Bristol – Surakhan Review – Korean Restaurant

Bristol Korean Restaurant - Surakahan - Outside View - Sign

So this is the last of my Bristol articles. As you probably know by now, I went down to Bristol to celebrate my friend’s graduation from the University of Bristol. While there we went to the restaurant that she worked at while at uni, it’s called Surakhan and its won the ‘Best Asian’ in Bristol Good Food Awards in both 2012 and in 2013 – so you know it’s good already! I’ll start with the décor. While I don’t know much about what authentic Korean decoration is, I kind of know that this … Continue reading

Hotel Review – Clifton House Hotel, Bristol

Clifton House Hotel - Bristol - Outside View 2

So some of you might remember but I’ve already talked about why I was down in Bristol, in case you didn’t read it I’ll just sum it up by saying I was there because one of my best friends (pseudonym Giggles) was graduating with a Masters from the University of Bristol.

University Of Bristol Graduation, Being A Good Friend

University of Bristol Graduation Wills Memorial Building, University of Bristol 28.1.14 047

When I was doing my Bachelor’s degree at Keele University I made some amazing friends. Two of my closest friends happened to be international students, Blondie from the Czech Republic and Giggles from Taiwan. For three years I lived with these girls and they became a bit like a substitute family for me, except I can’t remember having many arguments with them: P When it was time for their graduation (mine was the year after theirs), after three years of hard work, cramming and hand cramps, Blondie had all her family … Continue reading

The Adult Vs The Child

Lego model

  When I was younger I always thought I was quite mature. I was (and am) a major bookworm so my vocabulary was a bit bigger than my friends’, and the adults around me noticed and commented a lot. I had a quick mind (which has slowed down a lot 🙁 ) and a quick wit (which has stuck with me and gotten me into trouble more than once!) and I was constantly having to either dumb myself down or explain what I was talking about to children the same … Continue reading
