I was with my boyfriend and we had a candle light dinner with the best view you can wish for. I am missing him a lot but for a relationship these months in London were worth it. You get...

"Halloween Tattoo"

Hi there! Another month is over and I think I can say now I don’t feel like a tourist anymore. And I can’t believe that I’ll go home in 2 months!

 

I still like working for The Mix. I am the HR Manager’s assistant but I have the opportunity to work one day in the marketing department because they know that I would like to study marketing. They...

"Bonfire Night in London"

Have you guys ever heard of Guy Fawkes? I guess most of you know the film V for Vendetta or have seen the Anonymous mask. Well, both come from this man. And also I probably wouldn’t call you guys. Why I am telling you this?

Like in the film V for Vendetta, Fawkes was planning the gunpowder plot – meaning, he wanted to blow up the houses of...

Some of you may already have been to another country, so you know that it’s quite relaxing having some time off the usual daily struggles of Switzerland. Well truth be told, the feeling of excitement and pleasure to live in such a big city is not going to last...

Blogeintrag von Alisa

Hi readers, it’s me, Alisa.

As you may expect I’m still in London. The last five weeks past so fast I can’t even believe it. I did a lot of sighting in the first two weeks but in this week, I felt a bit under the weather so I didn’t do much at all.  After school Tanja, Sharleen and I went to Starbucks to do our homework, study and just have some...
