Why I Love To Travel Solo

Why I Love To Travel Solo

1st April 2018

Lol I had originally started this post with a disclaimer like oh lol don’t worry Ollie I like travelling with you too – but he’s probably not going to get round to reading this, nor is he that insecure, so whatever. Sucks to be you, Oliver. Don’t get me wrong, I do love to travel […]

Climbing The Towers Of Notre Dame

24th January 2017

[dropcap]O[/dropcap]n my last trip to Paris, I finally got round to doing something I’ve been meaning to do for over a year. Ever since my first day in Paris, I’ve been saying ‘I must climb Notre Dame’ and yet here I am, well over a year late, and I’ve literally only just done it. Now […]

Thoughts On Returning To Paris

21st January 2017

[dropcap]H[/dropcap]ere I am, lying in bed watching House on French netflix and eating chocolate. It’s Sunday night and I’m in Paris. I’ve been here for just over 24ish hours and this time tomorrow I’ll be at home in the UK trying to manoeuvre the tube strike. It’s been a pretty fleeting visit, but that’s life. […]

A Walk Around Paris

A Walk Around Paris

19th January 2017

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]‘ve kinda run out of ways to blog about Paris as a series of separate bits, so this post is going to be pretty eclectic. Less touristy, and more ‘Hey MTV welcome to my crib.’ This post is a collection of photos taken on one of my pretty standard walks around Paris. From what was […]

2016 Highlights

28th December 2016

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]โ€™m not going to babble up here for very long, because all the good stuff is below. I just want to make a general statement about how, despite 2016 being quite possibly the hardest, scariest year of my life, it has also been the absolute best. The best year ever, filled with fun and travel […]

The 5 Things I'm Going To Do When I Go Back To Paris

The 5 Things I’m Going To Do When I Go Back To Paris

28th August 2016

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]‘m really getting into these longer post titles. The more chatty types. Much better than ‘5 Things To Do In Paris’ because who can actually write a list like that. Here’s the capital of France but only five things – you have to make up the rest yourself. Trust me, I’m a Paris expert. I’m […]

Living In Paris Was Really Bloody Hard

Living In Paris Was Really Bloody Hard

19th August 2016

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]his is something that has been in the back of my mind for ages now. Literally months – maybe even coming up to a year! Yes I lived in Paris for 10 months, and no I did not have the time of my life. Except I did. I had the best year of my life. […]

15 Things I Learnt On My Year Abroad.

19th July 2016

[dropcap]M[/dropcap]y year abroad is very over. I’ve been home from Paris for about three weeks, or so. Damn. I’ll be honest, Paris seems like a long time ago, if it even happened at all. I feel like I’ve been on my sofa watching Jeremy Kyle for years and years, maybe even my whole life, and […]

Le Tour Montparnasse.

Le Tour Montparnasse.

5th July 2016

[dropcap]O[/dropcap]n the Paris skyline, there’s one building that really stands out. No, I’m not talking about the Eiffel Tower. I’m talking about Montparnasse. The great black monstrosity that stands just back from St. Germain, at the end of Rue de Rennes. I’m no stranger to Montparnasse, in all its looming hideousness. I went to school […]
