Winter Wonderland – twice this year

Leave a comment Standard

It’s cold, it’s crowded, it’s not the cheapest winter program to do but still… once during the winter season, you have to go to Winter Wonderland.

This year I had been there twice – Am I going to be a fan? Hm… haven’t decided yet but it could be really fun visiting it with a friend. At least it’s a chance to hang out together for a few hours and do something different. Continue reading

3 days in Manchester

Leave a comment Standard

Machester reviewMy boyfriend got a new job and he has one week of training in Manchester. We have never been there so we decided to explore the city for a weekend. He left London on Monday morning and I joined him on Friday morning.

I got a train at Euston Station and 2 hours later I was sitting at Caffe Nero at the corner of the Piccadilly Station, sipping my English Breakfast tea and waiting for him to finish his final exam.

The first thing I have realized how cold it was. Even though, I had my winter coat and boots I was freezing. It was not Manchester’s fault, but I identified winter is here. Continue reading

How a big city changes you

how a big city can change you

This subject sneaked in my mind when I was exploring Prague in the middle of summer. I started to think about how much I have changed since I moved to London. Despite being happy for all of the good alterations that I can recall, there are a few spots that surprised me.

People are kind. It sounds ridiculous but I tend to forget that people are kind and helpful as they were in Prague and in Cyprus (review part 2) as well. I was not afraid to ask information in return to get a look or a half answer where in the end you are the one who feels ashamed to bother others. People were thoughtful enough to offer some help when they saw we struggled with something. Continue reading

Cyprus Ayia Napa

Let’s finish the journey in Cyprus then. The first part of the post is here.

On Saturday, we went to Ayia Napa, where tried Nissi Beach and Fig Tree Bay. Both of them were great but we preferred the first one! In every beach in Larnaca you can rent a sunbed with an umbrella. A set (2 beds, 1 umbrella) was £7.5 which was reasonable for 4 of us. We were in the sea anyway so didn’t lie on it at the same time. The water was crystal clear and warm, the beer was cold ;), the sun and sand were hot and palm trees are big. Continue reading

Cyprus Larnaca

Larnaca at night

I had mixed feelings about this holiday. I went to Cyprus with my boyfriend and his family. Traveling with family is not always the easiest thing to do. I bought a new book just in case to have time for myself when things are too much, but apart from the flight, I didn’t touch it.

My day was – ah, as usual… – a rush. I had been working only a few hours in the morning but I had to finish a thousand important tasks. Finally, the clock turned to 12pm and I got my bags and rushed to the airport. Of course, it was a problem with a tube so my nerves were not in the right place… It didn’t matter after all, because I got to the train station on time where my boyfriend waited for me with a cup of coffee in his hands! He knows me…. I don’t want to bore you, so just skip the part of the flight. It is enough to know that everything was smooth and we landed in Larnaca in one piece. I could take a deep breath and let myself to be relaxed. Continue reading
