Whistler and Pennell: Etching the city

Whistler and Pennell: Etching the city is a special exhibition at Sudley House, a lovely small museum in Liverpool. I visit Sudley House regularly as their special exhibitions are usually fascinating. In 2017 I saw the exhibitions the 1930s and Transformation, and in 2018 I went to see Fashion from the 1950s, and Costume Drama […]

Best 12 museums I visited in 2019

Last year I was asked by someone doing research how many museums I’ve been to that year and he was shocked by my answer: 50. It was an estimation, but a very good one. So, that made me think of making a round-up of the museums I liked. Here it is: Best 12 museums I […]

Room at History of Science Museum

History of Science Museum

History of Science Museum is just a few minutes from Bodleian, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Christmas is approaching fast, but I like to take a bit of time to reminisce on my holiday in Brighton last month. I already shared a few posts from it, the vegan lunch at Happy Maki, the vegetarian lunch at Terre à Terre, and I talked about my visit to the amazing Royal Pavilion. This […]

Knowsley Safari Park – December

Now it’s time to show pictures from Knowsley Safari Park, in December. I just love these monthly posts and I love going each month to watch the animals. It’s so relaxing and wonderful to see them. Our tour started with us looking at these camels, walking on the tarmac towards some other cow-like animals (that’s […]

Place where Harold died

1066 Battlefield and Abbey

1066 Battlefield and Battle Abbey are one of the most impressive places I’ve been to this year. On 14th October 1066, King Harold of England was defeated by William of Normandy. I’ve seen a few documentaries about the battle, I read a book on Matilda, William’s wife, so you can easily imagine my excitement to […]
