A Micro-adventure to Ghent: An Architectural Concoction

When it comes to following a map, there are two types of people. Type A: those who will follow a map and get to the desired place immediately. Get there as soon as possible; the end. Or, type B: those who will start with the intention of following the map- but what’s that over there? Read More

8 Tips To Help You Survive Coach Trips

Travelling by coach isn’t always as easy as it may seem. I have been travelling by coach or bus for the past three years. Five days a week I wake up early in the morning to catch a bus for an hour to get to work. To see my Dad, I need to catch a Read More

Working and Sleeping at Gladstone Library

Tea-Stained Photo Journal: Trail to the Train Tracks

I’ve always found train tracks to be very calming. They shouldn’t be really- I consider crossing train tracks the equivalent to standing at the edge of a cliff: one wrong step and you could be dead. Yet in most cases, train tracks tend to be surrounded by nature that (if you’re like me and barely Read More
