Have a Beautiful Weekend.

Have a beautiful weekend. What are your plans?

On Saturday, I'll be performing with a few members of the Royal Orchestral Society at Tottenham Court Road tube station as part of Bach in the Subways Day 2015 (and fulfilling my dream of busking in London, although I was seriously chastised on Twitter by the organizers for using the term "busking", since we are supposed to "give the gift of Bach", not accept money for it - eye roll). Nerdy and not the least bit cool. If you're in the area and want to stop by, there's more information here.

I've just frozen my butt off by going outside to try to catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse, but London smog has eclipsed the eclipse. Did you notice anything different?!

Other than that, I kind of want to start packing early for our trip to Sri Lanka next weekend - I'm so excited! We're staying here, here, and here. If you have any tips, I'd love to know!




  1. I know I've already said this (more than once...ahem!) but Wijeya Beach is literally 5 minutes from Thalpe - and it's my favourite beach in the world. Shameless Instagram photo to illustrate why here:

    You're going to looooove it there. Your hotels look like beautiful choices!

    Happy Friday!

    1. Thank you, Polly! YES, I *must* go, especially since it's so close to Thalpe! Having trouble lining up a driver at the moment ... seem to keep being quoted ridiculous prices! If you have any advice on that end, would be much appreciated xx

  2. For local journeys, Tuk Tuks are the way forward - amazingly fun, and cheap (but never take the first price you're quoted or they'll fleece you!). For longer journeys there's a company that we used that was really good...I'll dig out the details and drop you an email xx

    1. I was quoted between $350-400 USD for 3 transfers, two of which are pretty close to each other! That seemed crazy.
