There Will be no Miracles Here

“There will be no miracles here.” This is a great kind of quote for me. It’s not particularly thought-provoking or inspiring but it does match up with the realistic way I want to think about life. I don’t believe in miracles, fate or destiny but in the fact that things happen as a result of…

A Whistle-Stop Tour of Prague

Prague is a city that oozes charm and history, meaning it’s incredibly pretty to look at. Walking along the streets, it reminded me of Edinburgh as it feels more like a town rather than a capital city. So many of the major sights are within walking distance of each other making the city pretty easy…

A Somewhat Independent Woman

It’s been too long since I actually published any sort of life update blog post. That’s not to say that I haven’t started writing many at 3am when I haven’t been able to sleep but none of them have made it past the ramble stage and onto publishing. I still can’t believe that it’s been…

Three Days in Amsterdam: A Guide

Amsterdam is such a beautiful city and I fell in love with its uniqueness. It was the last stop on our interrail trip so by the time we arrived, I was exhausted from travelling. Due to this and a number of other factors, I was stressed the majority of the time and that perhaps prevented…

48 Hours in Budapest: A Guide

As we lost a day to travelling, we only got to spend little over 48 hours in Budapest, the first stop on our interrail trip. I was super excited to explore the city so I was gutted when our flight was delayed and we missed out on time there. Budapest is absolutely gorgeous and I’m…

A Lookback on my Second Year at University

I wrote a post like this after I finished my first year at university, reflecting on everything that I had learned from a personal perspective rather than an educational one. I had a wee read of it the other day now that I’m finished my second year and I thought it would be nice for…

Hello from a European Train

As I write this I’m on a train somewhere in the Czech Republic on my way from Prague to Berlin (and now proof reading this in a Berlin coffee shop). There’s a small town to my left and rolling hills to my right with the sun beaming down on it all. The trains on mainland…

A Week of Hell to the Summer of Me

Hello, it’s been a while since I posted a chatty/update blog post of sorts. Whilst this one won’t be as particularly cheerful or optimistic like, ‘19 is My New Favourite Number,’ I’ve been having a rough time recently and needed to let a few things out. I wrote a blog post a while ago about…

19 is My New Favourite Number

I’m definitely one of those people who loves to make a bit of a song and dance out of their birthday. It’s guaranteed that I will have multiple dinners, outfits and drinks to celebrate but as it’s an event that only occurs once a year, I think it’s justified. I definitely wanted to make my…

The Best and Worst Year of my Life

Until recently, when I was reflecting back on 2018, I never understood people who said they had had the ‘best and worst year.’ As I get older I feel that time passes more quickly and that I can’t do everything I want to because being an adult has to come first. My 18th birthday was…
