(Just to note, as per: This article is not meant to cause any offence - it's purely all meant as a joke, of course!) Ah, Germans. Aren't they great? With their Hausschuhe and their Brötchen... I wrote a nice little post about them a few weeks ago which you can read here. But, what happens when… Continue reading A German’s first time in Britain
January 2016 in pictures
A little on the late side, but I'm going to power through January to April now in four separate posts. After looking through my photos from January... well, let's just say, it seems like a pretty boring month. Two of my weekends were work meetings, and generally I didn't take that many photos. So here… Continue reading January 2016 in pictures
November and December 2015 in pictures (and an apology…)
Dear readers, Long time, no see! And by long time I mean about half a year... oops. I don't really know what got in the way. Christmas, Spanish classes, Walking Dead... and generally working life. Life seems to kind of fly by when you get stuck in a routine. Just this evening I got a… Continue reading November and December 2015 in pictures (and an apology…)
16 years later…
After being in Germany a good 11 months, it was finally time for my dad to come and visit me in Germany. The plan was initially for him to come to Frankfurt and then for us to go and visit his friends in Wolfsburg for a long weekend, but with the possibility of me having… Continue reading 16 years later…
June 2015 in pictures
What a rollercoaster month - quite literally at the end! Half of this month has been spent in England at home and half back in Frankfurt. Tomorrow I'll be heading back to Frankfurt to a weekend with highs of 37 degrees... ugh! Anyway, here's June 2015 in pictures. July is going to be an exciting… Continue reading June 2015 in pictures

So this one is delayed. 16 days delayed. But better late than never, right?
An Alphabet List of Christmas and New Year
Two years ago for my year abroad blog, to spice things up a bit (i.e. to avoid the diary-like style), I wrote an alphabetical list about my Christmas and New Year at home. It made lots of fun, as a German may say, so I thought I'd do this again. But I've given myself the… Continue reading An Alphabet List of Christmas and New Year
Düsseldorf, Dortmund and Dinner (of the Roast kind)
A little bit delayed with this one, but at the weekend I travelled approximately 220 kilometres up north (look at me being all German) to visit Charis in Düsseldorf, as many moons ago (whilst we were still young and students) we booked tickets to go and see Cro, a German rapper, in Dortmund. It was… Continue reading Düsseldorf, Dortmund and Dinner (of the Roast kind)
My 10 Days At Home
Well then. Today's the day (the sun is shining, the tank is clean...), and just as I expected I'm awake at 5am though I don't need to get up 'till around 7. Luckily I went to bed a little earlier last night because I knew full well this would happen, as it always does when… Continue reading My 10 Days At Home
Chuffin’ chuff – my week at home in t’North.
Eyup there! Yesterday I got back from a week at home in t'North, which included another Come Dine With Me with Ellie and Beccy, a night in Leeds with Anna and Leigh, and a trip to Alton Towers with my sisters! For travelling to and from Exeter I used the Megabus - a whopping 50p… Continue reading Chuffin’ chuff – my week at home in t’North.
