Whilst running work errands last week, I found myself next to the Palace Theatre, most famous for being the current home of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play. It’s a massive production, featuring two three hour long parts, and it’s been on my bucket list for a whole year. The play is notoriously hard to… Continue reading Pure Magic
I met my Irish friends Áine and Lochlainn by chance two years ago. (But isn’t that how we meet most of our friends?) I was at a job interview, which lead me to meeting Maggie (who’s American, but based in Dublin), who invited me out that night to meet her friends which essentially lead to me… Continue reading The Irish Invasion

These last few weeks that I was in London were spent wrapping up my semester, battling a horrendous week-long cold, and doing quintessential London things before I returned to the New World. These things included… Winter Wonderland! For those unfamiliar, Winter Wonderland is essentially a Christmas carnival on steroids. I was entirely mentally unprepared the first… Continue reading London To-Dos
