So after visiting Nijmegen last weekend, one week later and I've had a mini reunion with three of my best Erasmus buddies!

If winter was a person, they'd be that someone you've not seen in a while and are looking forward to spending some time with. Then, when you finally meet up with them you're a little bit done with their company all too quickly and you remember just why it is you don't see them more … Continue reading A Wintery Moan.
So a couple of weeks ago now I went into London for the first of two days, both of which were set to be some of the greatest experiences of my life.

It was appropriately kitted out with Christmas trees and lights, … Continue reading A Christmassy, Churchy Evening!

It's a very affluent area, filled to the … Continue reading Visiting A Less Travelled London
