Vika - the metropolitan explorer

•••
It feels weird being back in Barcelona after not beeing here for over 2 years. But once I had come to grips with how much I had missed this city, I also started realizing, once again, how travelling really is the best way to meet interesting people - and in Barcelona, that's a given. At the hostel I stayed at, I shared a room with Viktoriya, 26 from Moscow, [...]

It's the final countdown.

Today, at precisely 4pm, I lifted a delicious glass of wine with my poor injection riddled arm (vaccine-galore) to toast to Thailand. I have finally finished my last week at work after massively stressful times of having to call about thirty women to book appointments due to a postal strike. Talk about the perfect farewell week at my hospital administration [...]

Culture Shock: USA TO DEUTSCHLAND

•••
In my photography I have a tendency to view everything as an alien might, snapping pictures mainly of things involving repetition or orderly shapes.

Originally, we were going to be travelling together for the whole adventure with added trips to Vietnam, Cambodi[...]

The Great American Road Trip: ALABAMA!

•••
Let me start by saying that, for those who are unfamiliar, in the States, the "deep south" consists of Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Antebellum homes, mosquitoes galore, southern cuisine and southern comfort (the drink and the feeling) are all included in the "deep south" package. If you're wondering why Florida is not considered t[...]

Quit one life, plan another

To Whom it may Concern, I have thoroughly enjoyed working for this establishment over the past few months. Everyone has been very kind and welcoming, however I would like to take this opportunity to give in my notice. I'm getting the hell out of England, enjoy the office - bye! Ok, the last sentence was a bit of improvisation on my behalf, but yes. Today i[...]
