weight gain! At first it wasn’t such a huge concern and I figured things would settle down after I got into a routine and found a flat. But the thing about moving to a new city is, you… Read

Best Reads 2013

Feb 25

Even though it’s already two months into the new year, I’ve been inspired to write about my favourite reads of 2013. Since seeing my sister’s ardent year to year record keeping of read books, I started my own little list. Each year I managed to read a pitiful 13 to 15 books at the most. The… Read

Borough Market

Feb 25

One of the things I'm going to miss the most about working in this area of London, is walking down to Borough markets every Friday with my colleagues. The first day they took me there, I just walked around following my nose from stall to stall. The air was so rich with different aromas and… Read

Free London - Comedy shows

Free London activities are awesome. I don’t think I’ve ever lived in a city with so much readily available entertainment free of charge. From the museums and galleries to the plethora of parks and monuments. The discovery of the free comedy shows began with my move to East London, near… Read

Skating Escapades

Feb 22

My flatmate has a real fondness for skating. A couple of weeks ago he convinced me to go along with him to an ice skating rink in East London where we spent a few hours amount several other enthusiasts and beginners. I hadn't ice skated in a while and hesitantly stepped onto the ice making sure to… Read

Blind Tiger's The Little Mermaid

Feb 06

A little while ago I saw tickets for The Little Mermaid production on Groupon (One of the better Groupon experiences I've had). I bought a couple not knowing much about it and then I found out it was all the way in Hammersmith. So I gave the tickets to my flatmate for Christmas! But on the day of… Read

Oxford

Feb 03

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was interested in visitng Oxford initially after the allusion to Jay being an “Oxford Man” In the Great Gatsby. Clearly this title meant something of importance, that coupled with the Oxford English dictionaries spurred my interest in the self proclaimed… Read

Touristing

Jan 24

One of the best aspects of working holidays is being able to draw out the tourist experience when it suits me. I love exploring new cities but weekend visits always make me feel a bit anxious because I know that I will have to narrow down the list of everything that I want to see. I felt that way… Read

Literary Travel

Jan 23

I realised recently that a few of my travels in the past few years have inadvertently taken on a literary theme and seen me visit some locations of my favourite characters and books. Some of the best: As I was travelling around Dresden in 2011 I was thinking about Slaughterhouse five and Billy… Read
