Many people asked how it feels back home. My answer would be pretty much the same I reckon, “not too bad”. I guess it because I have been being a nomad for the last 5 years. Continue reading “Café Rouge in Canterbury”

The Northern Ireland (2): Belfast City

Belfast, the city with red bricks, terracota colour, titanic city, the troubles, old pubs around the corner and many more. Strolling across this city make you think is this England?

The Northern Island (1): Gleen Ariff Forest Park and surroundings

One thing about Northern Ireland, The Land of Game of Thrones. The East Coast, in particular, Gleen Ariff is surely beautiful and very refreshing. I was here during Chrismas break to visit my old friend, Dave Tosh, wandering around the hills, farmlands and abandoned castle.

Apabila di London di musim dingin, jangan lupa untuk berkunjung ke Winter Wonderland di Hyde Park (pssst gratis pula masuknya lhoo). Jangan lupa perlengkapan musim dinginnya dipakai juga karena makin malam makin dingin dan berangin. Kalau suka foto-foto maka lokasi ini asik banget untuk dikunjungi karena banyak banget yang bisa dijadikan obyek foto.

I visited this beautiful castle as part of University of Kent’s welcome week event. Besides entering the castle, you could visit the nearest falconry, get lost with your friends at the maze and find your exit through the beautiful underworld grottoContinue reading “The Leeds Castle”
