I’m actually in Sweden!

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

I have arrived in Sweden and am now amid blue and yellow flags and red wooden houses. Gothenburg airport is very tiny and sweet. It’s a bit of a backwards time warp when you step off the plane for the first time. I could see red houses and fields of horses right next to the […]

Sunny Norwich peacefully snoozing

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

It’s so nice to be back in Norwich. It’s unbelievably peaceful and calm and the pace of life is so gentle and slow. The pavements are relatively uncrowded and I haven’t had to squash myself onto any form of public transport because I can cycle everywhere in the city. I wouldn’t leave but I hear […]

Leaving London

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

It’s my last day in London. I’m getting a train to Norwich this morning and then next week I’m heading over to Sweden for a long holiday. I was so sad to leave my lovely job yesterday. I’m going to miss all the art galleries and museums so much but it will be nice to […]

Dublin drizzle and trams to drool over

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

I have just got back from a wee holiday in Dublin. We nipped over there for Keyvan’s graduation – an exciting event held in The Helix at Dublin City University. The only slightly odd thing about the ceremony was the lack of motarboards but we all pulled through. There was a good speech from Olivia […]

The Collective 08

Sunday, April 13th, 2008

I went to see The Collective 08 exhibition on Friday night. If you’re in the Islington area then check it out. Keyvan’s work is always good but the three pieces he has chosen to exhibit are thought provoking because they highlight the sadness and emptiness of the life of the average professional in London. Each […]

Andrew Duncan highly recommended

Friday, April 4th, 2008

I walked around St James after work today. It’s quite nice but it’s bizarre wandering past the shops seeing priceless antiques on sale, of the sort that I’ve only ever seen in galleries and museums. It was odd seeing things in Christies advertised at more than the cost of an ordinary person’s house and it […]

South Bank

Thursday, April 3rd, 2008

K and I met up with Rojin yesterday and nipped round the National Gallery for a whistle-stop tour. We then wandered down the south bank towards the Tate Modern and I got to see the Globe Theatre for the first time. I can’t believe that it’s round the corner from the Tate Modern. We stopped […]
