London 2012: Day 4

Ah my final day in London! This day was by far the laziest of all. I was so tired from all the walking I had done the days before that I decided to really take it easy. I slept in, checked out of my hotel and left my luggage at the hotel and headed out…

London 2012: Day 3

Day 3 of my trip would be devoted to more walking and plenty of shopping. I hit up Oxford Street and Soho and ticked off plenty from my fashion wish list to make a shoplog once I get back. So keep your eyes peeled for that but now let me just tell you what I…

London 2012: Day 2

Day two in the English capital turned out to be a great day. The weather was amazing, with a slight breeze but plenty of sunshine making it perfect weather for walking. And walk I did. I set off from my hotel around 9 AM. My first stop was the Twinings tea shop on The Strand….

London 2012: Day 1

On Sunday I left for London and here’s what I did on day one. I woke up early and left well on time to catch a train to the airport. I had checked whether trains were going and all seemed well, until I got to the train station. There had been a fire in the…

Plans for my London trip

Yeah baby! When you’re reading this, the count down is seriously on: in little over 24 hours I will be hitting up good ol’ London town once more. I will only be gone for a few days, but since this is the 4th year in a row I’m going there, I think that is plenty…

Upcoming trips #1 – London

I started this year with an overview of what the new year would bring for me. One of my plans includes doing some traveling again. By now I have arranged most of my trips and so I thought it would be fun to inform you about them: what hotel I’ve picked out, what I plan…

Dublin Day 4: Howth

On Day 4 of the trip we left Dublin and took at bus to nearby Howth. This is a little fishing town about 30 minutes away from Dublin where you have some great views over the sea. It makes for great hiking: if you take bus 31 from Eden Quay in Dublin it will take…

Off to Dublin!

Yup today is the day! Time for trip no. 3 this year: Dublin. The Irish capital will be my home for the next 8 days to come. Here’s to hoping I also get to see pretty views such as this: source: weheartit.com There is no real plan yet as to what I’m going to see…

Places I’d Like to Visit

I know, I know. I only just got back, but especially at times like this I think up my list of places I would still like to visit some day in the (near) future. Most of these places have been on my wish list for a while and I don’t know if I’ll ever get…

Study Trip to Edinburgh

After 8 days of being in London, I left in the early morning to catch a train, then a plane, then another train to hop onto a bus to get onto a boat for the rest of May 9th. Because work didn’t want me to travel from London to Edinburgh straight away I had to…

London Days 6, 7 & 8

After 5 days of touristy things and some sightseeing, my final days in London would be spent shopping. My friend left London in the middle of the night to catch a flight to Italy. That gave me plenty of time to scour the town for make up, clothes and of course, shoes. I arrived at…

London Days 3, 4 & 5: ITV Studios, Greenwich & Tate Gallery

And on it goes. Like the title indicates I went to Greenwich, The Tate Gallery but I also went to a TV show taping. Here’s a nice pictures from Tower Bridge to get you warmed up: Day 3 was a special day, though to some this may be quite dreary since all I did was…

London Days 1 & 2: Walking, V&A, Harrod’s & Hamlet

Today is already my 6th day in London, but I haven’t had the time to write anything yet. Until now! As you may know by now, it’s not the first time that I’m visiting this city so therefore I don’t have many pictures, but I did do lots of stuff already. Here’s what days 1…

London Here I Come!

Only one more busy week left and I’ll be going to London! I’m so excited. I’ll be in London for 9 days, then go straight on to Edinburgh. I haven’t seen the program for that trip yet, but here’s what I hope to do/ see when I go to London: Hamlet @ The Globe Theatre…

London & Edinburgh: Here I Come!

On Wednesday I finally got the news I had been waiting for! I get to go on a study trip to Edinburgh as a supervisor for work. I have been to Edinburgh before and it’s a lovely city so I’m totally stoked. I had already planned on going to London in May and I knew…

Blog Challenge Day 28: My favorite place

This one’s easy, my favorite place on the planet is New York City. I first visited the Big Apple when I was 19. It was my first solo vacation: 3 days with temperatures far below zero. Yet, I loved every minute of it. Since that first time, I’ve been back 4 times, spending a total…

Blog Challenge Day 20: A photo of a place you’ve been to

Paris! Oh how I love thee! Perhaps a town you wouldn’t quickly associate me with, but I have been to Paris several times. Mostly, because I used to have a friend who lived there and I would go over once every 6 months to visit her and vice versa. It’s been a while since I…

Blog Challenge Day 14: my favorite vacation

As long as I know I get to go somewhere, and then especially to the USA, I already know I’m gonna love it. Going to new places and exploring them, is another thing I love doing. To mark my transition from student to hard-working woman in 2008, I decided to go on a trip of…
