House of Tides Restaurant, Newcastle

While Newcastle may not be known for its food, with this one restaurant, it should be. The last thing I imagined when I came to the county of pies and Newcastle brown beer was that there could be really great food here, including seafood. Unfortunately, England is largely divided when it comes to really good food, with Michelin-starred restaurants like Five Fields mostly based in London. Luckily, with higher rents in the capital, many great restaurants and amazing chefs are taking their business out to the other parts of England.

Exploring Poland: The Palace of Wilanów in Warsaw

The time between each new post has definitely become longer, so I will endeavor to make it shorter in the coming weeks! It's always interesting coming back to old haunts after years, especially when you seem to link those haunts to your development creatively. Warsaw is so different from London and Durham- nothing seems to … Continue reading Exploring Poland: The Palace of Wilanów in Warsaw

First Collection by Sophia Webster in London

After what felt like months of planning, boxing and moving, I have managed to remove all of my little boxes and my whole shoe collection from the modern flat in Warsaw to a charming Victorian semi detached house only a train ride from my city of dreams- London. I even have a couple of glazed … Continue reading First Collection by Sophia Webster in London

Warsaw Krolikarnia: Sara Lipska Art Exhibition

When I think of exhibitions, it takes me back to the earliest of my years- my parents, museum fanatics, created a world full of musty objects and derelict British country houses that I found quite alluring, especially on account of my taste in books at that time ,which were mainly Agatha Christie's and some works … Continue reading Warsaw Krolikarnia: Sara Lipska Art Exhibition

Brighton Day Trip

When it comes to trips, I am usually less than spontaneous... and then I found myself booking myself a teaspoon trip, as part of a medicating journey- to Brighton. Having been there during the cold times, it was pleasant to not have a gale serenading in my face. On this trip though, I really truly discovered … Continue reading Brighton Day Trip

London Day Trip: Burlington Arcade

Since everyone within the borders of Britain has been gearing up for the Olympics, whose Opening Ceremony finished just a couple of hours back, it has been especially hard to get into central London. Being completely unaware of predicaments has come in handy previously, and this time was no exception. With just about everyone showing … Continue reading London Day Trip: Burlington Arcade

Kingston Day Trip

When it comes to recreational time, my idea is usually having a coffee. If I am not, the only reasons are usually because there is something stopping me- in this case, a group of swans. Since the incredibly haunting (and slightly nightmarish) Swan Lake, I have in a sense been obsessed with the feathered white … Continue reading Kingston Day Trip

London Day Trip: Aquarium

Now, while most people have their tourist days behind them (yes, those trips when you were like twelve and focused primarily on the available gift shops rather than the sights themselves), I do not. So this was going to also be my first time seeing the London Aquarium. Since childhood, I have been a firm … Continue reading London Day Trip: Aquarium
