Monday Medley #33

It’s Monday and the heatwave is older, my pale pins are safely sequestered beneath trousers again and I appear to be appreciating alliteration today. As always, these are my favourite things I’ve been reading and watching in the last week.…

Five Things I Wish I’d Done in Japan

You’re probably sick of me banging on about it by now, but in case you missed it, I spent just shy of two weeks in Japan in September last year. It was a complete whirlwind of a trip, as my…

My Christmas present from my Mum this year was a trip to Amsterdam. I absolutely love travelling and I’m currently pretty skint and it was looking like I wouldn’t be able to go away for some time. My Mum bought…

Things I Did In 2017

Ah, 2017. The global shit-storm made a nice contrast with my personal life which only got better as the year went on. I really struggle with remembering what I’ve actually done with my time, but one of the advantages of…

Seven Things I Wish I Knew Before Going to Japan
