Completing My Architecture Degree

Letter 140 After 3 years of extremely hard work, late nights, frustrated days, difficult critiques and countless models, drawings and essays, I am finished. 3 years went in a flash and I cannot believe I am now graduating from the University of Edinburgh with an Undergraduate Degree in Architecture. As I left the studio with … Continue reading Completing My Architecture Degree

Addicted to Travel

Letter 133 "Why do you travel?" The ominous question that is repeatedly greeted with silence because there are no answers. It's an addiction. Can we remove the negative connotations of 'addiction' for the 2 minutes you spend reading this letter? I've seen a bad addiction first hand so I know how it can be terrible … Continue reading Addicted to Travel

Edinburgh’s transition to Spring

Letter 120 As a traveller I have questioned what it means to belong somewhere and whether travelling inhibits our ability to belong. Psychotraveller recently made a video (here) on the subject and was very negative about it, so I wanted to share my take on it. She titled it "I don't feel like I belong … Continue reading A question of belonging

Bad at blogging and missing Montenegro

Letter 111 I'm pretty certain I'm one of the worst bloggers out there. Honestly, I'm not even sure I can call myself a blogger. Maybe I can when I'm no longer suffocated by deadlines and restricted to spending most of my waking hours in the studio I'll get better. Or maybe I just need a … Continue reading Bad at blogging and missing Montenegro
