Today marks 1 month since I officially moved to Bristol. I originally imagined it would be filled with adventures to every corner of the city, evenings meeting new people at the pub, and weekend adventures to the beach. The lockdown after New Year’s made sure none of that played out.
I just moved to England permanently for the first time – at the start of the third national lockdown. Not my best timing, I must say, and it’s bundled with a lot of mixed feelings.

During our seven day stay in Cyprus, it’s safe to say I fell in love. With the water, that is. Anywhere I go, you can’t keep me out of it, and Cyprus was no exception. After months out of the ocean, I was itching to get back to freediving.
As fall starts to settle in and winter looms on the horizon, many of us are already plotting an escape to a sunny paradise ‘far, far away.’ Look no farther than Cyprus, a half-Greek, half-Turkish island that is full of all the relaxation and Vitamin D you need.

It all started well enough. Wednesday we went out for sports night which was a doozy, with lots of dancing and happy-blurry memories. […]
After an hour’s drive to the airport, a seven hour flight, and a three hour bus ride, I finally made it to Bristol! Needless to say, I’m very happy to be taking up the English way of walking everywhere because I think I’ve forgotten how to use my legs after so much sitting. Sammy has […]
A few years back, I ventured throughout Europe with my sister, Sam, and my bird-a-holic dad. When I say bird-a-holic, I mean it. My dad was born in raised in England, where birding is parallel to being a sport, and not just one for old people. It’s legit.
