Why I’m voting Labour

Usually I don’t get political on this blog at all but with so much Corbin hate going on in mainstream media I thought I should try to level the playing field a little (a very very little) and try to educate people on Labours most important prospective policies- Firstly I’m not that interested in JC…

How to survive being a Millennial

I was born in “94 meaning that I belong squarely in Generation Y and am otherwise known as a ‘Millennial’. I belong to a generation know as cry-babies, spoilt brats and ‘snowflakes’. I find this extraordinarily unfair. I don’t pretend that certain aspects of my generation or stereotypes are total untruths but I’d like to…

For the third time in my life, I found myself in the metropolitan hub that is Bangkok. While for most holiday makers, this great sprawling city is a stepping stone from which they fly to the beach resorts and the islands I would urge anyone to spend more than a few days in this incredible…

Review- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

I was born in the summer of 1994, and for me and many millions of children all over the world, Harry Potter was our childhood. Like many of my peers, my younger brother and I begged our dad to read us the books. When the films came out we eagerly dressed up and stood in…

Why I’ll never get a Kindle 

So everyone and their mother seem to own a Kindle these days, and I have to admit I don’t get it. Without sounding like an old fart, I have no idea why anyone would want a ‘plasticky’ faux iPad instead of a real book. There was a lot of controversies, when they first came out,…
