The countdown to Kilimanjaro is on.
In exactly 114 days I will be on a plane heading towards Africa, readying myself to climb the tallest mountain on the continent.

Warning: the following exhibition contains images and exhibits that some visitors might find disturbing.
This is what greets you as you enter into the Brains: the mind as matter exhibition at the Wellcome Collection.
With real human brains on display it’s a fair warning to the more squeamish of us – but if you can get over the gross factor it is well worth a visit.

After months of longing to go I took my first trip to the north of Italy and spent five wonderful days in Milan.
Staying at my friend Bea’s house and having her play tour-guide for me meant that I got to really see the city and go beyond the tourist hot-spots.

Dear fellow MAJ(I)’s,
Thank you for these past seven months.
For the lunchtimes in the canteen, eating the terrible, luke-warm, greasy food.
For the times spent in the library doing assignments.
For endless Mondays with David and Paul, sweltering Wednesdays in NR4 and for many, many, many hours spent staring at computer screens in NR3.
Thank you for all the nights-out in town, the ‘school trips’, the drinks at the Undercroft and of course for the parties.
Thank you for all the laughter and craziness and boy-band singing.
Quite simply, without you guys this masters would not have been nearly as much as fun as it has been.
I am so happy to have met so many wonderful people from all around the world – whose houses I can stay at when I’m travelling 😉
So, thank you.
