My year so far

18:18:00

ALRIGHT!


I’m fairly new to this whole blogging thing so I thought before I go full on into it I’d do a post with a bit more about me and who I am - so here's my highlights of 2016 so far.

Berlin
My fabulous girlfriend (Follow her) surprised me for my 21st by taking me to Berlin. I had first visited Berlin in June 2014 and instantly fell in love with it. The history, the architecture, the nightlife and the beer.  It was unbelievably cold when we visited, like -8 and -9 degrees but that didn't stop us from doing all the touristy stuff. We also managed to grab last minute tickets to see Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls on our first night, who I'd been waiting years to see live. Charlotte has already written a few posts about this so if you want to read anymore find them Here.

Finished Uni and Graduated.
This was something I was, and still am, heavy proud of myself for doing. I had spent 4 years at Glasgow Caledonian University studying Business Studies, and then in my 4th year decided to focus on marketing. After a stressful, long and difficult year I found out in June that I was going to be graduating with a 2:1 which I’d been hoping to get. I had a great day celebrating with my family and both new friends from uni and people I’d been friends with since we started primary school in 1999 - so it was a special day for us all.

I’ve not got a job lined up to utilise my degree at the moment, but my final year made me realise that I really want to pursue a career in digital marketing and has also, in turn, motivated me to make this blog.

6 Year anniversary
Charlotte forced me to put this in after I didn’t include it as a highlight in my first draft (oops). So, Charlotte and I had been together for 6 years this June and true to form, we celebrated by overeating in one of our favourite spots in Glasgow - Cafe Andaluz. We also pushed the boat out a wee bit and booked ourselves into Blythswood Square for the night since we thought our anniversary and graduation merited a night of luxury.

Dublin
Yes. Another trip to another country famous for beer was a definite highlight. After finding out my results I booked to go to Dublin for a weekend with a couple of mates. Visiting Dublin in itself was great, but we had booked to go over during the Euro 2016 and were in Dublin for Ireland's first game against Italy. They didn't win, but it was a great day being surrounded by the fans and cheering on a country close to my heart. Another few sore heads and more beer sunk, but this was up there as one of my highlights.

Paris
As Charlotte had treated me to a great time away I had to return the favour. After not so subtly dropping hints for months that she wanted to go, I decided to book for us to go away for 4 days. We stayed in the beautiful area of Montmartre which is in the shadow of Sacre Coeur, making for a perfect spot for breakfast each morning. We crammed in as much as we could but the city was so vast that Charlotte's already organising what we’ll do next time we go. I also managed to convinced her to let me watch the Celtic game on our last night. I was pretty happy about it.

The weather was stunning when we were there, at times too hot for the amount of walking we were doing. We managed to visit the main attractions and also spent the Tuesday in Disney arriving before it opened and leaving as it closed.

I’ll be writing another post about Paris soon where I’ll go into more detail about our adventures, but if you can't wait till then you can read some more over on Charlotte's Blog!

That's me all talked out for now but I hope you enjoyed reading about my year so far!
