Tea-Stained Photo Journal: Gateway to Columbia

When I was younger, I wrote a short story based around a girl living in a lighthouse. I was fascinated by this concept. What would it be like? If you were a kid, what would you do for entertainment? What would it feel like to live inside the walls of a lighthouse with a storm Read More

What I’m Doing NOW To Travel More LATER

It’s all good reading about someone’s trip to Ghent, or an adventure to a library in the middle of nowhere– but what if you’re sitting there, wishing you could do the same? Reading page after page of someone’s adventures, wishing you could embody them in those beautiful moments… to snap back to the reality of Read More

The Magic of Tea

A steaming, coal coloured cauldron sits in front of me. Swirling steam suffocates the dark room with its heat, a stark contrast to the shivering cold outside. It almost feels like it’s burning the atmosphere around it, crisping the air. It draws me in, guiding me into its warmth. Leaning over, I can see myself Read More

Defining the ‘Café Vibe’

It’s difficult to describe exactly what I mean by ‘café vibe’, but I’m sure that you already know what I mean by it already. It’s the combination of clinking cups, the tempting proximity of cookies and cake, and the steady stream of background noise. The scent of coffee beans and the comfy chairs; the warmth Read More

Tea-Stained Photo Journal: Blue Skies and Brick Walls

It’s been just over a month since Jordan and I were in Ghent. Looking back on it now, it almost seems unreal. We were lucky enough to see the city on three of its brightest days, canal waters sparkling and flowers blossoming. The day we spent cycling around cobble road streets snapping shots of blue Read More

How To Travel When You’re Not In The Mood

Last month I was lucky enough to go to Ghent with one of my best friends for a weekend getaway. We’d been planning this trip for months (back in October of last year), and after saving up and finally pressing the ‘book now’ button, we were hyped to get going. Back when we booked it, Read More

Who Knew That Tea Could Be Fizzy!?

Who knew that ‘sparkling tea’ existed? Because I didn’t. Not until last month, when I spent a weekend away in Ghent, an architectural masterpiece in the west of Belgium. I have already done a post on some lip licking treats from Ghent, but there is one thing that I thought deserved its own article: Lipton’s Read More

3 Independent Cafés You Absolutely NEED To Visit In Ghent

Scouting out new places to drink tea is a favourite pass-time of mine. For instance, I have an extensive list of places I one day hope to visit all over Birmingham, as well as other areas across the globe. The idea of leaning back into a squishy sofa with a hot cup of tea in Read More

Tea Stained Photo Journal: Ikon’s Floating Boats

One of my favourite places to be in Birmingham is Bridleyplace. This is the area that surrounds part of the Birmingham Canals, a microcosm of its own modern making. Here you can find countless shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes. And although it may seem strange, a cinema hides in the corner of The Mailbox as Read More
