Birmingham: Home is where

I spend ages looking at other reviews, through compilations of ‘the best X in Birmingham’ and lists of recommendations for place to eat and drink in Birmingham – it’s my number 1 way to procrastinate (call me sad, I know). But it means I always have a bumper list of place I want to try…

Travel/Food: Nepalese Cuisine

Dal Bhat. Pakoras. Puri. Roti. Momos. While I was in Nepal (see previous post for details of the project) we ate the staples and tried the local snacks, and I thought as a food blogger it was only right to speak a little about it. The Nepalese cuisine has influences from both India and China,…

Travel: ICS with Raleigh Nepal

Where has she been? This last 2 months I have had radio silence to the internet and so, the outside world – aka the reason for my lack of blog posts (sorry, but I am back!). I have been volunteering with Raleigh on the International Citizen Service programme in rural Nepal. Here’s a little about…

Travel: An afternoon in Wells, Somerset

Exams have ended and I am back on the blog at long last! I visited Wells the other week with my family on the long drive back up from Devon and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed our couple of hours there. We wanted to have a look at the cathedral and that certainly…

Birmingham: Slug and Lettuce

We were both surprised how pleasant it was- it took about half an hour, and was an escape from the city as it is incredibly peaceful…

Birmingham: Yorks Bakery Cafe

Sometimes work needs to be done away from the library, study room or flat. I think doing work in a different environment when you are having a lull in inspiration can really help. Plugging in headphones, listening to some chilled music (currently the playlist ‘Easy’ on Spotify for me) and eating some yummy food can…

Birmingham: The Original Patty Men

Some friends and I decided to have an explore around Digbeth a couple of weekends ago and in the process ended up getting very hungry!  I had seen the Original Patty Men online that week and so we decided we would check it out. The restaurant itself is tucked under a railway bridge just around…
