My travel plans have COMPLETELY changed.

Letter 157 In the space of a year, or 40 letters, my plans have completely changed. Plans for work, for living and, most importantly, for travel. It's strangely apt that I wrote letter 117 about my travel plans after university, and letter 137 about how they've changed and how much travel I would be doing … Continue reading My travel plans have COMPLETELY changed.

Working kicks my blogs a**

Letter 150 How naïve I was to think that working a normal 9-5 job would mean I have endless amounts of time to spend on my beloved blog? Naïve is an understatement. My poor blog has retreated into the background, neglected and saddened. But here I am, making an effort again, trying to revive my … Continue reading Working kicks my blogs a**

As I left the studio with … Continue reading Completing My Architecture Degree

Daffodils in the snow: Spring in Edinburgh

Letter 136 I like to wake up to birds singing, I like to go running around parks and hills in the sun and I like to walk amongst daffodils and purple flowers. These are all things I associate with spring. What I don't associate with spring is walking to uni through the meadows with snow … Continue reading Daffodils in the snow: Spring in Edinburgh

Edinburgh’s transition to Spring

Letter 132 The sun in shining, the sky is bright blue, the grass is greener and the flowers are blossoming. This is spring in Edinburgh; when the meadows becomes a haven for walking, sports and barbeques, the stony buildings look a little bit grander and everyone has a distinct smile on their face. Spring is … Continue reading Edinburgh’s transition to Spring
