Views of Athens

I know these are long overdue! The onset of winter has made me lethargic and lazy. These are a mix of shots from Athens. I can’t adequately sum up Athens. I’ve visited a number of cities and I’ve never experienced anything like the views Athens has to offer, and there are so many vantage points from which to see them. Seeing the city from such height gave me a sense of just how massive cities are and, in the case of Athens, just how old and sprawling they can be.

Berlin at sunset

 Bethany and I went for a wander through the outer centre of Berlin, beers in hand, as dusk approached.



In technicolour

For me, Prague was all about the tiny details. I noticed cute, little things everywhere I looked. From unseasonal baubles in shop windows to hand-crafted decorations to little bits of graffiti, my inner magpie was quite overjoyed.

I’m quite excited about the arrival of spring and, most of all, summer. I’ve got a trip to Berlin lined up with my best girl Bethany and there are talks of Barcelona in the pipeline. I’ll also be going to Poland (possibly Krakow?) and my brothers and I are hoping to hop across the pond to New York in the early autumn too. The year of frivolity is shaping up nicely and I’m a very lucky girl indeed. Oh and the sun’s out in London today, I’m going out for dinner with my best mate then off to a gig with a bunch of my friends. When it rains it pours.



A few more of Dublin

Having had what has felt like a never-ending week, it’s quite nice to flick back through the Dublin photos to post them here. This time last week I was drinking too many Guinnesses and cracking jokes and having a hilarious time. Not that I can complain, though. This evening I’m having friends over for dinner then we’re going to the pub next door for shisha and bunny-spotting (really, there are bunnies in the shisha area, just hopping around). Not bad for a Friday. Have a good weekend all!



Heading East

I’m not a regular visitor to Brick Lane but I always enjoy myself when I do go. So much is squeezed into such a small area that it feels a bit like a tourist resort – especially with all the restauranteurs trying to encourage you in from the street. My friends and I ended up in a Syrian restaurant. Our table backed onto the street, which was not without its interesting al-fresco dining experiences, I’ll tell you. You certainly get some characters in London sometimes.
