Travelling Solo

When I told people I was going to travel solo around Europe over the summer, their first reaction was usually: is it safe for a girl to be travelling alone? In a way this irritated me. You wouldn’t hear this question much if it was a guy in question. But I’m a girl, and it’s […]

Sunsets, Silhouettes

… and good company; mix them all together and you get a day well-spent. I’m back in the motherland for a while during summer break, but I’ll be flying off sometime in August to do a bit of travelling before the second year of my degree starts. I’m also currently waiting for results to come […]

København

Copenhagen, capital of Denmark. Fun fact: it was voted the happiest city in the world in 2013. Also a fun fact: all Lavender and I did while we were here was eat, sleep and drink cocktails.

I’ll Try Again

Wiped the old blog clean because I was getting far too busy to keep on updating like I intended to. Right now, I’m neck-high deep in revision because exams are right around the corner—happening in 5 days, in fact! However, today the weather was brutally hot (almost felt like I was back in Brunei) and […]
