The Swede life: first impressions of Gothenburg

img_0277When a country’s signature pastime is fika – group socialising over cards, conversation and coffee – it might seem a peculiar choice for a solo trip. But hej, earlier this year I decided to continue being impulsive in travel and after one particularly hectic morning at work, I stayed true to this by booking the cheapest flight to a place I’d never been before on my next free weekend. Oh hej, Gothenburg!... Read More

Bitches be trippin’: Rock en Seine 2016

Arts End of Nowhere Rock en SeineIn my grimy, grunger, never-quite-sober days, there wasn’t a Reading Festival I’d have missed for the world. For a brief period in my teens, I was an avid festival goer; making bad decision after bad decision to the backdrop of heavy guitars and teen angst. When my own teen angst subsided, I stopped going to festivals – not by conscious decision, but due to an alleged lack of funds and appreciation for the almost constant time off one is awarded for deciding to study Art History (nice choice, A)....

Local lunch spots: Counter Vauxhall

DSC_0034Considering all I’ve been posting about is my galavants around sunny California, you’d be forgiven for thinking that I’m still freelancing from wherever I do so please. Holing up in coffee shops in Seoul and write-write-writing was fun for a while, but doing the same in London was different. I think I was bored. When you take the-ability-to-travel out of the mix, freelancing on your tod gets old fast. So off I trundled, back into the world of traditional employment and for the past month or so, I’ve been working in Vauxhall. Despite living a 30 minute walk away, it’s not a part of London I’ve explored before so I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for new eateries to try. First up: Counter Vauxhall.... Read More

Secret Cinema X: a total let-down. And I truly hate to say that.

secret cinema xI’ve been wondering whether to post about this. Usually, my blogging mantra is that I try not to discourage any young creative person or company by giving them a ‘bad review’ if I have a less-than-stellar experience. Instead, I try to thank the PR for his or her time, and let them know what I would have changed about the experience in order to do an honest and gleaming write-up. I pretty much stick to this and it’s always worked out for the best: they’ll take the comments on board and let me know how they’ll ensure others (particularly paying customers) will get a better time. This one’s different though (partially because I attended as a normal, paying guest and have absolutely no affiliation with the company or its PR team whatsoever). I’ve had one prior experience of the Secret Cinema in London, and it was mind-blowing. The small handful of others I know who’ve been have shared my thoughts: this is one hell of a company, offering something to London that no one else in the world has.... Read More

California road trip, part two: the Malibu, Santa Barbara, Cambria & Carmel-by-the-sea bit

Santa Barbara Arts End of NowhereAfter a brief dalliance with Los Angeles on the first step of our California road trip, the three of us bundled ourselves up in the Toyota Yaris (RIP, dreams of winding around California’s snake-like coastline in a stretch Hummer) and started to make the long, slow journey up to San Francisco. Except it wasn’t long and slow; we didn’t stay anywhere longer than 36 hours and by Californian standards*, that’s lightning speed. So to amend, off we hurried to Malibu, after hearing tales of its tasty, tasty seafood.... Read More

California road trip, pt. 1a: Cafe Demitasse, LA

Cafe Demitasse Los Angeles Arts End of NowhereBefore I elaborate on part two of our big, badass* Californian road trip, I need to make a quick detour to focus on a glint of coffee perfection just outside Hollywood. In search of quality coffee and wifi one morning, the boys and I happened upon artisan coffee newcomer, Cafe Demitasse, which opened on 16th February.... Read More

California road trip, part one: The LA bit

California road trip Arts End of NowhereAs all people unburdened by sense and financial responsibility know, the best way to alleviate post-holiday blues is to book your next one. When I returned from a few months in Korea in November, one of the first things I did was scour Skyscanner while WhatsApping my dear pal, Ally T. He mentioned he was going to LA so guess what? I’M COMING WITH. If I recall correctly, I don’t think I even asked if it was ok to crash his holiday, but there we have it. If you’re going west (or indeed any which way), you’re taking me with you.... Read More

FishWorks: (possibly) the best seafood in London

FishWorks London review Arts End of NowhereAs a child growing up in Cornwall, you’d have thought I’d have had a penchant for a fishy dishy from an early age, but no; ironically, my appreciation for seafood only blossomed when I had left the motherland for pastures new. While I’m still a long way off being able to eat something that’s staring me in the face, I’m particularly partial to a fillet here and a clam there. In my five years of living in London, I haven’t found an eatery that specialises in seafood any better than FishWorks, just off Piccadilly.... Read More
