london: november 2018

I spent a few days in London for work this week. It’s my last work trip of the year ☺️

Whilst most of my days were busy with work, I was super jet lagged which meant I woke up at 4am every day and whilst it was dark, it seemed safe enough to explore around the area of my hotel (Shoreditch) before breakfast. There was plenty of street art and old buildings. The streets were so dirty – garbage and suspicious fluids everywhere you step 😳

All in all a nice few days – but I won’t be rushing back.

 

washington d.c april 2017

I’ve been working with my team in Washington D.C this week. It’s my first time to the nation’s capital and I made the most of a tight schedule to see some sights walking around and about in between work.

I really enjoyed the cherry blossom around the tidal basin, and all the different street art around the place. We walked as close as we could get to The White House to be suddenly told (with everyone else) the park was being vacated – it turns out the President was being visited by the King and Queen of Jordan.

The food was particularly great as there are plenty of healthy options around; my favourites were Cava, &Pizza and Shake Shack (which is arguably not that healthy).

toowoomba street art

For a city of only 100,000 (ish) people, Toowoomba has some amazing street art. Most of the large scale pieces have been done as part of the First Coat Festival which has been running over a weekend in May since 2014.

There’s even a Fintan Magee mural (the elephant) who is one of my all time favourite street artists.

Toowoomba is only about 90 mins drive from Brisbane so I’d thoroughly recommend checking this out sometime if you’re into street art.
