what we did in BERLIN

Third year has been hectic so I haven't had a chance to blog about our trip to Berlin three months ago. It's settled down a bit so I've had some time to sift through pictures and throw a post together:

AnonymouS Bar / Prague

There were so many positive reviews for AnonymouS Bar, so we decided it may be worth going to. So glad we did, it is one of the coolest experiences at a bar I've ever had.

The Bristologist / Bristol

Yesterday the fam and I went for a Sunday Roast at the Bristologist.

Coined 'the best roast in Bristol' on their Twitter page, I was looking forward to testing this title.

We made sure to make reservations much earlier in the week because the tables get booked up very quickly, and I believe they only have a limited number of roasts to serve a day (when we attempted to order four servings of roast beef, we were told that they had ran out and only had 3 left. We were pretty much the only table there, so I guess you can pre-order on the phone?).

The food all came pretty quickly after we ordered which was great since I missed breakfast in preparation.

My gran ordered the braised pork belly:

Travelling Asia (Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam) VLOG

Finally finished editing my vlog *confetti horn emoji*. A few hiccups include: my camera breaking halfway through the trip rendering half my film unusable,  paired with my ridiculously shaky hand. Practice makes perfect though, right?

Walking Amsterdam

Hello hello! Earlier this week, my friend and I went to Amsterdam for 3 days. We did a lot (no seriously though) of walking. Everyone told us to get bikes but we decided against it, as we'd have to constantly stop to check google maps and so it wouldn't be worth it.

I loved Amsterdam. All the lil' narrow houses were so quaint and there were so many cute cafes, restaurants and shops down the many streets. We were quite glad we were on foot for the hol as we could do so much exploring of the city. There are so many streets compacted in such a small area that we easily spent ages winding around Amsterdam.

(My camera is still away for repairs so I had to make do with my iPhone camera)

Carsten Höller: Decision / Cahoots / Pizza Pilgrims

The whole social media buzz around the Carsten Höller: Decision exhibit meant that when we went to London, it was on top of my list. As it is the middle of the summer holiday, London is even busier than usual, so we pre-booked tickets to be on the safe side.

It was a typical British day in London - grey and rainy. Arriving in the rain made me glad that we were spending most of the day inside where it'd be a lot drier.

We got to the Southbank Centre, collected our tickets, and ran across to the exhibit in the pouring rain, trying to avoid the growing puddles. 

Like the name of the exhibit, a decision had to be made right off the bat: path A or B? Whichever path you chose was equally dark and disorientating as the other. It was like being stuck in an air vent and you had to feel your way through to the end - whilst trying not to smash our face into an unseen wall, or each other. 

In the little booklet given to you, it explains that Carsten Höller wanted a special entrance to his exhibit to take the visitor away from the outside world and into his surreal world. 

At the light of the end of the tunnel you stumble onto a spinning mobile of sliced mushrooms. The whole exhibit is an interactive one, so you get turns in walking around and spinning the mushrooms, which is the most mesmerising thing to watch.

Crossing the border: Thailand to Cambodia

This section of the trip was possibly most stressful/the worst out of our travels.

Angkor, Cambodia -- photo diary

We arrived in Siem Reap early afternoon, and our hostel owner recommended that we visit Angkor Wat at sunset, then again the following morning for sunrise. We needed no further prompting and hopped into a tuk tuk. 

Unfortunately I didn't get any good photos of Angkor Wat at sunrise because closing time of the site and actual sunrise overlapped, so we could only view it from afar.
