Recently I went on holiday to Italy. I had a few days in Sorrento as part of my tour, and one of the optionals was going to Capri for the day.
I love finding little treasures when I travel. Some of my favourite things are very unique to certain countries and some I have found at little markets. It’s funny how these little things remind me of holidays or weekend breaks.
Wow, the last few weeks have flown by. It feels like yesterday that my mum and dad flew in. I can’t believe it is their last day here tomorrow as we fly out in the evening to go back to NZ. I am going home for about a month as my sister is getting married.
On Tuesday we were shown around Cambridge by one of my brother’s friends.
We spent quite some time at the Fitzwilliam before moving on and walking around Universities. The Universities are so grand in Cambridge, it kind of makes me want to go back to Uni here now.
My parents have come to visit me for Christmas and since some of my mum’s family came from Hockwold before they moved to NZ, we decided to spend Christmas in Hockwold.
On Sunday I went to Borough Market in London. It took me a long time to actually get there (9 months) and I am so glad that I finally went there!
I had a fab day just wandering around and looking at all the different products I could buy. In the end I didn’t buy much, but I did get some delicious tea from a tea stall there.
I’ve been so incredibly busy over the last few weeks, that I’ve hardly had the time to update my blog. My social life has started to take over!
Last Friday I started my weekend off with a visit to Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland. A very busy day to go! Despite that I still had fun and saw the Nutcracker on Ice. I am wowed by how talented the ice skaters are – it must take so much discipline!
London is a bustling, busy city that can also be quite lonely. Since moving to the UK, I have spent quite a bit of time in London and recently made it my home.
After August I am planning on doing a lot more travel.
Just so you know, I quit my job because I was very unhappy and have decided to do a guaranteed supply teaching contract in London. I have heard mixed things about it. But I am just looking forward to having a little more time to focus on me and what I want to do.
I am a city girl. I grew up in a city. I have never liked being stuck in a small town. Which is why I was so happy to get out of Clacton and spend my Sunday exploring London.
