A Day at the Races

Recently I was lucky enough to get a discounted County Stand ticket for the Races in York. I’d never been to the Races before so was looking forward to trying something new, and having the opportunity to dress up a bit! I went with a group of friends, having decided that it would be a good alternative to the annual university summer ball, which also happens to be held at York Racecourse. Whilst I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the day, I had a great time and would thoroughly recommend it.

When the going gets tough…

I have about eight different blog posts currently sitting in various stages of draft form. Over the last few weeks I’ve been lucky enough to eat out at a range of different places with lots of different people, and as such I have plenty of reviews and opinions (particularly in the food department) to add to my blog. Yet at the same time, they are sitting in draft form for a reason. I guess I’m just not feeling inspired… maybe I need to go and eat some more food!

Theatre Etiquette

I was recently lucky enough to go and see Guys and Dolls at the Phoenix Theatre in London. It was a great show, and whilst not as spectacular as some of the shows I have seen, it still comes highly recommended and was a lot funnier than I had anticipated. However, one thing I noticed (that certainly wasn’t the fault of the theatre) was that some people have no idea about theatre etiquette.

Happy Birthday – 1 year old!

I officially posted my first ever blog post a year ago today. What started as a post-dissertation project/what I hoped would be a fast-track into the exciting world of professional blogging, has become so much more.

Park life

There’s definitely something to be said for just sitting in a park and soaking up the sun. Often when I travel somewhere I’m too eager to fit in as much as possible, to see as many places as I possibly can whilst I’m there, in case I never return and have the same opportunity again. I feel like this is sometimes a good way to travel, but sometimes it’s best to take things at a slower pace.
