It’s the last month of summer and I already want to be back in June and start it all over again! Time sure does fly when you’re having fun and that’s exactly what I have been doing since being done with school last month.
With spring in full bloom and the sun gracing us with her presence almost daily, an afternoon outdoors was long overdue.
As unplanned as this trip to Kew Gardens was, I’m glad my friend Yuqi convinced me to join her. The Royal botanical gardens are a perfect example of what happens when you take super great care of fresh grass, indigenous plants, flowers and aquatic life – a whole ecosystem is born and thrives, gifting us its natural, effervescent beauty.
Hello good people!
Hope the month of May is treating you as well as it is me. I recently came back from a nice little weekend in Paris and all I kept thinking on the way back was I wish I had more time there! Paris is a beautiful city and three days is not enough time to really get a feel of it.
London is a city rich in history, in culture and also rich in art. Galleries and museums are a dime a dozen in various parts of the city and the exhibitions showcased at some of these places are not to be missed. One such gallery is Sotheby’s.
Brunch is the genius combination of breakfast and lunch – not such a wild guess right? Yeah well, I take excitement in word puns. I also take excitement in all things breakfast related, I really love breakfast food so next to breakfast, brunch is my second favourite type of eating experience.
Christmas Markets are quite a big trend in Europe and I only just realized that two weeks ago. London is looking very festive now that the holidays are literally right around the corner (read next week) and amongst all the Christmas markets popping up all over the place, one in particular is quintessential to London and that is The Winter Wonderland Christmas fair.
The markets have one common factor – they all have vendors selling nice little holiday trinkets that you can’t find at a normal store and a lot of homemade decor, accessories. The food at these markets my goodness! So much variety and so much yummy goodness from all over the world, all under one roof.
Okay I’m going to stop reminiscing now and give you a recap of three out of very many Christmas markets in London that you should visit.
Foodie post alert!
Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland was my home for the weekend and what a weekend it was.
Currently writing this while on a bus to Edinburgh, getting super excited for the weekend ahead in Scotland with my friends Jordaania & Adelaide. Not really ready for the cold though… That aside, here is this month’s Taking Stock.
In preparation for my upcoming roadtrip to Edinburgh, I want to touch on a topic that will be helpful for any budding travel lovers out there or anyone planning a trip soon – Travel Essentials. There are different sets of travel essentials for different types of travel, so I’ll cover each in consecutive posts to come. For now we shall start with roadtrip travel essentials.
