Today we walked over 9 miles! After a classic (and delicious!) American breakfast of waffles, turkey sausage and ‘breakfast syrup’ it was off to get the boat to Alcatraz. I have always had an interest for the island so it was such a great experience to go their in person. We learnt a lot andContinue reading “27/08/15 – Visiting Alcatraz Island”
Well, after roughly 16 hours since we left my house in London we made it to San Francisco! Such a fantastic first day of our holiday.

So that’s it, out of office is set, suitcase packed, it’s go time! .. Well, after one more sleep! All that’s left this evening is to read up on San Fran and play a bit of GTA.

Last night was fantastic but we weren’t feeling fantastic this morning.. So it. was a gaming day, Nic and I have completed Need for Speed and have now moved onto GTA.. The sofa had been our base. Today’s photo is a meta photo of a photo from last night! Again, such a great evening.

This unfortunately involved getting the tube to Oxford street which always ends up a regretful choice.. It was a gorgeous evening though (between the sweaty confusedContinue reading “21/08/15 – Busy busy London town”

A lunchtime run was definitely what I needed today! It was a lone run as the other girls were busy but it was lovely none the less, 5km in 27 minutes so I was pretty pleased. Then this evening I went for a lush Thai meal catch up with my first London housemate, Claire! DelishContinue reading “18/08/15 – Miles for lunch”
