British Museum


British Museum

Last week, I briefly visited the British Museum in London, which so happens to be one of Britain’s most popular tourist’s attractions. Not surprising as 1) it’s free (although there are recommendations to give a £5 donation) and 2) there is something for everyone. From Greek mythology to West African art, there are many choices for visitors in this large establishment.
I have no strong opinions on it… It was not as intriguing as the Auswisch camps (obviously) but some exhibits did catch my attention.


Flights booked!


Happy new year!

Hope the forthcoming year brings happiness to you guys!

A few days ago, I took the plunge and finally booked my return flight ticket for my backpacking trip! I was putting it off for a while  because I was having second thoughts..

Every single excuse that I could think off kept propping up in my head especially the fact that I’ll be a solo traveller but reading back through this blog gave me the confidence and encouragement  to carry on and overcome that particular fear.

So in Mid-May, straight after my last exam EVER at university,  I’ll be jetting off half way round the world to south east Asia (Bangkok specifically) for two months! The flights include  4 day stopovers in Dubai and Hong-Kong at the end of my trip which I got at a reasonable price. I do wish it was longer like originally planned but I’d rather be back for my graduation…

I don’t know what to do next though, I’m not the most organised person when it comes to travelling. People keep asking me what my plans are and I just reply “I’ll see how it goes“. I’ll probably pre-book the first two days of accommodation to get me settled in then wing it afterwards.

What do you guys think? What should be my next course of action?
