  • Entrance of the Sherlock Holmes museum, Baker Street, London

    The Sherlock Holmes Museum is located in the 221B Baker Street, London, which is the same as the address in the novel series The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. As a big fan of Sherlock Holmes and detective novels, I paid a visit to the museum when I travelled to London last month.

  • A selection of Korean food at Kim's Mini Meals

    I’d like to recommend one of my favourite Korean restaurants in Edinburgh called 'Kim’s Mini Meals'. The restaurant is located at 5 Buccleuch Street, which is very close to the main library. Although the restaurant is quite small, it’s really cosy and the staff are extremely friendly.

  • “Reverend Robert Walker Skating on Duddingston Loch” by Henry Raeburn

    This month I explored three art galleries in Edinburgh: the Scottish National Gallery, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. They all display awesome art and they gave me some insight into different art across Scotland and all over the world.
