This is our real life in Edinburgh

Hi guys,

Thought I would check in again with our latest YouTube videos and a bit of a life update. While we're not working it's a good chance to create a few more videos so expect regular uploads for the next wee while, including a 'what we eat in a day' vegan food diary!

Let's Talk About the Downside of Travel

Jeremy and I filmed a little video to talk about the ups and downs of our trip. We had an amazing time exploring new countries, meeting new people, eating great food and learning about history, but like with anything there were tough moments too.

This video goes through each place we went through and our personal peak & pits for each location, hope you like our stories!

Also thanks for your comments on my recent post, it's so cool people are still reading here after all these years. I'm excited to be [somewhat] back!

The Hard Truth Of It All

As I'm writing this to you I am currently tucked up in a cute apartment in Edinburgh, waiting for dinner to cook and have spent the day hanging with friends and watching Netflix and I truly do love this new city I'm based in. If this was a blog entry from 3-4 years ago, that would be all I would tell you. But this time around I want to be more honest. I never lied in the past but my life was also never as pastel & pretty as it probably looked like.

Real talk: I'm happy to be in Edinburgh, I'm excited for this year, but nothing is ever perfect. I don't have a job (working on that), I'm uncertain about the future, and life is a weird mix of not wanting to stay home everyday, but also knowing that going out means spending money and spending money means dipping into our remaining budget that has to last us until we have jobs.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not feeling down on my luck, but now that this blog is up and running again I want to treat it a bit differently to last time around. I'm hopeful we'll both get jobs soon and in the mean time life is a mix of LinkedIn and recruitment agency trawling, constantly refreshing emails, and getting out of the house for walks + fresh air so we don't get cabin fever. Some days are full of positivity and welcome leads, other days you avoid checking your bank account and try to push away self doubt.

I'm not planning to blog as regularly as I once did, but I thought it would be nice to check in here and there with a few posts that aren't just embedded videos x

Harry Potter Studio Tour London!

While we were in London we did the Harry Potter Studio Tour. As massive fans of both the books and films it was basically an out of body experience.

Here's the video!

Also side note, this was filmed prior to learning of the passing of Alan Rickman. RIP to the man that brought Snape to life like no one else could have x
