city guide, exeter, travel

train to exeter

there were no zombie breakouts and there definitely wasn’t any gongyoo around (train to busan, anyone?) but i love train rides in the uk. something about it gives me that calm… maybe except for when i’m forced to ride backwards and it gives me that motion sickness and i always tend to pick the wrong direction and by the time i realize it’s too late to change cos all the other seats are taken.

“to have or to be” by erich fromm. enjoyed it so much that i read it twice both in english and in korean. 🤓

touch down exeter.

i was expecting maybe this time around someone would’ve removed that cone from the statue but nope, the horn was there to stay. 🦄

out of the three houses we stayed via airbnb this trip, this was by far the best. it was such a cozy and charming little home!

after checking in we were desperately in need of some food in our system and planned to meet up with some of the friends in town.

travel exeter nice little get together at zizzi,

travel exeterearly mornings. smell of fresh dew.  hot coffee in a mug.

oh you evil bird, i remember you. always trying to steal my sandwich outside costa. 😠

i attended a graduation ceremony at the university of exeter and was surprised by how nice, simple and un-complicated it was compared to the ones we have in thailand. 🙄

won’t say how many of those i had that day 😬

failed #1

failed #2

okay at least i succeeded in looking not thaat cold 🙄

my favorite walk way in the campus. the picture definitely doesn’t do it justice…

after a long exhausting day at exeter, we took a train back to london where i had salmon steak shaped like a heart and suddenly everything was a-okay… 😌👌

    Lovely photos! The airbnb room looks so homey though, which is always a plus point for me while renting a room from airbnb.
