Before School started some of us nerdy folks wanted to check out the museums around town. It’s been nice to get to know some people from class before school, anxiety and rain tears us apart. The Science Museum (Great name right?) Being that former colonialist empire means London’s museums (among many other things) got… Read More To space! For Science, glory and stuff
Museum no. 2! I had to take two trips to the National Gallery. It’s pretty overwhelming and has lots of great stuff. Many of the items in the gallery belonged to the Royal family. Basically there are some amazing things here. It’s located right on Trafalgar Square. So you can look out and see Admiral… Read More Dukes, Duchesses, Bronzino & Monet

I’m officially all settled in London now. I’m living in a Residence organized by the school. We’ll see how I handle having roommates after being on my own for a few YEARS. Mum and I actually made this duvet cover back when I moved to Vancouver. It’s still gorgeous. Wanna guess whose pattern… Read More Room Tour!
Vienna was a whirlwind tour of 48 hours. It was NOT ENOUGH TIME. Not even close. I did manage to see some hot spots before I left. The Cafe Museum (OF COURSE I went here, how could you doubt me??) It was designed by Alfred Loos and it was spectacular- Check it out: I really… Read More Auf Wiedersehen Vienna! ‘Allo London
And here we go! Yet ANOTHER Museum. I did warn you guys in the bio. Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien It’s big, beautiful and has lots of wonderful treasures inside! There are multiple sections and divisions though generally between artworks and artifacts. The artifacts really show just how wealthy the Holy Roman Empire was. Often they… Read More Wonders and Kunstkammers
VIENNA! The home of Klimt, the Holy Roman Emperors, Mozart and Opera Houses. It’s really lovely here. Walking around you can see how other cities have attempted to emulate the charm and majesty of Vienna. I’m a big fan of the Art Nouveau style so I am trying to hit as many Vienna Secession… Read More Palaces, Tea and Cakes
So after my great solo day, I was able to meet up with the talented, lovely and charismatic Alyssa. It was really great to see her and chill a bit.
