November – aka the month London gets on board with Christmas
November is always one of my favourite months – growing up it meant summer was around the corner in NZ, while now it’s more about getting cozy for the Christmas holiday time. Either way, November is birthday month! Like every year before, I treated myself to rugby as my birthday present – this time travelling to Edinburgh with a trainload of Kiwi friends to watch the mighty All Blacks take on the increasingly mighty Scottish team. It was a close one! November also featured an awesome trip to Budapest, lots of autumnal loving, and many Christmas decorations. Such fun!
Revisiting Budapest for the first time in over four years was an amazing way to start the month

Back in London the autumn leaves were also out in full force

Favourite November posts:
- Street Art in Seville: continuing the one-a-month-highlights-of-Spain tradition, some of my favourite quirky street art that we discovered in Seville
- 20 Amazing Experiences in my 20s: forever one of my favourites – talk about action-packed fun!
- Road-Tripping the Scottish Highlands: definitely something I want to experience again very soon – Scotland is so incredibly beautiful.
Whewph – what a lovely month! And the fun keeps coming in December… for everyone, whether it’s wintry wonderlands or coming into summer fun – or Singapore’s year-round summer, right Sarah?! I’m excited to be heading to Amsterdam at the end of the month – I know the Dutch know how to party so it’s sure to be an epic NYE. What are your plans for December 31st – are you a party-all-nighter or a tucked-up-in-bedder?
Happy December all!
