Exploring Berlin

Exploring Berlin

A Day In Berlin   Wanderlust:  A burning desire to travel. A year has passed since I travelled to Geneva for my first ever city break.  Until recently, I didn’t have the opportunity to explore anywhere new.  By the time October came around I was itching to travel.  Booked just over a week before I was due to fly, I had little time to plan or pack before setting off to the German capital of Berlin.  I would have just…

My Norfolk Adventure

My Norfolk Adventure

A Taste of England’s Rich History:  The Norfolk Adventure North Norfolk feels like the part of England Blake’s Jerusalem talks of with the lyric ‘England’s green and pleasant lands’.  Although serious flaws have been highlighted with the lyrics of the song itself, this particular line seems accurate enough.  The county is vastly untouched by business and grotesque concrete sculptures which seem to dominate our cities.  This quaint and rural part of our country should be savoured, a last bastion of an…

Abuse and The Boiling Frog Analogy Those of you who know me will have probably heard me explain the boiling frog analogy at great length.  I love it.  For all the wrong reasons.  It is applicable to so many people in their daily lives.  It is a part of a greater problem which needs to be tackled in society but before it can be stopped, people need to realise the situations they are in.

Four Positives of a 4AM Alarm

Four Positives of a 4AM Alarm

Something to look forward to…

The Year Ahead Life can often run away from you if you don’t have a plan.  This year I was determined to start off with a plan of things that I wanted to do throughout the year so that I have something to look forward to every few weeks.  This list is in no way a complete run down of my year (that’d take far too long) but these are the events which I think will form the highlights: Frances…

Junkyard Golf This weekend, I celebrated a friend’s birthday.  I’m no golfer but was surprised to find myself doing particularly well in our game of mini-golf at Junkyard until the very last hole.  Eight shots later and my score didn’t look quite so rosy!  Junkyard Golf is a quirky idea and worth a visit if you are out to have a laugh with friends whilst sipping on a beer – you can’t do that on an 18-hole course.  And why wouldn’t you…

Blue Monday: The Self Fulfilling Prophecy

Blue Monday: The Self Fulfilling Prophecy

Today is Blue Monday.  The day in the year we are supposedly meant to feel at our lowest.  The focus today is on our unhappiness and the press haven’t let themselves down in this respect with articles on a number of newspaper websites highlighting the misery of this supposed occasion. Feeling down yet? The Telegraph‘s article on this occasion cites Brexit, the election of Donald Trump and the death of many publicly adored celebrities in 2016 as reasons to be…
