Autumn In Europe: My Top 11 Places To Explore This Season!

Whenever someone asks me what my favourite season is, I always say Spring as it’s vibrant, it’s hopeful and it’s the start to a really great couple of months.

  As told with Gifs and rage… 1. When an airline has tons of early morning flights and only 2 check in desks open. 2.

Where they stare out of a rainy window whilst they drink something alcoholic, smoke a fag and think about their ex.  I’ve been having the same kind of day in my head.

I have read the book once every year or so since as long as I can remember, I’ve watched everything and anything that speculates on the legend and have loved all the tales of Vlad the Impaler, even if they meant that I would hear the words that I didn’t want to hear, that Dracula wasRead more
