THIS FESTIVAL IS AMAZING! i worked at green man last year, it was the best week of 2010 hands down. Green man started in 2009 so it was quite a small festival compared to the larger more commercial ones out there. Firstly the location! camping in a valley. You can't beat waking up in the morning, stepping out side your tent to be greeted by rolling welsh hills. Secondly, the wide variety of activities, not just music. My favourite tent in particular was the "comedy and literature' tent.
Due to working at the festival, not only did i get a free ticket, but also had the privilege of staff showers and toilets. Meaning no queues, hot showers and reasonably clean toilets. Also received a very yummy free meal before each shift. The only downside was having to wake up for work at 6 in the morning. But it was so worth it. The band line up was full of new exciting musicians such as beirut, laura marling, tallest man on earth, mumford and sons, wild beasts and darwin deez. Then the classics such a the flaming lips.
there's so much more to fit in but i just don't have time to recall it all!
The Stables Market Chalk Farm Road, Camden, London NW1 8AH
Very swanky, Gilgamesh boasts the longest bar in the world. You really do pay for what you get, very pricey. But it is worth it. The cocktails are second to non. The menu is very unique with unusual ingredients but extremely tasty. The decor is luxurious with a mix a many different cultures. Great if you're looking to splash some cash and have a swanky night out
Fondamenta Ca' Balà 222, Dorsoduro, 30123 Venezia
I stayed here in the middle of the italian summer. This Hotel was charming the moment i set foot in the reception. The bedrooms were very clean and there were very large windows luckily, it got quite hot at night! There was a lovely little garden also where you could sit and eat your breakfast. A really welcoming simple hotel.
Piazza del Colosseo, Latium, 00184 Roma
i visited the colosseum on a particularly wet day, which was actually a positive thing. There were few people around which meant there was more of a chance to take in the architecture in a peaceful atmosphere. Being an art student i found the colosseum a great place to draw. The perspectives and looking through aspect made for some really interesting drawings. You obviously have to go to the colosseum when in Rome, it's just what you do!!

i spent hours in COW when i was in sheffield. There are so many great finds and they are all really reasonably priced, unlike most vintage stores. The shop assistants were really helpful and gave me advice when i tried things on. If only there was a COW in london!!!!!!
17 St John's Street, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire CB2 1TW
Every single confectionary you could dream of. Mr Simms likes to kick it old school. With a traditional victorian-esque decor and spectacular sweet themed window displays, this shop supplies both traditional and modern sweeties. This place really attracts the tourists in cambridge, so can get quite busy!
3 The Traverse, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk IP33 1BJ
A proper sweet shop! Whenever i'm back home i make sure i pop into AP's for the space pencils or their £1/50p assorted pre-made sweetie bags. It's just so easy to pop in and buy your days worth of calories in one visit! A little small but I always manage to squeeze in. A sweet sugary haven for all ages.
6 Burlington Gardens, London W1S 3ET
One of my favourite galleries. H of V is located behind the Royal Academy and personally is better than the RA. It's not as pretentious as the RA and there are less old posh people sipping tea! There's always a large variety of contemporary artists both well known and not so. The shop, well stocked with cutting edge art literature, is a good place to visit if interested in finding the latest up and coming artist. A larger than expected gallery space with traditional architecture. This gallery really is a must see. Another free gallery! (well sometimes)
Lawsons House, St. Andrews Street South, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk IP33 3PH
It's Charlie's. This is the place to go in bury after a heavy night out. The scampi is particularly scrummy. Well priced fast food and friendly guys behind the counter. Open till very late, for all your kebab related needs.
Britannia House, 68-60 Hanbury Street, London E1 5JL
a little hard to find, but worth it once you go inside. Far more superior to CASS art and other craft shops disguised as art shops. Really well priced professional art supplies. Although the shop workers are peculiar, had a rather humorous conversation/ encounter with a shop assistant, a student from chelsea and some modelling clay. It ended in the assistant becoming very flustered and slightly angry/annoyed. Anyway if you're looking for good quality, well priced art supplies this is the place to go.
