COEX Aquarium

A few weeks I was in Seoul, South Korea! While I did do a lot of shopping (Lord help my bank balance), the goal of the trip was to spend time with loved ones and to recoup. So while we party every day, we also made a point to do some sightseeing. High on the list…

#TravelGoals – My cousin travels all the time

 At the start of this year, I saw this video and instantly thought of my cousin. She’s not as insufferable as the lady in the video, but she does travel everywhere and I’m like how?! How do you get to go to all these amazing places all the time?! My jealousy knows no limits. Now she’s…

Punting in Oxford

When you think of Oxford, I’m sure you imagine a sleep, idyllic, peaceful place, full of romanticism and students learning. It exists, but I didn’t get to see very much of it when I was growing up. Growing up, Oxford was a city much like any other to me. Shopping centers, cinemas, busy busy people….

Geocaching is a lot of fun.

    On Saturday Hugh decided to take me geocaching for the first time ever. I have to admit the idea sounded a bit boring, but I persevered because I’m such a trooper. Most of the day was spent walking around in the countryside looking at nature and it was awesome. It is rare that…

Heatwave!

Today was really really hot, like 31 Celsius, which just never really happens here. Hugh and I walked around and hung in the park. It was a lot of fun, especially as I got to eat the most delicious sub ever. Honey Oat bread is just amazing, everyone should just have that as default. I…

Ghana | Learning to Drive

Learning to drive in the UK is very expensive, I’ve spent a lot of money starting to learn how to drive only to be unable to continue lessons largely due to the cost. I’ll be honest and say my apathy is also part of the problem, because while learning to drive is a great skill…

Ghana, Day Three: Red Dirt.

Today’s plan was to get my hair done. I was super excited because it’s been a while since I’ve gone to a hairdresser that knows what to do with my hair and doesn’t charge crazy prices to do anything with it. Unfortunately, my mother forgot that it was Pay Day at their office, so that…

Ghana | Better late than never!

I’ve been getting a lot of confused messages from my friends because of my last post. Don’t worry guys! I’m still in England, I haven’t gone back to Ghana! Basically when I was out there a few months ago, I wrote out a few blog posts, with the intention of putting them up once I…

Ghana, Day Two: The Rise of the Mango Tree.

I’m here, I arrived yesterday, (thankfully) with no jetlag because Ghana and the UK are in the same time zone. But as travelling has a way of making you exhausted just by its nature I slept for the majority of my first day here. My flight here was smooth and uneventful, I just feel that…

Bank Holiday Funday.

Bank Holiday Monday was a lot of fun, we sat in the park and tried to be mushy and cute, but it was really windy and that kind of put a pin the romance. It was nice though, sitting outside on the mat, enjoying what little nature the city has to offer. But it was…

My first visit to Newcastle.

I went to stay with my cousin and her family during Easter. We had planned to do more sightseeing, but it was so cold and so awful we just sat indoors mostly and watched TV. It was very nice if I’m being honest, being in a house that’s busy with lots of people. Having lived…

Lunch!

So tasty, nom nom. I went to visit my daddy at his building site and I ate some of his lunch. ^_^ it was good. It’s pretty hot here, so so hot, my uncle just informed me that this is the hottest month of the year. And, the electricity just cut out so no air…
