7 days in Tenerife
Travel

After 14 dreary months without seeing a proper beach, Boyfriend and I finally hauled our haggard, sun-deprived, zombie bodies out of London on to a sandy beach. Costs All-inclusive holidays are not usually our thing. But based the budget we had (which was not very much) and the amount of energy we could put into planning (also not very…

The machine
Diary

I was really lucky that I’ve been consistently booked by larger agencies. Usually that means they supply contractors with shiny 27-inch iMacs and cushy chairs. However, last two jobs I’ve worked were for smaller agencies, and for the last month I’ve had to bring my laptop everyday on my hour-long-one-way commute. An hour long one…

Ambiance One of the first things the boyfriend and I noticed was how we weren’t really feeling the decoration… There were some parts wood, some parts that looked like straw bits hanging on the wall, a rather strict flower arrangement as a center piece. Most of the (well-behaved, quiet enough) people eating here were comfortable spending £150 on…

It’s hard to remember everything based on holiday photos from 3 years ago. But the one thing I do remember is that of the places I visited during Christmas, Prague was my favourite alongside Paris.

Konigsee, Germany
Travel

This was a nice little day trip from Salzburg. There was a ferry you could take across the Konigsee lake. My favourite memory has to be the ferry captain opening the windows in the middle of the lake, and playing a song on his trumpet.

Hallstatt, Austria

Hallstatt is the epitome of a quaint little european village. This was a nice little day trip from Salzburg, the (tiny) ferry ride itself to the village was a dream. I was there during Christmas holidays – a lot of the shops were closed but luckily there was at least one restaurant open. Walking around…

Salzburg, Austria

Salzburg was a really nice city – I’m really glad we got to experience the Christmas spirit here. The city itself was really quiet and cozy – during this time it felt like we saw more tourists than locals. We took a day trip out towards St. Gilgen, unfortunately everything was closed. Ye be not…

Work trip to Lausanne
Travel, Work

For my current freelance contract, I had the opportunity to travel to Lausanne for a meeting this week. It was a lot more tiring than I had imagined… From the London office to the door of our hotel in Lausanne took 7 solid hours of being in transit. The time I did manage to walk…

Brew Box Bubble Tea

Ambiance Cozy and adorable, as all bubble tea places should be. Lots of funky drawings found around the shop, with games available for entertainment. Drinks The bubble tea here is what I wish every bubble tea place could be – offering a variety of properly steeped tea, limited for the day, to be prepared with…
