    I felt I wanted a change (after months of coronavirus restrictions) so I went to the hairdresser to cut my hair the shortest it's been in my adult life. I loved the outcome, I must say :)

    I had wanted to do the Coast to Coast trail in Northern England for some time. While I'm glad I did it, it was a mixed experience overall. The first days in the Lake District were wonderful (albeit tough), but for most of the 12 days I h...

    One of the best and most feel-good musicals I have ever seen, I recommend this very highly! After the first visit I've seen this time and time again, and it never grows old - the laughs, the message, the cuteness and the feel-good factor...

    Late autumn hike in the Jurassic Coast - lovely sights (the ones we could see despite the mist) but rainy, windy and misty weather. Worth a try if you like hiking and can go to the area!

    Autumn 2018 vacation. Madeira was fantastic to visit - beaches, palm trees, warm weather, hills, parts of the island where the nature was very ancient, hiking, whale watching and more :)

     A fantastic weekend hike in the Peak District with some amazing views (while not too hard physically) - including the sights you can see in the Pride and Prejudice movie :)

    My first Edinburgh Fringe in August 2018, taking a long weekend off work to travel up to Edinburgh. Some amazing performances, some average performances, some questionable performances, but very entertaining and there is something for ev...

    Saw it for the first time in August 2018, after months of wait due to sold out tickets. It quickly became my favourite musical and i've seen it various times since. Love it just the same each time :)

    Marc Cohn is one of my favourite artists and I jumped at the chance when he announced his first concert in London in many years. I loved the concert - and turns out that my favourite song of his was also the favourite song of many attend...

    My first hike that was longer than 2 days (I did the WHW in 7 days) and I absolutely loved the scenery. It got me into long-distance hiking :)
  • Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid, Spain
    May 12, 2018

    I used to watch football regularly years ago and seeing Real Madrid play live was one of my goals. Even though by the time of this match in May 2018 I had not watched club football for years, I still jumped at the opportunity to see them...

    I spent the New Year's period in Athens in 2016 and also used the chance to visit the well-known sights. To me, Acropolis is very impressive if you think about the history, how long it's been there and the importance it has held; the act...

    I had expected Japan to be mostly large cities with a lot of bright lights, but it ended up being so much more varied than I thought it would be. The culture, the cities, the mountains, the forests, and much more. I warmly recommend!

    I liked Kyoto - while it is a rather big city, the city and its surroundings have many temples, shrines, gardens, a bamboo forest and a lot more, so there is a lot to see both from the modern Japan as well as the old Japan and its tradit...

    I tried butterbeer while visiting the Universal Studios in Japan and their Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It is worth trying once for the experience, but not a drink I'd ever want again - it is extremely sweet.
  • Jul 18, 2016

    Excellent experience for any fan - they've recreated Hogsmead (including shops that actually sell wizarding items) and even parts of the castle, offer butterbeer and food, and have one exciting ride (it is amusement park after all!) wher...

    I visited the Universal Studios in Japan as part of a longer trip to Japan. They had many amazing rides and a large Harry Potter World and it ended up being an utterly enjoyable day. Be mindful of the big crowds though - it is worth gett...

    I drank sake during a trip to Japan; it is quite strong and the taste took some getting used to for me. The picture attached is of a sparkling sake which is not the regular type, but the photo looked nicer :)

    Weekend trip to Cinque Terre. The villages were lovely with some amazing views and I enjoyed the experience, but it was much more packed with tourists than ever expected.
  • Dec 31, 2015

    Interesting experience but different from what I expected (at least the pub I visited), with much more of a party atmosphere.
  • Dec 7, 2015

    Visiting Tel Aviv in 2015 and 2016; it was quite warm (even in the winter) and it was very exciting to explore

    I had wanted to visit Mexico for a long time and in 2015 I had a chance to go there for work as well as spend some vacation time there. Very different experience but definitely worth a visit! The picture shows a visit to the pyramids at ...

    Wonderful city to visit as a tourist, with lots of beautiful architecture, good food and walkable. The photo is of Park Guell, a must-visit if you're there.

    I've had many great tapas while in Spain in 2010 and 2012. This picture is of the tapas we made with friends in Barcelona.

    This particular paella was made in the finca (farm) where we worked as volunteers.
