A big hello from me in sunny England,
I use the term 'sunny' loosely, it is summer over here so we are considerably warmer than normal, however Stuart and I landed in north England - Newcastle and I forgot that it is definitely MUCH colder here than the south! I have already cracked open the thermals, winter coat and ski jacket!
... guys went to see the sequel to 300, an adrenaline pumping movie that certainly got me motivated to work hard at the gym this week.
All in all it has been a quiet few weeks since dad left. However, after two more weeks of hunkering down in the library I am off to Ireland on the 27th. In the meantime, I will be attending a St. Patricks Day formal and party, a Harry Potter themed banquet and much much more. Keep on reading - the adventure is just kicking off.

As a student, especially an international student, I live in many worlds simultaneously. There is the student world (known alternatively as the Durham bubble) and my world back home. This week, here in the North of England, my two worlds came face to face as my dad visited Durham.
Having spent the weekend together in London, I ...
... is difficult to comprehend. I sometimes wonder just how people manage this. Then I remind myself that so many people travel, and of course they must become homesick and miss loved ones. But I guess the 'buzz' of travelling must do something to alleviate this. It's been quite an emotional week this week.

Premier inn was the perfect stay for us! We needed to be close to the stadium of light and we were, we also had an Argos (for a phone card) and sainsburys (supermarket) close by so we were really set...
It is a 3km walk from the stadium, which we found great! As we had to go there twice! The hotel itself is an older building with no lifts, but I felt it had charm. If you look past carrying your bag up one or two flights of stairs you will see the gorgeous staff that work here. We had very helpful staff during the day who were so lovely to us! The only inconsistency with staff was a gentleman working at night did not know the area and didn't really seem interested in helping us find somewhere to eat.
The room was sized large with a bath in the bathroom! Normal tea and coffee facilities, basic amenities, but I loved this hotel and would stay here again!
