Dublin Day 3

On our third day we’d planned to go to the Guinness Storehouse, but decided to go for a fairly long walk up to it again to soak in some more of Dublin’s streets. Luckily we decided to go down a cobbled street and came across a place called Queen of Tarts, a place I’d spotted…

Dublin Day 2

After a night of good rest we awoke bright eyed and bushy tailed for a day full of adventures. We’d looked at a lot of the leaflets in the hotel and one of the attractions that was recommended was Dublin Zoo. We decided to head over on foot as we find this is always the…

Dublin Day 1

Almost Famous Take 2

Back in October 2012 I headed to Almost Famous with Matt and a few friends (post here). Unfortunately they had a fire a few months back and had to close, now they’re back up and running. So previously Almost Famous was in some obscure building in Northern Quarter, a building that could easily be mistaken…

Nokia Lumia 925 Review

A fortnight ago I was given the opportunity to try out the Nokia Lumia 925*. At the time I was looking to renew my contract so said yes as I thought it might be worth seeing if I’d want to get it. It turns out I ended up going for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini…

Managing Workload at University

Starting a new course at university can feel like you’re a small fish in a huge pond, and the workload piling on doesn’t make this any easier.
