Review: The Generator Hostel, London

By |November 19th, 2015|

It’s a tucked away, but once you find it its as though you’re transported to another place entirely.

Admittedly the weather most likely made a huge difference in my case. Stepping and and out if a grey and damp London, into a warm, bright and very welcoming hostel was just what the Dr ordered.

London Life – The Redbull Soapbox Race @ Alexandra Palace

By |July 23rd, 2015|

The London Life section of this blog has been a bit quite of late, and for that I apologise.  Saving for a house/flat kind of kills your social life a bit … or at least reduces the amount you can get out and explore this great city I call home.   There are some days […]

Loving LEGO: The Art of the Brick exhibit @ The Truman Gallery

By |December 3rd, 2014|

LEGO forms some of my earliest childhood memories.  I can vaguely remember spending one Christmas at my cousins house where I received a great, huge LEGO castle as a present from my parents.  Needless to say I had that castle set built before dinner, following the instruction manual step by step until the draw-bridge was […]

Apres Ski @ Bodo’s Schloss, London

By |November 21st, 2014|

I am yet to go snowboarding this season, although to be fair the snow is only just starting to fall across most of Europe’s premium boarding spots.  But, does the fact that I have not boarded yet mean that I cannot yet enjoy a little apres ski?  Hmm, why not start the season as I […]

My London Drive-in Cinema Experience

By |September 8th, 2014|

Ha!  … and she actually thought I was taking her shopping.  An evening of shopping just after payday? Not a chance!  I wasn’t been mean though, it wasn’t a tease.  We were heading towards the shopping centre for good reason … just not the reason she thought/hoped for.

I love the movies, and luckily so does my […]

An East London Street Art Tour

By |March 5th, 2014|

Avoiding the tube strikes was a minor miracle, avoiding the floods was other worldly. We could not escape the wind and rain however, and so upon exiting Liverpool Street station it was hold onto your hats, umbrellas and any other lose items you may have on your person at the time.  Ah springtime in London, […]

#LaplandinLondon at the BelowZero IceBar

By |December 2nd, 2013|

Combine travel bloggers, a few cocktails, the theme of Lapland, plus a crash course in ice sculpting and what do you get?  Polar bears … and the odd piece of male anatomy.  Sometimes I wonder about the sanity of bloggers.  There aren’t even any polar bears in Lapland.

Last week I had the very good fortune […]

Flying high over London with The London Helicopter

By |October 14th, 2013|

Its not that I’m afraid of heights, I’m just not their biggest fan.  As the rotary blades spun at what seemed like a million miles an hour above me and the ground disappeared below, I could feel the beads of sweat that had formed on my forehead.  Why was I nervous?  Its not like I’d […]

People of London, lets Stik together

By |September 18th, 2013|

Lets Stik together hey?  London is a place of many people, many cultures and many beliefs, but that doesn’t mean we can’t all get along right?

Despite my usual hit and miss spelling and grammar, my spelling of Stik in that opening line is with intent.  You see, somewhat out of character, I’m trying to be […]

Eating my way through east London

By |September 11th, 2013|

I like food, a lot.  I’m also quite fond of London.  Therefore you would imagine that combining the two would prove a most satisfactory way to spend a day.  You would be right!

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited on a London food tour with the good folk of Eating London (@EatingLondon).  They were […]
