HI everyone! It’s almost the end of February and I thought it was about time to share some of my “adventures” this month with you. Instead of boring you with the beginning of a new semester and in fact, instead of boring myself with a few other facts about which modules I chose to study this time around, here is what I have been doing:
I had my girl friends visit me from Brussels and Leeds. We went all around Manchester, tried some cocktails at the Cloud and the Neighbourhood, had hamburgers at Byron and did some more touristy things. Oh, let’s not forget the Trafford Stadium! This is how I ended up learning some more about Manchester and being a tourist in the town I have been living for two years and a half (time does fly!).
We also made a day-trip to Chester. It is such a small and typically – British town. We did enjoy some traditional tea and cakes and… had burgers again. The days spent with the girls felt like a good reward for the hard work I did preparing for the exams.
Soon after the girls left, I headed down to London. The purpose of the trip was networking but I also ended up meeting up with some of my friends and visit my cousin. Going by tube, I actually passed a sign of an underground station which I used to see daily in summer on my way to and from work. It did bring up really nice memories.
Other than that, it’s been all about eating out or grabbing coffee in rainy Manchester with friends. I recently tried out Evelyn’s in the Northern Quarter for brunch and I promised myself I would return. The food tasted delicious and the place itself was very friendly.
Until next time xx
