Berlin Travel Diary – Potsdam | Day 2

It feels weird to be writing about Germany when I have just come back from Hong Kong. The timeline is therefore not right but oh well, you live you learn, and now I am paying a price for writing an experience that’s no longer as fresh in my mind but still a wonderful memory, so here goes! If you missed my first segment, then you can catch up on it here. In my previous post, I mentioned that we had bought multiple day travel passes for the tube and trains known as the U-Bahn and S-Bahn. These travel passes, which can be bought directly at the airport, are called Berlin WelcomeCard and comes with a free booklet to help you navigate around Berlin. From there, that’s how we knew to come to Potsdam. Potsdam is not central Berlin at all – no, you really have to travel away from Berlin to see some amazing scenic views. In fact, Potsdam is considered another city. I don’t think it took a full hour in total to reach but …

Berlin Travel Diary | Day 1

To be honest, this post is so incredibly long over-due but I still want to write about it. It is now officially February. I have less than a week (!!) till I’m in another country for a few weeks, so now really is the time to get this post up and running!  FYI – I went to Berlin in mid-September. Although it’s definitely not in the moment anymore for the things that I’m about to write, I really would recommend Berlin. It was overall an unforgettable experience. 🙂 We spent five days in Berlin. The first day when we arrived seemed quite long since there were delays on the train track towards the city centre from the airport. We were waiting for a good half-hour to forty minutes. Afterwards, it was probably a good forty minute journey overall to reach the hotel which I think is quite standard. TIP: If you decide to buy 2/3/4 day passes at the airport for the train and underground, make sure you stamp the tickets at the machine by …

Bullet Journal Planning & Flatlays

Alas! The post that I was meant to have up last week, if only it didn’t rain! (Typical British weather, really.) It’s getting to the end of August now and needless to say, this is a late post in-the-making so expect a long one. 😉 (If you’re a follower of some time, you’re probably used to my long posts by now; if you’re new – I’m sorry! But you’ll have to get used to this, haha!) Enjoy! One of the things that I love using my bullet journal for is to list down products and ideas for the blog. These may be products for favourites, to buy and try out in the future and for review. I’ve kept these pages really simple and information-friendly – it’s strictly a list with a note beside it if I think it’s necessary. I’ve since listed my favourites when on-the-go, on my phone, using the app Google Keep. I even list my to-be-empties and tick them off once I’ve 100% finished. It sounds silly but sometimes I actually forget …

The Sunday Catch-Up #3 | Where Am I Going Next?

I realise that it has been three months since we last checked in with each other, so I figured it was time to do another update. It’s been a really rainy weekend which sucks if you had plans for going out, but great for the likes of me who likes staying in sometimes to write! (In fact, it’s the perfect weather to write in, ha.) I like writing these types of posts because it helps me juggle my mind a bit more and lets me know where I am with myself. So as much as it’s a post for you as a reader, it’s also a post for myself, therapeutically. It’s funny but sometimes I don’t even know what’s on my mind! Thinking About Future Plans For This Blog I have been thinking about getting self-hosted for a while (something that I’m still so confused about actually); but the one thing that has been stopping me is my blogging consistency. Although I don’t think I’m where I need to be yet,  I do feel positive …

Rome Diary Day 4 – Taking It Easy

We’ve finally got here! The last day of my Rome Diary! To catch up, see my previous posts in this series: Rome Diary Day 1 – But First, Food! + Fontana di Trevi  Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 1 – What the Romans Mades + Detail Envy Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 2 – Where The Romans Once Were Rome Diary Day 3 pt. 1 – Angels Watching Over The City Rome Diary Day 3 pt. 2 – Free ‘Roming’ Otherwise, let’s start! (and subsequently finish this chapter in my life because I know it’s overdue.) Enjoy! Taking It Easy As it was the last day of our trip, or technically speaking – the last half-day – we had very limited time left to explore so there was only one way to spend it: see title. We actually woke up a bit later that morning – I guess because we had spent the previous whole two days being total tourists so much so that there was less of a rush to do so on the …
