48 hours in Wroclaw

Picture this – we’re sitting in my room late one evening armed with our laptops and various flight booking websites, trying to compete with each other on who could get the cheapest flight to somewhere in Europe. What was the result? We booked tickets to Wrocław, Poland for £45 return. Finally, for three days I …

Slovenia: 8 Reasons You Should Visit

With my last Easter holiday break having come and gone, I thought it was wise that I took a break from revision to travel to a new country. I headed to the sunny side of the Alps a.k.a Slovenia. Don’t know where it is? Neither did I until I booked this holiday. It’s a small country nestled between …

Ski Trip Blues

I woke up on Sunday two weeks ago with the smell of sunshine and snow and skiing seeping under my door. I struggled with the clasps on my boots and bumbled with my poles but by early morning I was out on the slopes, gliding across freshly-fallen snow with the Val Thorens air coursing through my hair. …

Hello from Cornwall!

This last week I have been in Cornwall, in order to have a bit of a break before revision for summer exams seriously gets underway (sigh). To deserve the time off, I mainly spent the first week of the holidays finishing off and editing the first complete draft of my dissertation. As that’s not very interesting, …

Well, we had Easter.   This is over: Which I am both happy, and sad about. And this has begun:   Revision. Although I’m not that bad. …Yet. I think being at home without access to my cafetiere is part of it. At the moment it feels quite hard to revise as there seems so …

Listing my life

Discoveries I have made this week: 1. The non term-time hopper bus timetable. Do you like waiting? Do you enjoy gnawing hunger in the evenings? Do you enjoy randomly walking around because all Uni shops are closed?  Well you’re in luck! We bring you the non term time hopper bus timetable- now even more inconvenient! …

Easter has taught me…

Or rather “Easter holiday has made me appreciate even more”…Because most of the following I knew already, but the longer title just isn’t so snazzy is it?   The best things in life really are free! On Tuesday last week, Ben and Jerry’s annual Free Cone Day finally arrived! A day where you can eat …

My Easter holiday in pictures

Well, sadly, the Easter holiday is drawing to a close, and it’s been busy, fun, moderately productive and definitely nice to be home. So this post I thought I’d do a picture summary of what I’ve been up to – building on last weeks post. So I went on holiday: To Cornwall…which was actually rather …

We’re all going on an…Easter holiday

Just a short one this week as I’m on holiday in Cornwall and the internet is somewhat limited – photos will be in the next blog! So I’m in Cornwall and it’s rather beautiful, trying and failing to work but enjoying fresh seafood, clotted cream, pasties and fresh sea air. As I am on hospital …
